Avoiding downtime with your Indramat and Rexroth equipment is probably high on your list of priorities or maybe right at the top if you’re in charge of Rexroth or Indramat maintenance. So what are our tips for ways to avoid downtime?
Do routine checks on cables
Just because your Indramat equipment has been running without problems longer than some of your workers might have been alive doesn’t mean that it can’t give you hiccups sooner rather than later. The best way to make sure things will continue to run smoothly is to do regular checks on your Rexroth cables and catch things before they break. You probably don’t wait till your tires on your car explode because of wear—why do the same for your equipment? Cables are typically the first to give trouble and are the first replacement needed.
Keep it clean
