When a motor malfunctions, a cascade effect occurs and the process at work may experience damages or lag time. This can have negative economic consequences for a company. It is important to have reliable and efficient emergency servo motor repair services on hand to get the system up and running again and to provide a safe work setting. When evaluating servo motor repair services such as K + S Services, take a moment to consider experience and reliability.
A servo motor is important for controlling the velocity of certain mechanized processes. Servo motors are used in automation all over the world. A professional in automation repair must be familiar with servo motors and with the methods used to identify damages. The most common method for identifying reasons for incorrect operation is with a computer-run load test. This tool simulates the load placed on a system and provides data that team members then use to diagnose a problem. A load test falls in the middle of the overall servo repair process, and is one part of the certified eight-step repair system used by K+S. The other steps include:
- Receiving parts
- Evaluating the damaged parts
- Developing a quote
- Obtaining approval to repair
- Repairing the damaged part
- Testing the repair
- Preparing reports
- Returning part to client
To properly apply this repair system, repair services must be familiar with the types of servo motors that need to be repaired. Different motor systems may require different load tests. That is why being aware of different kinds of servo motors and having experience evaluating them is important. This makes identifying the problem and determining the solution much easier. Such a skillset is developed through experience with servo motors and a familiarity with the most common damages seen. For example, repairs may be needed on a servo nut runner system, or within the servo motor itself.
While some wear-and-tear is normal, you should not be repairing motors on a regular basis. As an industry, you want servo repairs that return the servo motor to a fully functioning state that will last for a long time. Servo motor repair services should be done by companies that are reliable and dependable, and by companies that provide consistent and well-informed results.
One way to meet this requirement is by keeping you as the client informed. That is why after evaluating a damaged part, repair services should inform you about the problem and potential solutions and quotes before moving forward. Additionally, reliable repair services will work to prevent future damages. This can be done through a standard Failure Analysis Report that explains potential reasons why a servo motor was damaged. With this information, you can evaluate the overall system and make changes to improve motor functionality.
