Electric Motors can be rewound easily, but often to the same specs which may have caused the problem in the first place. As part of an ERIKS rewind we look at the cause of the outage and work with our clients to repair or replace accordingly.
Part of this value added service we acknowledge the rewind costs, running costs, production outage and lead times. Then inform you if it would be more economical to buy a newer more energy efficient motor, giving you the best value for money.
An electric motor typically accounts for as much as 65% of a site's electrical energy usage. So ensuring your motors are running at their most energy-efficient can make all the difference to your profitability.
ERIKS Technical Services' multidisciplined expertise and over 95 years experience in refurbishment, maintenance and repair makes it easier for you to make your motors more efficient, more reliable and more productive.
ERIKS product range includes fractional horsepower equipment right through to 168,000 kilowatts, 55 Tonnes, these facilities are backed by a management system that is accredited to ISO 9001.
