electric motor & generator rewinding
At HECO, we don't believe in off-the-shelf solutions to electric motor rewinding & repair. That kind of approach might fix a problem now, but won't prevent it from happening again. And you have better things to do than to chase the same repair problem time and again. So before we start any repair, we ask "Why." Why did the failure occur? What can be done to keep it from occurring again? Only then will we begin the repair. And our capabilities there are second to none.
HECO has performed hundreds of successful redesigns for improved and longer lasting motor windings. Original motor designs (manufactured from 1950 to 1980) allow for modifications that can make repairs to your existing electric motor a better choice than buying a replacement. The newer motor designs have improved insulation but typically run much hotter than the older original units do. This higher heat factor is directly related to the smaller motor sizes used today (to replace existing older motors). The main
concern is that the newer motor designs might not have the same lifespan
as the original units, which makes it worth considering the redesign option.
Our goal is to improve upon an original motor's design: We provide superior winding designs with better insulation materials and increased wire cross-sectional area, thereby delivering a well-engineered and much-improved final product.
