Fanuc Servo Motor Repair
Every Fanuc servo motor that is refurbished at our facility goes through an extensive evaluation. We find the reason your Fanuc servo motor is failing and confirm we can repair your motor – and bring it back to the condition it was brand new from the factory. During the evaluation, we look for any dynamic or static parts that do not meet Fanuc specifications.
Servotech maintains a good working relationship with the Fanuc factory and has original technical data sheets so we can obtain finite specifications needed in the repair of your Fanuc servo motor. Without this information, a motor can only be repaired to “running” condition. Using this data, we ensure your servo motor will perform to its factory specifications in your machine.
Our goal is to give you a servo motor that is not only repaired, but has been refurbished back to as like new condition. Our Fanuc servo motor repair procedure follows these steps:
1. Evaluation of Your Fanuc Servo Motor
Servotech inspects all electrical and mechanical parts on all Fanuc servo motors, checking bearing and housing fits, worn output shafts and corroded and/or broken flanges.
- Bearing fits
- Housing fits
- Worn output shafts
- Corroded and/or broken flanges

2. Servo Motor Repair
We repair any problems found during our evaluation, fixing any part that does not meet the factory specifications. Often we:
- Remagnetize rotor magnets.
- Re-manufacture a new Fanuc servo motor front flange using the old flange and factory dimensions.
- Repair all the windings. Both AC and DC servomotors windings are washed, baked and tested.
- Repair or replace brush holders and Bake-O-Lite insulation tubes on DC motors.

3. Preliminary Testing
Throughout the assembly process each Fanuc servomotor repair will be meggered numerous times. Some of our tests include:
- Test to confirm there are no grounded electrical parts in the servomotor.
- All AC stators are surge tested to at least 1500 volts.
- After the backing process DC servo motor armatures go through a bar to bar test. This test will show if there are any shorts or opens in the winding.
- Servo motor alignment.
4. Fanuc Motor Assembly
Our Fanuc servo motor repair and assembly processes often improves a motor’s internal components, utilizing:
- High-grade sealed bearings – we feel that each Fanuc servo motor repair will have a longer life with sealed bearings, because the seals keep dirt and contamination from getting into the bearing races.
- Double lip seals in the front flange – these seals keep coolant from getting to the bearing.
- All new seals, O-rings, gaskets and connectors – ensure that your Fanuc servo motor is protected from liquid contamination.
- Two-part epoxy coating for an added protection – the same coating used on Navy submarines.

5. Final Testing on Fanuc Drives
The final step in the Fanuc servo motor repair process is to run your motor on a Fanuc drive just like the one in your machine. We confirm the servo motor repair process were done correctly, and allows us to run your Fanuc servo motor at full voltages and full currents of the motors capability. We are constantly buying new drives in order to stay up to date with the manufacturer’s changes.
6. Name Plating
Before shipping, Servotech makes all new name plates for each of our servomotor repairs. These new name plates include all the original data from the motor, as well as Servotech’s name, job number, and date codes. This gives customers traceability in regards to their servo motor repair.
