September 2019: Rotek Motoren provides for aromatic coffee

The Dutch company Giesen produces high-quality handmade coffee roasters.

Many factors come into play when it comes to producing aromatic coffee from green coffee beans. Experienced master roasters know their bean varieties inside out and select appropriate parameters for the roasting process.

The right cooling is important after the roasting process. The roasting process must be ended abruptly once the optimum roasting time for the coffee has been reached. The coffee is rapidly cooled down to temperatures below 40 degrees Celsius, thus ending the roasting process.

In the Giesen coffee roasters, a Robase motor with spur gears is used as the drive for the agitator finger and a Romotion with low-cost electronics is used as a fan motor, providing an optimal airflow.

July 2019: Food for bees

This year we have started to make our company premises animal-friendly and blend in with nature.

The first step was a wild flower meadow behind the building. It now needs to grow. We will also soon plant four apple trees in it. In the front of the building there are now shrubs like catnip, evening primrose and others that provide food for insects.

Some shrubs, another apple tree and ground cover will be added in the autumn.

September 2018: 120 000 new employees

Bees are not only important in terms of honey and other bee products. Together with other insects they are pollinating our useful plants and wild plants. But the total number of beehives decreases. As a result, we set up bee hives on our factory roof. The beekeeper of Bremerhaven Andreas Bredehorn provides them ( Now we have original Rotek honey.  It is also gratifying that we continue a Treusch family tradition. Our grandfather Wilhem Treusch had four beehives in his beekeeping in Überau.

August 2018: Rotek offers a substitute for Berger Lahr RSM synchronous motors

Following the takeover of the drive specialist Berger Lahr by Schneider Electric (now Schneider Electric Motion Germany) in 2000, its focus has gradually shifted. Now it will stop production of the larger, so-called packaged synchronous motors in the RSM 828/3 to 884/4 series.

Rotek has suitable drives for customers who are looking for a virtually identical substitute. The reversible synchronous motors (RSM) from Schneider Electric correspond to the following Robase models:

828/3 = Robase 36
842/3 = Robase 46
856/3 = Robase 66
884/3 = Robase 86

The G gears from Schneider Electric (Berger Lahr) correspond to the G gears from Rotek. If a particularly energy-efficient or smooth-running motor is required, a Rosync or Roslyde can be used instead of the Robase.

Januar 2018: Rotek is setting up a warehouse in Bremerhaven with SPG motors

There is a change in the trade goods business unit.

We were looking for a solution to be able to continue to supply our regular customers after the Korean motor manufacturer SPG shut down their European headquarters in Amsterdam.

We have now set up an extensive warehouse with SPG products in Bremerhaven with the help of a local logistics partner.

This way, we can continue to offer our contract customers short delivery times.

The Rotek team celebrated an anniversary on 14 February again. To mark the company’s 15th anniversary there was a delicious cake that also looked good. It was really tough to make the first cut.
