mk to implement new EU regulation on its conveyors

mk Technology Group will install IE3 class motors in its conveyors and transfer systems in the future, going beyond the new EU regulation (EC) 641/2009

From 1st July 2021 electric motors with outputs between 120 and 750 watts must satisfy energy efficiency class IE2. However, the mk Technology Group and its suppliers have announced that they will be taking a step further. Instead of complying only with class IE2, mk will use class IE3 motors – one level better. The company will be updating all design data accordingly with the new IE3 motors. 

In order to avoid any opportunity of interference in tighter installations, the company draws the attention of machine builders to the fact that some IE3 motors are slightly larger than the motors previously used. mk says that by using its new IE3 motors, customers will save on energy costs and ensure that they continue to comply with current standards.


IE3 motors will soon be fitted to all mk conveyors
