Westin Drives shortlisted as finalist for Contribution to Skills and Training at AEMT Awards
On November 17 Westin Drives will be attending the 2022 AEMT Awards – a fantastic event celebrating achievements within the Electrical and Mechanical industry.
Seven award categories have been chosen to demonstrate excellence in the Electrical and Mechanical trades. Here at Westin Drives, we’re delighted to have been shortlisted as a finalist for the Contribution to Skills & Training Award.
Our story is a simple one: we identified a lack of experience in the sector like many industries and needed to come up with a solution ourselves.
In the main, this is based on:
In addition, we source training from our Manufacturer partners WEG, SKF, Sprint Electric, Radicon and LENZE for specific product training.
So far this has worked well for us and we are proud to be recognised for this commitment by the AEMT.
Repairing a 75kw Siemens motor
Here you can see a relatively old 75kw Siemens motor we have repaired for one of our customers in the plastics industry.
The customer complained that the motor was noisy on run down. After it was dismantled and assessed, we found that the grease was degraded and the bearings were showing their age.
The motor was given a thorough service which included the rotor balancing to G2.5 and new SKF bearings fitted. The test run and condition monitoring proved that the motor was returned to a healthy condition following our service.
After a fresh paint job, the motor is now ready to be returned to the customer and re-commissioned.
