How it Works

With both motor retrofitting and replacement, the end game is always the same; improved performance with greater levels of efficiency. With the right motor the Alpha Electrics team can prevent machines tripping out or overheating, and achieve better levels of compliance to environmental guidelines. 

Inspection & quotation:

A typical project begins with a survey of your machine and obsolete motor. If a replacement is feasible this can be sourced and fitted to your machine. Should a replacement not be available our team can recommend and schedule in a retrofit for your motor.

Retrofitting & installation:

Once we have established either a retrofit or replacement, Alpha Electrics will source your motor and schedule in time for an installation.


Whether it's a replacement or a retrofit, our work comes with a full 1-year warranty and a suggested maintenance schedule is designed to help you prevent any emerging problems. 

High quality and accredited service:

Our engineers have over 20 years of experience customising, refurbishing, replacing and retrofitting machines with electric motors for a variety of industrial businesses. Some of the brands we have customised include:

Retrofitting is greater efficiency all round:

Alpha can take obsolete motors (in this case a motor that has been discontinued) and replace it with a different model, modifying it to allow the new motor to be compatible with your old machine. Retrofitting new motors in place of obsolete models is a great way to improve an industrial work-line without the large overhead of a new machine.

An example in action is when we worked with DS Smiths Packaging, an industrial packaging business that commissioned Alpha Electrics to extend the capabilities of all of their existing machines. We replaced many of their DC motors for AC motors with inverters which has multiplied across the business operations considerably improved their energy efficiency, performance, longevity and boosted financial efficiency & ROI.

Warranty on your newly replaced or retrofitted electric motor:

Our 1-year warranty on all motor replacements guarantees the work we carry out. In the unlikely event of a fault relating to our repairs, our team will arrange a return visit to review and resolve any issue immediately.
