09 December 2016 Helicopter transports NOVA air conditioners for ebm-papst in Hagenmoos

Some situations require new ways of thinking – and setting up the air conditioners on the roof of the ebm-papst location in Hagenmoos/St. Georgen was one of them! The factory hall is simply too large for conventional setup with a crane. They would have had to build an access road especially for the crane. Instead, they decided to transport the five air conditioners to the roof via helicopter.

24 November 2016 New drive controller from ebm-papst

Modern intra-logistics applications such as cross belt sorters, warehouse shuttles or driver-free transport systems, as well as the widest variety of applications in automation technology need innovative electronics solutions. The new drive controller VARIOTRONIC VTD-24.40-K4 from ebm-papst, for the position-controlled operation of BLDC engines with a distinctive overload capacity, meets exactly these requirements.

21 September 2016 System solutions for medical technology

COMPAMED 2016 – High-Tech Solutions for Medical Technology is an international meeting point for manufacturers involved in medical preproduction. ebm-papst St. Georgen GmbH & Co. KG and ebm-papst Zeitlauf GmbH & Co. KG will be presenting their products and medical technology applications in Düsseldorf between 14 - 17/11/2016 in Hall 08b, stand H27.

19 September 2016 ebm-papst is expanding the S-Panther series

Efficient cooling with low energy use The world's leading trade fair for electronic components, systems and applications is taking place in Munich under the motto "inside tomorrow". From November 8 - 11, 2016, the motor and fan specialist ebm-papst ( will be presenting its products and applications from its motor and compact fan program in hall B1, stand 261.

15 July 2016 New sales structure ensures proximity to the customer.

The ebm-papst business unit Industrial Drive Engineering is still growing. A sales network was established in April 2016 in order to offer even more proximity to the customer in the region.

08 July 2016 Efficient cooling with low energy use

Reliable cooling of all components is essential for compact, highly integrated electronics in the fields of IT, telecommunication and network technology, as well as in inverters for the automation of solar plants. High packing density requires a high airflow rate and a large increase in pressure in order to dissipate the heat. The specialist in fan and drive technology, ebm-papst, now introduces the 8300 N, a fan which is up to 8 dB(A) quieter than its predecessor.

26 April 2016 Two opposing fans with high flow rate and efficiency

Ø 172 × 132 mm counter-rotating fan with large pressure increase. Compact high-performance machines (e.g., for highly integrated electronics in the fields of IT, telecommunications, network technology and renewable energy) require cool air that reliably reaches internal components requiring cooling. In some cases, conventional single fans are too weak.

25 April 2016 “Tandem fan” for more air throughput

80 × 80 × 80 cooling cube more efficient than two single fans. Modern servers, routers, network storage and telecommunications systems with high packing density – and hence high air internal resistance – require highly efficient cooling. Even high-performance fans quickly reach their limits.

11 March 2016 ebm-papst opens building phase in St. Georgen

After a construction period of twelve months, ebm-papst has held a celebration to open the first new part of their building work in St. Georgen-Hagenmoos. This technological leader which produces fans and motors has invested around €5m into a new production area spanning 3,800 m2.
