Motors for axial fans
High inertia motors for driving large axial fans that can withstand the increased temperature rise during start and stall conditions
The high inertia motors are designed for driving large axial fans. Large axial fans are high inertia loads, which mean that motor start times are increased. The high inertia motor is specially designed to withstand the increased temperature rise during start and stall conditions, and have stall times longer than their start times. The high inertia motors utilize optimized rotor bar designs made from suitable materials including higher resistivity copper alloys. The motors have been re-dimensioned to accommodate the temperature rise associated with high inertia starts, and the overall design has been optimized to achieve balance between torque and temperature performance.

Annual Salary Survey
In a year when manufacturing continued to lead the economic rebound, it makes sense that plant manager bonuses rebounded. Plant Engineering’s annual Salary Survey shows both wages and bonuses rose in 2012 after a retreat the year before.
Average salary across all job titles for plant floor management rose 3.5% to $95,446, and bonus compensation jumped to $15,162, a 4.2% increase from the 2010 level and double the 2011 total, which showed a sharp drop in bonus.
