Dismiss almost every Viking costume you’ve ever laid eyes on. While these threatening Scandinavian tribes did wear all sorts of bizarre headgear when marching into battle, there’s no reason to believe it was decked with the intimidating horns popular culture loves so much. There are countless myths and fallacies which over time, have become commonly accepted as the truth. Misconceptions about reconditioned industrial automation parts are no exception. Here, Jonathan Wilkins, marketing director of industrial automation supplier EU Automation dispels common misconceptions about purchasing reconditioned industrial parts.
1. investimenti rischiosi
There’s something about the word ‘reconditioned’ that ignites visions of cheap, rejected products that are somehow inferior to new ones. Of course, most buyers want to save money when procuring industrial equipment, but they are also wary of wasting cash on a faulty or inferior item./p>
La realtà è che finché si utilizza un fornitore affidabile, le parti di automazione industriale ricondizionate che arrivano a domicilio saranno completamente funzionali e talvolta quasi nuove, risparmiando allo stesso tempo una notevole quantità di denaro.
2. Pronto ad andare in pensione
Produzione degli impianti si sta evolvendo rapidamente. Le nuove versioni aggiornate dei prodotti sono stati progettati, sviluppati, hanno lanciato e stanno sostituendo gli attuali modelli, dopo pochi anni. Come alcuni produttori si precipitano per ottenere gli ultimi modelli di attrezzature industriali, questo veloce ritmo del cambiamento sta rendendo quasi-nuovi dispositivi obsoleti.
La buona notizia per gli acquirenti di parti ricondizionate è che, nonostante la loro giovane età, i macchinari scartato, ma poco utilizzato di questi produttori è a disposizione del mercato ad un tasso fortemente scontato.
3. Merce danneggiata
Reconditioned parts can be confused with other kinds of used equipment. The term “repaired parts” describes components which have broken down and were restored back to a functional state. Usually, when a product is repaired, the remanufacturing process is disregarded and only the defective parts are investigated and replaced.
A differenza di questo processo di riparazione delle apparecchiature, il ricondizionamento ringiovanisce completamente il prodotto e riporta le apparecchiature alle specifiche originali di fabbrica.
Al contrario di una parte riparato, i clienti devono aspettarsi di ricevere i prodotti rigenerati nella stessa, perfette condizioni come nuovo pezzo di equipaggiamento.
4. Non riesce a soddisfare le normative
Operating in an environment in which energy efficiency legislation is extensive, manufacturers often assume that older, reconditioned parts won’t meet today’s energy standards and are therefore are impracticable for use. Let’s face it, industrial equipment doesn’t have the greatest reputation when it comes to energy efficiency. That being said, there are many reconditioned devices that meet current standards for energy efficiency.
Eco obsolete technology (EOT) is a term used for describing industrial equipment that, regardless of its age, continues to meet modern regulatory requirements. Seeking out EOT, manufacturers can ensure that energy related compliance won’t be compromised. Working with a knowledgeable industrial equipment supplier means companies can ensure they comply with regulations, while also saving on equipment maintenance and repair budgets and minimising downtime.
5. There’s no guarantee
Nobody wants to make a purchase without a safety net and it’s a common belief that reconditioned parts come with no guarantee. On the contrary, many suppliers of industrial equipment provide exceptional warranty policies on their reconditioned products. At EU Automation, for example, we provide the same 12-month warranty on reconditioned parts that we offer for brand new equipment. So, if the reconditioned part does happen to break down within the first year, we can provide a repair or replacement at no additional cost.
Of course, we can’t speak for all providers of industrial automation. Policies will vary from supplier to supplier, so it is vital that customers closely examine the returns policy, before making a purchase.
There may be a glimmer of truth in some common myths, but this does not necessarily mean all popular beliefs are accurate. Despite the iconic portrayal, Viking warriors did not sport horned headgear when trudging into battle. Archaeological finds have discovered helmets festooned with horns, but these were actually reserved for priests to wear during religious ceremonies – certainly not for war.
