MENZEL electric motors plant and production

Our motor plants in Berlin and Peine are optimally equipped for producing customized electric motors, or for the short-term, tailored modification or replication of large electric machines. With a continuous increase in sales, and expansion of sales internationally, various investments have been made in motor production during the last few years.

State-of-the-art technological equipment make it possible for us to provide you with all individual drive solutions for all individual cases. Furthermore, several production halls are available for individual manufacture and modification of our electric motors. In addition, we have several warehousing locations in Germany with an area of over 40,000m².

Mechanical motor manufacturing

  • Lathes up to 10 t/ Distance between centers of 6 m
  • Impregnation plant and drying kilns up to an shaft height of 800 mm
  • In-house welding shop for flexible production of special components and custom-made welded designs
  • Paint cabin with a crane capacity of 16t per component and an inner volume of 120 m³
  • VPI impregnation plant
  • Experienced specialists who truly understand their craft

Electrical motor manufacturing

Our electric motors are generally produced as individual units. It requires considerable manual work, skill, and years of experience to be able to provide such a wide range of electrical modification options. This is how we guarantee the high quality, reliability, and durability of our electric motors.

  • Dynamic balancing machines up to 6 t
  • Test area of up to 2,300 kVA at full load, up to 10,000 kW in no-load operation
  • Torque measurement up to 30,000 Nm

Motor assembly and testing

No completed electric motor leaves the motor plant without a final test. For this purpose, MENZEL operates a state-of-the-art test area at the Berlin site with an output of 2,300 kVA. This enables tests of up to 1,800 kW under load and up to 10,000 kW in no-load operation.

The test area is equipped with state-of-the-art electrical and mechanical measurement technology such as 6 kV inverters, rotating converters for all other voltages from 3 to 13.8 kV and load resistors for testing electricity generators. Waiting times were reduced by installing two clamping fields, both being 9x3 m in size. In addition, a crane with a capacity of 16 t (hook height 4.5 m above the clamping field) and a 10 t crane (hook height 5.2 m) are both available, and these can be coupled if required. Heavier weights or other lifting heights are also possible upon request.

Paintwork and logistics

In addition, MENZEL has invested in a state-of-the-art paint cabin at the Berlin site in order to improve quality and productivity. This means we are able to fully satisfy the increasingly stringent demands of our customers with regard to corrosion protection, aesthetics, and special colors whilst also satisfying all international guidelines and environmental standards. The new plant also accelerates the curing process so that newly-painted electric motors can leave the paint cabin on the same day and therefore be delivered.

The new paint cabin is accommodated together with the MENZEL test area in an extra hall that can be easily accessed by trucks. The last work steps including motor testing, painting, and packaging the motor can all take place here in the very same building, which means considerable savings in both energy and production capacity, as well as enabling us to work even faster.
