Dear Customers and Business Partners,

Our newsletter unfortunately starts with sad news.

He will be missed

Paul Hasselbach was born in 1933 and continued his training to become an electrical engineering master tradesman after training as a motor winder at Lloyd Werft Bremerhaven in 1948.

He founded the company Hasselbach & Kausch Elektrokleinmotoren in 1984. With great diligence and expertise, he built up the business, which we acquired in 2000 and have continued to run under the ROTEK name since then. Paul Hasselbach was still on hand to offer support and advice many years after the transfer of business ownership. We are very grateful to him for this.

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.

Rotek has reached the jury stage of the Grand Prix for Small and Medium-sized Companies 2018

On 9 May, Rolf, Klaus and Wilfried Treusch in Bremerhaven received a certificate from Detlef Kahrs on behalf of the Oskar Patzelt Foundation. This is because Rotek has been included in the “jury list” for this award.

This means that Rotek in Bremerhaven is one of the companies to reach the 2nd and penultimate round of the competition for the Grand Prix for Small and Medium-sized Companies 2018.

Following the submission of the jury documents by the closing date of 15 April 2018 and then a rough check of the company details, 742 companies (2017: 839) have reached the penultimate round of the competition - the so-called "jury list”. On the basis of the jury documents, the some 100 jurors from the twelve regional juries and the final jury make their decisions on the “finalists”, the “award winners” and the “special award winners” over the course of these days. >>

Alexander Steinbrenner is leaving - but not completely

Once again, a longstanding employee is taking his well-deserved retirement. Alexander Steinbrenner, our specialist for gear assembly and final testing, started working for the company in 1995 while it was still owned by Paul Hasselbach.

He has worked closely with our synchronous motors for over 20 years and it is fair to say that if he has had a motor in his hand then it can be delivered with a clear conscience. We are delighted that Alexander Steinbrenner will stay with us, albeit only as a consultant, and can pass on his extensive experience to younger employees.
