WEG – key player in a niche market

Württembergische Elektromotoren GmbH was founded in 1939. Since February 2014, the company belongs to the WEG Group, Jaragua do Sul / Santa Catarina, Brazil.

The company was originally founded for the volume production of starter motors for sewing machines. This meant that WEG was closely involved in the transition from group drives to transmission belts and then single drives in what was a flourishing industry. This customised drive optimisation process gradually led WEG to specialise in drives in the 40 W to 1000 W power range. The company’s product range is finely scaled and has particularly high energy efficiency standards. The finer the increments between different products in a range, the more precisely the electrical power and thus energy consumption can be tailored to requirements.

The motor is the core of any WEG drive solution. The different gear units and application-optimised motor results in drive solutions offering state-of-the-art functionality, service life and energy efficiency. Once our drives have been installed, we are proud to say that we usually never see them again.

Our core markets include industrial automation, plant and machine construction, medical technology, logistics, and several high-tech industries.
