4 Tips to Prevent Indramat Servo Errors

Sometimes clearing Indramat servo errors is a simple task. Check a cable connection here, reset some parameters there, and you’re good to go. Sometimes clearing Indramat error codes is a long, tedious, and expensive process.

While you can hope that your Indramat servo errors are always easy fixes, you’re better off doing what you can to prevent those errors from popping up in the first place. Here are a few tips to prevent Indramat servo errors.

Follow manufacturer instructions

Your Indramat project planning manual has detailed information regarding how your Indramat products should be used.

It provides specific installation instructions and also indicates the conditions that your machinery should be used in.

Ignoring the information in your project planning manual is sure to lead to error codes. We can provide you with a replacement manual in case you’ve lost yours.

Schedule regular maintenance

Some Indramat products are considered maintenance-free. That doesn’t mean you can neglect your entire motion control system, however.

Take time to inspect and maintain your Indramat machinery. This can help you identify small problems and fix them before they become big, expensive problems.

Avoid temporary fixes

Sure, a quick fix gets you by for a while. The problem is that temporary repairs often last longer than you intended.

That temporary fix can end up causing irreversible damage to your machines, and end up costing you way more money than getting it fixed the right way the first time.

A temporary servo repair is a ticking time bomb.

Make repairs as needed

This goes along with avoiding temporary fixes.

Let’s say your car starts making strange noises. You don’t ignore the noises, and you don’t turn up the radio to drown out the noises. Instead you call an expert who can tell you waht’s wrong and fix the problem for you.
