Should I Repair or Replace My Hot Melt Parts?

When you have a part that has failed on your adhesive melter, a quick resolution is critical to minimizing downtime. Most often, there are two options: replacement or repair.
When you replace the part, you can sometimes lose value by discarding valuable components. To make the most of your hot melt equipment investment, consider having Keystone Industries® repair or rebuild the non-functioning part where you can extend the life of your investment.

Benefits of Repairing/Rebuilding Your Hot Melt Equipment

While there are advantages to choosing either option, rebuilding has its own benefits. For example, this is often the more cost-effective option — the cost of repairing/rebuilding what failed on the equipment is often much lower than buying an entirely new part. With the cost savings, you can reinvest in spares, set it aside for equipment that fails the most often or save it for future needs.
If a new replacement for your existing equipment is no longer manufactured or in short supply, you could also experience less downtime by opting for repair. With lower costs and reduced wait time, why wouldn’t you consider hot melt equipment repair instead of purchasing new if it is an option?
Keystone Industries® also offers an exchange program for select parts if removing your existing equipment would cause downtime. To keep your operations going, we will send you rebuilt equipment in exchange for your non-functioning equipment.
