The new production plant is officially in operation after its formal unveiling at Lafert’s 60th anniversity celebrations in San Donà di Piave, Italy, close to the historic headquarters. 

The 130 000 sq foot plant was developed to increase production capacity and meet the growing demand for IE5 Super Premium Efficiency motors, while also providing new storage areas for raw materials and finished products. In this plant alone, Lafert is able to produce up to 1400 pieces per day and can ship 4-5 international containers per week thanks to the internal customs area. 

The project began in September 2020 with the aim of building a brand-new manufacturing plant to produce high efficiency permanent magnet motors, specifically intended for pumping applications. The plant was designed and built with extensive automated production capabilities including fully automated production lines. Today the plant employs 50 operators who have been carefully trained to work in synergy with the production lines. The plant delivers maximum comfort in the working conditions of the operators in terms of light, space, services, and other factors that affect the well-being of employees.

DCS New LUTZE DRIVEFLEX and MOTIONFLEX VFD Cables from Automation Direct 1 400x275

AutomationDirect has added new LUTZE DRIVEFLEX® and MOTIONFLEX® variable frequency drive cables which provide supreme protection against electromagnetic interference (EMI).

These cables are available in 18 to 8 AWG sizes and include four black conductors with a green/yellow ground conductor of the same gauge. Each conductor is labeled for easy identification and is covered in a cross-linked Polyethylene (XLPE) insulation (type XHHW-2) that is oil and sun resistant, suitable for dry, damp, or wet locations, and approved for direct burial.

The DRIVEFLEX series has a black PVC outer jacket ideal for stationary applications, while the MOTIONFLEX series has a black thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) outer jacket designed for continuous motion applications. Both cables are tray cable-exposed run rated (TCER) for use in cable trays with or without conduit, which can significantly reduce installation costs.

The new DRIVEFLEX series cable starts at $2.58 /ft. and the MOTIONFLEX series cable starts at $3.67 /ft.  Both cables are made in the USA and can be ordered cut to length in 1-foot increments with a 10ft minimum.
