Machine Shop Capabilities
CNC MillOn a recent Friday afternoon, we got an emergency call to machine a large number of parts for a local plant. The parts were needed early the following week so that they could start up a new production line.  4 of our machinists worked through the weekend and we met their schedule.
TigerTek is the perfect choice for high precision parts and we're happy to quote large, or small production quantities.
We have the necessary lathes and mills to provide fast turn-around-times, and cost-saving prices.
Please give us a call and we'll send a salesman over to quote your requirements. Call 336.623.1717.
Ask Darryl
What is motor efficiency & why is it so important?

Darryl OakleyIn layman terms you can think of efficiency as how much energy is lost inside the motor as power is converted from the electricity going in on the input side, to the motor generating mechanical work on it's output side. So if a motor is 95% efficient, you've lost about 5% of your available energy, primarily to heat loss. If your plant has inefficient motors, you are wasting a ton of money! For example: A 100HP motor, running continuously, will cost you an extra $430/year for every 1% of efficiency loss! In fact, the US Government recognized this waste and passed their EPACT legislation (Energy Policy Act 1992) to require that all new motors meet minimum efficiency standards.
But what about repaired motors?
800hp MotorIn a nutshell, if you repair the motor using proper equipment and procedures, you will see NO efficiency loss. This includes proper burn-out procedures, core-loss testing the stator, and using quality copper wire and insulation materials.
If you are using a motor repair shop that is not properly equipped, or if they do fast burn-outs, then you might be saving a few dollars on the initial repair, but you are losing your shirt with higher energy costs!
These findings are documented in an EASA/AEMT rewind study - please let me know if you would like to receive a copy.
