When you have trouble with your Indramat components, you have the option to repair or replace them. Replace vs. repair Indramat components?
Here are some factors you should consider when making your decision:
- Is there a current replacement for this particular component? Rexroth has IndraDrive drives, IndraDyn servomotors, and IndraControl controllers. The similarities in the names is not an accident. Rexroth acquired Indramat in the 20th century, and the new Rexroth components can in many cases be direct substitutes for comparable Indrmat components. We can help you identify the best replacements for your needs.
- The severity of the damage is also a factor. Rexroth still supports most Indramat components. However, we have sometimes seen Indramat components which have had third-party repairs that make them impossible to fix. It is also possible that you could have enough damage, in the case of an explosion or fire in your facility, for example, that your component cannot be repaired.
- Do you have a warranty? It’s been a long time since Indramat was in business, but if you’ve gotten a recent factory repair or reman, you may have a current warranty. Remember, third party repair attempts will void your warranty. If you’ve resisted that temptation, though, any repairs through us will have warranties for up to two years.
What’s the cost?
In general, repairing Indramat components is less expensive than replacing them, but it may not always be the best option. Sometimes a replacement is faster, and extra downtime may be more significant to your budget than the price difference.
We can give you a price on both options, so you can make an informed decision. We also have the largest stock of emergency replacement units in the nation. We may be able to give you the speed of a replacement at the price of a repair. Replace vs. repair Indramat components isn’t always and either/or.
