Introduction To Dreisilker
Expert Machine Tool Motor Services: Uptime Drives Productivity.
In the fast-paced world of the machine tool industry, there is one thing everyone fears — downtime. And when your machine is down because of a bad motor, you don’t want to spend time searching for a repair facility that you hope will get you back up again. Choose the one with a long reputation of successful service to the machine tool industry: Dreisilker.
Expert Machine Tool Motor Services
Motor-Safe™ Repair: Saving energy while reducing downtime and extending the
life of your electric motor are valuable benefits of our exclusive
Motor-Safe™ Repair process. That’s why industrial and commercial
customers have trusted Dreisilker to properly repair their critical
motors for over 50 years. Stripping Without Damaging:
Dreisilker uses our distinctive
Motor-Safe Stripping process
in which a technician carefully
removes the original windings using
a controlled “warming” method and
hydraulic device. This
technique pulls the softened windings
from the stator without damaging the
stator, avoiding the extreme, uneven
temperatures of burnout ovens which
distort the core and laminations.

Reliability Services: As the clock ticks
away, the single
value of reliability
in your operation is
to maximize uptime.
When you can count on
your machines running without
interruption you can plan on
productivity and profitability.
But the cost of unplanned
downtime can be measured in idle
workers, missed deadlines and
disappointed customers. These all
translate into losses that impact
your bottom line.
So what is a predictive and
preventive maintenance program
really worth to your operation’s
Dreisilker Line Card: A quick reference guide to our complete electric motor solutions to commercial, industrial and municipal customers. We distribute new electric motors, parts, accessories and controls from major OEMs, as well as maintain motors with expert field service. We specialize in Motor-Safe™ Repair methods using non-burnout stripping, accurate and precise rewinding, advanced varnishing, dynamic balancing, and thorough testing. Our repairs and service improve motor reliability and increase uptime.
Yaskawa Drives: Significant Cost Savings Using HVAC Drives For Buildings. Energy usage in a typical office
building costs the owner between
$1 and $3 per square foot. The
air handling systems account for
around 28% and the cooling
systems for about 24% of the
electricity consumed. That’s
roughly half of your electric bill.
You have the means of reducing
air handling and cooling energy
costs by 20%.
For a 100,000 sq. ft. building,
total savings can range from
$10,000 to $30,000 every year.
The key to savings on this scale
is the judicious use of variable
frequency drives (VFD). Dreisilker is an authorized distributor of Yaskawa VFDs with the expertise to fit the right system to your application.
