Steel & Other Metals


Specific Solutions Built Around Steel & Other Metals’ Unique Needs


HECO is currently doing everything from repairing drive motors to vibration analysis to performing PdM on all rotating equipment for steel mills across the United States.

These steel mills choose HECO because they know we understand the challenges of electric motor repair in the steel industry. Electric motors in steel mills face some of the harshest environments imaginable, and unexpected failure can cost mills tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars or more in downtime.

At HECO, we strive to reduce your downtime by:

  • Providing quality repairs
  • Supplying you with the correct electric motor for your application
  • Ensuring that spares are functional and readily available

Our approach to managing complete electric motor driven powertrains has been proven at some of the largest steel mills in the country and with some of the largest electric motors.
