Three Things to Consider Before You Rewind that Broken Motor!

A motor failure is the last thing you need. Every second of downtime costs money and impacts output. ABB IE3 Motor

Before you call your local Motor Rewind Service Provider, we would like you to consider the following three things.
1. Has the motor been rewound before? The rewind process involves your motor being subjected to hot temperatures to burn out the old, faulty windings. This heating process can damage your motor’s Stator Core and consequently the level of Iron losses increase, which impacts your motor’s running temperature as well as making  it less efficient.

2. How old is your motor? Old motors do not need to adhere to the latest IE regulations put in place to ensure that energy -guzzling motors work as efficiently as possible. New motors are much more efficient and when considering the cost of buying new versus repairing, industry experts recommend replace rather than repair especially if the motor is older than 3 years, even up to motors of 45kW.

3. How quickly do you need your motor back up and running? A Motor rewind is no longer the only option if you need your motor back in operation as soon as possible.
