SYNOPSIS: IPS Cleveland is one of many IPS North American Service Centers offering local, regional and national coverage, all backed by a single Quality Management System, Health Safety & Environmental program, Continuous Improvement culture and Customer Service that offers an Unmatched Customer Experience (UCE).


IPS Cleveland provides service for:

  • industrial AC & DC electric motors, generators and
  • mechanical power transmission equipment such as gearboxes, pumps, fans, compressors, shafts.


Electric motors are used in all areas of our everyday lives.  They can be found in automobiles, trains, factories, power plants, and even in your own home.  Each motor is designed for a specific purpose, such as running a fan, pump, or drive train.  IPS North American service centers handle all industrial AC & DC electric motor and generator repairs — everything from small, fractional HP, low-voltage units (<690V) to assets weighing 145 tons and rated to 15kV.


PRESENTATION: This presentation covers motor construction topics that include:

  1. understanding motor nameplate information,
  2. winding insulation systems,
  3. stator core manufacturing techniques,
  4. processing procedures.
  5. Q&A
