What do you do when your servo motor or drive control stops working? You don’t just throw it away and buy a new one. Your factory machinery isn’t disposable, so you repair your system. Machines don’t last forever, though; you eventually have to replace your old motion control components. Obviously you opt for a repair when your machinery is just a few years old. But what about when your 15, 20, or 30-year-old servo motor stops working? It becomes less clear whether you should repair or replace your components. There’s another option, too: Indramat REMAN.
When it comes to legacy products – such as Indramat motion control products – REMAN is the way to go. Not only do you extend the life of your machinery, but you also save money, and maximize your return on investment.
What is Indramat REMAN?
Remanufacturing – or just reman – is the rebuilding of a component to original factory standards. This means that a remanufactured unit is going to be restored to the same condition it was in when it left the manufacturer. A remanufacture may be done with a combination of reused, new, and repaired parts.
With Indramat REMAN, all parts are completely examined and thoroughly cleaned, and all worn parts are replaced. A remanufactured unit really is like new. In some cases, an Indramat REMAN improves your product and makes it better than when you first bought it.
Throughout history, mankind has searched in vain to find the secret to a longer lifetime. We searched for the fountain of youth. We fantasized about magical portraits that will age so we don’t have to. Today, we use tonics and serums to give the appearance of youth, but we still haven’t found a way to effectively increase the duration of our lives.
Increasing the lifetime of your servos is easy, however. REMAN extends the life of a product. Restoring a motor to its original condition helps ensure that you get the longest life possible.
Help the environment
The Three R’s – reduce, reuse, recycle – provide some good advice. The longer you use the same product, the better it is for the environment. Indramat REMAN helps reduce waste and decreases the amount of materials that you use.
It’s important to note that remanufacturing isn’t just recycling, and it’s much more than just a repair. A repair gets your unit functioning properly. A remanufacture restores your unit to original manufacturer specifications.
In most cases, REMAN is much more affordable and cost effective than buying a new unit. In other words, remanufacturing helps save money. Indramat’s modular design means that units can be swapped out quickly and easily to help reduce downtime.
Plus, remanufacturing your components costs less than buying an entirely new motion control system. Once you get to the point where upkeep is more expensive than buying a new system, you can make the switch, but preemptively upgrading wastes money.
