Cost Reductions Result of Customization
Ice is an important part of our daily lives. Not only is it a necessity in the summer, but in the cold months too. It keeps food fresh and our drinks cold. At Power Electric we understand the strict requirements ice machines must adhere to and with our customization capabilities, we are confident we will produce a long-lasting and dependable motor for your ice application equipment.
Problem: A major manufacturer of ice making machines was looking to reduce the costs of two different sizes of their machines. In both cases, the gear motor being used for ice harvesting was costing them more than necessary. This type of motor is required to operate for as little as 3.5 minutes and up to more than a day before turning off, and with varying loads.
The customer had a stringent set of test criteria including passing an accelerated life test, performance over temperature, voltage, load conditions, agency listing (UL, cUL and RoHS), noise and dimensional accuracy. To earn their business, the Power Electric gear motor was required to equal, or exceed the incumbent in all categories.
Solution: By providing gear motors that met these requirements, Power Electric was able to provide the customer with substantial cost savings without compromising performance or reliability.
Gear motors are an integral part of today’s ice making equipment. Power Electric can supply gear motors to cost effectively meet the performance and life requirements found in today’s ice making machines. Power Electric can supply gear motors in a variety of sizes. These motors cost effectively combine a single phase induction motor with hypoid, spur or worm style gearheads.
Power Electric works with ice making equipment companies throughout the US, assisting customers with motor and gear motor solutions for their projects.
