Electric motors are everywhere. From transportation to manufacturing, electric motors are an essential part of modern life. Businesses that depend on the machinery of all sizes and purposes need an expert on-staff to keep production lines running strong. What is an electric motor and how is it used in the business world? What are some basic troubleshooting tips your maintenance staff need to know? Why should your employees be trained on electric motor troubleshooting?
Electric motors are machines that turn electrical energy into mechanical energy. They can use either AC (alternating current) or DC (direct current) as a power source. The type of power the machine receives often defines its use. Direct current is generally weaker or stored energy, so it’s best applied to short-term solutions like power tools, vehicles, and portable devices. Alternating current comes directly from generators and power grids. AC-powered motors are used to run manufacturing lines and industrial pumps.
Today’s businesses use all types of electric motors to help them produce goods, move inventory, and provide services to their clients.
Electric motors aren’t just used in the industrial world. Motors are found in everything from electric landscaping tools to medical facilities. These flexible machines have almost endless applications in modern business.
A malfunctioning electric motor makes it difficult to meet deadlines and endangers profits. Use these tips to get your motor back in working order before you call a repairperson.
If you still aren’t able to find the problem after performing these steps, you may need to call a professional to diagnose your machine.
Every minute your machine is down costs you potential profit. Ensure your business continues to run strong by training your employees in the basics of electric motor troubleshooting. Why should you invest in this training?
