We carry out industrial automation parts repairs in collaboration with the Dutch service centre UNIS Group. It has been supplying industrial automation parts repairs for over 20 years. The centre has a large team of specialists, whose expertise is an invaluable asset to the company.
Every year the service centre repairs over 41,000 parts. It keeps stocks of over 35,000 different electronic components and 1 million parts. Repaired parts are tested using UNIS Group's own special testing systems as well as original systems built by OEM manufacturers.
UNIS Group is one of the best equipped industrial automation service centres in Europe. Its quality management system is certified to ISO9001:2000. All of its repairs are covered by a warranty of up to 24 months. FOXON s.r.o. is the exclusive authorised UNIS Group partner in the Czech and Slovak Republics.
We'll be happy to take you on an excursion to UNIS Group so that you can see for yourself how its experts repair parts.
Prices for repairs (except for servo motor repairs) are fixed and amount to about 40% of the original price for the device. After receiving your request for quotation, we'll email you our quotation for the repair. You can then either mail your part to us or one of our sales representatives will collect it from you. We usually carry out repairs within 4–6 weeks.
We also offer urgent repairs, which take 4–10days. If your part cannot be repaired, it will be mailed back to you free of charge (excluding servo motors).
A dirty part is first cleaned in a special way, which ensures that grease and grime are removed from it. When the part is dried, it's handed over to technical personnel. Apart from replacing faulty components, they also preventively replace time-critical components, which tend to be susceptible to breakdown. The part is then thoroughly tested, ideally to the maximum permitted load. When the part has been tested, we send it back to you. If requested, we can provide a report detailing the work and testing carried out during the repair.
With only 2 emails a month, we'll keep you updated.

The OPC UA communications standard has made OPC communications much easier to use. We're seeing an increasing number of devices with an integrated OPC UA server, which enable such systems as HMI SCADA, MES and ERP to collect data directly from them. Yet there are also disadvantages. Let's look at what OPC UA is all about and why you still can't do without a classic OPC server on your computer.
