Manufacturing encompasses a broad range of industries that turn raw materials into processed goods. This process powers industries such as automotive, pharmaceuticals, pulp and paper, textiles, and food and beverage.
Motors and generators are essential to run manufacturing and material handling equipment. For example, industries that focus on consumable goods, such as beverages and pharmaceuticals, use motors in the processing and bottling stages. For these reasons, motors and generators must be reliable and regularly inspected.
Renown Electric is a trusted leader in motor and generator services across many industries. Learn more about why motor maintenance is crucial for every manufacturer and how we serve diverse industries across consumer, commercial, and industrial markets.
The Importance of Motor Maintenance and Repair for the Manufacturing Sector
Motors are at the heart of most manufacturing processes. They power tools, conveyance systems, bottling or packaging equipment, and vehicles that transport finished goods to the next stage in the supply chain. Malfunctioning motor systems cause unscheduled downtime, which slows down processing, creates manufacturing errors, and shuts down entire manufacturing stages.
Companies can avoid these expensive consequences by keeping motors in good condition. Routine inspections, preventative maintenance, and strict schedules for parts maintenance and replacement can help manufacturers keep their motors operating in optimal conditions, reducing the risk of disastrous breakage.
Good motor maintenance can also extend the lifespan of the motors themselves and the surrounding systems. Prematurely worn motors are more susceptible to damage, generate excessive heat that damages other parts, and can break off and contaminate manufactured goods. Well-maintained motor systems produce better, more consistent results, which streamline the entire manufacturing process.
Common Industries Serviced
Renown Electric serves multiple industries that rely on advanced motor systems to power their manufacturing efforts. Learn more about the following industries and their motor system requirements.
Automotive manufacturing and steel industries both rely on powerful motor systems to fabricate strong metal pieces. Cold rolling, CNC machinery, and assembly lines use motor systems with unique rates of usage, risks to operation, and maintenance demands.
Pulp and Paper
Mechanical pulping requires motors to create fine pulp for paper with consistent thicknesses. Both ground pulping and thermomechanical pulping processes use a motor-powered refiner to break down wood chips into fibrous pulp.
Textile manufacturing companies rely on motor-powered equipment to process raw materials, create threads, and produce desired finishes. This process gets increasingly complex when combining materials and adding specialized treatments.
Motor-powered manufacturing equipment also provides part fabrication, cutting, and shaping capabilities. In the aviation industry, for example, this equipment can produce aerospace-grade aluminum, steel, carbon composite, and titanium parts that companies need for various assembly processes.
In the wood and lumber industry, motor-powered equipment is used to cut down trees, chop lumber, and carry heavy loads of wood. It’s important to maintain these motors so they continue to perform in both busy factories and remote forest work sites.
Pharmaceutical manufacturing uses motor-powered equipment for milling, coating, granulating, tablet pressing, and bottling. These automated processes must be precise to produce safe and effective medication.
Metal stamping involves presses and dies to form sheet metal into new shapes. To guarantee that each stamping iteration is properly cut without putting undue stress on the workpiece, stamping equipment requires precise levels of power generated by a motor.
Chemical and gas manufacturing centers need precise systems that can mix, filter, and heat in-process batches. Routine motor maintenance is essential for ensuring that products meet regulatory standards.
Metal extrusion requires large amounts of power because it involves pushing lengths of metal against the hole of a die to create a specific cross-sectional profile. The process relies on motor-powered machinery.
Precision machining—rotary transfer machining, automatic screw machining, CNC turning and milling—occurs in nearly every industry. Motors control the torque, rotational speed, and power of these machining tools.
Can and Bottle Manufacturing
Producing can and bottle containers for consumable products also involves motorized machines. These systems form aluminum and glass as well as convey the containers to packaging stations.
