Industrial equipment servicing

Universal Electric Company repairs, rewinds and maintains all kinds of electrical machines such as motors, generators, transformers, welding machines and other specialised electromagnetic units. The company has extensive experience in rewinding D.C and A.C electric motors and generators of all sizes and power ratings.

Universal Electric Company’s primary activity centres around rewinding of electrical machines. When the windings of an electric motor or generator are damaged, rewinding can be done to make it workable again without the high cost of paying for a new machine. At Universal electric Company, they specialise in removing old windings that have burned out, preparing the machine for the insertion of new windings and finishing these with suitable insulation and varnish to make the machine as good as new (and often better)!

Electric generators usually have an engine to drive a generator which produces electrical power for the consumer. The principles of operation of electric motors and electric generators are based on the same laws of the interactions of electromagnetic fields on the stator and the rotor. Generators also vary in size depending on the power that they are expected to deliver to the load.

When these machines experience a fault due to a range of reasons, large currents will flow in their windings which in turn will cause these windings to burn out due to excessive heat. It has to be said that these machines run at relatively high speeds (3000 rpm) and at this speed their rotors develop very high inertia. In the event of a fault, this inertia is converted into mechanical power that causes further destruction to the machine.
