Can You Still Buy Indramat Servo Motors?

Indramat motion control systems are legacy. This means that these systems are no longer made. While you can still buy Indramat servo motors, drives, controls, and other Indramat products, you must be careful during the process. Call 479-422-0390 for professional Indramat support.

Indramat servos are no longer manufactured

All of the Indramat servo motors used today were made at least twenty years ago. Indramat got its start in 1958, and was acquired by Rexroth in 1965. It wasn’t until the early 1980s that Indramat became a household name, however. The company introduced the AC brushless servo motor in 1979, which quickly became the standard for industrial motion control systems.

In 2001, Robert Bosch GmbH acquired both Indramat and Rexroth. The Indramat name was no longer used after this point. Bosch Rexroth still services Indramat products today, however.

Things to remember when buying an Indramat servo motor

You can still get a replacement Indramat servo even though they haven’t been made in a couple of decades. While the supply is finite, Indramat industrial servos were some of the best ever made. Many of these motors still run strong to this day. However, you must be careful while trying to buy a replacement Indramat servo motor.

There’s no such thing as “new” Indramat servos. This is more than a matter of semantics. Even a motor that was never used before can be compromised if it wasn’t stored correctly. Generally speaking, a factory refurbished, factory repaired, or remanufactured unit will be better than a never used unit because it was inspected and tested more recently.

You must replace your defective unit with a unit that has an identical type code. This helps avoid unnecessary downtime, repairs, and other financial costs.

You don’t always know what you’re going to get. We’ve seen Indramat products that look fine on the outside, but are held together inside with duct tape and solder.

Indramat factory repair, or an Indramat REMAN, can restore your unit to like new condition. You don’t have to buy a new Indramat servo motor. A factory repair is often the fastest, most reliable, and most cost effective option when your servos stop working. We offer Indramat factory repairs with a 24 hour turnaround.
