Progress Rail Services Corp.: Rebuilt Components - EMD OEM Traction Motors

Progress Rail Services Corp.

EMD traction motors are rebuilt to OEM specifications and benefit from the latest OEM upgrades and improvements — featuring the quality and reliability necessary to maximize traction motor operating efficiency. Operating failures are significantly reduced, decreasing maintenance time and increasing locomotive availability, the company says, adding that PE and CE bearings and flash rings extend traction motor life. High strength banding maximizes coil retention. vented coil supports provide superior cooling performance, improved, proprietary insulating materials increase ground protection safety margins, arc-resistant bands resist tracking, and redesigned, potted stator coils ensure stability and commutation, the company says. EMD also offers rebuild work scopes tailored to customer requirements and custom conversion packages that minimize maintenance.
