Proper handling with electric motor transport January 9, 2017

Much is said about the proper transportation of electric motors. Some professionals say that the electric motor is prepared for heavy work and in a hostile environment and therefore there would be no need for special care during transportation. Others say that shipping should be extremely careful as they are precision components.

In most cases the transport of electric motors does not need to be extremely sophisticated with special packaging and materials, but it can not be transported in any way that can be thrown or be carried loose in the means of transport.


The biggest problem for the electric motor is in precision components such as bearings that will be subject to vibrations during transportation and can be severely damaged and unusable. Movements under cyclic vibrations occur in the contact areas between the rolling elements (balls or rollers) and the bearing tracks. Depending on the vibration intensity, lubrication condition and load, a combination of corrosion and wear occurs forming depressions in the bearing tracks. In the transport of the electric motor this can be caused when the shaft is transported loose and can move freely.
