What’s the new normal for servo gearbox availability in uncertain times ?
Will business ever be the same again? Will there be a return to normal or a shift to a new normal, whatever that might be?
These are questions that business people and politicians are talking about all the time.
It’s clear that crashing out of the EU without a Brexit Trade Deal would have ended in disaster for industry, while the COVID 19 situation continues to ebb and flow, although vaccines are emerging and showing very positive signs of working.
So, coronavirus and Brexit deal uncertainty has been quite a combination, making it difficult for many manufacturers and machine builders to plan and be confident that trading will continue as unhindered as possible in the current circumstances.
But, Apex Dynamics has the answer for the automation industry needing that sense of normality and confidence.
It is the only large-scale manufacturer of servo gearboxes that is Brexit-proof, being the only volume manufacturer based outside of Europe.
What’s more, the manufacturing process for Apex Dynamics in Taiwan has not been affected by the coronavirus pandemic due to the automated manufacturing procedures used and the outstanding success of the Taiwanese nation in overcoming the CV19 pandemic there.
In fact, not a single case of Covid has occurred there in the last 240 days so confidence in the workforce is high and production is carrying on as normal.
There have not been any drop-offs in delivery experienced by our customers worldwide, and Apex Dynamics is largely carrying on as it did before the pandemic gripped the world economy.
That’s some achievement for a major manufacturer, and it is certainly not the case for every servo gearbox manufacturer.
So, with 100,000 gearboxes manufactured for stock and ready for final configuration, Apex Dynamics is in a commanding position to deliver in two to three weeks on all of its range of planetary and spiral bevel gearboxes. Competitor delivery times are typically 8 to 16 weeks at present
Along with a unique five-year warranty on all products, this makes Apex Dynamics a very reliable and trusted partner for machine builder’s needs.
New products launched recently include a fully stainless – steel gearbox range and an AGV drive gearbox range specifically for robotic – type applications. For further information and technical specifications about these innovative solutions please visit our website www.apexdynauk.com
Today it’s easy to see why economic confidence has been knocked. Brexit has always cast a shadow of uncertainty, and even more so with details not being finalised and then the added issues of the coronavirus pandemic.
However, with all of this in mind, Apex Dynamics is as close to manufacturing normality as in previous years and we are looking forward to the future with confidence.
We have a full range of planetary and other servo gearboxes with drop-in replacements for most competitor’s models and the widest range of gearbox ratios from any major supplier.
This makes it easy for customers to substitute models they may be currently using without design changes.
It would be prudent for UK machine manufacturers currently sourcing servo gearboxes from Europe to be talking to us now to find out how we can protect their supply chain arrangements for these key components.
