Typical third party Indramat repair is cheaper than a professional factory repair. Except, this isn’t really true. A third party Indramat repair may have a lower initial cost, but it often ends up being more expensive than a professional repair; attempting to save money with an inferior repair is a penny-wise and pound-foolish decision.
The problem with third party Indramat repair
Profitability is one of the fundamental goals of a businesses. This means maximizing profit and minimizing costs, so it makes sense to look for ways to save money any way that you can. Third party Indramat repair shops charge less than price of a factory repair; therefore, that third party repair is the better financial choice, right?
This line of logic seems reasonable, but it is shortsighted. In reality, the cost of that repair goes beyond the quote that the third party gives you.
There’s a lot that goes into calculating the real cost of downtime, but there are several reasons that third party repairs don’t usually save money:
- Third party repair shops aren’t as efficient as professionals. This means more downtime; the longer that your machines are down, the greater the cost.
- Third parties do not have access to authentic Indramat parts. Any repairs are done with generic equivalent parts or salvaged parts. This can lead to additional damage to your machines and downtime in the future.
- An inadequate Indramat repair can cause additional problems with your motion control system. This means you will have to pay for the same repair twice, deal with additional downtime, and pay to fix any damage caused by the low-quality repair.
Don’t be foolish, be wise.
There are plenty of repair shops out there that will claim to know how to fix Indramat machinery, and they offer their services at a discounted rate. However, third party Indramat repair is a penny-wise and pound-foolish decision.
You seldom save money with third parties, and the most frustrating thing about it is that the additional cost and downtime involved with third party repair is preventable.
