Is It Worth Your Time to Repair Your Servos?

This isn’t a question of whether or not it’s worth repairing Indramat servos. Repairing industrial servo motors is the most cost-effective means of restoring your system in most situations. The question is whether or not it’s worth your time to personally attempt to repair your servos. In most situations, it’s not.

Servo repair makes sense.

Indramat servo motors were the gold standard in industrial motion control for a long time. While servos are no longer made under the Indramat name, Indramat servos remain as some of the most reliable motion control products in use today.

Servos with the Indramat stamp work like a charm for decades without any issue. When they do finally need attention, a good repair can greatly extend the lifetime of your servos.

You should always look to repair your servos before replacing them, but that doesn’t mean you personally need to make those repairs.

It doesn’t make sense for you to repair your servos, though.

Maybe you’re pretty handy, and you know a thing or two about mechanics. You work on cars or bikes or small engines in your spare time, and you enjoy fixing things. You may even be the go-to guy at your facility when things need fixing… things that often need fixing, most likely, not Indramat machinery that you’ve never even seen outside the cabinet.

That’s great, and there’s something to be said for a hands on approach and a DIY attitude, but your business and your hobbies should be separate. While it’s completely feasible that you could make a good quality repair, there are a few questions you should ask yourself.

  • Is attempting to repair an industrial servo motor the best use of your time for your business?
  • Can you afford the cost of downtime while you try and figure out how to fix the problem?
  • Are you willing to lose additional time and money if your repair doesn’t hold up?
