When it comes to legacy motion control systems, you want to do everything that you can to extend the life of your machinery. Here are a few tips to help you make the most of your Indramat system.
Clear your error codes
It may be hard to believe, but people sometimes ignore warning diagnostic messages. Just like that check engine light in your car that’s been on for a month, it’s easy to ignore a diagnostic message if your system keeps running.
You should clear all error codes with the appropriate remedial actions as soon as they appear. Lingering error codes can damage your machinery, result in preventable downtime, or harm workers.
You can clear error codes by following the remedial actions in your troubleshooting guide, but many errors can be tricky to clear without expertise. We can help you troubleshoot Indramat error codes directly over the phone.
Know how to use it
Follow all manufacturer recommendations for storage and operation. Ensure proper installation of your cooling system, and observe temperature and elevation recommendations. Make sure that all operators are properly trained, and follow correct startup and shutdown procedures.
Keep it clean
Your servos don’t have to be clean enough to eat from, but keeping your machinery from getting caked in filth can increase the life of your motion control system.
Wipe off that greasy sludge that’s built up on your motors, and brush away the fluffy dirt quilt that’s grown on your vents
“If it’s not broken, don’t fix it”, doesn’t apply to Indramat motion control systems. There’s no sense in waiting for a costly problem when you can take measures to prevent that problem from occurring in the first place.
Regular maintenance and inspection are two simple ways to maximize the life of your machinery.
