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.

Variable speed drive liquid ring vacuum pump

Variable speed drive liquid ring vacuum pump
A new development in the world of Liquid Ring Vacuum technology has been announced by Atlas Copco with the launch of its LRP 700-1000 VSD+ range of intelligent liquid ring vacuum pumps. A departure from the classic liquid ring pumps available in the market today, the LRP VSD+ is a compact, high performance, energy efficient system enclosed in a strong, noise-containing canopy.

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.

Industrial motors market analysis and upcoming trends

Industrial motors market analysis and upcoming trends
Due to rapid industrialisation, there has been significant growth in manufacturing industries all around the world. As a result, the demand for industrial motors has witnessed a significant increase over the years. As per industrial motors market analysis, it is expected that the global industrial motors market will reach the total value of $58.9bn by the end of 2019 with an average growth rate of seven percent. In the emerging economies, the increasing demand for motors by downstream industries is going to be a major driver of the industrial motor market.

What is the most effective way to commutate a BLDC motor?

What is the most effective way to commutate a BLDC motor?
Brushless direct current electric motors, or BLDC motors for short, are electronically commutated motors powered by a dc electric source via an external motor controller. Unlike their brushed relatives, BLDC motors rely on external controllers to achieve commutation. Put simply, commutation is the process of switching the current in the motor phases to generate motion.  By Jason Kelly, CUI

Australia’s largest transport infrastructure benefits WEG motors

Australia’s largest transport infrastructure benefits WEG motors
WEG is delivering more than 350 of its class-leading three-phase induction and electric motors to WestConnex, the largest ever transport infrastructure project in Australia and currently one of the world’s greatest engineering projects. The motors, which will be used for smoke extraction within two link tunnels, are designed to withstand a temperature 250ºC for 2 hours in an emergency situation.

High-performance drive controllers for DC motors

High-performance drive controllers for DC motors
Provider of high-performance motion control and positioning systems, Aerotech, has introduced two high-performance single-axis controllers: the digital XC4 and XC4e PWMs. They are suitable for driving brushed or brushless DC motors as well as moving coil actuators and stepper motors. A special feature besides the position-synchronised outputs (PSO) is the HyperWire fibre optic interface.

How important is manufacturing quality?

How important is manufacturing quality?
We exist in a consumer driven world where product development and innovation moves rapidly. In the fight to keep pace, manufacturers can be tempted to compromise on quality, but here, Graham Mackrell, Managing Director of Harmonic Drive UK, has explained why companies need to be stringent and avoid cutting corners.
