Common Applications for Custom Electric Motors

Electric motors are available in several different styles and types and are therefore used across a wide range of applications. Electric motors also play a key role in industrial equipment and machinery, such as diesel trains, pumps, and compressors. Whether the setting is domestic, industrial, or commercial, some type of electric motor is probably in use. For this reason, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) often require specialized, custom electric motors.

In certain fields – such as the medical, construction, industrial, material handling, agriculture, HVAC, and food processing sectors – working with custom electric motors is crucial for OEMs looking to meet stringent industry regulations. Building a custom electric motor gives the purchaser more control over the final product while ensuring optimal quality and performance.

Custom electric motors allow for unique specifications, and various modifications can be made to the manufacturing process; for instance, reduced assembly time, reduced labor needs during production, and fewer individual and purchased parts can all translate to greater cost savings.
