Recently, Motion Tronic have acquired a new agency for VSDs. Although this was exciting news on its own, we were extremely excited to be able to install a powerful Invertek VSD, as a way to kick-off this new chapter and begin our journey with another exceptional product manufacturer.

We are now the official agents of Invertek products in KwaZulu-Natal and have already made our first delivery and installed a huge 200kW drive for an extruder application.

The build, installation and commissioning of this project were seamless and our customer was left with a solution that was capable of exceeding performance expectations. All Invertek drives carry a 2-year warranty, and clients also have access to a 24/7 free support hotline, should they require technical support telephonically.

In factories and industries relating to metals, polymers, concrete, ceramics, food products and modelling clay, extrusion is quite a common process and involves pushing materials through a die. The process can be quite a demanding one, requiring a lot of force to push either hot or cold materials through the desired die.

The powerful (0.75 – 250 kW | 1 – 350 HP) P2 Optidrive is an easy to use VSD that is designed for high performance and was a perfect fit for the client’s needs. It provides sensorless vector control for all motor types, some key features include:

  • Simple PLC functionality
  • Built-in EMC filter
  • Low ambient operation (-10°C)
  • Dedicated hoist mode
  • Integral brake resistor
  • Safe torque off

Some other exciting applications for a high-performance VSD, like the P2 Optidrive, include agriculture, cranes & hoists, general automation, mining and more.

Invertek products are real game-changers at the right price point! To find out more about this exciting brand of VSDs, contact us on 031 701 1620 or email
