Refurbishment services, when done right, can effectively extend the life of equipment and components. The process requires knowledge of the system, parts and materials, and an understanding of the expected lifetimes of each component. IND has extensive experience with refurbishment of a broad array of critical manufacturing equipment components and assemblies.
One of the key aspects of refurbishment is to ensure that component lifetimes are synchronized to limit overall maintenance and equipment downtime. IND has in-depth knowledge about extending product lifetime through carefully selected cleaning process, material selections, and design improvements. From diagnostics to reassembly and packaging in our certified clean room, IND will ensure your robot, machine, assembly, or component gets the highest quality care and service while saving significant time and money versus a complete replacement.
We refurbish many different types of parts and equipment including:
Extensive testing is conducted on every refurbishment including, for example, testing of motors and encoders, functional test and leak check of drive spindles, ferro-fluidic seal and mechanical seals, operation of all sensors, and functional testing of the complete assembly with full range of motion. In addition we can perform calibrations for various types of controllers, sensors, and valves.
The IND team can help you determine what the best options are for your system needs; it may be refurbishment, replacement, or re-design, or a combination of these depending on the equipment and your goals. We can give you guidance on the impact of the available options so that you can make the optimum choice for enhancing your operations.
