Traction Motor Repair

Independent Electric's railroad traction motor repair service incorporates a thorough inspection of the motor and all its individual parts. Physical damage, such as wear and distortion, is readily identified and dealt with. Electrical and core loss testing is also used to determine what the problem is. Independent Electric's repairs includes replacing worn or damaged parts, including seals, gaskets, and bearings. We also balance the armature and do a test run of the motor with no load. Our dedicated and highly experienced staff utilizes state of the art technology and expertise to bring your railroad traction motor back to OEM specifications or better.
