The two major types of electric motors used in various commercial and industrial applications are AC and DC motors. Each of these motors has their own operational methods, uses, and advantages that enable them to function effectively for various applications. The practice of remanufacturing electric motors is an economically and environmentally sound practice that also provides a high-quality end product for the user. At Warfield Electric Co., we are your source for a wide array of new and remanufactured electric motors and drive units that are ideal for material handling, ground support equipment, industrial operations, and wind turbine applications.
For some commercial and industrial entities, purchasing a new electric motor may be cost prohibitive, which is one reason why it is often beneficial to go with a refurbished or remanufactured electric motor instead that can operate just as well as a new motor.
The Motor Remanufacturing Process
The remanufacturing process involves the disassembly of a motor with each component passing through an evaluation process. Any worn or outdated components are removed and replaced with updated equivalent components to ensure the motor’s integrity and dependability, with certain original materials and components kept in place for continued use. The process of remanufacturing electric motors in this way avoids unnecessary waste and saves energy.
Remanufacturing is often practiced with various consumer electronic products, and more and more industrial companies have also utilized this process to save energy and reduce waste in various high technology, complex manufacturing applications, including those involving electric motors. The results that come from remanufacturing typically include lower costs than a complete replacement, without sacrificing any necessary quality in the end product.
The Quality of Remanufactured Electric Motors
Despite what some may think, remanufactured electric motors are typically durable and highly reliable. Even though used electric motors are refurbished or remanufactured, when professionals who understand how to achieve exceptional quality results are involved in the remanufacturing process, the end product can seem like a brand-new product.
