Converting Surplus Factory Automation Spares into Cash

From: / NIE
Published: Fri May 14 2010 has announced the launch of its recycling service for surplus industrial automation equipment. With over 30 years experience in repairing and selling new, refurbished and obsolete factory automation equipment, Direct-Industrial, is now offering manufacturers the opportunity to turn their surplus PLCs, Drives, Operator Panels and Controllers into cash.

Investing in automation spare parts is one of the vital investments for most manufacturers. Nevertheless many manufacturers do not keep track of their spare parts requirement leading to them carrying obsolete stock for machinery which is no longer used in the production process.

Managing obsolete stock can become a costly affair when you consider the storage cost, stock taking cost and the time involved. We haven’t even mentioned depreciation. Hiring logistics consultants who offer advice on getting the stockroom in order is not always financially viable for manufacturers in the present climate. Unfortunately there are more costs once surplus automation stock has been identified. Strict laws on the disposal of waste electrical products means that many manufacturers have to pay for this equipment to be removed from site and recycled.

Disposing of surplus automation equipment can be a significant cost for large manufacturers and particularly galling when you consider the huge financial outlay required to purchase these spare parts. Direct-Industrial’s innovative recycle scheme enables manufacturers to reclaim the residual value for these automation spares and avoid the cost associated with recycling through traditional channels.

Direct Industrial will offer to buy automation parts in any condition (new or used) from any manufacturer including Allen Bradley, Siemens and Mitsubishi. This means that customers can send their surplus PLCs, drives, operator panels and controls safe in the knowledge that they will be offered competitive prices and receive swift payment or their goods will be returned to them for free. There is no need for customers to clean or sort items before contact Customers can even trade in old spares for new equipment such as Siemens SIMATIC S7
