We have a P26 Weinig Molder. Does anyone know where we can get a replacement motors other than Weining?
I doubt you will find anyone other than Weinig, since their motors are often in castings that only they can use. Yes, they are expensive.
If you have a motor gone bad, generally a good motor service company can rewind and add bearings to decent 3 phase equipment, and save money over buying a motor outright. If the spindle it damaged or bent, that requires other skills, but also can be repaired.
I use a couple of options for motors.
Non-brake motors I get new from motor shops. I have used one for many years as a machine repair technician. I also have collected many used motors have the years.
I have a few used brake motors on my shelves.
It is important to look at the frame size and motor dimensions to make sure of space restrictions
I will be glad to help you determine what options you have in your area for motor repair or replacement. If you have a brake motor with a pad, auto brake shops can sometimes reshoe them.
