There are a lot of electric motor repair shops in any given area within the United States, but what do you look for to determine if that shop does quality work? An electric motor repair shop with EASA accreditation is a great place to start.
EASA stands for Electrical Apparatus Service Association, Inc. According to the EASA website, EASA is:
“an international trade organization of more than 1,800 electromechanical sales and service firms in nearly 70 countries. Through our many engineering and educational programs, EASA provides members with a means of keeping up to date on materials, equipment, and state-of-the-art technology.”
They are recognized internationally as the leader in the electrical and mechanical apparatus sales, service, and repair industry, who serve companies that repair or perform regular service or maintenance on electric motors, pumps, drives, controls, gearboxes, or other rotating machinery.
EASA provides a robust support network for anyone who works with electric motors and related equipment. They provide resources and extensive training on the repair of electric motors. This has led to the establishment of an international accreditation program for service centers to assure exceptional service and repair work on all electric motors. They have worked with service centers all over the world to establish best practices for all electrical and mechanical repair procedures and electric motor rewinding. This reduces the number of errors and repeat work on your equipment and improves its efficiency and reliability.
Becoming an EASA-accredited service center is not an easy process. It includes an in-depth assessment of the electric motor repair shop’s equipment, processes, and procedures, and must pass an accreditation assessment from independent third-party auditors to assure that the shop follows all best practices and procedures for electrical and mechanical repairs for all three-phase, squirrel-cage motors including electric motor rewinding.
This accreditation is based on these industry resources: ANSI/EASA AR100: Recommended Practice for the Repair of Rotating Electrical Apparatus and the Good Practice Guide of the 2003 study The Effect of Repair/Rewinding on Motor Efficiency, by EASA and the Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT). This ensures that these repair processes are thoroughly covered, including:
Although EASA accreditation cannot guarantee perfect repairs every time, it can ensure that you receive better customer service, improved reliability for your electric motors, and less downtime.
