Hammond Electric Motors, Inc. Services
At Hammond Electric all our winding and repair work takes place in a heated and air conditioned shop with the latest in computer controlled equipment. Every motor we repair is core loss tested, surge tested, hipot tested, megger, and micro ohm test to insure that it will function flawlessly for you. We use only class H insulation, lead wire, varnish and magnet wire in rewinds. Coils are made on our computer controlled automated winding machine to insure uniformity in our windings. We use a computer control thermal decay oven (set at 725 degree F) to remove the varnish from your stator before winding in order to prevent core damage to your core iron. After stripping we then check the core iron to make sure that your motor has not be compromised. After winding the motor it is again micro ohm tested, surge and hipoted to make sure it will function properly.
