Reducing the risk of extended outages and improving your equipment uptime
Despite your best efforts to maintain electrical drives, automation systems and rotating machines, unforeseen outages are inevitable. Spares, and more specifically spares availability is therefore a critical enabler to maintain your equipment. Defining the optimal investment in spare parts aligned to your operational needs is key. Having spare parts available on site compatible with your equipment will save downtime from a few days up to several weeks or months.

Why working with your OEM on your spare parts strategy?
OEM parts are designed to the same high standards as in the initial delivered equipment. Only with OEM parts you can be sure of compliance with the required international standards including safety as well as the compatibility with your customized operational system. Typically, after-market or replacement parts in contrast have a reduced life cycle, resulting in frequent replacements and unplanned downtime.
