New & Factory Rebuilt Axis Motors At Discount Prices
Our Parts Are Genuine OEM - Not "Substitutions"
We offer three types of OEM Baldor and
Glentek Motors for Fadal Machines:
- New 2013 Motors
- Remanufactured OEM
- Repair Service
No core exchange deposit is required. Saves time and
Our Reman Motors:
Remanufactured by Glentek
Besides selling new motors, we offer True OEM Remans!
Remanufactured to original and in some cases "better than your
original" condition. How is that? Not only are they put
through rigorous factory testing and repair, the motors are also
brought up to the latest design revision possible.
You can purchase a "True Reman" motor or to save the most, simply
send us your motor and we'll have it repaired by Glentek.
Total Engineering Support!
With us you're not just getting a "Part In A Box!"
Here's four key examples of the Total Support our customers
Diagnoses - Direct help in determining if you
really do need to replace the motor. When working with engineers
that design the machine, we can help determine if there's other
elements in the servo system that also need to be addressed
replacing a motor.
Documentation - We provide very simple and concise, step by step instructions
on how to install and get your replacement motor in and running.
With our documentation we also include Preventative Maintenance
tips to help avoid future failures.
Warranty - Just like "the old days", we value our
relationship with each and every customer. We are driven by
fairness and committed to your satisfaction. Click on the
About Us page to learn about what guides us today.
Support - With the combination of our original engineering knowledge and direct
interaction with both Glentek and AMC engineers, you are getting the absolute
best product support possible at installation and beyond.
The axis motors are one of the most important aspects of the machine.
Why buy from someone without the engineering experience
and the manufacturer's direct support?
Knowledge and Experience you can Trust:
Below are a few examples of our expertise with axis motors.
Axis Hardware Development:
- DC motor/amplifier design, evaluation, testing and production QC, continually evaluated many different DC Brush motors and amplifiers, from just about every manufacture in the industry.
- AC motor/amplifier design, evaluation, testing and production transition, working directly with Glentek engineers to develop both the AC Brushless motors and amplifiers, then creating a second source solution with Baldor.
- Glass Scales; integration with servo control of motors
- Temperature controlled ballscrews
Axis Software Development:
- 1010 Axis Software
- High Speed DNC - 1000 blocks per second
- Programmable Servo Gains
- Advanced Feed Forward
- Manual Pulse Dry-Run
- Volumetric Compensation (never released)
That's True Knowledge and Experience.
Why It's Important To Buy Our OEM Products:
New or Used?
- beware, some motors are being sold as "new"
when actually they are just cleaned-up, painted and passed off
The manufactures serial number is the only way to tell if the
unit is new and has all the latest design revisions. The date
code is imbedded in the serial number coding and it's easy to
tell if your getting the "Real McCoy".
Mechanicals - all motors are not the same!. They
may look the same; "cast the same shadow" but that doesn't mean
they are the same. You don't know what you getting until to
disassemble the motor and see how it was designed.
Experience has taught that lesson. Twice, years ago at Fadal we
tried numerous motors and they all failed long term tests.
It wasn't until we disassemble completely did we find out how
lousy some "Name Brand" motors were built.
Servo Motors aren't your ordinary
washing machine motors. They require quality and precision in all
We plan on adding more specific information about
motors soon for both new and repaired motors.
Input Power - The factory amplifier outputs are matched
for specific motor windings. Too little current and the motor
doesn't produce enough torque (thrust). Too much
current motors windings will over
heat, "melting" the insulation and/or windings.
- The factory motors have a carefully designed
velocity feedback system. This is a critical design aspect for smooth contouring.
Imperfections in the velocity feedback causes a "ripple" effect
in the smooth operation, which translates directly in the
Many other design aspects effect the feedback performance, here's just a
1) DC Tachometer designs without a silver commutator produce
inferior reference voltage.
2) AC motors, the type of encoder will effect ripple; actual line
count(quality) or interpolated line count (cheaper).
3) Feedback coupling - only a constant velocity coupler can
eliminate alignment errors between the motor shaft and the
UL-CE-CSA Electrical Ratings - to commonly, substitute/imitation
parts have not gone through the expensive process of having the
motor approved by the rigorous testing for safety and RF
standards. Qualified replacements must be used In order to
maintain these ratings and not impact the
Electrical Code approval of the machine.
