Seminar content
One of the most important factors to consider when repairing motors is to understand why they failed. This seminar will focus on common as well as unusual types of failures broken down by components.

EASA Root Cause Failure Analysis - 2nd Ed.This seminar is intended for anyone interested in understanding motor failures, and those who want to serve customers by addressing the cause of failure rather than the symptom. An extensive resource manual includes hundreds of photos of a wide range of failures, with the likely causes listed, and a clear methodology for confirming the probable cause of each failure. Each student will also receive a CD-ROM containing a PDF version of the manual with almost all photographs in color.

Seminar highlights

  • Root cause methodology
  • Bearing failures
  • Winding failures
  • Rotor failures
  • Shaft failures
  • Mechanical failures
  • DC motor failures
  • Accessory failures
  • Case studies

To reap the full benefit of the Root Cause Failure Analysis seminar, attendees should have basic knowledge of electric motors either through experience or from attending EASA’s Principles of Medium & Large AC Motors seminar.

    • Once you have connected with the hotel operator, your reservation will be verified to insure that you are staying at the D/FW Airport Marriott SOUTH property.  This procedure is in place to insure that you will be shuttled to the correct hotel location. (Please note: There is also a Marriott at the North end of the airport).

    • It is imperative that all guests call the hotel to request to be picked up.  There is not a regular shuttle that passes by on a schedule.  If you prefer to contact the hotel directly on your mobile phone and by-pass going to the baggage claim area, you may call 817-358-1700.

    • The shuttle to the D/FW International Airport departs from the hotel every ½ hour.  Please go to the bellstand or see the front desk associate to let them know you wish to go to the airport.
