    Default Recommendations for servo drive repair

    Yasnac I80 control xaxis servo drive is bad, contacted yaskawa and have attempted to get a rma to send in going on 3 days with no luck. Figure its time to look else where. Any recommendations?

    I know a couple good places to send Fanuc components, the only place I had success with Yasnac ones is out of business. The couple times I dealt directly with Yasnac I had good results. The last time they walked me through replacing an obsolete spindle inverter with a new one. Strange they dropped the ball with you, it has been a couple years since I used them. Maybe the Covid crap has effected them.

    Yea not to impressed so far; i was trying to explain to the tech guy how it had burned up a diode on the u line of the power control module 3 times and he just said do not try to troubleshoot this, its far too complex. So then I tried to talk to him(tech support,) parts and the repair department about the motion card in said servo, I have found a used servo drive with 4month warranty with same chassis number (CACR-IR10SB) but the motion card on front is df8xxxxx rev B 03 instead of rev B 04 on my machine. None of them had a clue as to what the significance if the last two numbers signify and when they search there inventory they simply look by that chassis model. They had one rebuilt ready to go for 2800$ish or I could buy a brand new replacement(drop in retrofit) for 3147$

    I would just wait a little while, Yasnacs don't have the popularity of Fanuc, someone should lead you in the right direction. I can give one word of advice, don't send it to Radwell. They claim to work on anything under the sun they screwed me over twice, by testing two Fanuc components and saying they were good, when they were bad.

    +1 for these people. They've done a few for us over the years never a problem.

    +1 for Precision Zone / Alfa-inc. Used them to repair an ancient Yasakawa drive that was quoted at $20k to replace. $650 for the repair and another $400 to turn it around in a day.

    You might talk to someone at Galco. I had them do a Yaskawa drive for me some years back as I recall,

    That price is amazing, a lot of places base their repair quotes off of replacement cost, regardless of what it takes to fix.
