Description

 Purpose 

Assembles new electric motors and repairs motors that have been in service for one or more years.

 Input Material

 For new motors, all material is received from the Stock Room, Machine Shop, or Winding Room.  Repair Motors go to the Test Department first for electrical tests - then to the Motor Assembly & Repair Department

.Essential Functions

 New Motors are assembled by Motor Assembler I, II and III depending on size and complexity.  Repair Motors are Evaluated and Repaired only by Motor Assembler I.

 

  • For New Motors:
  • Parts are stockpiled until there are no parts missing.
  • Armature or Rotor is balanced on Balancing Machine to eliminate vibration and noise.
  • Parts, including frame, brackets, stator, rotor, and many others are assembled per the drawings and the motor is checked for run-out.
  • It then goes to test and is checked for opens or grounds.
  • After test, it goes to painting and shipping
  • For Repair Motors:
  • Motors first go through an Evaluation.  The motor is torn down completely, all parts are identified, and recommendations concerning what parts should be replaced are entered into the Evaluation & Repair Report and the motor is stored
  • Evaluation is then checked by QA and all information is sent to Sales.  The Customer Service Specialist contacts the Customer and the motor is either scrapped or refurbished.  If it is a Government motor, and it is scrapped, it must be witnessed by a Government Representative.
  • If the motor is refurbished, it is put on a local Manufacturing Department schedule.
  • A Refurbishing Kit that was previously assembled is used.
  • The parts are all washed in dielectric solvent
  • Armature or Rotor is balanced on Balancing Machine to eliminate vibration and noise.
  • The motor is assembled based on the drawings and the parts list, and then goes to Inspection and Test - minor adjustments are sometimes required.
  • The motor then goes to Painting
  • It is then returned to Motor Assembly & Repair for the installation of stencils, nameplates and external hardware
