Danfoss Drives has reached a milestone in the company’s history. Fifty years ago, Danfoss was the first company to mass-produce AC drives. The company is said to be unique in that it has always been 100 percent focused on developing, manufacturing and supplying AC drives. Since 1968, its portfolio of products and services has been designed to maximize process performance, save the most energy and minimize emissions, the company says.
Recognizing and addressing the megatrends affecting the world today, the company is innovating technology that, for example, tackles climate change, helps cope with rapid urbanization, provides successful and sustained water and wastewater management, and bridges the lag between energy generation and consumption.
In addition, the latest trends in automation and connectivity are allowing Danfoss to change the way it works to further drive customer success and provide an ultimate, end-to-end, digital experience.
In 2025, it is estimated that more than 5 billion people (over 50% of the estimated world population) will benefit directly or indirectly from the benefits provided by Danfoss Drives in their everyday lives, the company says.
The installed base of AC drives will help to save the annual equivalent of 60 hours of global energy consumption, it adds.
