High Performance Motors (HP) is an innovative range of PM (Permanent Magnet) Synchronous Motors, achieving IE4 and even IE5 Super Premium Efficiency level, that offers improved efficiency and reduced operating costs. This uniquely engineered product combines the electrical design of Brushless Servomotors with the mechanical design of AC Induction Motors. The result is a compact motor range primarily targeted toward HVAC applications in pumps, fans, compressors, and blowers, where there is an emphasis on reducing the operating cost or weight and size of the motors.
Lafert places great emphasis on materials research. This has resulted in reduced dependency on rare earth magnets, allowing for the use of more readily available permanent magnets, which ensure price and supply stability into the future. Following this development work Lafert have introduced a second generation of PM Synchronous Motors, named HPF, achieving IE4 Super Premium Efficiency level, with more stable and reduced production costs without applying rare earth magnets.
AC motors have a significant impact on the total energy operation cost for industrial, institutional and commercial buildings.
With this in mind Lafert embraced the challenges and brought a combination of IE3 Premium Efficiency and high reliability product to service this lucrative market.
Today, the major factor influencing the motor industry is energy efficiency driven by both increasingly demanding legislation and industry’s greater awareness of green issue responsibilities.
The harsher the working environment the greater the demand on engineering standards, and non-standard then becomes the norm. Custom-design and engineering fulfil this need to give the reliability and performance demanded.
The Lafert Brake Motor series is engineered according to the client’s specification. Total control over all aspects of production permits multiple design options including flanges, shafts, brakes plus optimum resistance to external agents and hostile environments for paints, seals, and magnet surfaces.
The result is a range of AC motors produced entirely in-house which incorporates Lafert’s own technical solutions for achieving high efficiency and performance, combined with the option for application-specific customization.
Manufacturing brushless motors with permanent magnet motors since the early 90s, Lafert offers extensive proven expertise in this continuously developing technology.
This know-how is combined with the company’s on-going drive for excellence and its ability to offer non-standard solutions, all of which is invested in this product range. On-going research and development, often in conjunction with customers, continues to bestow superior performance in terms of speed, accuracy and control to satisfy application needs.
To demonstrate its strong customisation capacity, Lafert has presented the new series of compact motors with dedicated mechanical components (40, 60, 80, 130 and 180 mm square flange) and special electrical designs (230V and 400V).
