Industrial DC Motors

Drives and Automation are an industry leading supplier of world class powerful square frame Industrial DC motors from Sicme Motori (Sicme Orange1).  For over 40 years Sicme have manufactured and sold DC Industrial motors for many heavy-duty industries sector such as steel, transport, lifting, mining, cement, cable cars, paper, plastics, rubber, wires, cables, etc

Sicme Industrial DC motors are available in a number of ranges, from the powerful SM-ML range Mill Duty motors to general purpose RA Series DC industrial motors.

The RA Series of Industrial DC Motors from Sicme are an industry leading general purpose square frame Industrial DC motors suitable, for a wide variety of industrial applications:

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

The square frame motor design enables a more powerful DC motor in a smaller size than traditional round frame industrial dc motor options.

When used along side a modern DC drive, an industrial DC electric motor offers you high performance which is suitable for industry applications such as extruders, paper lines and lifts.

Variable speed Industrial DC 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.

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

Motors are custom built to order, enabling a wide variety of options, from terminal box position to choice of tachogenerator.
