A key product of Danfoss’ Editron division, the EM-PMI240 motor is specifically designed for electric or hybrid drivetrains in mobile work machines, buses and marine vessels. The motor offers a power range of 49 to 122 kW, a nominal range speed of 2200 to 8800 rpm and a maximum speed of up to 9200 rpm.

The EM-PMI240 is the third product to be mass-produced at the Nanjing plant since its opening, following fuel cell air compressors and electric drive systems.

In just eight months, Danfoss’ Editron team designed and built the assembly line at the factory, including a robotic assembly line and an offline semi-automatic assembly line. In addition, the company also implemented an entire digital traceability system intended to guarantee the quality control and efficient operation of the production process.

“The Nanjing plant is crucial for our rapidly growing electric motor business,” said Kimmo Rauma, vice president of Danfoss’ Editron division. “Following the successful launch of the EM-PMI240, we look forward to meeting even more customer needs around the world with our enhanced footprint and global reach.”
