Rotating Machinery Industry

The term “rotating machine” can be applied to any device that rotates, either driving or being driven.

This is a very broad definition that includes both “driving” machines, which provide mechanical energy (electric motors, combustion engines, etc.) and “generators”, such as turbines, that transform mechanical energy into another form of energy (kinetic, electric, etc.).

Generally, this term is employed only in reference to machines where one of the two forms of energy is electricity (e.g., motors and generators). These families include a wide variety of machines that are often encountered in industry, ranging from drone micro motors to electric power plant alternators.

Given their complexity, only specialists have a comprehensive understanding of their specificities.

Our loss adjusters are experts in all aspects of their construction, implementation, and operation.
