Fast pay back on stainless motor

Fast pay back on stainless motor Florette Soleco, Europe's leading producer of pre-prepared salads recently installed a 2.2kW stainless steel motor from Marlin Stainless to replace a motor employed to drive salad leaf cutting blades on a specially engineered robot - an application subject to the presence of water and frequent hose wash downs. "Since installed more than a month ago, the Marlin motor has required no attention," says Colin Blenkinsop, chief engineer at Florette Soleco. "This has obvious benefits of uninterrupted production and significant financial savings. Consequently, we are planning to install a Marlin stainless motor on a second similar machine." Also, because of the success with this application, the feasibility of employing a Marlin stainless motor/gearbox packages for a number of robot arms on the same machine is being explored. In addition to its corrosion and water (IP66 rating) resistant characteristics, the Marlin motor has a smooth body. This means, unlike conventional AC motors, there are no cooling fins to trap potentially contaminating matter. Further, it is has a round terminal box and its details are etched into the body - no nameplate to trap waste product or fall off into the food. Marlin motors are offered in power ratings from 0.18 to 7.5kW in metric frame sizes up to 132 as TEFC machines. Smaller units (up to 0.75kW) are also available from 63 frame size as TENV machines.
