We all know that stator cores should be burned at a controlled temperature to prevent lamination deterioration that can lead to harmful eddycurrent losses. But what about armatures? While that DC machine is energized by direct current, it is also true that the armature itself sees alternating current as the current in each coil reverses while passing from pole to pole. 

A temperature-controlled burnout oven permits us to cremate a stator without worry, but an armature is another story. Because the commutator is integral to the armature, and cannot be easily removed, some repairers resort to a hand-stripping operation. Careful use of a torch to warm the windings accelerates the stripping job, but controlling the core tempera­ture can be difficult. And stripping a large armature without heat is all but impossible by conventional methods.
