Many nonessential factories are having some downtime. Did you know you can take advantage of scheduled downtime to take care of pesky Rexroth or Indramat problems that you have been ignoring?
Error messages cleared while you were in full operations are signals that something is wrong. If your Rexroth or Indramat servo drive or servomotor kept showing an error code that you couldn’t solve but that didn’t impact how it performed, you might have just cleared it and kept on going.
We’re not saying that’s a good thing to do, but we know it happens.
Unavoidable downtime is a great opportunity to get rid of errors and correct problems.
Most error codes start with an E or an F. Error codes with an E, like E206, are different from F codes. F codes generally signal failures. When something fails, operations stop completely. But E codes may signal errors rather than failures. Errors are signals that something is not right. They could potentially become a serious problem in the future. That’s why it makes sense to fix them as soon as possible.
Some of them escalate quickly to a status that requires a stop but others can just keep going for a long before they actually destroy anything. If your technicians have been clearing error codes and doing nothing about them, it’s time to fix them.
Think of downtime as the perfect time to give your troublesome Indramat and Rexroth servos a checkup and get small problems resolved before they become bigger problems. Call us for help if you have reoccurring error codes. We can walk you through fixing error codes or provide the service and parts you need to get rid of them forever. While you’re at it, use downtime to get manuals and spare cables too.
