The equipment used in the plastic industry can be complex and highly specialised. The manufacturers of these machines are based overseas and not all of them are represented in Australia.
Most of the failures associated with this type of equipment are due to failures of the Printed Circuit Boards (PCB) that control the equipment.
These events can occur at any time since electronic equipment failures are random and can cause significant downtime.
When the OEM does not provide support for the equipment, repair and refurbishment of the PCB and other electronic circuits, power supplies, etc, is a feasible alternative.
Rom-Control's, formerly known as Eltiv Australia Electronic Engineering, PCB repair and refurbishing services will extend the useful life of the equipment by pro-actively replacing the components that are likely to fail in the future due to age, vibrations, moisture.
PCB repair and refurbishment can be done for all makes and brands used in the plastic industry including processes like injection molding, extruders, blow molding, rotary moulding
Rom-Control will repair PCBs for brands like Krauss Maffei, Arburg, Engel, Milacron, Sandretto, Wellex, B&W, Fischer, Jomar, Techne, Ferry, Gefran and many more.
PCB repair and refurbishment can also be performed for proportional valves or temperature controllers, and others.
