“Out with the old, in with the new” —it’s a great mantra for produce. It’s a terrible saying when it comes to motion control systems, however. Indramat motion control products are all legacy products. This means that they are no longer manufactured. However, you don’t have to replace your Indramat system just because it’s old. There’s a lot of life left in your legacy servos call 479-422-0390 for Indramat service and repair.
Old does not mean obsolete
Nobody is going to try and convince you that Indramat products aren’t old. They most certainly are. There hasn’t been an drive, control, or servo built with the Indramat stamp on it since the turn of the century. However, you can still find Indramat systems running smoothly across the globe. Many of these systems have yet to be serviced.
That simple fact speaks volumes about the quality, reliability, and durability of Indramat products. Indramat made some of the world’s best motion control products, and these systems can continue running for years to come with a little maintenance.
OK, it’s not obsolete, but when should I upgrade?
You don’t want to update your system prematurely. Motion control systems are a big investment, and replacing your machinery before you have to is a waste of money. More often than not, a little repair can significantly extend the lifetime of your machinery and maximize your return on investment.
So how do you know if you should replace your legacy motion control system?
As long as your system runs reliably, the technology isn’t holding you back, and you can still get service and support for your system, there’s no need to replace your legacy motion control system.
Bosch Rexroth still offers support for Indramat legacy products. An Indramat REMAN updates your product to the latest technical revision. In many cases this means that your unit gets an upgrade with newer components than when it was first installed in your factory.
Call 479-422-0390 for Indramat REMAN, factory repair services, retrofitting, and any of your Indramat motion control needs. We can also help you transition to a newer Rexroth system when it’s time to retire your Indramat machines.
