The ACS Troublemaker of the Week award goes to this Okuma BL-MC200J-12TB servo motor. The motor came out of a major U.S. East Coast heavy industrial manufacturing plant.
The motor quit while on the job, and, not surprisingly, upon evaluation we discovered it was heavily contaminated with oil. The is one of the most common causes of servo motor failure. Why? Because, even in the best motors, there are plenty of places for the motor to leak allowing liquids such as oil or coolants to intrude into areas where they do not belong.

A famous ocean-side candy shop chain came to ACS recently with a Combiscale circuit board that wasn’t working. That wouldn’t be so alarming if they weren’t facing the start of the beach-going season when they make the majority of their sales for the year. Virtually everyone who visits East Coast beaches will shop here – and that’s a lot of candy!
