WEG Motors, one of the WEG Group Business Divisions that manufactures motors and gearboxes, has recently been requalified by CSA Group Testing and Certification Inc. as a Testing Facility for electric motors.

Within its Certification Program, CSA has granted WEG the certificate for Qualification of Test Laboratories, which qualifies the company to perform its own electric motor tests, including tests for explosive atmospheres, aiming at safety and energy efficiency, in line with the standards applicable in several markets. WEG has had this accreditation for over 25 years, which proves a long-standing partnership. 

The CSA (Canadian Standards Association) Group is a global organization dedicated to safety, social assistance and sustainability. It is a leader in standards development and testing, inspection and certification worldwide, including Asia, Europe, Canada and the US, where the company also has accreditation from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), allowing certification of equipment for the North American market. 

As a result, there is a benefit on the certification process for the Canadian and US markets, which are widely served by WEG through its subsidiaries and distributors since the certification allows WEG to supply electric motors tested in Brazil, where WEG is headquartered, mainly to customers from the USA territory, with certification time savings and shorter delivery times. 

By searching for solid partnerships and global certifications, WEG demonstrates its commitment to the most demanding international requirements and offers to the global market different high performance, innovative and technological solutions for industrial processes.


Allied Motor MaintenanceSmall motors – both AC and DC – serve as critical points in industrial operations. They may be integral to automation and equipment control and serve multiple purposes to mechanically drive and actuate systems and equipment, but are often replaced rather than repaired or reconditioned.

Larger motors may be repaired, rewound, and sent into a motor rewind pool.  However, many motors will simply be replaced when imminent signs of failure are detected using smart equipment, instrumentation, and tools discussed below.
