PCB Maintenance and Repair
Repair and maintenance is something businesses leave until there is a machine that ACTUALLY breaks down rather than trying to prevent this from happening. Everyone has their car serviced every year. Everyone has the oil changed. Not many people get their electronics serviced on their “Food machinery line” or “Money Sorting Machine” for example.
A car runs on both mechanical and electrical power. If the electrics were serviced regularly a car would be unlikely to break down.
At Greasley’s we offer preventative maintenance to ensure any type of machinery rarely breaks down saving time and money in a business. The running of these assets in a business are crucial
Do electrical devices fail?
Unfortunately, PCBs, just as all other electrical or mechanical devices do, fail. Fortunately, in most cases, boards can simply be replaced and operation resumed. This is possible due to the low cost of mass-produced solid-state components, which comprise virtually all electronic devices. There are, however, situations where simply replacing boards may not be the best course of action.
Guarantees and Warranties
Electronic devices and systems typically are sold with warranties or guarantees for a certain operational lifetime. Warranty terms and lengths vary; however, it is common for commercial electronics product warranties to be for periods of 90 days to one year. Circuit boards and electronics for critical systems devices, such as for aerospace electronics or medical devices, are subject to stricter design standards and guidelines. Periods for these devices can be for much longer. If failure does occur prematurely, the supplier or developer is responsible for either replacement or repair of the defective device or entire system or product.
At Greasley’s, the warranties we offer are for 3 months.
Many companies sell machinery to their customers. They can also suggest a maintenance plan and use Greasley’s as the maintenance company to keep the PCB’s in full working order. Refurbishment or replacement can then be ongoing and the end user is always happy.
