BI consolidates Tier 2 electrical products

First Quarter 2021 Electrical switching & drive systems & components

Following the recent successful launch of the Alpha Drive Micro and the Alpha Drive Plus ranges of variable speed drives, Bearings International (BI) is excited to announce the rebranding of its Bauer range of electric motors to Alpha. The growth of BI’s market share in electric motors is one of the major strategic initiatives it undertook in 2019, culminating in the recent announcement of its partnership with ABB to include high efficiency IE3 electric motors. The advantages of the partnership with ABB include dealing with a local supplier versus direct imports and the availability of quick technical backup. BI has extended its motor range with a 400 V and 525 V offering, allowing it to be able to supply projects in the mining industry.

ABB, in turn, will be able to leverage BI’s extensive 42-branch network across South Africa covering all the major mining and industrial areas, where BI has a major footprint. The availability of IE3 high efficiency motors from ABB will be especially welcomed by these sectors, where cost-effectiveness and total cost of ownership are key.

BI has a wide range of aluminium frame electric motors and aluminium housing three-phase asynchronous motors, all with the latest design and conforming to the IEC standard. The MA range of Bauer motors performs extremely well in even the toughest environments. It gives reliable performance and is easy to maintain. With a 0,18 to 7,5 kW output, these motors are lightweight and have low noise emission.
