Industrial electric motors are used in a wide variety of applications. If industry needs to move something, there is often an electric motor as the driving force. Electric motors come in all shapes and sizes. Many are designed to be rewound in order to extend the life of the equipment and also the process for which the motor was designed. CMT’s core business is the rewinding and repair of electric motors ranging from small fractional sizes up to several thousand horsepower. The basic rewind procedure is essentially the same for all. A failed stator or armature is carefully burned out, stripped and undergoes a core iron inspection. Technicians then manufacture the new copper coils that are skillfully installed by hand, then tested for proper operation. The finished winding is treated in a varnish or epoxy bath to bond and protect the job. Motors are then re-assembled with the new rewound components and returned to service.
