In such a competitive and sometimes lucrative market such as slurry pumps, it is common to see replicator companies offering spares and wears for original equipment manufacturers’ (OEM) equipment. They are usually marketed as ‘equivalent’ or ‘low price’ and can be very appealing to the equipment users. Beware of imitations, it is possible that what appears to be a good upfront saving can actually create more problems and costs over time.
Peak performance and peace of mind with OEM parts
Genuine OEM parts are rigorously designed, manufactured, tested and continuously improved to fit the equipment they are meant for. Not many replicators adhere to industry standards for quality management, such as ISO:9001. 3D scanning of parts deviates from design tolerances which can lead to fitment issues, premature failure or even incidents when handling replicated parts with certified OEM lifting tools.
