Recycling of electric motors
When an electric motor is obsolete, it must be disposed of in accordance with applicable national regulations. Recycling of its components should be done as far as possible. Material recycling saves both natural resources and energy and is more environmentally friendly.
The main components of our electric motors are cast iron (housing), steel (shaft, stator and rotor core, small parts), aluminum (housing, rotor), copper (coils), plastics (insulating materials such as polyamide, polypropylene etc.), elastomers and asbestos-free sealing materials. Electronic components such as converters, encoder and such are handled separately. Oils and fats should be recycled correctly and not released into nature! Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for current oil.
To make it easier for you as a customer, we receive electric motors that must be recycled free of charge.
