A bud is the first sign of leaf, limb, or flower. A bud is small and unassuming, but it’s also an indication that something more significant will eventually appear. If you cut, clip, or nip a bud, you prevent that flower from blooming, or that limb from growing. In other words, you remove something small and insignificant to prevent something more substantial from occurring. When it comes to handling an Indramat error, you want to nip it in the bud.
Fix problems before they occur
It’s easier to deal with a small bud than a large unruly limb that threatens to fall on your home. The same is true for an Indramat error. You want to resolve small issues with your Indramat system before they turn into large, expensive, and potentially dangerous problems.
Regular maintenance and inspection can help eliminate unscheduled downtime, but you can’t completely prevent errors from occurring.
Fortunately, Indramat motion control systems keep you up to date with your system’s operating status. They will tell you if everything is working properly, and they also tell you if there’s a hiccup. It’s possible for an error code to strike from the blue, but you often have a bit of warning.
Pay attention to your diagnostic messages
Not all diagnostic messages are bad. Sure, some indicate a fatal error, but some messages simply say that everything is fine. Sometimes a warning diagnostic message heralds an Indramat error.
If you see an Indramat error code, or a warning message, you need to take action quickly. One of the biggest mistakes that you can make is ignoring a warning diagnostic message; it’s equivalent of ignoring the check engine light in your vehicle.
You think to yourself, “I’ll fix it next week”, but the problem with that mentality is, you never get around to fixing it so long as it keeps working. This can lead to catastrophic failure, an enormous financial burden, and it puts your workers in danger.
Nip your problems in the bud. Resolve Indramat errors before they shut your system down, destroy your machinery, or worse. Call 479-422-0390 for immediate Indramat support, repair, or maintenance.
