How do I replace an obsolete pneumatic motor?

Motor maintenance Motor why modec ?

Do you have a pneumatic motor that you use for a specific application? Does this engine perform its task perfectly and you’re totally satisfied with its performance? Yes, but the problem is that today this motor has just quit working…

Maybe you purchased it (perhaps with the machine) a long time ago, and you don’t know if it’s even still on the market! 

 You went to the distributor, and in fact the model in question is no longer manufactured.

Newer motors aren’t necessarily compatible with your application (the size, flange, output and performance).  So now what? Do you get all new machines or implement the complex adaptations? This solution would be far too expensive, especially if you only want to change one pneumatic motor for a single use!

At Modec, we understand your problem perfectly, for the simple fact that we have to solve these types of requests on a regular basis!
