You eventually need to service, repair, or replace your Indramat servo motor. It’s not that Indramat servos fail very often — the opposite is true. We see Indramat motors operating for two or three decades without ever needing repair. All machines require some attention eventually, however. There’s an easy way to replace an Indramat servo motor, and then there’s a hard way.
Replacing an Indramat servo motor the hard way
While it’s tempting to try to replace your servo on your own, we do not recommend this. People think that they can save some money by finding a cheap Indramat servo motor online and swapping it out themselves. This rarely turns out to be the case, however. We find that the DIY approach typically results in extra expense, extra downtime, and a phone call to Indramat professionals.
Finding legacy Indramat motors can be difficult. Indramat no longer manufactures servo motors. The units that you find are almost always used or refurbished. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but there’s no way of knowing the product history. Was the motor stored properly, and was it used properly?
Third parties don’t always know what they’re dealing with, either. You might get the wrong unit, even though you thought you were ordering the correct motor. Always replace your Indramat products with a unit that has an identical type code.
Even if you track down a replacement servo, this might not be the best option. We serve some very intelligent, capable, and mechanically savvy Indramat operators. However, being capable of replacing an Indramat servo doesn’t mean that it’s in your best interest to do the repair on your own.
Unless you’re well-versed in Indramat servo repair and replacement, there will be a fair amount of guessing, checking, trial, and error when it comes to replacing your servo. This leads to extra cost and downtime. Calling professionals who specialize in Indramat repair and replacement is the fastest, most economical, and most convenient way to bring your system back to life.
