Encoders drive performance improvements of motors

Encoders drive performance improvements of motors
Haozhi Mechanical and Electrical (Haozhi), based in China, is a company focused on direct-drive technology for machine tool and robotics applications. Direct-Drive (DD) motors are electric motors that directly transmit power to the application without the use of mechanical reduction elements such as gears, pulleys, chains or belts. DD technology for linear motors and rotary tables has matured in recent years.

Gearing up for predictive maintenance

Gearing up for predictive maintenance
If predictions are correct, by 2021 25 billion devices will be connected to the Internet of Things (IoT). Here, Marek Lukaszczyk, European Marketing Manager at WEG explains where geared motor maintenance fits into this paradigm. Geared motor units are the drive technology heavyweights needed to handle a large amount of data, power and torque. They provide the necessary motion sequences in machines and systems, helping to ensure that production lines run smoothly. If there is a fault with a geared motor, the knock-on effects can be very costly for businesses.

Allspeeds supplies 50kW Kopp Variator for Phosphate Mine

Allspeeds supplies 50kW Kopp Variator for Phosphate Mine
Engineering systems integrator, Allspeeds, is manufacturing a 50kW Kopp Variator for phosphate production in Jordan. The new machine replaces an existing variator that has been in service for over 20 years for conveyor control at the plant. Kopp Variators are mechanical variable speed drives used to control the speed of industrial machinery. Suitable for production machinery that relies on the ability to change speeds frequently, variators are constant power torque converters with extremely accurate speed holding and resetability, unlike invertor and gearbox controls.
