Hammond Power Solutions Inc. a leading manufacturer of dry-type transformers, power quality products and related magnetics, recently announced its intention to increase its planned capital program by approximately $40 million over two years.

“HPS continues to experience a very favourable environment where the electrification of our economy continues to drive strong demand in our industry”, said Bill Hammond, CEO of HPS. “These planned capital program investments are expected to be made over the course of 2023 and 2024, and when complete, are expected to increase HPS’ overall sales capacity by approximately $180 million.”

These planned capital investments are focused on areas targeted to increase capacity and reduce lead times for low voltage, power quality and induction heating products. These investments are also expected to support HPS’ supply chain resilience initiatives. HPS intends to focus the capital program primarily in Mexico and the United States. In Mexico, HPS is planning to set up an approximately 80,000 square foot small products facility, while also adding equipment to existing facilities there. HPS also expects to expand its manufacturing capacity at the Mesta location in Pennsylvania, USA, as well as its facility in Guelph, Ontario.”

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
