Vascat's latest addition to its industrial motor portfolio; the new MAC QTW motor range designed specifically for low noise applications, is now supplied by maintenance and repair specialist, CP Automation. The new product launch will be particularly relevant to end of line testing, which relies on silent conditions as part of the analysis of a product.
End of line testing is a critical step in the production process. Defective products are separated from functional units by analysing the products vibro-acoustic behaviour pattern. This data provides crucial information regarding the condition of the product. However, any external ambient noise can corrupt this analysis resulting in unreliable results, which explains why a low-noise motor is required.
"The MAC QTW motors have been designed specifically with test systems in mind," explained Xavier Palomar, sales and marketing manager at Vascat. "We want to increase reliability in end of line testing, and minimise false rejection of products."
"If businesses are rejecting perfectly good products because of false negatives, then money is going down the drain," added John Mitchell, global business development manager. "Confounding motor noise will no longer be an issue with this new range. We are pleased to be maintaining our long standing partnership with Vascat as part of this unique product launch."
MAC QTW motors are liquid-cooled, meaning they have higher efficiency compared with air-cooled motors. This further adds to the cost-savings already gained from reliable end of line testing. Added safety benefits also come from the IP23 protection rating and electrically insulated bearing within the motor.
