Motor / Generator

Electrical machines are the prime movers in this industry. Everything depends on their availability

Electrical machines are the primary engines of the industry. Everything depends on their
availability. If a motor stops, production stops and if a generator is not operating,
there is no electricity in the power network. Typical faults that can appear in these machines are:

  • Rotor unbalance
  • Roller bearing damage
  • Misalignment
  • Field asymmetries (stator, rotor)
  • Loose parts.

Condition monitoring helps to avoid disruptions, to detect wear processes early on and to
optimize the service life of the components. Corrective measures, such as shaft alignment,
field balancing or measuring foundation flatness, round up the implementation of active
servicing for these machine types.
