As SKF Certified Rebuilders, Westin Drives is the name to trust for your electric motor rewinds and repairs. We take standards and training seriously and are one of only a handful of UK companies to gain this status, following a rigorous certification process.
To satisfy the requirements, our engineers undergo specialised training in motor repair with an emphasis on root cause failure analysis, bearing installation, lubrication, and condition monitoring. The objective is to prevent recurring failures and extend motor service life. SKF Certified Rebuilders must meet exacting standards and specifications, and are regularly audited to make sure they comply. Repairs are done right, every time, using only SKF bearings.
The accreditation shows that Westin Drives has the level of expertise and experience needed for the optimum diagnosis and repair of electric motors. For our customers, that translates into increased performance and profitability as certified rebuilds can help prevent recurring failures, extend motor service life and reduce repair costs and downtime.
When evaluating the operating cost of a motor, energy is only one element. To maximise productivity, it is vital to minimise your downtime, a goal foremost in the minds of our our rapid-response engineers. Additionally, a motor's efficiency can be maintained – or improved – by sound repair methods. Recognising these opportunities is crucial to the repair process. Research shows that, properly done, a motor may be rewound several times without significantly impairing its efficiency.
SKF CERTIFICATION ADVANTAGES
As a collaboration between SKF, eligible motor service firms, and participating SKF Authorised Distributors, the SKF Certified electric motor rebuilder programme raises the bar on motor service. Industry statistics have shown that between 40% and 70% of electric motor failures are bearing-related.
For this reason, the SKF Certified programme focuses on identifying the root cause of bearing failure and the repair methods that correct the problem so that the motor can achieve optimum performance.
Certification requires that personnel undergo extensive training in identifying and evaluating the factors that influence bearing service life. Technicians are tested and required to meet certification requirements. SKF Certified Rebuilders are regularly audited to make sure they comply with program standards.
What to expect from Westin Drives, your SKF Certified Rebuilder
SKF trained, highly skilled service professionals equipped with the latest tools and equipment to make sure that your motor is serviced right every
Consistent specifications and standards
SKF has established specification standards that must be met for every motor repair. By using an SKF Certified Rebuilder, you can be sure that each rebuilt motor meets the highest standards for quality and consistency. In addition to regular audits to confirm that motors are rebuilt according to specification, each shop is audited for cleanliness, orderliness and environmental responsibility.
Root cause failure analysis
Most repair shops don’t do such analysis. An SKF Certified Rebuilder is required and trained to do it. Your motor is thoroughly analyzed to determine the cause of failure. After a complete check of those components that could have a negative impact on bearing and motor service life, necessary repairs are made so that your motor can run at optimum efficiency. The benefits are clear: a longer lasting motor that will run smoother and cooler and reduce energy consumption.
Advanced technology and equipment
SKF Certified Rebuilders have access to SKF’s leading bearing technology and engineering expertise. And certification requires that repair shops utilize the best equipment for bearing dismounting, measurement, repair and mounting.
Quality SKF products and practices
When your motor is serviced by an SKF Certified Rebuilder, only SKF bearings will be used. And, repairs will be performed in an environment that meets SKF’s stringent requirements for cleanliness, and proper storage and handling of bearings, components and serviced motors.
As new products, tools and repair methods are developed, SKF Certified Rebuilder procedures will be updated, and on-going training and certification are mandatory. That means you will always have the advantage of SKF’s commitment to excellence.
Electric motor repairs, rewinds, supply and servicing are our specialities. We also design and install electrical control systems and offer CNC precision engineering.
