Flat motors

HIMMEL®_ Flat motors have a compact and space-saving design that is ideal for milling, cutting, scoring, boring, sawing, chipping and grinding - in both complex heavy-duty machine systems where demands on the drive unit for operating precision and performance are high, and simple machine systems where an affordable and reliably drive solution is needed.

Our flat motors have been design so that they will operate flawlessly, even under the toughest of conditions.

The HIMMEL®Flat motor range consists of six different design sizes so that we will always have the right motor for the widest range of usage conditions. Alongside our decades of experience, our motors are under constant development. The latest technology and the specific needs of our customers are what define our products.

Technical data

Motor sizes are measured from the lower edge of the food to the centre of the drive shaft (centre height).  Where installation spaces are narrow, vertical installation of flat motors is possible.
