Even amid the pandemic, Hi-Speed has continued to leverage technology to keep our customers and partners up to speed on the latest industry trends and education. One of the many webinars we presented was on the topic of DC motor maintenance. Important steps in the development and implementation of planned maintenance programs for DC motors include following a recommended preventative maintenance schedule, consisting of the following regimen:

  • Monthly: Wipe off dust, dirt, oil, etc.
  • Quarterly: Clean vent screens and fans
  • Semi-Annually: Lubricate bearings; vacuum or blow out interior; check commutator, brushes and leads; check brush spring tension; test armature windings; check electrical connections; and test field coils
