Metal & Steel Mill Motor Service and Repair
IPS combines single-source capabilities for metals and steel mill motor repair with locations in every major steel market in the U.S. We provide repair services, field services and distribution, from predictive and preventive maintenance to emergency repair services and outage support.
Whether we’re working on a VPI or B-stage hard coil rewind during a planned outage or fast-tracking emergency services, we deliver unmatched quality and service with lead times the competition can’t match.
Large DC motor and generator repair
We specialize in the service and repair of large DC armatures and field frames. If your mills run its large DC motors at 250% overload, you’re seeing predictable problems — we handle all of them.
We recondition and rewind large DC motors, with significant improvements in dielectric and thermal performance, as our processes and insulating materials are superior to those used by OEMs in the 20th century). We also diagnose and correct ground issues and carbon buildup on brushes, repair burning on leading and trailing edges, and remove surface contamination, such as pickling and acid damage.
AC motor and generator rewinds
IPS VPI engineered insulation systems provide the reliability and performance for your most demanding applications. We provide our rewind technologies with motor design and uprating, as well as mechanical modifications to enclosures, shafts, seals, fans and bearings:
Comprehensive electrical tests
IPS has the industry’s most advanced array of diagnostics, to validate recommendations, document “as received” and “as shipped” performance, and support one standard for quality coast to coast.
Field services for metals and steel mills
We can handle all of your AC and DC motors, including specialty motors and older, unsupported units, embedded generators and mechanical components — gearboxes, pumps, compressors and fans. Over time, our predictive and preventive maintenance can help you move from reactive repairs and unplanned downtime to more cost-effective, planned service.
Our field service veterans have spent years in mills and metal plants, troubleshooting, developing engineered solutions and keeping electric motors and generators running. IPS backs their tests, maintenance and repairs with some of the industry’s leading engineers.
We specialize in mechanical services and mill work on large, highly engineered components. IPS repair technicians have spent years working on the mechanical power transmission components in mills and metals manufacturing. We also rebuild gearboxes, pumps and blowers. Our machining services include:
Custom AC & DC motor manufacturing
Do you have an old synchronous or adjustable speed motor you can’t replace? IPS remanufactures both, as well as large and extra-large DC motors, generators, transformers and rectifiers — all to OEM spec.
Our national repair and service agreements with leading OEMs gives us access to their drawings, parts and engineering support. We can help when you need a replacement motor with a short lead time and we also reverse engineer older, unsupported assets.
