Founded in 1947, M.G.M. Motori Elettrici has specialized in the production of electrical brake motors since its establishment, so becoming one of the reference sector companies in the world. Headquartered in Italy, with a production plant in Serravalle Pistoiese (PT, Italy) and a warehouse with sale offices at Assago (Milan), the company also relies on factories in Montreal (Canada), Detroit (Usa), Chennai (India) and in Izmir (Turkey). Moreover, the global presence is ensured by its own network of distributors, for the sale and service in over 70 Countries.
In the factory at Serravalle Pistoiese, they produce 100% of brake motors and they machine the components for standard motors (without brake) that are then forwarded to foreign branches for the successive assembling. All over the world, subsidiaries are then provided with a warehouse with a broad availability of the various typologies of brake motors manufactured at Serravalle Pistoiese and with an assembling centre where they provide for mounting and testing standard motors with the components coming from Italy, to satisfy local customers’ demands. In this way, the necessary flexibility to satisfy customers’ needs is assured.
Products dedicated to specific sectors
M.G.M. brake motors are used on industrial plants and machines in the most various sectors. Customers’ different applications and demands have led to the development of dedicated products that can satisfy the various requirements. For this reason, they have implemented not only a very large range, but also articulated with specific solutions according to manifold use sectors.
In recent years especially, the constant attention paid by the company to innovation, product evolution and quality control has been completed by the research of higher average energy efficiency of both the motor and of the brake, privileging the use of recyclable material with low environmental impact. A lot of what we can find today in any brake motor with AC brake was conceived in M.G.M. laboratories.
The sustainable development and the environment protection are very important targets for the company. In the factory at Serravalle Pistoiese, almost 100% of the electric energy consumed is produced by the photovoltaic panels positioned on the cover, while the building conditioning is supported by a geothermal plant. Further investments are scheduled in the short-term to enlarge the photovoltaic plant, in order to support the electrical shift of the corporate vehicle fleet.
Two ranges, many performances
The brake motors by M.G.M. Motori Elettrici are available in two product ranges called BA and BM:
- The motors of BA series are available with single or double speed, with axis height included between 71 and 315 mm and powers from 0.04 to 132 kW.
They are characterized by a very short brake reaction time, in both releasing and braking, by a high braking torque, by constant stop times and by the possibility of supporting cycle frequency and a very high workload.
- The BM series includes enclosed motors with external ventilation, they too provided with one or two speeds, with axis height included between 56 and 315 mm and powers from 0.04 to 132 kW. The distinguishing peculiarities of this series are the extreme silence while braking, the progressivity in phase of motor start and stop and the notable compactness of overall dimensions.
The production range by M.G.M. includes also the series of standard asynchronous three-phase motors (without brake) series SMX. These motors are characterized by extreme reliability and sturdiness. Motors can be supplied with the necessary certifications for the sale in various Countries in the world.
All one-speed motors designed and manufactured by M.G.M. are available with the energy efficiency level in conformity with the new European Regulation come into force on July 1st 2021.
