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
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.
