Courtesy: WittensteinWittenstein has created the swing servo, also known as the wing motor because of its appearance. The wing motor was created as a customized solution for motor mounting, with this direct drive also being applicable for rollers by fully integrating the motor into the current layout without extending the roll periphery.

The hollow-shaft direct drive wing motor has two swinging stator halves that feature a mounting concept for unique integration and operating scenarios where axial installation and removal in or from a machine are not possible. The split stator contains two parallel, three phase systems which allow for the stator to be joined together in a controlled way. Each stator half contains a water-cooling pipe system made from stainless steel. It prevents damage to the drive due to intense heat stemming from the roll. It can be retrofitted or dismantled at any time for maintenance, and is designed to withstand the harshest of operating environments.

This motor operates the same way as a classic, one-piece direct drive. The wing motor has a very high efficiency and is very low on energy.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
