The best choice is solid rotor technology
It’s simple. Eliminate the gearbox and gain adjustable speed for all turbo applications. A solid rotor induction motor is a type of induction machine with a non-laminated rotor construction. The advantage of the stiff construction is unmatched stability and balance, which offers exceptional rotating system reliability for all types of turbo applications.
Solid rotor induction motors – up to 15,000 rpm
The Switch turbo induction motors replace a mechanical gearbox by an electrical one to give you full speed control for your system. By integrating an electrical motor with the load machinery, you get unmatched space and weight savings.Read more

MAN Diesel & Turbo, Switzerland
Swiss MAN TURBO chose The Switch integrated motor for a high-power compressor of 8 MW, 10,000–12,000 rpm to be used in a gas application that survives subsea installation with aggressive gases.
Runtech of Finland is placing continuous volume orders for high-speed solid rotor induction motors and The Switch drives to be used in its paper machine vacuum systems that are run at over 10,000 rpm.
German FIMA Maschinenbau GmbH, the first chemical industry reference for The Switch, ordered a series of 200 kW high-speed motors for turbo blowers with a speed of nearly 11,000 rpm.
