Don’t Wait Until You NEED A Retrofit from Feed Lease

Your servo roll feed is getting older.

If it’s really old, it might even be regarded as an elder. And like a wise old elder, you give it the respect it deserves for continuing to carry on. You live by the motto - if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. 
But here’s the problem with that thinking.

As the machinery ages, your proprietary servo feed controls become progressively more out of date. And if you’ve done your research, you’ve discovered that the replacement parts are less and less available. Or even worse, they may be obsolete. When you inquire about needing these parts, people are laughing at you. (If they’re kind, they’re doing it behind your back.)

Of course, the parts and service folks at Feed Lease would never laugh at you.

But you’ve got to face it. Because being in denial about your trusty old machine can cost you big. Even if the feed is still going strong, the other components of the system are phasing out. And when it finally decides that enough is enough, it’s gonna stop doing its job. And that means you’re gonna stop doing yours.

An idle press is money lost. A whole lot of money.

So if you’ve got one of these trusty old servo feed lines, be grateful it’s been serving you so well. Then do yourself a HUGE favor and take advantage of the Feed Lease in-plant equipment inspection. We’ll give it the well needed once-over to determine whether it’s time for a retrofit BEFORE the machine tells you by shutting down your factory. It’s preventative maintenance at its best.

The inspection can be scheduled at a time when a Feed Lease technician may already be planning to be your plant or factory. And because their control panels are not proprietary, they can perform the inspection on any servo feed machine, not just one from Feed Lease.

In fact, they recently did a retrofit on a competitor’s machine for one of their customers. The mechanics of the feed were good enough that the company didn’t want to do an entire new feed and Feed Lease happily stepped up to the job - retrofitting the competitor’s machine and saving their customer a significant amount of money.

The retrofit can be installed by you, if you’re comfortable doing it, or it can be done by Feed Lease.

The retrofit involves replacing the control panel, motor and drive, and the package includes operator control console/station, servo motor, remote jog control and belts and pulleys as required. It also comes with a 4-year warranty. Often times Feed Lease will perform the install because the customer may want some training. 

Whatever the case, Feed Lease wants to make it clean and simple to retrofit your existing machines whether it’s theirs or anybody else’s. So contact us or give us a call.

So if you have an older machine, NOW is the time.

Don’t wait until it’s too late.
