We see an increase in heat errors for Indramat servo motors during the hot summer months. Indramat motors are designed to operate within a specific temperature range. Servo performance suffers when your system gets too hot, and your machines can fail. Call 479-422-0390 to get your system running again as quickly as possible. However, there are things that you can do to prevent Indramat servo motor heat failures.
Keep your Indramat servo motors clean
Cleaning servo motors isn’t about keeping up appearances. It ensures that your system operates at optimal performance; this also helps prevent unscheduled downtime. Layers of filth make your servos work harder, and dirt makes it difficult for your system to dump heat properly. Overworked servos lead to Indramat servo motor overtemperature warnings and shutdowns.
Keep servos clean and remove excess debris and pollution. While you’re at it, check vents and airways to make sure they aren’t clogged.
Make sure your climate controlled cabinet works
You must keep your system in an air-conditioned cabinet. The cabinet keeps your system at the correct temperature, keeps your servos clean (by limiting pollution), prevents moisture and condensation build up, and regulates humidity.
If you have an air-conditioned cabinet, make sure that it works. Your entire system must stay within its correct temperature range. If the air conditioning goes out, fix it as quickly as possible. Running your Indramat servo motors without adequate cooling accelerates wear and tear on the motor.
Replace fans and blowers
Swapping out defective fans and blowers is a simple and cost-effective way to keep your servos cool and prevent heat errors. If your Indramat system uses a different cooling method, make sure that it’s installed correctly and working properly.
Maintenance and inspection for Indramat servo motors
Preventive maintenance and inspection for Indramat motion control systems extends the lifetime of your servos, and it helps minimize unscheduled downtime. Don’t wait until there’s a problem to take action. Be proactive and prevent error codes before they happen.
