What Celeroton AG does is already implied in its name: Celeroton comes from the two Latin words celer, which means fast, and rotare: rotating. The company designs and builds ultra-high-speed drive system products including turbo compressors, permanent-magnet motors with high energy-efficiency, small volume and the lowest possible weight as well as speed control electronics for electric motors. Celeroton AG has its headquarters in Volketswil near Zurich. Founded in 2008 as a spin-off company of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich’s (ETHZ) department for power electronics, today Celeroton has become a leading manufacturer of ultra high-speed electrical drive systems reaching speeds up to one million revolutions per minute (rpm).
