Electric motors are a vital part of most military, industrial, or civilian vessels. But as with all mechanical parts, extended use will result in a decrease in performance due to wear and tear. Needless to say, this causes the motor to eventually burn out. When a motor breaks down or starts showing signs of an imminent burnout, you’re faced with a choice: buy a new one, or take the old motor to a reputable San Diego motor rewinding service. But what is motor rewinding, exactly and how is it different from the regular process of motor repair?
Put simply, it’s an armature winding process that enables your old motor to regain some - or even all - of its original efficiency. When performed by a reliable motor rewinding service, it revitalizes the motor and allows you to get a few more years out of it even if it failed to start at some point. While this undoubtedly sounds great, there are a number of factors you should consider before deciding to rewind. Read on to learn more about motor rewinding fundamentals, such as the motor rewinding formula.
