The choices when you buy industrial automation equipment are varied. Do you buy new? Overstock? Refurbished? Do you consider repairing your current part? Some of these decisions will be predicated by the age of your factory automation systems and the availability of parts. Older, legacy systems that are no longer supported by the OEM give limited options and may offer a challenge when sourcing quality replacement parts.
Here at AX Control, we stock a wide range of professionally refurbished, repaired, and reconditioned automation parts from companies like GE, Eurotherm, and Reliance Electric, just to name a few. Every piece of legacy equipment we sell has been inspected, cleaned, tested, serviced, and brought up to proper working order before we place it into our available online inventory. When you order from us, we carefully pack each product so it will reach you in the exact condition it was in when it leaves our facility and is guaranteed to arrive not DOA.
Overstock parts exceeded the original demand from the OEM. Many of these parts have never been used and remain in their factory packaging.
Refurbished parts, on the other hand, have been used. They make their way to us in a number of ways, but regardless of how they get here, they are fully checked over and optimized before we place them in our inventory. While these parts may show wear associated with age and use, they are in good working order and are fully reliable.
Reduce(your costs.) Reuse. Recycle.
Other advantages to buying refurbished parts from AX Control include:
- Reliability–Since we take such care in preparing our automation parts for sale, you can be confident in their durability. Additionally, all items are automatically warrantied upon purchase. You can learn more about the warranty terms for a specific product on that product’s individual page.
- Price—Refurbished legacy parts at AX Control are typically sold at a fraction of their new cost. This significant cost savings allows our customers to maintain an inventory of on-the-shelf spares without a lot of outlay of capital. These available spares, in turn, minimize downtime for your facility. No one wants expensive downtime.
- Equivalence–OEM parts can swap out like-for-like. This is an easy way to avoid compatibility issues that can occur with upgrades to your existing equipment. This also avoids the functionality and fit issues that sometimes occur with third-party parts. The cost in time is important here. Issues may not be obvious until a part has been delivered and fails to work on your system.
- Availability–The older your system, the greater your challenge is likely to be in finding a constant, reliable source for quality replacement parts. Without pre-planning, this can lead to sourcing issues that impact your facility’s ability to stay productive.
Here at AX Control, we constantly add inventory to the stock stored in our warehouse. We have over two football fields worth of space under-roof at our facility, which means we have the room to maintain significant on-hand inventory. And with our same-day and next-day shipping options, we can get those parts to you in a jiffy. When you buy from us you will be achieving the three Rs: you will be reducing your costs, you will be reusing like-for-like parts, and you will have the opportunity to recycle parts you’re ready to part with through our surplus purchase program.
