Frequently Asked Questions
Can you repair a field coil?
Yes of course but it depends on the type of field coil. If the coil is wound with sectional wire or is a one-off, requiring a complex former to wind, it can be more cost effective to recondition the coil. Usually however it isn't cost effective repairing a field coil and experience has proven that winding a field coil is much more efficient.
We recondition a field coil by burning off and removing all the old insulation. The field coil is then shot blasted and annealed before being re-insulated. If the wire has a break in it we will repair with brazing techniques.
Can you wind any field coil?
With our winding machines we can wind coils up to 1 metre in length and we manufacture coil formers in our well-equipped machine shop.
If the coil required is wound with sectional copper or is a 'one-off' it may need sourcing which may take a little time.
