The best electric motors for sustainability and innovation

The electric motor was designed many years ago and since then not much has changed. We, at Kolmer Electric Motors, have noticed that the demand for energy-efficient motors is continuously on the increase. In recent years, more emphasis has been placed on the energy consumption of drive system components. If we look at industry only, 70% of the energy generated is consumed by electric motors. In addition, European legislation on the subject of sustainability has been amended in recent years. New guidelines have been issued for the efficiency of electric motors. This and the fact that increasingly more users have become aware of achieving large energy savings, has resulted in a more critical look and action during the design phase of an installation.

Super premium efficiency motors

Verduurzaming, innovatie en nieuwe richtlijnen hebben geleid tot de IE4 klasse met super premium rendement motoren. IE4 is de hoogste rendementsklasse. Kolmer Elektromotoren heeft een ruime keuze in IE4 motoren. De kleinere PM motoren zijn mechanisch vergelijkbaar met onze standaard IEC motoren. De afmetingen komen precies overeen met de ‘standaard’ elektromotor. Dit is voor de machinebouwer een groot voordeel. Voor de grotere toepassingen bieden bij diverse mogelijkheden. De super premium rendement motoren van Kolmer Elektromotoren staan voor hogere energiebesparingen, lagere bedrijfskosten en toekomstgerichte investeringsbescherming op de lange termijn. Innovaties met deze energiezuinige elektromotoren hebben zeker al hun vruchten afgeworpen. In de ventilatorwereld bijvoorbeeld heeft Kolmer een project uitgewerkt waarbij we een energiereductie van ver boven de 20% hebben gerealiseerd. Maar ook voor grotere vermogens hebben we concrete voorbeelden waarbij er energiereducties van boven de 10% gerealiseerd zijn.

We closely observe the design phase in consultation with our customer

The above shows that it is certainly worth the trouble to talk to our advisors about sustainability and innovation. Nowadays we, as in we and you, our customer, closely observe the design phase of a machine. You asking your sustainability question at the start of this process often produces a surprising result. By closely observing the design phase together, our experience can help you view the design phase in a different way.

We focus on customised/custom-made solutions

Supplying customer-specific motors is based on a thorough understanding of the specific current technologies and requires knowledge, expertise and experience during the design and development phases. This greatly sums up what our dedicated and experienced team has to offer for a wide variety of applications and once again emphasises our focus on customised/custom-made solutions.
Would you like to know more about the potential of an electric motor for your specific situation according to the new guidelines? Please contact us. The advisors of Kolmer Electric Motors are happy to advise you without any obligation.

Applications in the industry:

Propulsion – Durability & Innovation

Electric motors for making propulsion more sustainable. The power of Kolmer In shipping as well, innovation and sustainability are high on the list of priorities. In this sector we have to look for sustainability in saving energy. How would you go about that? A good example is the propulsion of a ship. A combustion engine…
