Top Tips to consider repairs!
We were having a conversation with the team at Greasley Electronics about how we could give Top Tips to consider repairs! So many businesses look to replace equipment rather than repair it as they don’t think it can be and are not aware of Electronic repair agents like Greasley Electronics.
So, some top tips to share with you are as follows:
Repairing industrial electronic equipment is often more cost-effective than replacing it with new equipment. Repairs typically cost a fraction of the price of buying new equipment. Of course it does. We recently repaired a control panel for a ship, the ship being worth 8 million, and would not be able to go into the ocean and do it’s job without this being repaired. We saved a shipping company thousands of pounds and it was time critical too.
Reduction in down time
Repairing equipment can help reduce downtime, as it takes less time to repair an existing piece of equipment than to purchase and install a new one. This can be critical for industries where downtime can result in lost production, revenue, and customer dis-satisfaction. In the food industry for example, KP Foods and Walkers in Leicester are great examples of factories that would lose so much down time and money in production if their machinery is not in full use 100% of the time.
Repairing equipment is more environmentally sustainable than replacing it, as it reduces the amount of waste produced by the disposal of the old equipment and the manufacturing of new equipment. Companies have their own sustainability plans and often, a commitment to reduce their carbon footprint. Having electronic equipment checks annually is a great habit of reviewing sustainability plans. Greasley Electronics are happy to do this for businesses and John Rawlings, the Managing Director visits factories and manufacturing plants often to see what we can do to help.
Familiarity with equipment
Repairing equipment that is already in use allows technicians to become familiar with the equipment and identify any potential issues or areas for improvement. This can result in better performance and longevity of the equipment.
Repairing equipment allows for the preservation of any customisations or integrations that have been made to the equipment, which may not be possible with a new piece of equipment.
In essence, repairing industrial electronic equipment can be a cost-effective, efficient, sustainable, and compatible alternative to replacing it. In turn, this helps keep your business running smoothly with minimal downtime. Often, machinery parts cannot be replaced easily including circuit boards and they are not made in the same way as they used to be so new ones do not fit old equipment. So, after a few years businesses are encouraged to replace them without even a consideration that they could be repaired and then be working as good as new. Luckily Greasley Electronics can repair almost anything. If we can’t we are honest and tell them we can’t, but give us a go first!
