Replacements & Upgrades

Genuine Ideal Replacements

IDEAL machines are built strong. We take great pride in knowing that our Ohio Works manufactures the best machines on the market. Unfortunately, no machine lasts forever, and though IDEAL machines have a longer than average useful life, they’re no exception to this rule. With that in mind, we keep all original microfilms and drawings for every IDEAL machine. So, when the time comes to replace an IDEAL machine, we can do so with unrivaled speed and precision.



We didn’t have to build your machine to know how to replace it. After all, IDEAL ELECTRIC knows machines better than anyone in the industry. Our talented engineers use this knowledge to help replace legacy machines with higher-efficiency, rugged IDEAL models that are built to last. We certify that our replacements will fit perfectly into your existing setup – easily providing the dependable IDEAL functionality that you desire in place of your older, worn-out machine. IDEAL ELECTRIC is capable of replacing any brand of machine. Contact us to begin constructing your fit and function replacement machine.

Ideal has replaced the following brands

General Electric | Electric Products | Louis-Allis | Baldor Electric | Century Electric | Elliott Company | Allis-Chalmers | GE Canada | International Electric Corporation | Baylor | Westinghouse | Newage | Many More



IDEAL excels at drop-in replacements. For example, the adjacent slider depicts a fit and function wound-rotor induction motor drop-in replacement developed by our skilled team. Our engineers worked to redesign this decades-old Electric Products wound-rotor motor to address multiple issues the machine had. After updating the design and building a replacement, we stringently tested the machine to ensure it was up to our IDEAL expectations. Our client was able to provide input and watch throughout the testing procedure via IDEAL’s new Virtual Witness Platform – an audiovisual tool built to help us stay connected remotely.
