The Value of OEM Genuine Parts vs. the Cost of Generic Parts

With customer demand on the rise, unplanned downtime of critical material handling systems can be crippling. Meanwhile, operators are under pressure to reduce operational costs throughout their distribution centers (DCs). In order to hit these cost reduction goals, it may be tempting to cut corners with non-original equipment manufacturer (OEM) parts. However, these parts are often risky and can cause costly system failures. 

In this white paper, we’ll compare the value of a preventative maintenance (PM) program featuring OEM-engineered replacement parts versus the true cost of cheaper “knockoffs”. We’ll also examine the potential impact of both scenarios on operational performance and safety. 

Learn the seven reasons why stocking and using OEM replacement parts make financial and operational sense.
