As the Covid-19 pandemic spreads, the spirit of teamwork and support that underlines the Parvalux culture continues as strongly as ever.

Our first priority is of course the safety of our staff, customers and suppliers and early on in the Covid-19 pandemic, our parent company, maxon, was very clear about the way forward. Accordingly, we cancelled travel arrangements and restricted access to external visitors to our offices and factories. The nature of our business already requires us to maintain a high degree of cleanliness and we’ve provided our staff with additional guidance on hand-washing and social distancing, as well as increasing the availability of hygiene equipment and supplies. If you’ve been affected by any of these measures, thank you for your flexibility and patience.

Thanks to a Herculean effort by our colleagues in the IT team, those of us that are able to work from home now currently do so but in order to keep production going and as designated key workers, we need to have people operating on-site. Every day presents a new challenge and we’ll continue to adapt our plans to make sure everyone is as safe as possible, as we fulfil critical orders.

Our customers, understandably, are as concerned as we are about managing their own response to this unprecedented crisis and we are communicating with them regularly by telephone and email.

We all face a hugely difficult and worrying situation but through mutual support, good communication and common sense, we will prevail, together.

Stay safe and we’ll provide updates as the situation changes.

We are very pleased to announce that Nick Parker has joined Parvalux Electric Motors Ltd as its new Managing Director. In this role Nick will be responsible for driving the strategy for revenue and profit growth and the operational development plans for the business as well as working as part of the maxon senior management team to complete the integration of Parvalux into the maxon Group.

Nick brings a wealth of experience working at senior level in a range of technology-led industries including medical systems, aerospace, oil and gas, electronics manufacturing and hydraulics products. He started his career in technical and R&D management, moving into operations and commercial director roles and has most recently been Managing Director of a manufacturing business, based in Dorset UK and supplying to global OEMs as well as smaller niche customers.

Swiss manufacturer maxon, the specialist for mechatronic drive systems, acquired the British-based Parvalux Electric Motors Ltd in December 2018. Parvalux has more than 70 years of experience in the development and production of brushed DC motors, AC motors, and gearheads. The company has c. 200 employees at four production sites in the UK. Parvalux generates revenues of £23 million annually, with just over 40% being exported around the world. The acquisition has opened up exciting new markets and sales channels opportunities for Parvalux and maxon, as well as for the sharing of technology, product development and manufacturing process expertise within the broader maxon Group.

We would like to thank Nick Spetch for his services over the last 11 years and look forward to our further close collaboration. We are delighted that Nick Parker has joined to lead the team at this exciting time.

Parvalux announces relocation to Poole

Wallisdown-based Parvalux Electric Motors Ltd has announced an agreement in principle to purchase the 8.75-acre former Siemens site in Sopers Lane, Poole.

Construction of a 140,000 square feet factory & office headquarters is due to commence later this year, subject to planning permission and completion of a land quality assessment. 

Parvalux Managing Director, Nick Spetch says, “Parvalux has been a major employer in the Bournemouth area since 1957 and this is an incredibly exciting move. We chose Sopers Lane because it uniquely enables amalgamation of our three existing factories to create a single purpose-built manufacturing centre and importantly, is easily accessed by our highly-skilled workforce. Following hot on the heels of the acquisition of Parvalux in December 2018, this significant investment underlines our parent company, maxon’s commitment to the local economy and to growing the global Parvalux brand.”

Are you considering a DC motor for your next project? If so, our specialists are on hand to provide you with all the help and advice you need before investing. A DC motor is powered through direct current, meaning the current flows in one direction only. Parvalux stocks a range of DC electric and geared motors in PMDC and BLDC formats.

Below are some advantages of DC motors that you should consider:

Good speed control

DC motors offer highly controllable speed. By changing the armature or field voltage it’s possible to achieve wide speed variation and with this level of controllability, DC motors offer the precision required by a wide range of industry applications.

High torque

A DC motor also offers a high starting torque, which makes it perfect for use in applications that are designed to move heavier loads, such as wiper systems and in industrial automation applications, such as conveyor systems or materials handling equipment. The consistent drive power that DC motors deliver means they’re ideal for maintaining a constant torque whilst an application is in use, making them an excellent choice for a geared motor solution.

Seamless operation

As DC motors operate with high levels of controllable power across a range of speeds, they offer the benefit of seamless operation. In some industries, it is vital that DC motors can start and stop efficiently to cope with the requirements of the application. If you are looking for a solution that offers rapid acceleration, an option to reverse direction and start/stop efficiency, a DC motor is a good choice.

Free from harmonics

In any electric power system, a harmonic is a voltage or current at a multiple of the fundamental frequency of the system, typically produced by the action of non-linear loads such as rectifiers or saturated magnetic devices. Harmonic frequencies in the power grid can be the cause of power quality problems and harmonics in some AC motors can cause torque pulsations, resulting in a decrease in torque. DC motors are free from issues associated with harmonics.
