The last decade has seen a world of transformation in the electric motors manufacturing industry. The 2020 pandemic has disrupted industrial growth across the global. However, the industry leaders have been leveraging this disruption to their advantage by adopting highly efficient “Business as New Usual” (BaNU) operating models–automation, innovation and sustainability being the key drivers.
Market research such as McKinsey have conducted a comprehensive report called Reboost, motor design competence such as using synchronous motor technology can lead to improvements in cost, performance, and motor control.
Automation, Innovation & Sustainability
The automotive, industrial automation, and 3D printing industries are predicted to witness a rapid growth rate with the increasing adoption of automation to improve energy efficiency and reduce (turn-around-time) TAT. Energy efficiency is found to be a key factor in reducing the industry’s operating cost significantly. Further, customers are looking for reliable energy-efficient motors
conforming to IE4 and IE5 efficiency levels. The only way for solution providers to anticipate customers’ expectations is through innovation and continuous improvement of designs and solutions before providing them to the customer.+
The Mettle of Matel
Matel Motion and Energy Solutions, headquartered in Pune, is perfectly poised in this domain. Matel is one of the leading Indian motor companies, possessing in-depth expertise in the manufacturing & design of customized electric motors and drives. A thorough understanding of Synchronous Motor Technology, while ensuring high performance and affordability, sets this company apart from its competitors in the market.
“We foresee a tremendous surge in the electric motors manufacturing industry across the globe. With several years of engineering in the Synchronous Motors field, we can confidently claim that we are positioned to serve the market with best-in-class technology,” says Mahesh Toraskar, Founder & CEO at Matel Motion & Energy Solutions. He further emphasizes that the key to a satisfied customer lies in attaining a thorough understanding of the user's unique needs and expectations. Their team of experts then proceed to ideate and design the solution. Once the plan is mapped out, the team executes the project while ensuring design improvisations, if and when required along the project lifecycle. All the while, the team ensures the project is delivered within the stipulated timeframe.
With a strong focus on Industrial Automation, Energy saving & Pumping, Matel takes a directed interest in technological innovations in electromagnetic mobility. “We never look at Electric Motor in isolation; it is always a part of a subsystem as it continuously interacts with other subsystems such as drives and loads. Extending our focus to other systems gives us a better understanding of what is needed from the Motor,” adds Mahesh.
Re-defining Future Goals
The electric motor market displays great potential, and promises immense development in the future. Gearing up for the future, Matel envisages continuing to cater to this booming market demand, and working on releasing more product capabilities. “We are geared to continuously innovate, enhance the efficiency levels, and develop magnet-free motor technologies for these efficiency levels,” reveals Mahesh. Additionally, in the coming years most of the customers would change their applications that use asynchronous motors, to synchronous motors; and Matel already has developed solutions for migration of these applications.
