Transvaal Electric Motors (Pty) Ltd.
Electric Motor Manufacturers
TransVaal Electric Motors (TVE) is an electrical engineering company, founded in 1939 and engaged in the design, development, manufacture and repair of rotating electrical machines.
Established to service the needs of the burgeoning coal mining and gold mining industries in South Africa in the late 1930’s the company is still one of the worlds leading manufacturers of AC cage induction motors and DC electric motors and generators for mining, railway transport and industrial applications. Custom built and standard range motors are offered in power outputs from 0.4 Kilowatts to 2000 Kilowatts. The company manufactures electric motors used in a variety of applications in countries as diverse as South Africa, the USA, Australia and China.
The company has five factories situated in Johannesburg, South Africa and employs approximately 200 personnel including engineers, draughtsmen and skilled artisans. All five factories are well equipped, with the company just having completed a brand new 10 000 square ft state of the art Webber Street repair facility with 20 ton lifting capacity and state of the art test bay.
TVE has the facilities to design and manufacture all the components used in an electric motor: these include a lamination punching plant, a large machine shop, AC and DC winding shops, VPI equipment, baking ovens, burn out ovens, a welding department, hydraulic presses and spray booths.
All processing is controlled by a proven quality control system - the company is ISO 9001 accredited for the design, manufacture and repair of electric motors. Our head office is situated at our Simmonds Street complex, which is also our AC division although design and administrative offices are also located at the Richard Street DC machine factory.
Our products are renowned for their robust fabricated steel frame construction and are well suited for operation in harsh environments and rigorous duty cycles where standard motors are likely to fail prematurely.
