New - Magnetic Encoder
 AVTRON Encoder by kMMp
AVTRON Encoder

As general agency of AVTRON we offer you incremental encoder.

Failures of encoders are the past. Advanced sensor technology and a robust construction make them insensitive to external influences such as dust, dirt and water.

magnetic encoder work without wear and offer a maximum of operational safety.

Emac´s current stockholding (as at 01/01/2013) is Rand 15 million. This is made up as follows:

VEM electric motors
cemp flameproof motors
kMMp components and spare
Rand 11 million
Rand 750.000
Rand 750.000
Rand 3,5 million

Emac makes every effort to carry „good stock“, through continued analyses of the market requirement, and are able to have the motors ex stock, meeting their client´s needs.

With the very short lead time in the VEM manufacture programme, Emac also enjoys a quick and even supply from Germany, reducing the problem of carrying „dead stock“.

VEM Motors GmbH

On standard motors there are massive stockholdings in Germany whereas any standard motor can be delivered within 24 hours.

 There are three warehouses in Germany with following stockholding:

  • Factory Wernigerode, approximately 7.000 electric motors from frame IEC 56 upto IEC 315
  • VEM warehouse Essen, Germany , 6.000 electric motors from frame IEC 56 upto IEC 315
  • Warehouse Munich, Germany, 5.000 electric motors frome frame IEC 56 upto frame IEC 315

Further, facilities exist to have any purpose made motor ready for delivery within 48 hours providing the basic type is available from any of above three warehouses.

Leadtimes for fabrications are as follows:

  • VEM factory Thurm (frame IEC 56 upto 112)  4 weeks after order
  • VEM factory Wernigerode (frame 132 upto 315)   7 - 8 weeks after order

There are weekly shipments form Germany (ports of Hamburg or Bremen) and the sailing time to Port Elizabeth is 21 days.

Long term strategy

Our long term strategy will be that VEM electric motors would become a major electric motor supplier in Southern Africa.

Our target will be a market share of  20 - 30 % for low voltage electric motors.

Rewind strategy

Emac does not have its own rewinding facilities in Meadowdale.

Emac uses the facilities of various rewinders and electric motor repairs who have the ability, quality, standards, manpower capacity, transport and service standards that are acceptable to both your company  and the S.A.B.S.

Furthermore, we negotiate the best possible guarantee periods on the rewind and also supply a test certificate when complete, giving the end user every advantage on the repaired unit.
