It’s no secret that electric motor reliability can be a problem. The fact is that electric motors are among the highest in reliability incident reports, a problem that leads to a continual cycle of costly repairs and unplanned downtime.

While bearing failure is recognised as the primary mechanical symptom of motor failure, most motor rebuilders are not trained to investigate the underlying causes of bearing failure like improper maintenance, handling and installation in service. In most cases motor repair shops simply replace bearings and return the motor, which once again is doomed for failure, and the cycle continues.

Move from continual repair to constant reliability.

You can stop the cycle of continual repair costs and downtime by using an SKF certified rebuilder such as Fletcher Moorland to repair your electric motors. Our SKF certified technicians underwent specialised training in motor repair with an emphasis on root cause failure analysis, bearing installation, lubrication and condition monitoring.

The objective : Prevent reoccurring failures and increase motor service life. Being SKF certified means we must meet exacting standards and specifications which are regularly audited to ensure compliance. In addition repairs are only done using SKF bearings.

Start expecting more:
Enhance productivity and profitability. 

By identifying the root causes of bearing failure, SKF certified rebuilds open the door to new levels of motor reliability, productivity, strengthening your bottom line. In addition, your motors will operate more efficiently, which can have a significant impact on energy consumption.
Decreased downtime, reduced energy consumption, reduced maintenance costs and a decrease in the total cost of ownership. The numbers can add up quickly to help you improve profitability.

SKF Certification

As a collaborative effort between SKF, eligible motor service firms such as Fletcher Moorland and participating SKF Authorised distributors,
the SKF Certified electric motor rebuilder program raises the bar on motor service.

Industry statistics have shown that between
40%-70% of electric motor failures are bearing
Related. For this reason, the SKF Certified program focuses on identifying the root cause of bearing failures and the repair methods that will correct the problem so that the motor can achieve optimum performance.

Certification requires that personnel undergo extensive training in the factors that influence bearing life. Technicians are tested and required to meet certification requirements.SKF Certified repair shops are regularly audited to assure complete compliance with program standards.

Here’ s what you can expect from SKF certified rebuilds :

SKF Certified, highly skilled service professionals.
Are equipped with the necessary tools and equipment to assure you that your motor is serviced right every time.

Consistent specifications and standards.

SKF has established specification standards that must be met for every motor repair. By using an SKF certified rebuilder you can be sure that each rebuilt motor meets the highest standards for quality and consistency.

Root cause failure analysis.

Most repair shops don’t do it. SKF certified shops such as Fletcher Moorland must do it.
Your motor will be thoroughly analysed to determine the cause of failure. After a complete check of those components that could have a negative impact on bearing and motor service life, necessary repairs will be made so that your motor can run more efficiently.
The benefits are clear : a longer lasting motor that will run smoother and cooler and reduce energy consumption. Specifications are not enough. In addition to regular audits to determine that motors are rebuilt according to specification, each shop is audited for cleanliness, orderliness and environmental responsibility.

Advanced technology and equipment
SKF Certified shops such as Fletcher Moorland have access to SKF’s leading bearing technology and engineering expertise. Certification requires that repair shops utilise the best available equipment for bearing mounting, dis-mounting, measurement and repair.

Quality, SKF products and practices
When your motor is service by an SKF Certified rebuilder such as Fletcher Moorland, only high-quality SKF bearings will be used. Repairs will be performed in an environment that meets SKF’s stringent requirements for cleanliness, and proper storage and handling of bearings, components and serviced motors.

Ongoing excellence
As new products, tools and repair methods are developed, SKF certified repair shop procedures will be updated and on-going training and certification will be required.

Trust the SKF certification advantage:

Stop the cycle of motor repair. Require that your electric motor repair shop is SKF Certified, and move to a higher level of reliability, productivity and enhanced profit potential.
