Service and operation of drive machines

Service and operation of drive machines


The course is for maintenance technicians and is run jointly with a company called Spalt. The participants are given an overview and SPM of indications that signal a fault, as well as measured values, such as vibrations and temperature, which can be used for a prognosis.

Spalt is an official partner of ABB motors and ELIN motors and specializes in inspection, service, repair, and restarting of electric motors. Due to their many years of experience the experts can give helpful tips to avoid faults. The syllabus on SPM monitoring is conducted by a Doppelmayr specialist and a technician from the company SPM. Please see the course “OG Condition monitoring, lubricants, oil analysis, gearbox” where similar subjects are dealt with.
