Test systems service performance center
Your partner for custom service concepts
Whether development or series production, the availability of a test stand and the accuracy of its measurement results are of the highest importance. Therefore regular maintenance and adaptation to changing test requirements are a necessity even on reliable test systems.
RENK offers a wide range of service levels, perfectly matching the requirements of each individual test system. Decades of experience in servicing test systems makes RENK a perfect partner for your system maintenance.
Customers can select from individual service-levels based on our Service Support Contract SSC (Technical Support, Inspection and Maintenance).
Our basic endeavor is to give test bench operators and customer's own maintenance personnel the possibility to work fully autonomously with the test bench supplied by us.
Nevertheless, with such complex systems, a short-term assistance from our specialist personnel can sometimes help. For example, in the evaluation of system conditions, the creation of a new complicated test program or the training of a new staff member.
For this we can offer three possibilities:
Many issues can already be solved over the phone, in a chat or in an online meeting. For this purpose, we assign a service employee to our customers who will assist them with any questions they may have. If the support of a specialist department is also required, this service employee takes over the complete coordination.
With the customer's approval, we can access almost all of the test stands we supply worldwide from our headquarters in Augsburg. This means that we can immediately provide the test stand operator with optimum support in all matters relating to test stand control and automation. Software adaptations or the implementation of new prepared program sections can also be implemented remotely. With the help of state-of-the-art VR tools, even maintenance personnel can be instructed remotely on site.
And if our presence on site should be necessary, our service team, supported by the other RENK locations, is on duty for our customers worldwide.
