After significant demand from AEMT members, a new course for the repair of rotating machines to international standards is being prepared for the end of the year. The course will go through the guidelines of the rewritten International Standard IEC 60034-23, expected to be published early next year. The course is currently being revised and updated by Dr. Martin Killeen, ready for the first course due to take place at the end of this year, or early next year.

Those who would benefit from the course can join a significant number of companies becoming new members.

The comprehensive re-write of the international repair, overhaul and reclamation of rotating electrical machinery standard – 60034-23 has included content from the AEMT/EASA Good Practice Guide and many other reference documents, to ensure that repairs maintain their rated energy efficiency after repair. The standard is in the final stages of maintenance and is expected to be published in 2018.

The course, will very much be focused around this new standard, and look at the issues that were raised by the AEMT/EASA Effect of Repair/Rewinding on Motor Efficiency project.

The course will be aimed at repair shop management and personnel and identifies the repair processes which ensure that the rated efficiency of a machine can be maintained. It will also outline in simple terms the recommended tests and methods during each process.

Topics covered will include repair or replacing equipment: environmental issues including maintaining efficiency during the repair and rewind process; recording machine details; dismantling the equipment; removing old windings; cleaning stator cores; choosing a replacement winding; rewinding a stator; impregnation; re-assembly; and testing.

To register your interest in the course, please contact AEMT on or call 01904 674899.

The Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT) was founded in 1945. It is an International Association representing leading companies in the electrical and mechanical service and repair industry. Members manufacture, distribute, install, service, maintain, and repair, electric motors, drives, pumps, fans, gearboxes, generators, transformers, switchgear, and ancillary equipment. In addition to motor and pump service facilities, most members operate mechanical engineering workshops for metal fabrication and the repair and refurbishment of worn components. Others include panel building facilities and some carry out repairs to industrial electronic equipment. Associate Members are companies that supply products and services to Members.

Proceeding the publication of AEMT's and BEAMA's jointly produced first code of practice for The Repair and Overhaul of Electrical Equipment for use in Potentially Explosive Atmospheres, which was adopted as the initial IEC 60079-19 international standard. The association has put together a selection of Training modules covering the Theory and Practical nature to ATEX and IECEx equipment repair. The modules are delivered as accredited training courses by expert teams across the globe.
