Application of low viscosity resin masses

Application of low viscosity resin masses
In the production of electric motors, more precisely in the casting of the coil in the stator, very liquid, low-viscosity materials are processed. A continuous pulsation-free dispensing flow of the material is particularly important here. By trickling or impregnating the rotating drive components, the coils are provided with a protective layer.

When it comes to electric motors what is best, new for old?

When it comes to electric motors what is best, new for old?
To repair or to replace an electric motor is a decision that often crops up in industrial settings and is one that should be given due consideration. Of course, minimising downtime is important, but there are other important factors as well. Thomas Marks, Secretary at AEMT (Association of Electrical & Mechanical Trades ), looks at what considerations should be made when it comes to repairing or replacing electric motors.

Energy saving in mines and quarries

Energy saving in mines and quarries
Most mines and quarries contain a proliferation of electric motors, they vary in size and importance from large machines critical to site safety, to smaller examples that enable basic plant processes. Each one is drawing electricity and unless it is already part of a smart control solution, it could be contributing more towards energy and general cost saving.
