Flying large rotors in for fast repair

Flying large rotors in for fast repair
A steam turbine rotor has been airfreighted to Sulzer’s service centre for fast repair, as 150MW generators provide power for around 100’000 homes so minimising down-time is essential to keeping the lights on for the local population. For one power plant in the Philippines, the swift repair of a steam turbine rotor was essential, so it was airfreighted using one of the world’s largest cargo planes, to Sulzer’s service centre in Indonesia, where the repairs were completed within eight weeks.

Predictive maintenance solutions for aircraft engines

Predictive maintenance solutions for aircraft engines
The aviation industry benefits from advanced knowledge of impending events to better plan for corrective or preventive measures. A recent advancement is in the field of optimising overhaul work-scope for improved performance recovery. In a normal operation scenario, aircraft engines are recommended for overhaul when the available performance margins (Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT)) are not sufficient for operation.

Tackling pollution control in diesel generating sets

Tackling pollution control in diesel generating sets
The introduction of Tier 4 and Tier 5 emissions regulations continue to have an impact on manufacturers of diesel engines and the final products in which they are used. Tier 4 has already been implemented for non-emergency generating sets and it seems only a matter of time before they will have to meet Tier 5 requirements. To help manufacturers meet both current and future emissions regulations, Burkert can develop complete dosing packages for selective catalytic reduction (SCR) systems.

Metal Matrix Composites deliver 40% weight saving for electric motors

Metal Matrix Composites deliver 40% weight saving for electric motors
Engineers seeking to significantly improve the efficiency and performance of electric motors could benefit from using Aluminium Matrix Composites (AMCs), according to research from the Innovate UK ‘Make it Lighter with Less’ R&D competition. The project, led by AMC specialist, Alvant, in collaboration with GE Aviation, YASA Motors and the National Composites Centre, achieved a 40% rotor weight saving on an axial flux electric motor while increasing the rotor’s power-to-inertia ratio potential.

Power-dense servo drive reduces wiring and filtering to save space

Power-dense servo drive reduces wiring and filtering to save space
Kollmorgen has announced the new AKD2G Servo Drive, which is a dual-axis AKD2G, one of the most power-dense industrial servo drives on the market. . It substantially reduces mains wiring, fuses, and filtering to save significant panel space and cost. The AKD2G features expandable I/O (without increasing the size), removable memory, dual-channel STO, and the first drive-resident graphic display in the industry.
