Regeneration of Electronic Spare Parts is the first step towards Sustainability

Sustainability is a challenge for Assistec's future

Nowadays, there is a lot of discussion about environmental and social sustainability, raising various questions about how we can achieve the goals laid out in the Agenda 2030, which was drawn up and signed by the United Nations. In a global context where it is necessary to bring about change, we at Assistec are increasingly recognising the importance of embracing an innovative mindset based on the concepts of Sustainability and Circular Economy.

We are aware of the change that is coming and understand that the road ahead is very long. It demands careful decision-making, considering the needs of all components that comprise our reality in order to avoid falling into the trap of greenwashing.

Starting with the concept of Circular Economy, defined by the European Union itself as “a model of production and consumption, which involves sharing, leasing, reusing, repairing, refurbishing and recycling existing materials and products as long as possible. In this way, the life cycle of products is extended, contributing to reducing waste to a minimum”, we at Assistec recover items from our product range, recondition them and make them available to be resold through our online shop or installed by our technicians.

Regeneration of Fanuc and Mitsubishi Drives, Motors, Boards and Power supplies

There is a department within our organisation that is fundamental and the beating heart of our company: the Electronic Repair Workshop. The main task of this department is to integrate external support with a service that enables customers to minimise downtime and control costs effectively. This is made possible by using regenerated electronic spare parts, backed by warranties.

The range of Fanuc and Mitsubishi is very wide, and includes axis and spindle drives, numeric controls, power supplies, peripheral boards, graphic boards, operating panels, motors, robot drives, industrial computers, hydraulic control units, cooling units and everything else that is part of the CNC world.

In addition to repairs, the workshop's task is to regenerate products, , making them readily accessible in our stock and available for direct purchase from our Shop Online.

The majority of regenerated items are Fanuc and Mitsubishi Axes, Robots and Spindle Drives.

How does the regeneration process work?

When drives arrive at our company from external sources, they often carry residues of oil, dust, dirt and oxidation, which can impact their reliability and proper functioning. Consequently, the regeneration process begins with a thorough washing and drying of the individual components.

This is followed by repairing any damaged parts and conducting a complete overhaul, which involves replacing all components subject to deterioration over time. The critical and final step entails subjecting the drive/motor to a load test.

This step serves two important purposes: to identify any defects that may not have been apparent during the overhaul phase and to provide customers with a warranty of up to 24 months. In addition to our warranty stamp affixed to the regenerated article, an identification barcode is also included, which captures the entire "history" of the drive/motor.The entire regeneration process requires three working days and ensures that a vast selection of spare parts are readily available in our warehouse.

For further information on the regeneration of our products, please don't hesitate to contact us or call us at+39 0522 989436. Our team of experts will be able to provide you with all the information you need.

  • What is the CNC lathe and how does it work?

    The computer numerical control (CNC) lathe is one of the most advanced and precise tools in the field of machining. Its ability to perform complex machining operations with high precision and repeatability has, after all, revolutionised the manufacturing industry, significantly optimising production processes in many sectors. In the following lines, we will explore in detail how the CNC lathe works, analysing its main components, the programming process and practical applications.

    We will also look at the interactions between hardware and software, the types of tools used and how machining parameters are controlled, to summarise the potential of a technology that has become strategically relevant today.
