SPARE PARTS EXPRESS
Continuus-Properzi supplies spare parts for over 250 lines around the world, most with a tailor-made design still in progress, but started more than 35 years ago, in addition to all types of spare parts for equipment. In this specific service we offer items of frequent and non-specific use, easy to identify and deliverable within a short period of time (screws, gaskets, general pieces for hydraulic and pneumatic equipment, etc.). For these types of items, we suggest that our customers maintain a minimum quantity as determined by the items’ commercial availability on the market. Also items covering a large range of applications (flanges, connections, standard bearings, combustion and hydraulic lines, etc.).
This description characterizes those spare parts or components of the line designed and manufactured by the know-how supplier. Therefore, the procurement of these parts should be accomplished through the original equipment manufacturer. The shortage of these parts leads to considerable costs in the case of machinery downtime. Generally, these specially designed pieces (casting rings, casting nozzles, rolls, shafts, etc.) are manufactured according to proprietary drawings and therefore their production requires a considerable amount of time which implies long lead times. As a rule, we recommend to our customers to keep an internal maintenance stock.
