Spline Repair of an Electric Motor Armature

Spline Repair of Armature A client who works in the electric motor industry approached Butler Gear Enterprises, LLC. to spline repair an armature. To complete the spline repair we removed the existing teeth and TIG welded the shaft with sufficient materials for machining. Then we re-turned and re-hobbed the spline to meet customer-supplied specifications. Finally, we sent the armature to a top heat-treatment specialist to heat-treat the spline end.

The 25 lbs armature, which measured 18.5" long and .983" in outside diameter, was welded with 4140 materials and repaired in just 2 weeks. Following inspection, it was shipped to the client's Milwaukee, Wisconsin location.
