The Challenge

The client contacted EquipNet with an urgent need for an equipment part for a Kikusui tablet press. Their current press broke down during the middle of a production run, and they needed to replace the transformer as soon as possible or they would suffer a significant money loss. The OEM was quoting 4 to 6 weeks for the part to be available – a wait time that would cause the client to lose their whole batch of product. EquipNet had to act fast and efficiently to ensure the best results for their client.
