Westin Drives has been welcomed into the premier league of industrial electric motor repairers. Our company is one of only seven in the UK to achieve the status of SKF Certified Rebuilders after undergoing a rigorous certification process.
To satisfy the requirements, our employees completed extensive training in electric motor failure analysis, bearing installation, lubrication systems and condition monitoring technologies. The accreditation, awarded in October, demonstrates that Westin Drives has the high level of expertise and experience needed for the optimum diagnosis and repair of electric motors.
To become an SKF Certified Rebuilder, repairers must meet exacting standards. For 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.
To ensure standards are upheld, certified rebuilders must comply with requirements governing service, procedures, quality control, cleanliness, tooling, bearings, components and workplace conditions. Compliance audits and re–certification are conducted regularly by SKF.
Managing director Ian Sheppard said: “I am delighted that the expertise of our employees has received this recognition and that our many customers will benefit accordingly. It raises the bar in repair service.”
SKF says: “Certified Rebuilders have access to our unparalleled collection of parts, tools, and technical support. They're kept up to date with the latest technologies and best practices. And they're empowered to perform root-cause failure analyses and troubleshooting. In short, they have the resources they need to do your repair correctly.”
