Small-Sized, High-efficiency Servomotor HF-JP Series from Mitsubishi ElectricSmall-Sized, High-efficiency Servomotor HF-JP Series - Mitsubishi Electric is at the forefront of technologies improving the efficiency of  electrical energy generation. Mitsubishi has developed low inertia and high speed servo motors using joint wrap core technology. With joint wrap, the iron core is split like a hinge, allowing coils to be wrapped around the core more densely, resulting in improved motor efficiency and compactness. It produces a high-density magnetic field for compact motors which conserves energy. Thanks to this technology, using flier winding machines, it is possible to manufacture high speed, high density motors, in less manufacturing space.

The HF-JP series is a low inertia, high speed servo motor having a rated speed of 3000r/min and maximum speed of 6000 r/min. As compared to the previous model HC-LP series, HF-JP series motors are 68% smaller in size and weigh 64% less. With new winding technology, the peak torque of the motor has also been increased to 400%.  With these motors there is no longer a need to select a larger size motor to accommodate faster acceleration speeds. Ripple torques have been reduced by increasing the precision of the inner diameter of the stator compared with that of conventional manufacturing technology. HF-JP series motors are equipped with a newly developed small-sized optical absolute encoder.

The HF-JP series motors are well suited for high-throughput positioning and high acceleration/deceleration, due to the use of internal magnets, which strengthen the rotor structure and allow for higher speeds up to 6000r/min, making them suitable for packaging and printing machines. The HF-JP series will be compatible with global standards EN, UL and c-UL.

With these motors machine makers can build compact, high efficiency, high speed machines.

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.
