The Electrical Apparatus Service Association (EASA) announces its Spring 2018 educational seminar schedule. Attendance at EASA seminars is open to members and non-members. Seminars available are:
• Mechanical Repair Fundamentals of Electric Motors, 2nd Edition – April 13-14, 2018 in Charlotte, NC. The seminar addresses the basic mechanical aspects of motor repair. The latest edition expands the content of the original seminar by more than 50%. Discussion will cover basic materials and their characteristics, the loading and stresses involved, the most common failure modes and patterns, along with recommended repair practices. The seminar will benefit supervisors, mechanics and machinists, and anyone involved in the repair decision-making process.
• Root Cause Failure Analysis – April 27-28, 2018 in St. Louis, MO. One of the most important factors to consider is why a motor failed. This seminar explores the cause of motor failures from the most common to the unusual. A methodology for identifying the most probable cause of failure is presented. The seminar is recommended for owners, managers, supervisors, salespeople and technicians.
• Fundamentals of DC Operation and Repair Tips – May 4-5, 2018 in Tulsa, OK. The seminar will cover DC machine theory and operation, as well as repair tips. Topics will include testing and winding of armatures, fields, interpoles and compensating windings, machine work, balancing, assembly and final testing. The theory portion is structured so that it can be grasped by entry-level personnel, while the overall material is in-depth enough that those with 30 years of experience or more will benefit.
