Everything You Need to Know About Replacement Electric Motors
Written by Aishwarya Gaikwad

Freight elevators can’t operate without an electric motor. In the past, it was difficult to get ahold of a replacement electric motor without buying large quantities in bulk. This forced you to spend more money and stock up on motors that you don’t actually need. Fortunately, technological advancements have made it possible for manufacturers like ARC Systems to sell single units and small quantities of elevator replacement motors. No more spending money on excess motors–you’ll get exactly what you need. Here’s everything you need to know about replacement motors for freight elevators.

What Is A Freight Elevator?

A freight elevator is an elevator that transports goods through a multi-story building. You can ride in the elevator along with the freight, but most people load the freight in the elevator and transport it with no accompaniment. Freight elevators are commonly found in malls, warehouses, supply facilities and other businesses that transport a lot of goods.

In a house, a freight elevator is called a dumbwaiter. Dumbwaiters are increasingly rare, but some old houses still have working dumbwaiters that transport food and other goods between floors. Traditional freight elevators operated with a pulley system. Today, many freight elevators use electric motors and other technological advancements. They can’t operate without their motor, so when the motor breaks, you need precision-engineered replacement electric motors as soon as possible.

How Is It Possible To Manufacture Single Motors?

Before advancements in 3D printing, it took companies weeks of effort and thousands of dollars to produce a single gate elevator replacement motor. As a result, these businesses couldn’t make a profit by selling one motor at a time. They forced companies to buy large quantities at once so they could recoup their time and investment into the project. This was understandable, but it still created a hassle for people who needed replacement electric motors for high-performance applications.

Luckily, new technology like 3D printing and CNC machines has made it much cheaper and easier to produce freight elevator replacement motors. This also makes it easier for customers to buy motors directly from the United States instead of outsourcing to other countries. At ARC Systems, we carry a stock of freight elevator motors that replace the major types of motors. Simply browse our selection, place an order and wait for your motor to arrive.

What About Replacement Electric Motors Made To Special Requirements?

Laser printing and 3D printing also make it possible to build replacement motors exactly to your specifications. If your motor is a little unusual and you’re having trouble finding the perfect replacement, talk to ARC Systems about building a custom motor. We’ve built motors for garages, hotels, warehouses, real estate and other major businesses, so we have a lot of experience in the industry.

Couldn’t You Just Buy A Discount Motor?

Now that it’s cheaper than ever to buy replacement motors, you might have wondered if you can just buy a cheap motor and be done with it. However, there’s a difference between a bargain motor made from cheap materials and a high-quality motor made with some of the world’s most advanced 3D printers. A poor freight motor won’t last long–and in a worst-case scenario, it could cause a workplace accident.

When you need to get custom engineered replacement electric motors, contact ARC Systems to see what we can do for you. We sell custom motors as well as premade motors that replace most of the major models. If you have specific needs, we can build motors that are waterproof, fireproof, explosion-proof and suitable for full water submersion.

What About Obsolete Motors?

Since we can make custom motors, we also craft obsolete motors that manufacturers don’t produce anymore. Contact us today to see what we can do for your business.
