EMZ Bike Challenge
On October 01, 2021, we launched a bicycle challenge at EMZ with the goal of doing something good for yourself and your health as well as for a good cause. Every kilometer counts. To mark the occasion, our new EMZ-blue bike racks were inaugurated last week under a bright blue sky, creating the best conditions for an active October.
May the most active cyclists win - on the saddles, get set, GO!
EMZ was once again able to prevail in a strong international competition and win a tender for a 3,600 kW three-phase slip-ring motor to drive a ball mill in a cement plant in North Africa.
The motor is designed as an electrically and mechanically interchangeable reserve motor, so that the motor can be installed on the existing foundations without any adjustments. The special challenge in the design of the slip-ring motor was the limited crane capacity of 20t at the site. Only by using high-quality materials, an electrical design with low losses and optimised efficiency could the EMZ meet the customer's individual requirements. After a successful test run in the EMZ test field in Recklinghausen, the large mill drive with a torque of no less than 69,500 Nm was seaworthily packed and sent on a journey to North Africa.
The delivery for this customer included two further slip-ring motors with an output of 300 kW and 1,700 kW, which are also electrically and mechanically interchangeable with the motors on site.
Three-phase slip ring motor:
Make: EMZ | Power: 3,600 kW | Voltage: 5,500 V | Speed: 495 rpm | Protection class: IP 55 | Cooling type: IC 26 | Weight motor: 19,500 kg / separate air bonnet with forced cooling fans: 1,500 kg
We manufacture high‐voltage motors and large drives: Whether it is a slip‐ring motor, squirrel‐cage
motor, synchronous machine or a 100 per cent interchangeable replica.
Our in‐house brand product, the EMK electric motor, is suitable for almost every application due to its
robust design. The concept for our EMK motors is that we place special emphasis on exceptional
quality combined with a reasonable price range.
Our EMK frequency converters provide energy‐efficient drive solutions. Available as single‐phase or
three‐phase devices with a power range of up to 400 volts. Also, there are further low voltage
converters and medium voltage converters in our range of products. We are able to offer the suitable
inverter for all of your applications.
Regardless of which product you choose, we ensure customer‐oriented solutions and deliver
everything from production to commissioning ‐ all from a single source.
Our competent sales team also supports you with any product advice, independent of the manufacturer. You will receive your offer as soon as possible and also at short notice. Thanks to our purchasing volume, we have the possibility to offer branded products at attractive prices - for high voltage motors, low voltage motors, geared motors, frequency converters and transformers. EMZ delivers products of leading manufacturers. Among our long-term partnerships are for example Siemens, SEW, Lenze and Nord Drivesystems.
Our qualified team offers you a broad service portfolio:
commissioning, maintenance and diagnostics , as well as repairs. Highest
quality assurance is ensured by our own large-engine test facility.
