Micromotors in space: engineering new frontiers

Micromotors in space: engineering new frontiers
The Milky Way, the galaxy that holds our solar system, is estimated to be up to 150,000 light years in diameter. Space is vast and enigmatic, making it a focal point for exploration. Studying the mysteries of space requires innovative and robust technology that is up for the challenge. Here Dave Walsha, Sales Manager at EMS, explores the out of this world applications of high performance micromotors.

Three steps to energy efficient motors

Three steps to energy efficient motors
Electric motors are the backbone of manufacturing, but they are also among the most energy-intensive pieces of equipment. More than 65% of electrical energy in industry is consumed by motors, and the annual cost of running one of them can be up to ten times its original price. Here Neil Ballinger, Head of EMEA at EU Automation, shares three tips to make your motor more energy efficient.

Keeping the noise down

Keeping the noise down
The world’s loudest sound was the eruption of the Krakatoa volcano in 1883, which was clearly heard 3,000 miles away - that’s more than the width of the United States. While micromotors won’t reach this extreme volume, their noise can still be problematic, such as in loud medical equipment that triggers patient anxiety. Here, Dave Walsha, Commercial Development Officer at EMS, explores some applications where motors must keep the noise down.

Fundamentals of servo motors in process control

Fundamentals of servo motors in process control
Long takes, when done properly, are masterstrokes of cinema. However, just a single mistake can mean scrapping reams of footage. To ensure filming equipment can keep up with the director’s cinematic vision, cameras must perform precise and perfectly repeatable actions. Here, Dave Walsha, Commercial Development Officer at EMS, explains how servo motors help achieve process precision both on and off camera.
