New Indramat Motors vs. Refurbished Indramat Motors

It’s not easy finding new Indramat motors. Every servo motor that will ever be made with the Indramat stamp was produced before 2001 when Indramat became the Electric Drives and Controls Technology Group under Bosch Rexroth. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t find Indramat servos in good working condition. Refurbished Indramat motors are often just as good as a brand new Indramat servo.

The trouble with new Indramat servos

Finding a never before used Indramat motor is difficult — they haven’t been made in a couple of decades. A new Indramat motor isn’t necessarily your best option, anyway. Maybe someone had a few motors stashed away in a hot, leaky storage unit. Those motors are “new” in the sense that they’ve never been used, but that doesn’t mean that they are in good condition.

You must operate and store Indramat servos in a controlled environment to ensure that they work properly. Moisture, humidity, pollutants, and extreme temperatures can compromise the performance of your servos.

Are refurbished motors better than new?

Refurbished Indramat motors can be just as good as, if not better than, the Indramat motors that left the factory 20+ years ago. You have to be careful when buying refurbished servos, however. There isn’t a defined standard for a refurbished Indramat motor. Virtually any servo motor that has been fixed can be called “refurbished”.

A motor that’s been updated to the most current version and tested to factory specifications by trained technicians at Bosch Rexroth? That’s a refurbished motor. A motor that’s been cracked open by a third party, soldered good and proper, and taped up just right? That’s a refurbished motor, too.

Be particular and know exactly what you’re getting with a refurbished Indramat servo.
