Before You Buy a Legacy Servo Motor

What do you do if your Indramat motor stops working? Many people start looking to buy a replacement, but replacing a legacy servo motor isn’t as simple as you might think. Here are a couple of things you should know before you buy a new Indramat servo motor.

Finding a legacy servo motor is a challenge.

Finding a new Indramat motor isn’t a simple matter of calling up an Indramat distributor and making a purchase. Indramat motors, drives, controls, etc. are no longer manufactured.

Tracking down legacy motion control products can be difficult. It’s even more difficult to find legacy products from a reliable source that you can trust. Indramat’s new owner, Bosch Rexroth, does make new products that can take the place of the original Indradrive machinery, but they aren’t identical.

You can find motors, drives, and controls on eBay or from other third parties, but there’s no guarantee you’re getting a quality unit. Buying Indramat components from third parties is a gamble, and you’re typically on your own when it comes to installation and support.

Factory repair or reman is a better option.

You don’t have to buy a new Indramat motor if your current unit stops working. In fact, a factory repair or remanufacture is often a better option. There’s less cost, less waste, and more certainty with factory repair or reman.

You don’t have to wonder if the motor was stored in a warehouse without air conditioning, or if the unit will stop working in a couple of years. You don’t have to worry about the unit’s history, or if it will even be compatible with your current system.

Instead, you get your exact same motor restored to like new condition, at a much lower price than buying a new motor. Call 479-422-0390 for assistance with Indramat factory repair or an Indramat motor reman. We can even provide an emergency replacement unit while you wait.
