Indramat products last for such a long time that people typically don’t know what to do when they wear out. It’s pretty common for the Indramat servos in your factory machines to be older than the engineers working on your factory floor. Then one day the servo stops working. You open the cabinet and see the name Indramat. No one has heard of Indramat, and a quick search tells you that the company no longer exists as of 2001. Here’s some information to consider if you’re looking to replace your Indramat MHD motors.
Indramat products are legacy
While Bosch Rexroth – the company that absorbed Indramat – still supports Indramat motion control products, they do not manufacture new Indramat parts. Every Indramat motor, drive, or control that is ever going to exist already exists.
Finding legacy parts can be challenging, and finding those parts in good condition from a reliable source can be an even bigger challenge.
You can find plenty of Indramat MHD motors on eBay, but buying Indramat products on eBay isn’t worth the risk.
A factory repair or reman could be better options
Replacing Indramat MHD motors isn’t necessarily your best bet. People see an error code, realize that their motor is 20+ years old, get discouraged that all of the local repair shops have never heard of Indramat, and assume that they need to just buy a new one.
This isn’t the case, however. More often than not, a factory repair or a remanufacture are much better options.
