The predecessor of the German company VEM is the VEM VVB association, created in 1948 from VEM Sachsenwerk GmbH (founded in 1886), VEM motors Thurm GmbH (founded in 1908) and VEM motors GmbH (founded in 1938). Since 1961, the products of the association have been equipped with the VEM trademark. In 1990 the association became a joint stock company, which in 1997 was privatized by the Merkle family. In 2011, the transreschAntriebssysteme Berlin GmbH was acquired. Today it is an independent engineering company with factories located in Wernigerode, Zwickau, Dresden, Krauschwitz, Berlin, Piestany and Most (in Slovakia).
Electric motors and open-vortex pumping units. These are standard and special electric motors: three-phase asynchronous high-voltage AC motors with squirrel-cage or phase rotor with various types of cooling and protection; DC motors for installation in automated industrial equipment equipped with a DC electric drive, cranes, diesel locomotives, mining dump trucks, tractors; gear motors for general industrial use with a power of 0.06 - 500 kW.
Asynchronous motors are used in almost all industries. Various types of cooling and protection make them versatile. For example, a three-phase squirrel cage motor with a built-in brake is considered a brake motor. There are also units with a high degree of protection, explosion-proof, resistant to aggressive chemicals, water-cooled, in marine design (for river and sea vessels).
Gear motors are reliable in operation, as they are equipped with bearings for electric motors from well-known manufacturers, which can last up to 20-40 thousand hours without changing the lubricant.
