Vacuum Cleaner

AMETEK Floorcare & Specialty Motors has been manufacturing a wide range of commercial vacuum and commercial floorcare products for over 60 years.

You will find our motors in floor scrubbers, wide-area vacuums, back-pack vacuums, commercial canister and upright vacuums, ride on sweepers, carpet extractors and many of the other floor cleaning equipment types.

As the true innovators of the industry the Lamb brand remains a durable and dependable product. Over the years we continue to drive technology in this industry to serve the needs of our customers. We produce best in class motors and motor products.
In 2008 AMETEK Floorcare & Specialty Motors launched a series of new products referred to as our 8.4 and 6.6 models. The models brought a variety of new features to address some of the shortcomings of series universal brush vacuum motors. 

Efficiency 
One in particular is our low voltage motors. For years the efficiency was stuck in the 30s. Our motor developers drove that efficiency up into the mid 40s. Our high efficient designs give precious amps and amp/hours back to the OEM engineers to use for other elements of their products. 

Wet Bearing Protection 
Another key feature is the wet bearing protection. We can’t count the number of times that the sales people from our OEMs have asked us when we were going to create a wet pickup vac motor where the motor does not fail because the grease washed out of the bearing. That protection is now in found in these motors. 

Longer Life 
Life of traditional motors has always hovered around 500-1000 hours. With the new Ametek eternity brush technology we are now production motors that last 1500-3000 hours on a single set of brushes. 

You will not find these features in any other manufacturer’s motors.
