FLANDERS high-performance motors
We offer four lines of FLANDERS industrial electric motors that run stronger and longer than conventional motors.
New AC motors for machine upgrades and DC conversions
Our FLANDERS-original, built-for-purpose AC motors will take your machine’s performance to a new level.
Depending on your machine and application, upgrading from DC to AC can improve machine performance by as much as 30%. Our MAC motors—which drop into your machine’s current AC frame footprint—take those performance gains even further by using:
- Tighter tolerance
- Inverter-duty rated insulation systems
- Higher speeds, starting torque, and torque ratings
- Modular design for ease of repair
- VFD/VSD bearing protection
- And other technology enhancements
These application-specific motors also feature design improvements to address common points of failure in a given machine. These are purpose-built FLANDERS motors, backed by our industry-leading warranties.
Drop-in AC and DC motor upgrades with greater horsepower and reliability
With our M Motor offering, we upgrade your current AC or DC motor using FLANDERS-engineered components and tighter process standards to increase the horsepower, reliability, and lifespan of your machines. M Motor upgrade options include, but are not limited to:
- Insulation system enhancements
- Cooling system modifications for airflow improvement
- Upgraded mechanical components (shaft, bearings, spider, end rings, etc.)
- Optimized applied voltages and current densities for improved magnetic profile
FLANDERS M Motor upgrades require no modifications to the existing motor frame.
FLANDERS M Motors for mining shovels deliver up to 60% gains in peak power, compared to conventional systems (2000 vs. 1250).
Severe-duty DC motors for heavy industrial applications
The groundbreaking innovations in our ME 800- and 1000-series motors set new performance benchmarks for DC motors in severe-duty applications.
By using tighter tolerances, improved armatures, better coil insulation, and proprietary manufacturing processes, we reduce circulating currents inside the machine to achieve greater efficiency, more horsepower, and higher peak power.
Built to standard AISE-equivalent frame sizes, our factory-new DC motors are a great way to get more production out of your current machines.
For force-ventilated machines, you can boost the torque of your ME Motors by ~12% by over-exciting the fields.
Designed, engineered, and custom manufactured for your exact needs
We can develop higher-performance AC or DC motors—from concept to commissioning—for heavy industrial machines and unique applications of any kind. We’ll work closely with you and pay special attention to solution context to make sure that what we develop meets your exact needs and standards.
There is no job too big for FLANDERS. And whether it’s a clean-sheet design, re-engineering an obsolete system, or eliminating weaknesses in a conventional design, a FLANDERS motor is your assurance of cost-effective reliability and outstanding performance.
