When HANNOVER MESSE opened its gates for the first time seventy years ago, Bauer Gear Motor GmbH - based in Esslingen, Germany - had just put its teenage years behind it. Fast forward to 2017, and this drive specialist can now look back at ninety eventful years and a vast accumulation of know-how. Bauer is keen to celebrate its enduring commitment to innovation at HANNOVER MESSE 2017. The company’s presentation this year includes products for wastewater treatment, electric motors with increased energy efficiency, the Bauer HiflexDRIVE range, stainless steel geared motors for hygiene-critical environments and customized technical solutions for applications involving special requirements.
Bauer is also showcasing a selection of its IP protection classes, featuring special sealing systems and special coatings. One of the highlights is an exhibit developed for operation in sewage sludge at depths of up to 10 meters. The underwater Bauer BK10 helical bevel geared motor meets various standards, including the strict British "Water Industry Mechanical and Electrical Specification" (WIMES), which lays down specific performance properties and designs for electric motors and related control technology.
