WEG now offers an additional line of rolled steel motors for a broad range of industrial applications.
ATLANTA, Georgia, April, 15, 2008 - WEG Electric Motors Corp., a leading global supplier of motors, drives and transformers, has developed a new family of 3-phase motors with rolled steel bodies and cast iron endbells for general industrial use. These new rolled steel motors are available in twelve standard sizes with ratings from 1 to 20HP for operation at 230 or 460 VAC mains.
"Our customers have been asking us to develop an alternative to our popular case iron motors for use in applications where a light weight motor is required, without sacrificing WEG quality or reliability," explained Gerardo Elias, Marketing Manager - Motors. "Our new rolled steel family of motors meets these requirements, while establishing a new value proposition, with list prices typically 9% less than equivalent cast iron motors."
WEG rolled steel motors are available from stock in the U.S. For more information on WEG and the WEG rolled steel motors, go to www.wegrolledsteel.com.
