The heart of our MICROMOT precision tools for 115V is a comparatively more expensive direct current (DC) special motor.

In relation to its size, the permanent magnet technology makes it very powerful, quiet and long-lasting. Due to its very high efficiency, this motor requires considerably less power for the same power output from the socket outlet than other commonly used motors.

Of course, when utilizing these motors our first concern is to produce small, slender tools with high performance. The outstanding ratio of current consumption:power output also contributes significantly to energy saving, thereby also protecting our environment!
