Multimilla Roller Mill with Torque Motors

Torque motors today can be accepted as the latest technological evolution in grain milling, being an alternative to the pulley belt transmission system for roller mills, which has been used for decades… As one of leading examples in the industry, Multimilla Roller Mill with New Generation Torque Motors was displayed at Imas booth, and took great attention during IDMA Istanbul 2024. 

Developed by Imas R&D team, Multimilla Roller Mill can be equipped with torque motors in both its feeding and grinding systems with many benefits. By integrating torque motors, the roller mill offers reduced energy consumption, as well as minimum risk for breakdown, saving from transmission floor in mill buildings, no need for lubrication, etc. 

New Generation Torque Motors are developed by Imas R&D and engineering teams, after a long period of design and implementation. The first reference plant where Multimilla Roller Mills are equipped with New Generation Torque Motors, was built by Imas in Italy which has been running successfuly since 2021.

Murat Apakhan, Imas Deputy General Manager of Production and R&D, said that ‘Torque Motors today introduces major advantages in grain milling. We have been working on torque motors for roller mills in recent years, in order to respond to the industry’s increasing need for enery saving solutions especially in this global competition environment. If we talk about the outputs from our reference plant operating in Italy, we can say that we already observed up to 25% saving in the electricity consumption for roller mills with torque motors. Our tests will be going on one of our another reference flour mill installation in Türkiye, where we will be able to make more detailed energy consumption analysis and comparisons. However, we are now ready to offer roller mills with torque motors, upon request from our valuable customers worldwide.’
