Service, repair, engineering, and remanufacturing for DC motors

IPS single-source capabilities include service, repair, engineering, remanufacturing, and distribution for DC motors. Our North American service centers provide regional support for metals, steel, paper mills, and forestry product plants.

We work to improve reliability and performance in DC motors, which typically run beyond their design capacity. IPS engineers and technicians use these motors, whether new or legacy, as a starting point to engineer for the application.

We improve on 20th century design and materials, then leverage our scale and North American resources to deliver fleet-level upgrades.

IPS comprehensive testing for DC motors

IPS field service technicians run comprehensive tests on DC motors, in close consultation with our engineers. These tests include:
  • Vibration analysis
  • Ultrasonic testing
  • Oil analysis
  • Hi-pot 
  • Surge 
  • Megger
  • Motor Circuit Evaluation (MCE)
Our diagnostics shape our predictive and preventive maintenance recommendations. They also guide our solution development, to target failure modes and improve reliability.

IPS service & repair for DC motors

IPS specializes in the service and repair of large DC armatures and field frames. We recondition and rewind large DC motors, for significant improvements in dielectric and thermal performance.

We also diagnose and resolve ground issues, remove carbon buildup on brushes, and remove surface contaminants, such as pickling and acid damage.

IPS provides authorized warranty repair for DC motors, plus replacement parts.

In-shop remanufacturing for DC motors

Once we’ve identified failure modes in operation, we can determine the application’s specific requirements and engineer improvements. IPS technicians build custom-engineered DC motors, using higher quality materials and holding tighter tolerances.

IPS remanufactures and rewinds small DC motors for elevators up to extra-large motors weighing 245,000 lbs. Our legacy agreements with ABB Reliance give us access to DC motor prints — we also reverse engineer and remanufacture without drawings.

IPS distribution for DC motors

IPS is a master distributor with pricing agreements with the major OEMs. We maintain inventories in strategic warehousing across North America, for fast shipping and delivery.

Our network of used equipment distributors offers additional options if you need DC motors with a short lead time. In addition to sourcing, we provide drop-in replacement, installation, and commissioning.
