How to deal with an out-of-hours variable-speed drive breakdown

If your electric motor-powered process is controlled by a variable-speed drive, then a drive failure during normal business hours can be a real headache. For applications running round the clock where missing production targets simply isn’t an option, a drive breakdown in the middle of the night is a crisis.

So if your process shuts down overnight due to a drive failure, whether it’s food and beverage production, a printing press or textile manufacturing, it simply can’t wait until morning.

That’s where Gibbons Drive Hire comes in. We have a range of VSDs, a fleet of vehicles and a team of engineers on hand 24/7 to help get you up and running as soon as possible.

We’re well aware of how expensive unplanned downtime can be, so we do everything possible to save valuable minutes when responding to emergencies. For example, our hire drives come pre-programmed and ready-cabled so that they can be installed as soon as we arrive on site.

Our ABB-approved engineers will commission your hire drive and can return your original equipment to our workshop for repair. We’ll then return to site with your repaired drive and re-install it at a time that suits you.

So should the unthinkable happen and you experience a drive failure out of hours, call the Gibbons Drive Hire emergency line on 07970 676272 for immediate assistance. For more information on this invaluable service, visit our website.
