Bauer hosts technology forum on energy efficiency

With electric motors estimated to consume 70% of all the energy used in industry, Bauer Gear Motor has hosted a technology forum to help its customers understand the latest developments in the industry and discuss the best practices for maximising energy efficiency.

Karl-Peter Simon, President of Bauer Gear Motor, spoke at the forum: “Improving energy efficiency isn’t simply a matter of social responsibility. Approximately 90% of the lifetime costs of an electric motor are associated with energy consumption, so understanding how the newest technologies can cut down on energy use is as important from a business perspective as it is from an environmental one. The purpose of the forum was to answer any questions our customers had about current and future legislation and offer guidance on the advantages of PMSM technology over ASM in certain industrial scenarios.”

Bauer claims to be at the forefront of Permanent Magnetics Synchronous Motor (PMSM) technology, having developed a range of gear motors which are suitable for operation in a range of applications including hazardous and hygiene critical areas. Its PMSM motors have a proven saving of over 30% under partial load when compared to asynchronous technology (even IE3 motors), which can result in significant cost savings in many applications, the company said.
