Indramat controls do not fail very often; Indramat made some of the most reliable industrial motion control products you could buy. However, these legacy motion control products haven’t been manufactured in decades and you can’t buy them new anymore. That means that you have to take care of the unit that you already have. Because these controls almost never fail, it’s easy to make a common Indramat control repair mistake: contacting a generic third party for repair. Getting a professional Indramat factory repair is the easiest, most efficient, and most economic way to repair your Indramat control.
The risks of third party repair
You can’t quickly diagnose and repair the problem with an Indramat system unless you are experienced with Indramat motion control products. Most third party repair houses aren’t familiar with servicing or repairing Indramat products, so there’s going to be a fair amount of trial and error.
Going to a generic third party servo repair shop seldom saves you money. The cost of downtime with a third party repair almost always exceeds the cost of a factory repair. In some cases you have to pay for the repair twice — once for the inadequate third party repair and once for the proper repair — as well as any additional damage from that initial repair attempt.
Third parties typically take longer to repair Indramat controls, which means additional preventable downtime.
Only Bosch Rexroth — the company that now owns and services Indramat products — has access to genuine Indramat replacement parts. Third parties perform repairs using generic parts or salvaged Indramat parts.
Workarounds, patch jobs, and low quality repairs compromise the safety of your motion control system. Don’t put your workers at risk of injury.
Even if a third party gets your system up and running again, can you really be confident in that repair? An inadequate repair may damage your unit beyond replacement, forcing you to prematurely replace your drive.
