High performance, long durability and minimal maintenance - Ankarsrum Electric Motors has developed a new range of Swedish-made brushless DC motors. The news will be launched at Elmia Subcontractor.
- We are globally known for our range of motors in the welding segment, where our solution has become an industry standard today. Now we have built on our expertise and started manufacturing Swedish-made brushless DC motors," says Carl Sigfridsson, CEO of Ankarsrum Electric Motors.
Long life and minimal maintenance
A brushless motor, also known as an electronically commutated motor, has several advantages over other control systems.
- This type of engine has good performance, high efficiency and long life in continuous operation with minimal maintenance," says Carl Sigfridsson.
A sustainable alternative
Small brushless DC motors are not new to the market. They have been in the standard range of suppliers in both Asia and Europe for a long time.
- As a Swedish supplier, we can now offer this product and give our customers a sustainable alternative with reduced delivery costs and short lead times," says Carl.
To launch the new brushless DC motor to a wide audience with the opportunity to reach out to a wide range of industries, Ankarsrum Electric Motors has chosen to exhibit at Elmia Subcontractor in November.
Premiere at Elmia Subcontractor
- This will be our premiere at Elmia and it feels like the right forum to present us and our product to a broader segment of different industries," says Carl Sigfridsson.
Elmia Subcontractor was chosen precisely because of its breadth. Here, buyers and suppliers from the manufacturing industry throughout Europe meet.
- We want to make the Ankarsrum brand known to the general public and let technicians and project managers know that we exist. If you have questions about engines, we are the ones to turn to," says Carl.
Development and volume production in Ankarsrum
Operations in Ankarsrum have been continuous since the mill was founded in 1655. In the 1970s, production of electric motors with windscreen wiper motors for Saab and Volvo, among others, began. In the 1980s, DC motors for the welding industry were developed in co-operation with ESAB and have since continued with a wide range of motors for kitchen appliances and other applications. Today the business includes a high-tech development centre where electric motors are designed, built and tested from concept to pre-series.
- "Here we customise solutions for our customers where they can decide everything from the size of the motor and how the shaft should look to the performance it should have," says Carl.
The engines are then manufactured in Ankarsrum's highly automated plant, which can produce up to 3,000 engines per day.
