The Turn of the Frequency Drive

The night outside was damp and wet but inside the furnaces were burning keeping the room at a sweltering heat. A night crew worked lonesomely to install a frequency drive. As the rest of the foundry grumbled and groaned drowning out the outside world. The install finished in the dead of night. It was time to put their efforts to the test. As the motor warmed up it started to hum. The machine raddled and clanked, its seams were tested to the point of tearing before the motor gave its last-ditch efforts and burst. Silent went the chamber and all of the men. Slowly heads started to rise to their surprise they had survived and though they all turned out okay the equipment would not see another day.

 

The Missing Body

Unhappy a sight to see, a pair of feet, bolted with no adjoining body. A call to GK would be placed to investigate the cause and case. Not long did it take for GK to find this mistake.  A bearing had not been placed correctly in this case. The bolts and bits began to break leaving feet in its wake. So the lesson you will take, care in the maintenance you will make.

Torn Asunder

Doomed from birth was this motor. Engineered to process the smooth and pleasant but sentenced to a life of abrasion and deterioration. Not long did it take to see effects this difference would make. Not long before the base did break, GK was called to assess an adversary’s fatal mistake. And low none were left to wonder how the motor had been torn asunder.
