From September 27th to 29th Birmingham will host the PPMA Show (Processing & Packaging Machinery Association), the UK’s most important packaging trade fair.
"For the first time – says Lafert Electric Motors Managing Director Brian Bannister – we will present the new Nema Premium EISA motor designed for the US market. Moreover, there will be the chance to see the main range of products for the packaging industry, including single-phase, brake motors, servomotors, stainless, customised solutions and of course, our growing range of high-efficiency motors, including IE3, IE4 and IE5.“
"Our experts will be available to update visitors with the details of the next mandatory stage of the efficiency regulation that will come into force in Europe in January 2017. Over the last 10 years – says Bannister – we have seen relevant progress in terms of technological design and we must do everything that we can to inform and educate our clients about the new regulations and how to make the most of this evolution and benefits that they bring.”
“In 2016, the packaging industry had significant expansion in the UK thanks to the construction of new plants and the growth of many OEMs, which will almost certainly continue in 2017. We intend to strengthen awareness about the brand as well as the quality and performance benefits of Lafert motors in this sector. One popular range is our brake motors, which are available in a wide variety of braking torques – says the Managing Director – they have been created over the years to meet specific market needs and make it easier to solve sector issues compared to many of our competitors due to the many options available.”
“We are members of the PPMA Association and work in close contact with them and the other members to meet the industry needs and demands. In general – says Bannister – in the UK we have a strong distribution network across the country with an almost 24/7/365 service coverage in some areas. Also, the fact that the major OEM’s can be in touch directly with Lafert specialists at the exhibition and through the PPMA is something very positive.”
“A few years ago we moved our operations to significantly larger premises, this increased our flexibility and meant that we could offer our customers what they needed when they needed it. This approach opened up new opportunities and led us to improve the high level of service even further that we provide to current clients. We are also working with new customers who have shown a real interest for our products and services based upon our technical abilities and support levels. Boosting our business – says Bannister – is certainly one of our main goals for 2017 in this and many other sectors."
