In a word: Yes! Legacy Pacific Scientific servo equipment CAN typically be repaired! There’s a ton of really good Pacific Scientific servo equipment still out there in manufacturing plants being used every single day. You might also be wondering what ever happened to this excellent brand. Don’t worry! The story of the Pac Sci brand isn’t mysterious or unusual.
The Pac Sci equipment brand was purchased by Kollmorgen several years ago and until 2011 kept the Pacific Scientific branding and developed a few new products under the Pac Sci name. But, when the Danaher Corporation divested itself from the Pacific Scientific Aerospace business (a separate business from the Kollmorgen business) it included the sale of the Pacific Scientific brand name and logo. This forced Kollmorgen to remove all the Pacific Scientific branding and replace it with Kollmorgen branding. Simple, just business as usual.
The good news is that your legacy Pacific Scientific equipment is usually repairable. And, also usually well worth repairing. Here’s a handy chart with a few part numbers of Pacific Scientific equipment that we frequently see in our shop for repairs with reference pricing based on previous repairs.
