The Importance of Using OEM Parts In Your Crushers, Feeders and Material Handling Equipment
The primary goal of maintaining your heavy industrial equipment is to mitigate the consequences of failure of equipment. Replacing parts that show wear helps to preserve and restore equipment reliability and prevent equipment failure.
TerraSource Global’s three brands of equipment (Gundlach Crushers, Jeffrey Rader and Pennsylvania Crusher) are in use in some of the most demanding applications across the coal, biomass, power generation, pulp & paper, cement, potash, recycling and many additional industries.
With all of the effort to maintain up-time, equipment reliability and productivity, the reward is not worth the risk of gambling with anything other than OEM parts. Buying OEM parts that were manufactured specifically for your equipment is the only way to guarantee that you're buying the best quality part from a trustworthy source.
There are times when the excessive wear of a part is indicative of an underlying issue. Perhaps it's the material or electrical requirements - only the OEM parts suppliers could analyze this for you to determine the true nature of the issue and prescribe the best solution.
Authentic OEM parts are from undisputed origin; they're genuine and manufactured from specific high-grade materials to meet specific requirements of operation for specific equipment.
If cost savings is the number one reason why non-OEM parts are purchased, consider this. A customer of ours has found that the parts they had purchased from non-OEM suppliers had dimensional variations that compromised fit, as well as material variations that compromised performance.
When problems arose from those variations that affected their production levels, the savings they expected to see by purchasing non-OEM parts in fact cost them a lot more in the long run.
