Pneu Laurent, a Michelin group subsidiary specialized in the retreading of heavy trucks and civil engineering tires, suffers a major failure on a Siemens 1FK6 axis motor. As the production of our customer is stopped, Pneu Laurent asks us to repair the product in emergency.
Following the DV GROUP experts’ diagnosis, we notice too much damage on the rotor to repair it (magnets being uncoupled from the axis). In order to allow Pneu Laurent to restart production as soon as possible, we propose to our customer to use a motor from our refurbished products stock and to transform it so that it is identical to their motor.
In this way, we replace the connector and the encoder and immediately deliver the motor to our customer who restarts production successfully, which means less than 24 hours after their first call.
