Bad Servo / Servo Motor Failure Analysis
Upon isolation of a recurring fault, we can offer suggestions to increase your servo’s mean-time-between-failures. With your approval, we will design and fabricate the engineering change at our facility. Our experienced staff will work closely with you every step of the way. Quality control is assured because, in most cases, our complete metal shop allows us to fabricate the recommended modification in-house with little or no outsourcing required.
A-1 Servomotor Repair has a complete machine shop capable of modifying or altering servo motors to meet your specific needs. This is not a “job shop.” Like our servo motor repair operation, our machine shop is committed to nothing but the repair, modification and alteration of servo devices.
Unlike typical machine shops, our operators have an in depth knowledge of servo motors. While a good machine shop may have the ability to accomplish specific machining, it is seldom that they understand anything about a servo device.
Most machine work requires that the servo be disassembled before machining can begin. This usually takes special tools and fixtures to prevent damage to the motor components – tools that a “job shop” will not have. We have the custom tooling and fixtures necessary – our facility is specifically designed for rebuilding servo motors.
In addition to special tooling required, most servo motors have very strong magnets that require special handling. Welding near strong magnets requires special techniques to properly accomplish the weld and prevent permanent damage to the magnets. Our machinists have the experience needed to modify or alter your servo devices while protecting the integrity of the servo itself.
