Course description

Description
One of the most important factors to consider when repairing motors is to understand why they failed. This seminar will focus on common as well as unusual types of failures broken down by components.

This seminar is intended for anyone interested in understanding motor failures, and those who want to serve customers by addressing the cause of failure rather than the symptom. An extensive resource manual includes hundreds of photos of a wide range of failures, with the likely causes listed, and a clear methodology for confirming the probable cause of each failure. Each student will also receive a CD-ROM containing a PDF version of the manual with almost all photographs in color.

Seminar Highlights

  • Root cause methodology
  • Bearing failures
  • Winding failures
  • Rotor failures
  • Shaft failures
  • Mechanical failures
  • DC motor failures
  • Accessory failures
  • Case studies
