Maintaining and Repairing the Vibrating Motor

Do you know the motor vibrates? It is a kind of electric motor which obtains the vibrating force through the effect of centrifugal force. This centrifugal force is generated by the eccentric shaft and block with fast rotating speed. These motors are widely used in many industrial sectors, such as hydropower construction, thermal power generation, metallurgy and light industry.

Because this vibrating motor is quite applicable, how to maintain and repair it is the concern of many people. As far as we know, most of the motors are installed in dirty working environment and while this motor has no fan to dissipate heat. So based on these factors, some specific aspects of the vibrating motor must be maintained.

What specific aspects of the vibrating motor should be maintained? Priority is given to the scope of inspection: (a) check the cleanliness of the motor surface; (b) remove dust immediately. Or else, it will have bad influence on heat dissipation; (c) check whether the fixed bolt of the tail is flexible or not; (d) tighten the torque by force with a wrench when the moment becomes flexible; (e) check whether the vibration is abnormal or not. Next, this article will introduce the processing method. First, when the vibration is abnormal, people should stop the electric motor. Second, people check whether the seal of the protective cover is tight. Otherwise, people should stop the operation. Third, the public must also pay attention to whether the motor cable is worn or not. If the wear is serious, the motor must be stopped. Fourth, remember to add oil under the grease gun every two months.

In addition to the things mentioned above, several other things must also be considered by the workers. For example, the bearings used in these electric motors must be heavy bearings because they can withstand thrust loads. Wherever installed, bearing life is not affected by thrust loads. What’s more, it is better to choose an elastic cable as the main cable, because ordinary cables are easy to wear or break.

In short, the vibrating motor has a destructive effect on the entire equipment. Therefore, if people do not use it accurately, not only will the service life of the motor be shortened, but also the related equipment will be destroyed. In order to take full advantage of the vibrating motor, it is recommended that people inspect and maintain it frequently.
