The motor industry in North America has worked on a standardized basis since the early part of the 20th century. In 1926, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) was established to provide a forum for the standardization of electrical equipment, enabling consumers to select from a range of safe, effective and compatible electrical products. To this day, NEMA updates and publishes standards, application guides and technical papers for electrical products and works in advocacy for the industry.
2021-07-22 Company News
The underlying customer activity in the second quarter increased slightly on a sequential basis. However, orders and revenues increased significantly compared with last year’s low levels, when the adverse business impact of the COVID-19 pandemic was at its peak. Double-digit order growth was reported in all business areas driven by a broad-based improvement across most short-cycle customer segments and a positive development in several process-related businesses. Growth was to some extent supported by customers stock-building.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 48 million people get sick, 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 die from diseases transmitted by contaminated food annually in the United States. Among the major bacteria that cause these diseases are Listeria and Salmonella. This statistic is alarming and shows that much remains to be done to ensure food safety and public health, especially now that, due to a pandemic like the Coronavirus, hygiene and sanitation requirements have become and will become more rigorous. For this reason, ABB, a world leader in industrial automation with more than one million washdown electric motors installed in the food industry worldwide, continues to design technologies that contribute to energy sustainability, food safety and comply with regulations set by bodies such as the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). ABB is also known for listening to food processors and organizations such as the U.S. National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) to design products that contribute to the processing of high-quality food products.
Electric motors play a vital role in our everyday lives - where we live, work and play. Simply put, they make almost everything that moves, move. Nearly 70 percent of electricity consumed by industry is used by electric motor systems.
Jesse Henson wants you to think of motors the way you think of lightbulbs. Most people recognize the energy and cost savings to be had by switching from incandescent bulbs to LED light sources. In the same way, they should see the advantages of swapping out anachronistic, clunky motors for newer alternatives, said Henson, president of ABB’s NEMA Motors Division.
A well-known glass company founded in Detroit, Michigan in 1932, now has operations throughout the world. In Bajio, Mexico, an ABB field sales engineer (FSE) helped the company solve an ongoing problem at one of its glass plants.

To choose the right motor for your application, you need to consider more than just horsepower, speed, and torque, of course. With electric motor systems accounting for about 70% of the electricity demand in industry, energy efficiency has long been a prerequisite that seemed, however, to be reaching its limits. Efficiency is being pushed further through full system optimization, but requirements are also increasing for improved hygiene, safety, connectivity, data availability…everything that will keep those motors and drives—and all the production equipment they keep in motion—from shutting down unexpectedly.
Improvements in efficiency, sophisticated drives, and internet connectivity all help make electric motors more versatile than ever. Motors are getting more efficient, durable and versatile. And that’s not even the best part. Electric motors of all kinds, and the drives that operate them, have made considerable progress over the past few decades in terms of how they use energy and how they can be used themselves. Perhaps the most intriguing is how they can be made to yield information, about themselves and the equipment they power, through the Internet of Things (IoT).
Motors are the driving force of industrial production. New approaches to motor monitoring, alignment, testing, and connections are saving time and costs while improving safety. At the same time, energy-saving motors and intelligent drives are boosting efficiency and performance while facilitating troubleshooting.

Since 1926, the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has set standards for motors used in North America. NEMA regularly updates and publishes MG 1, a book that assists users in the proper selection and application of motors and generators. It contains practical information concerning performance, efficiency, safety, testing, construction and the manufacture of alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) motors and generators. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) defines the standard for electric motors for the rest of the world. Similar to NEMA, IEC publishes Standard 60034-1, the motors guide for the global market.
Pressure on the mining industry to make the development of new facilities financially attractive to investors is increasing.
