Indramat Repair or Reman?

Indramat CLC-D


Indramat made some of the best motion control systems on the planet, but they were acquired in the 20th century by Rexroth, and they no longer exist as a separate company. Indramat now is basically the electrical drive and control division of Bosch Rexroth.  This means that you can’t exactly drive up to the Indramat store and buy a new unit when your current Indramat machinery breaks down.

You can get that machinery fixed, however.  When you’re considering Indramat repair, there are two main options: repairing your existing unit, or opting for a reman unit. There are pros and cons to both choices. Here’s a breakdown of the key differences between Indramat repair and reman, to help you make the best decision for your business.

Indramat repair

Repair is often the more affordable option, since it simply involves fixing the existing product. Your Indramat component will be throughly checked and tested, and any nonworking elements will be replaced.

This is not like getting a handyman in to fix your unit up with duct tape and a bobby pin. Rexroth doesn’t sell spare parts or provide specs to third party repair places. They, however, have access to all the original parts.

If an original part has changed over time as technology advances, the newest part will be used to replace the broken part. This can result in your unit coming back to you not just like new, but better than new.

Repairs typically come with a one-year warranty.


Remanufacturing, on the other hand, involves completely rebuilding the product from scratch. This is usually more expensive, but it can provide peace of mind knowing that your product is essentially brand new.

In a reman situation, all the wearing parts are replaced and the housing is relacquered. Your unit comes back to you like-new, with a two-year warranty.

You also have the option of taking a remanufactured unit from our shelf. We have the largest selection of remanufactured Indramat units in the nation, and we can get you the one you need fast. This cuts downtime and gets you back up and running immediately.
