The service department of Hansen Industrial Transmissions nv (HIT) has introduced its ‘all-in-one spares kits’. These kits contain all of the spare parts and accessories that are necessary to replace critical components in a gear unit, such as a shaft or a gearwheel. In April 2015, this innovative concept from HIT services will also be showcased at the Maintenance Antwerp and Maintenance Next Rotterdam trade fairs.
When the requirement arises to replace a faulty shaft or a damaged gearwheel, users can attempt to order the original spare parts. However, in addition to the shaft or the gearwheel, it is usually the case that bearings, seals, etc., also need to be replaced.
Consequently, the user’s purchasing department will most likely have to contact several vendors to secure the various parts. From there, they have to request and compare quotes, prepare orders and start up the internal logistics to ensure that everything is delivered in good time. This is quite a cost-intensive and time-intensive procedure. In the context of HIT’s efforts at attaining sustainable partnerships, in which ‘thinking together with the customer’ is an underlying theme, it now offers ‘All-in-One spares kits’. These complete spare parts packages are available for all of the HIT product ranges.
There are several benefits for end users. In particular, they will experience better control of the total cost of ownership of their installed drives and the total package price for their spare part(s) will be cheaper thanks to the ‘all-in-one’ and ‘one-stop-shop’ principles. In addition, the customer is guaranteed the correct parts (OEM certified original parts). This in turn will ensure an extension to the life of the drives as well as making traceability straightforward. Finally, the spare parts packages are also covered by the one-year HIT guarantee terms.
