Common Questions About Indramat Legacy Systems

Most factories installed Indramat legacy systems three plus decades ago; many of those motion control systems still run strong to this day.

Here’s a look at some of the most common questions people ask about Indramat legacy systems. Call 479-422-0390 for emergency Indramat support.

Is Indramat still around?

Indramat no longer exists as a company.

Indramat was founded in 1958 and produced the world’s best motion control products well for nearly four decades after it was acquired by Rexroth in 1965. However, Rexroth became Bosch Rexroth in 2001 and the Indramat name was no longer used.

Bosch Rexroth still supports Indramat products. They also manufacture the IndraDrive series of drives, a subtle nod to the Indramat name.

Are Indramat product still made?

Indramat products are no longer manufactured.

Indramat drives, controls, and servos were some of the best motion control products every made. This is why many legacy systems still run smoothly today. However, there’s a finite supply of Indramat products — every unit that will ever exist was built at least 20 years ago.

Can you buy Indramat products online?

People typically look for a replacement Indramat part online if their drive, control, or servo motor stops working correctly. While you can find these products with little difficulty, you must be careful when buying Indramat products online.

  • There’s no guarantee that the unit is in good condition.
  • Finding the exact replacement can be tricky.
  • You’re on your own for installation.
  • Sometimes what you thought was the problem wasn’t actually the problem. Replacing a servo drive that was functioning correctly won’t clear your error code.
  • Purchasing a replacement Indramat unit is rarely your best option. Factory repair is faster, easier, more cost effective, and more reliable.
