Our technical team can help to design, modify and reverse engineer to your specification.

R Baker (Electrical) Ltd have extensive experience with float glass technology which has allowed us to work on very large projects, supporting some of the biggest glass names in the industry. Fives Stein, NSG (Pilkington Glass), and Saint Gobain Glass are among the companies which we maintain close ties with across the world.

Our linear motor transformer range

Linear motors utilise transformers to control the input voltage which varies around the world. We manufacture custom build transformers for various uses. Our custom build transformers range from 18VA up to 1MVA, three or single phase to your specific voltage requirements. Our technical team can help to design, modify and reverse engineer to your specification. All our manufactured equipment can be supplied with full working drawings, component lists and written instructions in any language.

All our quality standards and procedures are monitored independently to BS EN ISO 9001:2000 and are subject to regular external and internal audits. We also work with all the leading testing and quality authorities.

Our standard cases are IP23 but we can supply up to IP66 if required. Our float glass customers sometimes require the transformers to be enclosed within the control unit or on the linear motor trolley system.

As well as transformers our engineering team can offer full linear motor systems. This may include trolley systems, control panels or even bespoke cooling systems to ensure they meet specific environments around the world.
