Sprint Electric Fast Delivery
December 2021
Sprint Electric News


Have you heard about our DC Drive emergency delivery service? If an emergency hits your critical application you can rely on Sprint Electric to deliver a replacement fast.

When a critical machine went down in an industrial mixer in a UK tyre rubber factory recently we ensured our distributor Transdrive Engineering Services came to the rescue in just 19.5 hours.


Contrast this with other leading manufacturers who are quoting an eye watering 18+ week delivery time on standard inverters! (Normally we quote Ex-stock for our standard drives and 2-3 days for our larger drives 275kW+.)


Mission critical applications such as in the paper, plastics and steel industries and also in time sensitive processes such as newspaper printing are extremely costly if the line goes down. These work horse production lines are not able to simply stop for a while. A sudden ‘stop’ in a line is incredibly disruptive to output, and thus profits.

If there is an emergency or breakdown of the production line, having a replacement part available on site without delay is invaluable to keep the line moving.

We understand that in case of a breakdown it is vital that machines are repaired and up and running as quickly as possible to avoid the situation escalating to a catastrophe and/or even incurring consequential losses for the manufacturer.


Recently an urgent requirement came in for a 750Amp 4Q DC Drive at 15:30 on day one and we were tasked with finding a Formula 1 solution in under 24 hours!


We ensured a PLX315TE digital DC drive was built, tested, expedited through final assembly and packed ready for a same day courier to collect by 11am the very next day and just 19.5 hours after the emergency call had come in. We were delighted to receive the below feedback:

“We’ve relied on Sprint Electric products and service for 30 + years. Thanks to the team once again for the fast delivery last week when our customer had a machine down, it truly saved the day”.
