Bauer PMSM with BG and BF Series Gearing for Plastic Bottle Blow Molding Machines

November 20, 2014

A leading global manufacturer of stretch blow molding machines for PET bottles wanted to upgrade the geared motor efficiency on their line of equipment to be prepared for anticipated future increases in efficiency standards. Geared motors are the main drive for the machine’s carousel on which PET blanks are inserted into molds and blown to shape.

The OEM’s motor specification required an output power rating of 5.5 kW @ 50 Hz with IE3 efficiency. The geared motors are housed in a tight compartment with limited space and need to withstand the rigors of 24-hour operation.

Highlights

IE3 PMSM

  • 5.5 kW (size 112) selected due to their small diameter
  • Built-in thermistors and attached encoders
  • High-efficiency through 2-stage base design
