The cost of repairing a circuit board is about 10% of buying a new one, so why are we throwing them away so easily?

Learn about the right tools and training for the job

Why do so many circuit cards, and sometimes entire pieces of equipment, continue to be thrown away?

A technician or engineer armed with the right diagnostic tools and training can diagnose the issue, replace the broken down and generally inexpensive components and save other components in the device from being dumped along with the circuit board.

“Repair generates 85% fewer emissions compared to sourcing a new electronic circuit board”.

Local Net-Zero Repair

Investments in training and the right diagnostic technologies can turn local teams into repair heroes, capable of testing, maintaining, and repairing electronics in-house. Costs can be reduced by up to 90% when executed close to the point of use, compared to sourcing replacement parts from the original equipment manufacturer (OEM).


Return on Investment

Local repair setups require a modest investment in equipment, training, and infrastructure. Most businesses that are part of the ‘Repair, don’t waste’ movement recover the investment in 6 to 12 months, sometimes much sooner and with the first few repairs and the mitigation of obsolescence.


Sustainable Impact

Repair Vs Buy New reduces emissions by 85%. The U.N estimates that the world will produce 57 million tonnes of E-waste this year. This waste is valued at 55 billion dollars in materials only. In-house repair and e-waste reduction add huge value to businesses committed to energy transition and net-zero policies.
