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.
Purchased a replacement motor and determined it can’t be installed? CMT can help. CMT can modify shafts and mounting, if the motor design, performance and enclosure is determined to be acceptable for the application. CMT can add accessories, such as encoders, brakes, heaters, as needed to support the existing control system. Electric motors are the […]
Journal bearings are a housing shell or metal sleeve that allows a shaft to rotate freely inside while the assembly is structurally supported. Numerous journal bearing applications exist: Journal bearings can be used in low-speed operations (5 rpm or less) in a grease lubricated brass sleeve. Pictured is an oil ring lubricated Babbitt bearing in […]
April is Earth Month, and we can think of nothing more greener than an electric motor rewind. An electric motor rewind can be done to make a motor workable again without the high cost of a new motor. At CMT, we can rewind a motor in an emergency, which means your downtime is minimal. Usually, […]
Electric motors are expected to perform in a wide variety of environments. Sometimes they are installed in areas that are wet and dirty. These harsh environments require special features to motors and frequent maintenance. CMT has a proven track record of adapting electric motors to meet tough use. Pictured is a DC motor designed for […]
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 […]
Large electric motors are used by public utility companies to do important work. The 2500 HP motor pictured is used to drive a large pump that provides cooling water to an electricity-producing turbine generator. These critical motors can be rebuilt many times over in order to insure the continued operation of power generating equipment. Some […]
An electric motor rewind can be done to make a motor workable again without the high cost of paying for a new motor. A motor can also be rewound in an emergency, thus minimizing a customer’s downtime. For example, if an AC motor fails, it usually means that the insulation or coils were damaged by […]
