You’ve had the same electric material lift for years now, and you can see the that the life is slowly draining out of it. Machine tools are counted on for their durability, meaning routine maintenance and repairs are critical to the health of the machine and your company as a whole. It is time to make the age-old decision, do you repair the lift you have or is it time to invest in a new one? When it comes to machine tool repair, the cost of rebuilding tools may be much worth the investment.
Buying an electric material lift is a huge investment, and to just throw out your old one is like pouring money down the drain. Instead, invest once again and get your lift repaired by an authorized technician. You will most likely save money compared to if you bought a new one, and you won’t be wasting old money. The state of your lift is no concern at all when repairing it, the parts can be used to rebuild the lift entirely or it can simply have a little maintenance done, depending on the state of the lift.
Repairing a lift instead of replacing it can also be beneficial because of the familiarity you and your company has built with the piece of equipment. The staff has been trained to work with this particular lift, and purchasing a new lift will require re-training everyone. By refurbishing your current lift you can ensure that everyone who needs to work it will already know what they are doing, lowering safety concerns because of their experience.
Lifts can often be restored to a like-new state, and no one would ever know that it was once worn down. By having the electrical material lift tested and certified at the shop after the repair is done, you can be assured that the machine shop repair job is top-notch. There is no reason not to consider the repair of an old lift so you don’t lose your investment and keep your company running as smoothly as possible by not having to retrain employees.
