You can buy pretty much anything online if you dig deep enough. Looking for a discontinued colorway or a rare collector’s item? There’s undoubtedly some warehouse or garage that has what you’re looking for – tucked away and forgotten – and the owner will certainly be willing to part with it for the right price. However, being able to buy something does not mean that you should actually buy it. Indramat on eBay is the perfect example.
Why shouldn’t you buy Indramat on eBay? You don’t know what you’re getting, your machinery is too valuable to take a chance with a faulty product, and the cost of downtime will outweigh any possible savings.
What are you buying?
You know how Indramat doesn’t sell parts to third parties? Oh, you didn’t know that? Well, Indramat does not sell parts to third parties or sell their machinery through resellers.
This means that if a third party is selling Indramat legacy parts on eBay, there’s really no way of telling how they obtained the parts, or what condition those parts are in.
Keep in mind that pictures of a product can often be misleading, only telling part of the story behind the product. A missing image is even more of a red flag.
There’s no guarantee that the part will work, and if something goes wrong you’re on your own.
Why take the gamble?
Sure, you may find a good drive or motor on eBay, and yes, you can get a good deal. However, it’s not worth taking the risk on a “maybe”.
Industrial motion control systems depend on precision and reliability – two things that Indramat products excel in. If they’re working properly, that is.
Your business is too valuable to risk adding extra downtime and damaging your machinery with an inadequate product. That deal of a lifetime that you just found may actually end up costing you more than you would have spent getting your system fixed properly in the first place.
