AC Motors

CovElec provides a wide range of AC motors for same-day delivery and also offers electric motor repairs within 24 hours. When an AC motor breaks down it inevitably results in unplanned downtime.

CovElec’s aim is to get you back up and running as quickly as possible. The fastest option might be achieved with motor replacement or, depending on the AC motor specification and breakdown fault, motor repair might be the quicker option.

CovElec can collect your AC motor to provide a rapid assessment and will then provide a repair or replacement, usually within 24 hours.

DC Motors

Providing high torque performance at low speed, DC motors are frequently used across applications such as paper and steel mills, as well as coilers, winders and lifting mechanisms. CovElec is able to support your application by providing new replacement DC motors, as well as providing a rapid DC motor repair service.


As DC motor applications are often integral to operational productivity, it can be critical to minimise the downtime. Depending on the specification of your DC motor, the faster option to get your application back up and running might be repair rather than replace.


CovElec will collect your DC motor to provide a rapid assessment and will then support a repair or replacement.

Servo Motors

Speed of repair is key

With servo motors typically used in precision manufacturing, down time means high cost. If a servo motor develops a fault, it’s vital that a repair is made as rapidly as possible. A fast return to service must be combined with a guarantee of a highly proficient repair that provides lasting, high performance motion control.


From printing and packaging to electronic device production, servo motors are a crucial component for manufacturing processes. Downtime means cost through reduced production, the potential of missed deadlines and reputational damage. For these reasons, if a servo motor develops a fault, it’s imperative that it’s repaired and recommissioned as soon as possible. A servo motor is capable of exacting precision at high speed, so it’s vital that any repair returns it to the same performance levels as when specified from new.

When the servo motor arrives at CovElec, the first task is diagnosis. From this point the fault is established and, in most cases, the workshop will confirm that the motor can be repaired and returned within 24 hours.

Electric motor repairs

Motor rewinds allow operators to avoid the time or cost disadvantages associated with sourcing a new motor. During breakdown situations, CovElec provides its customers with a reactive maintenance support framework. In many cases, motors can be back on-site and running within 24 hours of the initial failure. CovElec can also ensure that motors operating in redundancy can be rewound as part of a structured maintenance plan to minimise downtime.


CovElec employs a team of in-house motor rewind experts. Offering extensive experience in the art of rewinds, this team of specialists can carry out work of exceptional quality within reduced timeframes. With this experience and state-of-the-art winding machines, CovElec can complete an average rewind within 8-10 hours. Motors of almost any age and configuration can be serviced by the rewinds team.

Quality at the Core

Quality is at the forefront of all rewinds. Core loss testing is available in-house to prove the performance of rewound motors, while specialists assess noise and vibrations to ensure assets are ready to re-enter service.


CovElec has a proven track record carrying out quality rewinds for businesses in the industrial, commercial, water, food & beverage sectors. This means that CovElec has the experience to deliver motor rewinds quickly, while never sacrificing quality.
