TRAMAG Matching Transformer in Protective Housing for Special Purpose Machinery
Highlights of the week
Mechanical engineering is a mainstay of the manufacturing industry in Europe. The worldwide turnover with machines amounted to almost 3 trillion euros in 2021. Around 30%* of this, i.e. around 900 billion euros, was generated in Europe.
The mechanical engineering industry is not only a very important employer with many highly qualified jobs, but with its innovative machines and systems it also enables more efficient, more economical and more environmentally compatible production processes and thus ultimately correspondingly demanded products for further use in industry and private households.
The industrial segment of special-purpose machinery manufacturing is characterized by technologically complex, productive, precise and largely automated machines that require considerable investment. In order to enable reliable continuous operation of these systems, the requirements for the design of matching transformers are growing accordingly. These serve to adapt the local mains voltage to the required operating voltage of the machines.
Individual solutions from our TRAMAG specialists
In the project presented today, a 3-phase transformer specially adapted to different voltage levels according to EN61558-2-1 with 160kVA power supplies the electrical components in the customer’s special machine. One of the distinguishing features of this TRAMAG transformer is that it has been designed with two galvanically separated secondary windings for different voltage levels and power ratings on the output side. This makes it possible for the customer to operate another electrical consumer with different voltage levels with one transformer, in addition to the machine operation.
Furthermore, the machine connected to our transformer is electrically safely supplied by integrated output circuit breakers and a UL-compliant insulation system. The special protective housing – with integrated external lifting points and additional transport safety lugs on the side – ensures safe logistical transport and achieves increased protection against foreign bodies and contact at the installation site.
For years, customers all over the world have trusted in our TRAMAG solutions competence for transformers, chokes and filters. Our employees in development and production are justifiably proud of being able to make an important contribution to the success of our customers in their markets with their work for TRAMAG products in the applications of mechanical and plant engineering .

Quality is when your QMB goes “High-Five-S” with you
We know where quality must ultimately be demonstrated and proven: In the product, in the customer’s application. But where does quality begin? On the one hand in technical development and on the other hand in the organization of workplaces in production. Employees who keep their workstations tidy maintain an overview, have access to the right tools at all times and can work on the product efficiently and with quality assurance.Learn more
Information visit to TRAMAG by the VDI District Association of Bavaria North-East
On the afternoon of St Nicholas’ Day, the TRAMAG plant in Fürth hosted an information event for members of the Association of German Engineers (VDI) from the Bavarian North-East District Association. Due to the regional proximity and also taking TRAMAG’s 100th anniversary as an occasion, we received a request from the Nuremberg VDI local group to visit our plant, which we were very happy to fulfil.Learn more
“Quality is when the Customer comes back and not the Product”
The most technically innovative or economically attractive product in an application is worth nothing if the quality is not right. Not only would the failure of the product itself have to be lamented, but possibly also further damage to the entire application.Learn more
