Do Your Servo Motors Look Like This: A Case for Standard Reconditioning

How Standard Reconditioning can vastly decrease the odds of a catastrophic breakdown

The machine environment can be a caustic one, with all kinds of opportunity for contamination to spew onto a servo motor.  Though your system and servo’s may be running fine, it’s only a matter of time before a buildup of contaminates (such as cutting fluids and metal shavings) will eventually creep inside the bearings and the stator and make a motor vulnerable to a catastrophic breakdown.  Contamination in the encoder and brake assembly due to improper maintenance is also common.
