Common FANUC motor failures
The top eight common reasons for Fanuc Motor Failures.
|Electrical||Over time components break down. Therefore broken or faulty connections, short wiring etc. can be an issue.|
|Electronic||Encoder faults, memory battery failure, faulty components on the PCB. Liquid ingression due to coolants, oil, fluids and waters.|
|Moisture and Dirt||Contamination from oil and fluid can affect the bearings, the encoder, the electrics of the motor. Also the integrity of the windings. Moisture can cause component deterioration through rust.|
|Mechanical Faults||Out of balance rotors, shaft keyway or coupling failure and motor brake wear. All of these are causes of mechanical faults.|
|Improper Installation||If the belt is too tight or the positioning if off this can cause the motor to break down.|
|Bad Drive or Power Supply||A bad drive or power supply can cause a spike in voltage. As can introducing too high a current to a motor through human error. All this will cause damage to the drive.|
|Lack of Maintenance||Proper maintenance and applying a preventative maintenance plan can extend the lifespan of both components and the motor.|
|Overwork||Like everything in life the more it is overworked the shorter the lifespan!|
