This Thanksgiving, we are thankful for our associates and our customers. Wishing you health and happiness as we start the holiday season. Please remember to shop small this Saturday. Small business is the engine that drives our economy. Support them.
Vertical motors are used in pumps, gearboxes, grinders and mills, among other industrial equipment. Vertical motors have many design specific attributes based on down thrust requirements. Many vertical motors have multiple thrust bearing sets on either the top or bottom housing and larger designs have Babbitt tilt pad and guide bearings for heavy load conditions. […]

Every industrial process has some sort of rotation. Operational problems develop when a vibration is present. That can lead to failures. Over time, operating conditions change. For example, motors, shafts, wheels and other industrial equipment can accumulate debris, couplings wear and bearing housings become loose. CMT can do a vibrational analysis to determine the root […]
Friday, October 7 is Manufacturing Day. Here at CMT, we celebrate all kinds of manufacturing. It’s good to roll up your sleeves and use your hands and your brain. At CMT, we hire machinists and mechanics. Going to a career and technical center for high school or trade school is a great way to get […]
Electric motor winding failures can develop from several reasons, such as over greasing, a voltage surge, poor power, contamination or insulation problems. A voltage surge caused so much force that it ripped the winding apart creating shorts and grounds in a 2500 horsepower motor. CMT can determine if it’s a mechanical or electrical failure in […]
Pictured is a magnetic drum that has been restructured and waits for an internal bore process to ensure a proper rotational air gap. CMT offers repairs at your facility or ours.
Join CMT on Sunday, September 18, 2022, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Silly Science Sunday. The streets downtown will be closed for all kinds of fun, kid-approved STEM activities.
Important surfaces become worn and affect quality. This is a 10-foot process table. We are working on welding and machining the entire length and installing a new keyway. CMT offers welding and repairs at your facility or at ours.
We welded and machined a 12” long shaft and bearing section on this large rotor used in shredding cars. CMT offers welding and machine processes in our shop or at your facility using portable machinery for equipment that cannot be removed.
