Third Party Servo Repair: A Slippery Slope

Here’s the progression. You call a third party servo repair shop to fix your Indramat system. They patch up your servos with solder and generic parts that are “close enough” to OEM parts. Your system can operate again, but the poor quality repair further damages your servos. This leads to extra downtime and extra repair costs.

Have you ever walked on a slippery slope?

Slippery slope arguments tend to exaggerate the outcome of a series of events.

If I lend you a pen today, you’re going to ask to borrow my car tomorrow; the next thing I know, you’ve stolen my identity and moved into my home.

If you call a third party servo repair house… your factory will burst into flames.

Clearly, it isn’t reasonable to assume that lending a pencil to a friend will conclude in identity theft, and a third party servo repair company won’t leave you with a pile of ashes.

However, it is reasonable to say that someone who walks on a slippery slope might fall. What happens after the fall, though? That person might be completely fine. They might bruise an elbow or sprain a wrist. Also, they might slide down the hillside to their doom.

Some slopes are steeper and more slippery than others, but it is almost never a good idea to navigate a slippery slope when you have an alternative.

Third party servo repair comes with risk.

A third party repair can result in a solid repair that saves you a few bucks. Or a simple attempt to save a few bucks can quickly turn into hours of preventable downtime and thousands of dollars in additional repairs.
