Indramat’s Reliability: A Double-Edged Sword

Indramat's reliability

You want your machines to be reliable. Whether it’s a lawnmower, your car, or your Indramat motion control system, reliability is a positive attribute. Machinery should start every time and operate without failure or variation. There is one drawback to highly reliable machinery, however. If something rarely fails, you don’t get practice with repair or troubleshooting.

Indramat reliability is a good thing…most of the time.

Most factories with Indramat machinery have servos that have run reliably for decades without service or repair. You may not remember the last time you had your Indramat motor serviced; maybe you didn’t even realize that you have an Indramat servo because you’re never had a reason to inspect it.

Considering that downtime is a massive financial drain for manufacturers, this level of reliability with Indramat products is clearly beneficial. However, dependability comes back to bite you when your machinery does fail.

Without experience servicing, troubleshooting, or repairing a machine — Indramat or otherwise — you won’t know what to do when that machine fails. This means extra cost and frustration because of trial and error and wasted time.

A lack of experience with Indramat failures also leads to panic and hasty decision making, such as ineffective third party repairs. We know from experience that typical third party Indramat repair usually results in additional downtime and expense.
