The new S4 42/6 motor


When Elte's venture began in 1978, the company entered the market offering high frequency electric motors exclusively designed and invented for the "wood" sector. Over the years, it has been able to improve and diversify the products offered in the market, building a catalogue of hundreds of motors and motor spindles for every sector. In fact, the proposal of new motors has also expanded into the mechanics sectors for light alloys, glass and, more recently, for marble.

Undoubtedly, each sector has its own problems and needs ad hoc solutions for each type of application. Elte, from this point of view, is always ready to support the customer in order to find solutions tailored to their every need and to fulfil these with a very quick turnaround. The company has always managed to deliver any type of motor in no more than four weeks. Thanks to decades of experience, it has a close working relationship with its customers and a parts warehouse which is used for the daily production of numerous electric motors.

The new S4 42/6 motor, for example, was born from this sharing of knowledge and experience, analysing needs, making the necessary dimensional calculations and evaluating the best parts to implement, and has been designed to be used for marble cutting and milling. The type of motors for this sector require high power with relatively low speeds, compared to those for wood. In addition, this type of application will be installed in a particularly humid environment, so these motors must be watertight by way of special sealing rings or labyrinth seals. They will be made of special steel alloys in order to prevent oxidation of their component parts. The treatments to be applied to the shafts and covers must also be suitable for this working environment, so as to avoid surface damage due to marble chips removed during processing.

Our absolute commitment to solving any problem whatsoever in order to meet our customers’ requirements is what characterises Elte and its employees. Our flexibility in design and production, from the simplest motors up to frequencies of 50/60 thousand revolutions, has made the company a point of reference for many firms within the national and international industry, both for large supplies and for a limited number of parts. The heart of the production is the Research and Development Department, where its technicians design, prototype and test more and more efficient motors that will enrich Elte’s extensive catalogue.
