Our Traction Motor Repair Services
Traction motors will undergo a series of electrical tests to check for proper voltage levels, resistance, continuity, and surge.
We remanufacture traction motors and offer brush holder reconditioning for optimal performance. We can recondition bearings, field coils, gasket kits, and other components within your motor.
Rewinding allows for your motor’s speed to increase and it offers smooth control operation of acceleration as well.
Our technicians take a close look at your motor’s oil to assess specific properties such as base oils and additives to indicate wear and tear or contamination. Doing so allows us to create a reference point and target the area of repair.
Overhaul services include dismantling and inspection, removal of old bearings, replacing and repairing faulty components, and test runs.
