The company Kurt Maier Motor-Press GmbH was established in 1979. We are a medium-sized expansive enterprise with production sites in Germany and Southern Europe. We provide our customers with standard components for electric motors in frame sizes IEC 56 up to IEC 400, but also components made in accordance with our customers’ requirements.

Electric Motor Construction

Our component portfolio comprises a broad range of parts for electric motor construction. We deliver housings, flanges and terminal boxes made of aluminium die castings or grey cast iron in frame sizes 56-400, stator cores and rotor bodies, aluminium continuous casting, fan blade, fan guards, rain protection roofs, as well as a variety of further accessory parts, suitable for our component portfolio.

External Forced Ventilation

We offer external forced ventilation in frame sizes 56 to 560. The axial cooling fans are employed for permanent cooling of electric motors. These forced ventilation units consist of specific axial driven fans which are integrated in a protecting fan cowl. In addition to our standard series, which is available from stock, we also deliver aggregates as initial equipment or as retrofitting for all electric motor producers on the market.

Furthermore, we deliver centrifugal blower / radial blowers from 50 m³/h to 68,000 m³/h with direct drive and belt drive for temperatures up to 200°C, as well as blowers as stainless steel version and in special design.
