Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Food and Beverage Industry Motors

1. What motor/gear motor technologies are trending upward in food and beverage equipment applications?

Brushless DC motors and brushless DC gear motors are being used more and more because the industry is recognizing that these motors provide a long service life and high efficiency.

More efficient AC gear motors are another trend. The motors, often using hypoid, bevel or spiral bevel gear reducers, provide increased efficiency, greater output speed and better overall performance.

Finally, optimized solutions have overtaken standard solutions. Standardized solutions typically include features that are unnecessary for a particular application, yet the customer still pays for them. Today’s manufacturers have realized that customized motor solutions eliminate unnecessary costs by only including features that suit particular needs. These individually tailored solutions are developed quickly through Power Electric, without the worries about supply or inventory.

2. Can Power Electric provide a solution with all necessary agency approvals?

Absolutely. We work with clients on the front end to fully define the critical requirements of their application, including all necessary agency approvals/markings. This includes RoHS, Reach, UL, CE, and many more. Those requirements become part of our product specification and are carried through the entire proof of concept, prototype, qualification, and production stages of development.

3. How can Power Electric help us improve our product margins/profitability without sacrificing performance and reliability?

We do this in multiple ways:

Our technical and quality personnel enable you to move value engineering or new product development programs forward faster, without having to add your own internal resources, reducing the overall program investment and driving higher ROI.
