Buying a re-built motor from Lift Parts Warehouse can be a realistic option that will save you a significant amount of the expense of buying a brand-new motor, while keeping you sure that you will enjoy a reliable operation that is up to the nominal specifications for a long period of time. Of course, people are naturally hesitant when it comes to making such a decision since most re-built motors out there come with no guarantees and have an obscure history of operation. Here is why taking such a decision is a good idea, and why trusting Lift Parts Warehouse is a key element.
What we do here at LPW is to first pick motors that are truly suitable for the re-building process. This picking is being done through a screening procedure where our expert technicians are performing performance measurements, check the characteristics of each motor and determine their suitability carefully. Next, we disassemble all parts and closely examine their surfaces for cracks, and even using profilometers for the determination of the roughness of key areas such as the surface of lubrication parts that need to retain oil droplets. Then we completely replace the parts that have worn-out sections with new ones and then re-assemble the motor as per the manufacturer’s specifications in relation to the bolting torque and the specific filler values that need to be achieved. To bring things together the way they should be, we perform high-precision milling, grinding and surfacing as required.
For the electric motors, we follow a similar procedure by replacing the bearings, measuring the performance of the armature after we have thoroughly cleaned the motor components, and then adjusting the lubrication system to achieve optimal performance. In the cases that it is required, we also conduct a complete rewinding on the motor and then ensure that it is performing as per the manufacturer’s specifications, meeting all values of the nominal performance diagrams at the full RPM range. In all cases, we use the right tools and top-quality replacement parts to ensure that they will last for a long time.
The end result is a practically new motor that costs somewhere in the range of 30% to 70% of the cost of a new motor, coming with a limited time guarantee and performing reliably during this period. This lower cost combined with no downtime and need for additional repair can increase the profitability for your company significantly, making the choice of a re-built engine/motor from Lift Parts Warehouse a key decision for the achievement of a business plan or strategic goal.
