Siemens Electric Machines Drásov has opened a new production hall for a heavy winch. The hall with an area of 2,100 m2 will enable the production of large stators and rotors weighing up to 70 tons.
The 21-meter-high hall houses modern Vacuum Pressure Impregnation technology, which will be put into full operation in the coming weeks. Impregnation in a vacuum gives the winding better properties, such as higher dielectric strength, increased mechanical strength or protection against the ingress of water and chemicals, which ensure a longer and maintenance-free service life of the machine. The total production area of the plant thus increased to 19,135 m2.
