Electric motors for generators. The power of Kolmer

When we refer to an electric generator, we refer to the generation of electrical energy. In many cases this is achieved by connecting a diesel engine to a generator. The electric motor in the generator will generate electrical energy that can be used. A disadvantage of this particular method, however, is that a diesel engine is very noisy and cannot be used everywhere.

For a smaller form of energy generation we can make use of a small wind generator. The operation of the generator will then be based on the permanent movement of a magnet. The movement of a magnet within a coil generates energy as is the case with a dynamo on a bicycle wheel. The development of the wind generator required many tests. The wind power and energy generation are in line with each other with the result that the generator still generates energy even if there is little wind.

Global application

Kolmer Electric Motors is the right place to go to for an electric motor for a generator. The wind generator can be built into a 10′ container and then easily shipped all over the world. Imagine disaster areas where every form of electricity has disappeared. The container can be on site quickly and after a few simple operations electricity is, again, available.

The permanent magnet generator is the opposite of a permanent magnet motor. The magnet movement within a coil generates electricity. For a permanent magnet generator it’s the other way round. When the shaft of the motor is driven by a windmill, energy can be taken from the terminals. This form of energy generation is applied worldwide.

Kolmer Top Coating

An engine that does not flake and does not rust, that is our goal when we start an extensive research project in 2016. We develop a coating that does hold and the test results exceed all expectations. Engines keep looking great year after year, no matter the conditions. TNO is testing the safety and we are now fully in production. Kolmer Top Coating anchors itself through the paint layer in the underlying aluminum and cast iron. A water-thin, super strong layer that protects for years and can be used on all our Cantoni and a selection of EMF and Cemp engines.
