Tips for buying parts for power tools

Whether you work in the printing industry, textiles, manufacturing, mining or shipping, or any kind of industry, you are likely to have to rely on power tools from time to time. Quality power tools help businesses meet the highest standards of precision, speed and durability, meaning companies can achieve great working results.

But what happens when a power tool you rely on becomes faulty and fails to operate at its best?

A power tool includes any type of device that uses an alternate power source, such as hydraulic, air and electric. The most common types of power tools use electric motors.

As with most equipment, the parts used in power tools vary enormously and could include anything from Sirem geared motors to Wrapflex couplings and blades to nuts and bolts.

If you need to replace a part for your power tool the first thing you will need to do is to determine which part and what model of part the tool requires.

Specialist parts

If the tool requires a specialist part such as a Lenze variable speed pulley or a Berges variable speed belt, contacting a distributor of specialist industrial parts will enable you to locate and fit the part quickly and efficiently.

Take a look at the specialist parts we have in stock. Or, if you cannot see the part you require listed, get in contact with us and we will be able to tell you whether we will be able to locate the part from the industrial component manufacturer.

Consult the owner’s manual

Most power tools come with an owner’s manual. Sometimes the manual will include a list of parts that the tool is made up of. Having a look at the manual can make searching for a specific component much easier.

Consider buying new parts or used parts

Once you know the specific part required and its make and model you should determine whether you need to buy a new part or whether an old part would suffice.

It is important to remember when considering buying used parts for industrial motors and power tools that most industry requires heavy use of machinery, meaning it is often better to buy new parts.

That said, if equipment is well looked after and maintained, the parts can remain in good working order for a long time. Subsequently it is possible to purchase a used part for a power tool or other industrial equipment that is in good working order and will get the device back on track.
