SicmeOrange1 DC Industrial Motors

Replacement DC Industrial motors from Sicme-Orange1.

If you are looking for a replacement industrial DC motor to replace an old DC motor, you want to be buying a motor from a manufacturer with decades of experience in providing high quality, reliable motors.  Drives and Automation are an industry leading supplier of the world class powerful square frame RA Series DC Industrial Motors from Sicme Motori (Sicme Orange1).

The Sicme Orange1 square frame design enables a more powerful DC Industrial Motor in a smaller size than traditional round frame options, making your retrofit a simpler process.

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

Variable speed DC Industrial 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.

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

  • Cable transport
  • Machine tools
  • Sheet metal working machines
  • Plastic extruders
  • Blow moulding machines
  • Presses
  • Amusement rides
  • Woven wire manufacturing machines
  • Thread/cable manufacturing machines
  • Converting
  • Steel/copper cable working machines
  • Board working machines

All Sicme RA Series DC Industrial Motors are suitable for either clockwise or counter-clockwise rotation without adjustment (as the brushes are radial), 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.

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.

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 RA Series DC Industrial 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.

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

All this makes the Sicme RA Series of DC Industrial Motors perfect for your motor replacement and retrofit

If you are wanting to remove obsolete AC motors and move to AC, the MQ series of square frame motors offers a high power motor in a smaller frame size than a round frame AC motor, in fact in most cases they will fit in the same space as your existing DC motor, saving you down time and fabrication work to modify your bed.
