Magnetic chucks are used in many industrial applications, such as milling machines, drilling and surface grinding. Rotating chucks are popular for lathe and indexing. Magnetic chucks are designed to hold a component in a fixed location to perform a task. CMT provides complete service to include manufacturing new internal coils, potting in epoxy and assembly.
CMT has the resources to redesign process machines and motors and can also help identify the root cause of failures and make repairs. This line shaft was modified with machine indicators for alignment and split couplings.
Did you know that all electric motors are supplied with a nameplate that provides voltage information? Motors are designed and efficiency rated at the balanced nameplate voltage. Deviating voltage up or down changes torque and temperature. All deviations impact motor life. CMT can identify and provide solutions to keep your motor running.
New technology helps predict machinery conditions with high accuracy. Laser alignment, vibration analysis, Babbitt bearing and bearing journal inspections, FARO studies and motor insulation integrity are just a few of the preventative maintenance options CMT provides to mitigate repairs and save companies money.
— Voltage imbalance.: A 3.5% imbalance will drive a 25% temperature increase — Low and high voltage — Single phase of a three-phase machine — Lightning, surges and switching spikes — Ungrounded power systems — Loose electrical connections — Inverter settings — Restricted ventilation — Using the wrong lubricant and the wrong amount — Overload […]
Pump problems? CMT has the capabilities to remanufacture all pump designs. There are two basic designs for a submersible pump, which are designed for water. Integral motor driven where the motor and pump are under water. External motor driven where the pump is under water. If the pump screen becomes clogged, the motor draws less […]
Is your large induction machine down? CMT remanufactures and repairs large induction machines to original specifications. Large induction machines and motors are found in power generation, mills, extrusion, chemical, foundries, rubber, forestry, municipalities and the military. All mechanical, electrical and component parts are inspected. Rewinding is also available. Prevent future disruptions with CMT’s preventative maintenance […]
Downtime spells trouble for food and dairy industries. Electric motors are used in food and dairy industries. Electric motors drive air moving equipment, gear reducers, conveyors, freezers, mixers, compressors, dryers, chillers, evaporators and other equipment. Motor, gearbox and pump outages can cause process line disruption. CMT industrial services include: ::Electric motor repair ::Industrial machining ::Welding […]
The steel processing industry requires many electrical and mechanical apparatuses all working together. If one breaks down, the entire line can go down. Electric motors drive rolling mills, slitter lines, piercing mills, stamping machinery, runout tables, among other equipment, are all used in the steel making process. CMT industrial services for the steel industry include: […]
Sometimes motors in service don’t replicate controlled lab conditions. Load types may be mismatched or there might be operating efficiencies like worm gearing, wear friction or bad power, which could lead to an outage. CMT can test your motors to make sure they are up and running and repair as needed.
