No business wants to suffer loss of productivity from a faulty motor, especially if it means several days downtime.
Follow these simple practices to help improve your servo motor uptime & avoid any nightmare scenarios from damaged or faulty automation equipment.

Keep within the recommended capacity for your machine
Going over the recommended capacity for your servo is a surefire way to cause overheating, strain on your components & potential damage to your whole machine. Never overload your motor and you will always enjoy servo motor up-time.
Keep heat sinks & air intakes clean & clear
If your machine equipment & servo motors are kept clean you should always have a reliable, fully working machine. To increase your servo’s up-time check the internal, external, chiller & circulation fans. Be sure that your fans & filters have clear airflow & are not clogged with any dust or debris.
Heat sinks that become clogged are a common failure point. Since their job is to prevent overheating it is essential that you make regular checks to maintain up-time.
Replace components before they fail
Preventative maintenance is possibly method to maintain servo motor up-time. If you make repairs & fixes before something becomes a problem it generally keeps things running smoothly in the long-run.
Contact your local repair company to schedule a health check of your servo & other automation machines. Finding areas that need repairing or replacing early is the key to maintaining quality up-time.
