Success where others failed !

(06/02/2006)
Northern Drives & Control’s Manchester Service Centre received a call at 07:30 on Tuesday 11 January 2006 from a first time customer manufacturing household cleaning products with a faulty Allen Bradley Servo Drive

Production was standing as a result of this failure and time was of the essence. A replacement unit was on an extended delivery from abroad. Under NDC’s Rapid Repair Service the faulty equipment was collected immediately. The unit, Part no: 1394-SJT10-C-R is generally accepted as one of the most complicated Servo Drives to repair, and attempts have been made to repair these units by 3rd party companies with little success. NDC’s Repairs Register came to the rescue, with these units having been ‘reverse engineered’ by NDC in the past, technical information and drawings were available. The fault was diagnosed to ‘drive stage’ failures, and whilst repairs were being performed replacement components were ordered and obtained over night. The drive was returned the following day after full repair and testing at less than a 3rd of the OEM’s replacement price.
