The right electric motor for the construction industry

What do construction and electric motors have to do with one another? The answer is; everything! A construction site does not consist solely of bricks, concrete, hammers and roof tiles. No, if you look around carefully, you will soon see several electric motors in action. An electric concrete mixer cannot mix mortar and water neatly without the mixing drum being powered by an electric motor. The lift system to transport stones and materials is also operated by a button that sets an electric motor in motion. Are you looking for an electric motor for a construction hoist, concrete mixer with pump, building scaffolding or a goods hoist typical for the construction industry? At Kolmer Electric Motors we will gladly share our thoughts and ideas with you regarding the right electric motor for the construction industry.

More efficient, safer and more flexible

In recent years, major steps have been taken in the construction industry and the construction site has substantially changed in several aspects. Steps to make construction more efficient, safer and more flexible. For example, it is important that any material necessary is on site on time and that it is handled flexibly and efficiently. Another good example is scaffolding that can slowly move up or down the façade. So no more clambering over all kinds of steel scaffolding, but a safe construction hoist that ensures an ergonomic work style which allows construction workers to do their work at the ideal height. The electric motors used are equipped with a brake so that the scaffolding can be set to the ideal working height.

Electric motors used in the construction industry; sealed against moisture and dirt

The construction site is a wet, dusty and dirty place to work. This is why it is important that the electric motor for construction purposes can withstand such moisture and dirt. Proper sealing against moisture and dirt is of great importance as electric motors are often used outdoors. As a result, wind and weather can impact the corrosion process. In recent years and in consultation with various customers, Kolmer Electric Motors has developed and tested special types of seals. You are therefore assured of an electric motor for your industry that is sealed against moisture and dirt.
