Servo Repair Services
Servo motors and drives are crucial components for keeping your industrial equipment humming along and doing its job. But what happens when you have a problem with your servo drive or motor? Sure you could pay to replace it, OR you can partner with the AES team of trained experts to provide you with effective servo testing, repair, & rebuilding services for less!
Our Offerings in Servo Repairs
Servo drives are essential components for keeping many industrial equipment applications humming along and providing the results you need for your business. But what happens when there’s a problem with your servo drive? Sure, you could simply replace it, but that really might not be your best option. Partner with the AES team of trained experts and receive effective servo testing, repair, & rebuilding for less!
Servo motors are a widely-used source of controlled, reliable mechanical power for a wide range of specialized industrial and commercial applications. But if your servo motor stops rotating, your machinery and devices stop working. Why replace it, when skilled service & repair can be a much better option?

Some Common Causes for Servo Motor Problems
If you use servo motors frequently, it’s a good idea to be familiar with common problems that can arise. Learning more about how a servo works (and how it can malfunction) will help you with diagnosing issues. You’ll also have a better idea of when to seek out professional repair or service.
Improper Installation: Sometimes mistakes occur during the installation of your servo motor or drive, and this can lead to problems. For example, a belt that’s too tight or improperly placed can greatly diminish servo performance.
Damaged Cables: If a cable becomes damaged, that can certainly lead to a servo motor breakdown. Damaged cables are relatively common, and they can also produce some motor-damaging voltage spikes.
Intrusion of Contaminants: Your servo is a sensitive machine, so any intrusion of contaminants like dirt, oil, cutting fluid, or coolant can cause damage to internal components like bearings, windings, and electrical components.
Overloaded or Overworked Motor: Your servo motor is likely to become damaged if it’s overloaded or overworked. You can help prevent this by ensuring appropriately-sized loads and making sure to give your motor enough needed downtime.
Bearing Failures: One of the most common sources of problems with servos are faulty bearings. If you hear screeching or whining, replace those bearings! Otherwise, you can end up with total servo motor failure.
Brake Dust Buildup: A high-pitched squeal can indicate dusty brakes in your servo motor. Brake dust can spread internally and compromise other important systems. Regular servo maintenance can help to prevent these issues.
Mechanical Binding or Circuit Overloads: Mechanical binding and/or circuit overloads can make your servo motor run hot. If you suspect that your motor is running hot, get it checked out right away to avoid permanent damage.
Faulty Power Supply or Drive: Sometimes a servo can have an inadequate power supply or a bad drive. The motor itself may be fine, but the failures of these items could cause the system to malfunction.
Positioning Errors: A positioning error can also cause problems for your servo motor, resulting in some buzzing or “chatter.” A proactive positioning adjustment can prevent a lot of headaches down the road!
Improper Setup or Parameter Issues: Setup issues and parameter losses can cause similar chattering issues to positioning errors. Check for this by running through the motor/drive setup procedures. If that doesn’t fix it, seek professional service.
Winding Issues: Problems with a servo’s winding can also make the motor run hot and result in damage. Whether caused by contamination or by an internal short, the winding should receive prompt service.
Electrical Failures: Capacitors, diodes, resistors, resolvers, encoders, and similar electrical components all wear out eventually. As these electronic items degrade, your motor’s performance will also become compromised and require some TLC.
Neglected Servo Maintenance: Neglecting to have your servo motor serviced regularly can result in many of the above-mentioned problems. Scheduling basic servo motor maintenance can help you avoid many more costly repairs.
Expert Servo Electrical and Mechanical Repair from AES
A servo system includes several integrated components, but the two most prominent are the servo drive and the servo motor. Essentially, the servo drive translates incoming command signals into voltage and current needed to power the servo motor. If either component isn’t functioning properly, then the system will have performance issues.
Servo Motor: Servo motors are a kind of electric motor controlled for specific angular rotation. They’re used in closed-loop mechanisms for a variety of purposes. AC and DC motors are some of the most well-known servo motors used regularly in a wide range of smaller-scale devices, but servo motors also have many essential industrial applications. In a larger industrial or commercial setting, it’s important for a servo motor to possess critical positioning and speed sensing capabilities.
How are your servo motors performing for you in your mission-critical business or organizational applications? Have you had a servo motor breakdown? Or does your servo motor need optimizing for maximum performance? AES can take care of you!
Servo Drive: A servo drive could be described as an amplifier of sorts. It receives control signals from a controller, and then escalates the signal to deliver whatever voltage and current are needed for the servo motor to be able to achieve the needed outcome. In terms of industrial and commercial applications, servo drives are utilized for everything from machining, to automation, to robotics and more. Without a properly functioning servo drive, your servo motor could be rendered practically useless.
Is your current servo system broken down or underperforming? It’s possible that your servo motor is actually fine, but your servo drive needs some attention. The expert team at AES is more than capable of getting your servo drive back online!
