The Lafert Group has achieved an ambitious goal: the modernisation of the Lafert Motores Electricos facility in Zaragoza. Founded 25 years ago, the Group’s facility in Spain is now a market leader with a large stock of motors and a wealth of services for state-of-the-art customisation.
Lafert Motores Electricos offer an extensive range of products to meet all requirements for both the End-user market (mainly standard motors) and for OEM’s (special and custom-made motors). To support customers with short lead times the Spanish facility has its own mechanical workshop that performs various modifications to motors: from simple changing of the mounting flange to more complex work such as increasing the degree of protection to IP65, IP56, Marine, etc. and fitting internal protection devices such as PTOs, PTCs, PT100s, Klixons, heaters, etc. The workshop also offers a whole spectrum of services such as the application of special coatings, insulated bearings and more besides.
“Our customers are having to make significant changes to their R&D departments in order to meet the needs of a market in constant evolution, we see this as an opportunity for future growth of our products and services,” the Management of Lafert Motores Electricos explained. “In recent years, for example, we broke into the market of renewable energy, the wind sector in particular, where we offer a variety of motors for components used in wind turbines, such as Yaw drives, lifts, hoists, cooling units and hydraulic units, among others. Our aim is to strengthen our position on this market and assist machine manufacturers in need of help with the application of new technologies and energy-saving solutions, working together to face the challenges in a changing market with industry 4.0.”
The Management of Lafert Motores Electricos added: “We have great expectations for 2020, with projects in the pipeline for disparate sectors and applications. In the area of machine tools, textiles, household appliances and lifts our focus will be on the technological innovations that Lafert motors offer in mechanical and electrical customisation, special designs that have seen us become a leader in high-performance motors.”
