On Site Repair
We offer fast, reliable on-site repair services at your facility. This enables you to minimise downtime by getting your out-of-service equipment up and running as quickly as possible.
A fully qualified Quantum service engineer will attend site with a fully equipped service vehicle containing all of the right tools and original spare parts. The service engineer will assess the situation and repair the equipment on site. If required, your equipment may be brought to one of our service centres for workshop repair.
Conducting on site repairs at your facility provides a timely, cost-effective way to resolve problems associated with unexpected failures.
Our Repair Facility
The main advantage of our new test facility at Quantum’s Head Office in Prudhoe, Northumberland is that we are now able to test VSD’s under loads of up to 400A. This can be achieved by driving two 110kW motors coupled together, the first is a driven motor and the second acts as a generator.
This now means that high currents can be passed through the drive instead of the drives being ran without a motor or ran with an unloaded motor.
Fitting a regen drive to this means that we can power the full load test facility by drawing only the losses from the grid, resulting in a very green, energy efficient testing process.
Splitting the test facility into two sections with a retractable partition now allows us to test double the amount of VSD’s and Control Panel’s at the same time, helping us to adhere to our drive repair SLA’s.
We also have the added benefit of a 415v to 690v transformer in order to test our bigger 690v Control Panel’s, as well as a TV fitted to the back of the test bay allowing our engineers to connect laptops in order to visually display and analyse results and graphs from the equipment tested.
What our Customers Say
Great service from Billy, Brandon and Liam. They worked quickly and efficiently into the early hours to get our 800KW hire drive up and running. They also removed our damaged drives and took them away for repair. Got our plant producing saving us massive costs due to lost production. The engineers worked safely and calmly during a highly pressured period. Great work done by your guys!
I spoke with Amy Finn who dealt with the break down support. She was superb. Understood my requirements and kept me updated throughout the process. The engineer resolved the problem promptly, also spares were made available if the problem was bigger than expected to mitigate any risk of having to wait for parts.
