SicmeOrange1 DC Industrial Motors

Do you need to replace your AC Industrial motor?

Drives and Automation are  the UK supplier of the world class powerful square frame AC Industrial Motor MQ Series from Sicme Motori (Sicme Orange1).

The square frame design enables a more powerful AC Industrial Motor in a smaller size than traditional round frame options.

When used along side a modern AC drive,  a Sicme Orange1 AC Industrial Electric Motor offers you high performance which is suitable for industry applications such as extruders, paper lines and lifts.

Variable speed AC Motors give high performance at low speeds which makes them suitable for applications such as coiler and winder operations where there is a requirement to maintain tension at standstill.

What applications can these motors be used on?

The MQ Series of Industrial Motors from Sicme Motori (Sicme Orange1) are general purpose square frame AC motors suitable for a variety of applications including:

Cable transport
Sheet metal working machines
Machine tools
Plastic extruders
Blowing machines
Woven wire manufacturing machines
Industrial washing machines
Amusement rides
Thread/cable manufacturing machines
Steel/copper cable working machines
Board working machines


A little bit more information..

Every Sicme MQ Series Industrial Motors are suitable for either clockwise or counter-clockwise rotation without adjustment, and they are generally tuned in the Test Room for this operating condition. In special cases, when the direction of rotation is defined, upon request, Test Room tuning can be carried out for one direction only.

- High power with relation to the external size
- Small external dimensions
- High rotation speed (up to 8000 rpm)
- Maximum and continuous torque are available even at low speed
- Small moment of inertia of the rotor
- Degrees of protection IP54 and IP23
- Dimensional and power comparability with direct current motors.
- Ventilation and speed transducer incorporated in the motor structure
- High mechanical robustness
- High precision of rotation speed
- Insulation class F (CEI EN60034-1)

Standard arrangement uses ball bearings on both DE and NDE, grease lubricated for “life”, totally shielded on both sides (2Z type).
The standard mounting solution is IM 1001 mounting form (B3 according to UNEL 05513). Most of the forms of construction and mounting are available. For other forms of construction, please ask our sales. A second shaft end is also available on request.

Operating environment:

It is assumed that the environment is:
dry, i.e. with relative humidity of the air below 75%. However, an excessively dry atmosphere (below 20% relative humidity) can cause commutating difficulty (excessive brush wear).
clean, i.e. without appreciable quantities of dust and dirt in general, suspended in the air.
free of chemical agents, i.e. without concentrations of gas or vapours that could chemically harm the copper, iron, aluminium,paints and insulation.

Sicme MQ Series AC Motors can also be installed in difficult environments (damp, dusty, chemically harmful, etc.) but in this case the degree of protection, method of cooling and possibly the choice of materials must be agreed upon prior to ordering.

All Sicme MQ Series Motors may be installed in environments with temperature down to –15°C and stored in environments with temperature down to –30°C.


AC Industrial Asynchronous Vectorial Motors - MQ series

The asynchronous motors MQ series have been specially engineered to achieve reduced dimensions, high performances in variable speed applications with flux vector type controllers. They were born due the great experience of two important companies in the field of industrial automation: Magnetic Motors & SicmeMotori. The main feature is in the laminated stator pack which carries out the functions of the frame and integrates the air circulation system. In particular, these motors, even though they are sensibly more compact, make it possible to achieve very high specific powers with regard to a standard motor with the same shaft height. The distinctive electromagnetic and mechanical design permits operation in constant power mode at maximum speeds of up to 8000 RPM. The efficient stator cooling system uses an auxiliary electrofan to combine the benefits of reduced dimensions and high, continuous, low-speed torque capability.

Not quite sure what you need?

All you have to do is simply send us a clear photo of the name/rating plate on your existing motor and let us know a little bit more about your application and we'll take care of the rest.  We'll need to know things like the required IP rating, are any special paint finishes needed?, how about tropicalisation or space heaters? Do you need ball bearings or roller bearings on the drive end? how about terminal box position (describe this looking down the shaft of the motor towards the motor body) and do you need encoder feedback?
