Electric motor rebuilding
Facing another electric motor repair? Go from Continual Repair to Constant Reliability.
What if you could easily identify repair shops that offer the right experience and expertise to quickly, efficiently, and effectively diagnose and fix your electric motors? Now you can-thanks to the SKF Certified Rebuilder Program.
To earn the prestigious designation of SKF Certified Rebuilder, electric motor shops must meet exacting standards and specifications. For you, those requirements translate into longer, more reliable motor service life-along with enhanced performance and profitability.
Three Reasons to Choose Only SKF-Certified Shops
- The right know-how. Since 40% to 70% of motor failures are related to bearings, it's no surprise that high-quality bearings are key for reliable motors. But the right bearings alone won't deliver the results you need. How parts are installed, lubricated, handled, stored, aligned, transported, and maintained is equally important. At SKF-certified shops, technicians complete extensive training in electric motor analysis, bearing installation, lubrication systems, and condition monitoring technologies-giving them the skills they need to perform optimal diagnoses and repairs.
- The right resources. SKF 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 right.
- The right approach. Becoming SKF certified isn't a one-time process. Rather, all SKF Certified Rebuilders must complete regular audits to ensure compliance with our rigorous standards. They must also meet our requirements for continuous improvement and competence development. Because when we improve, so do your bottom-line benefits-including enhanced performance and reduced cost of ownership.
