If a project is defined as rush, we will ensure that the labor component of its completion has minimal impact on the critical path of its completion. Therefore, if all parts are in house and no outside services are necessary, we will continually work on the project until completion, adding as much overtime onto the project as necessary until completion. If we have to wait for material deliveries to complete the project, we will not work overtime on it.
A motor rewind includes baking out the old motor, cleaning, replacing wire coils, insulating, varnish sealing and changing all bearings & seals before performing all quality testing. A reconditioning does not include replacing the wire coils.
The Following are guidelines to use when rewinding USEM inverter duty motors: Use Thermaleze QS magnet wire. If not available, triple build wire may substitute. Avoid loose windings – use slot fillers as required. Insulate between phases – both end turns and in slots. Secure end turns – tie or band both winding ends. Be especially careful to avoid damaging winding magnet wire. Recommend VPI treatment for all rewinds.
For most equipment items, manual indication is satisfactory to calculate specific dimensions for rebuilds. If item damage is too great or the piece is very complex, we will digitally map and indicate the part (generally 2-8 hrs) and produce engineered approved drawings before remanufacturing the product. In some cases, customer review & approval will be required before production of the new unit.
