Short of an explosion, unscheduled downtime is the biggest issue for most manufacturing facilities. Whether you’ve got a big problem or a small one, if you have to shut down the line for any period of time, you’re looking at cost overruns, scheduling issues, and unhappy customers. Fortunately, Rexroth has always been concerned with downtime.
Rexroth’s modular design of motion control components makes it quick and easy to change out components with little to no downtime. We can provide emergency replacement units for Rexroth electric motion control, so you experience minutes rather than days of downtime while your components are being repaired or remanufactured at the factory.
You must have a known good backup of the information in your system’s memory for this quick and painless switch out to work, so make sure you keep a backup. If you do, the modular design of your Rexroth motion control system means we can replace what needs replacing without interfering with anything else.
A closely related benefit is the fact that Rexroth electric motion control devices are not repaired on the machine. Remove the broken module, pop in the emergency replacement component, and you’re back up and running.
Factory repair gives you back your component as good as new, usually with a new warranty. Change it out for your emergency replacement unit if you want to. It’s good as knew — or even better.
