Legacy Products -what to do with them?

Motor Technology has over 30 years of involvement in the servo, motion control and automation industry. As time has moved on so have we, but we haven’t forgotten our past and our valued customers that have called on our know-how and expertise over the years.

Part of our team specialises in providing spares, repairs and sourcing services for customers with older equipment that needs to be kept running. We also list available products in our euroServo shop on eBAY for immediate purchase.

Products like the Seidel 60WKS, 65WKS and Digifas servo drives, the Kollmorgen Servostar 600 drives, Lenord+Bauer’s GEL 7000 & 8000 series controllers, Zebotronics stepper motors & drives, Prima drives and Lafert motors are still supported by our service and technical teams.

For further details on these and other products, please take a look at the product status table in conjunction with the attached listings (PDF).

Product Status

Current – Product still manufactured and fully supported
Legacy – Product still manufactured and supported, but for spares only, consider upgrade
Obsolete – Product no longer manufactured, limited stock and support, suggest planning towards replacement
Superseeded – Product has been replaced with an updated version (see description)
Terminated – Product not available, limited support, look for alternative solution (see description)

Although we tend to think of new technology as progress there is plenty of old automation equipment that is still providing reliable service and doesn’t need upgrading. The problems tends to unfold when maintenance is required on older components that may no longer be supported by the original manufacturer.

Motor Technology’s spares and repairs department specialise in supporting customers, regardless of the age of the equipment and a wide range of servo drives, servo motors, gearboxes and other motion control components are held on stock, even equipment that is no longer in production. Why not take a look at our eBay shop.

If we don’t have what a customer needs in stock the chances are we know where to get it, and we can offer anything from a new like-for-like replacement, a newly manufactured compatible or a refurbished unit.

Some customers want to upgrade, but only to newer more available equipment. We can help here too. Often there is no need to make a costly upgrade to the very latest technology, when a small step-up to the next model will do a perfect job for the application.

This can save customers a fortune when an upgrade to the latest technology can often require a complete system upgrade. We are able to supply new and refurbished components, provide service and repair, and design complete new systems if required.
