It Should Always Be About Quality!

Good Morning Folks!

It’s a well known fact that UK manufacturing is some of the best in the world. It’s also a known fact that there are no longer any electric motors manufactured in the UK. But we do have exceptionally high quality motors manufacturers in Europe, which despite our watery barrier, we are still a part of. It would seem then, or you would think, that UK manufacturers would be trying to source electric motors from within the EU instead of from China (as an example). We know that the quality of the ‘cheaper’ motors is ‘sufficient’ to do the job required, but are the ‘cheaper’ motor manufacturers prepared to offer a 3 year warranty? 

Although UK manufacturers might be trying to save on manufacturing costs, they don’t seem to have noticed that the costs from the likes of China and India (as examples) are creeping up! Plus of course there is the IE ratings to consider.

We at Beatson Fans & Motors Ltd believe that quality should be of the utmost importance within the UK and that is why we are proud to be stockists of the Exico brand of European manufactured electric motors!

Quality can come at a price! But if the price is right there’s no contest!

Electric Motors – What Are They & How Do They Work?

The Definitive Guide To Electric Motors – PART 2

In the second part of our guide to Electric Motors, we take a quick look at how they work and some applications for the most common types of motor.

An electric motor is a machine which is powered by electricity and converts it into a mechanical force. There are a number of devices which do this such as a loudspeaker or industrial fan for example, but the electric motor specifically generates ROTARY motion. This rotary motion can drive a shaft on which other mechanical elements can be driven. This motion can then be applied to drive the machinery behind things as small as a wristwatch to gigantic ship propulsion propellers. Electric motors are quickly replacing the more traditional hydraulic cylinders in airplanes and also in some military equipment.

The History of Electric Motors

The Definitive Guide To Electric Motors – PART 1

As the first part of our complete guide to Electric Motors, we take a look at the complex and contentious history of electric motor invention.

The history of electric motors is a long and complicated one. Many elements went into the creation of what we know today as electric motors; you could examine back as far as the 600 BC when Thales of Miletus wrote about what we now know as static electricity, and as up-to-date as the newest electric vehicles. As such, timelines usually differ in small ways, and this is by no means a definitive list of all relevant inventions; we have only tried to create as accurate a timeline pertaining to electric motors specifically. The timeline is muddled further as many people throughout the world were independently working on the same projects, meaning often the inventor who secured the patent is credited as the true creator.
