Are your gearmotors as energy efficient as they could be?

Don't miss out on additional energy savings. Make sure your gearmotors are as efficient as the rest of your plant.

By Scott Laird

Today, customers are focusing more and more on energy efficiency. Conserving power will become a more sensitive issue in the future, and we all need to be aware of the available options to fulfill those customer requests. We’ve discovered that, once we explain the average savings that can be achieved in the first year of use and beyond, customers are willing to invest in an initial gearmotor purchase to receive the long-term benefits.

Customers are saving $500 to $600 a year in power costs per gearmotor. So when you have 50 gearmotors on a system, you save between $25,000 and $30,000 annually. Dollars that add up quickly and can be reallocated or simply saved.

To learn more about gearmotors, read “How gearmotors offer additional savings with improved energy efficiency” from Control Design.
