Refurbishing with iGAM 

Why is refurbishing necessary? 

Refurbishing your equipment isn’t just a nice way to freshen up your production line; it’s a necessity for the longevity of your industrial robots and manufacturing equipment. 

No matter if it is a welding KUKA robot that only works for a few hours during the day, or if it's a servo drive that runs day and night, your equipment needs repair at some point. 

Refurbishing ensures that your equipment is: 

  • Running according to manufacturer standards 
  • Safe for employees to work with 
  • Able to work effectively for as long as possible 

Without consistently repairing and maintaining your equipment, you run the risk of having dangerous and malfunctioning equipment that could potentially cost your company serious cash. 

Benefits of refurbishing your equipment 

Let’s go over the benefits of refurbishing. This is what you can expect when you invest in the quality of your equipment by refurbishing: 

  • Improved safety: It can be dangerous to work with equipment that hasn’t been maintained or repaired on a regular basis. When equipment starts to break down, it can become unpredictable, meaning your employees’ safety could be compromised if the machine has electrical or motor issues. Refurbishing equipment gives you and your staff peace of mind that equipment will function as it should. 
  • Considerable cost savings: Refurbishing can be considered an investment. When you invest in the quality of your equipment, it will last longer and require less repairs over time than equipment that hasn’t been refurbished. Plus, the cost of downtime caused by broken equipment can eat away at your bottom line. Prevent downtime by taking your equipment to the shop and save thousands of dollars. 
  • Increased productivity: As mentioned, refurbishing your equipment means less downtime, which increases your overall productivity. The more product you can manufacture, the more demand you can take on, which leads to growth for your company. 
  • Leaner manufacturing: Your equipment will use less energy when it is properly cared for. This method of lean manufacturing is called TPM, or Total Productive Maintenance. Lean manufacturing not only improves manufacturing in all areas, but it also makes your company look better by presenting a more sustainable manufacturing process. 
  • Improved product quality: The quality of your product will improve when you refurbish your equipment. Malfunctioning equipment has poor repeatability and cannot perform at an optimum level. This could mean hundreds or even thousands of faulty products before you catch the error, leading to huge costs in recalls. Save company face and your bottom line by refurbishing equipment regularly. 

As you can see, refurbishing is well worth the investment. Your employees, production line, and wallet will thank your foresight.
