Training for electric motor testing

SKF training helps users of SKF equipment to optimize their predictive motor maintenance programs and motor repair/rebuild efficiencies to increase profitability.

Optimal plant operation and rebuild accuracy are among the most common objectives of maintenance and motor shop personnel. SKF motor theory basics and technology training courses offer more than traditional equipment training programs. These courses enable maintenance and motor shop professional to produce results from electrical motor programs that optimize plant and shop operation. These programs emphasize overall knowledge of motor theory coupled with basic and advanced operational knowledge of testing equipment. When completed, users of SKF electric motor test equipment have the ability to:
  • Boost productivity
    Learn testing techniques that ensure motor reliability, increasing plant efficiency or decreasing motor shop warranty work.
  • Make informed decisions
    Learn how to acquire data that becomes the foundation for fact-based maintenance management.
  • Become proficient at troubleshooting
    Understanding basic motor theory and the reasons that motors fail increases the maintenance professional's ability to find problems quickly and return rotating equipment to service.
  • Extend maintenance intervals through increased knowledge
    Knowing motor conditions plant-wide enables maintenance professionals the ability to time maintenance intervals to suit process watch lists.
  • Avoid costly downtime
    Motor failure costs industries hundreds of thousands of dollars or more each year. Learn the techniques and obtainvaluable information to detect motor problems prior to failure, avoiding costly downtime.
  • Increase efficiency of critical equipment
    Businesses own equipment that is critical to their unique processes. Ensuring these machines' reliability is paramount to profitability of the plant. Obtain the knowledge necessary to understand the health of critical equipment.
