Each motor type has its advantages and drawbacks, so it is important to comparatively assess different motor technologies.
ABB has launched a full range of stainless steel IEC Food Safe motors and mounted ball bearings designed for the harsh washdown conditions in the food industry.
The IE4 synchronous motors are economical due to the use of permanent magnets in the rotor while high efficiency remains unchanged, even during partial load operation and at low speeds.
The EC-I 30IE motor features a 5-wire connection to simplify implementation and still give a wide functionality.
The frameless design of the motors makes it possible to assemble individual parts directly into a robotic joint.
NORD DRIVESYSTEMS' permanent-magnet synchronous motors without cooling fins achieve level IE4/super premium efficiency.
A servo motor and gearhead combination released by maxon motor Australia can produce 364 Nm with a peak torque rating at the output of 686 Nm.
ABB integrates Baldor Electric under the ABB brand.
ABB has achieved almost 100% energy efficiency with its latest synchronous motor.
Bonfiglioli is expanding its New Zealand branch with a 25% larger warehouse, workshop and freight transitioning area as part of an overall plan to streamline logistics, optimise stock availability and better serve customer needs.
NORD Drivesystems has expanded its IE3 premium efficiency motor range to also include smaller motor powers.
Intelligent safety brakes ready for Industry 4.0 are now available.
Supply voltage phase imbalance and harmonics can have a significant effect on the life of a three-phase motor, making the case for supply monitoring and filtering to improve efficiency and reduce downtime.
The ABB SynRM motor features a magnet-free rotor design and advanced software to offer a complete optimised solution.
Increased energy efficiency requirements for drive systems have led to alternative motor technologies taking up the competition with traditional induction motors and AC drive applications.
