Permanent magnet motors
NovaTorque has expanded their Electronically Commutated Permanent Magnet (ECPM) motors to include 3 hp and 5 hp models. They are designed to be more energy efficient and have high power density.
NovaTorque's family of Gen2.0 PremiumPlus+ Electronically Commutated Permanent Magnet (ECPM) motors will soon be available in high speed 3hp and 5hp 2400 rpm (maximum speed 3600 rpm) models. Also available in 3 hp and 5 hp 1800 rpm models (maximum speed 2700 rpm), NovaTorque motors utilize low-cost ferrite magnets in a flux-focusing design.
Driven by variable frequency drives, Gen2.0 PremiumPlus+ ECPM motors boast motor-only rated point efficiencies of 93.0 and 92% percent for 3 hp and 5hp versions respectively, far exceeding the levels achieved with induction motors. Additionally, unlike induction motors, NovaTorque’s PremiumPlus+ ECPM motors maintain their high efficiency and high torque over a very broad speed and load range.
NovaTorque PremiumPlus+ motors are packaged in standard NEMA frame sizes and mounting dimensions for easy substitution. Due to their high power density, NovaTorque motors are available both in the mounting frame size typical for induction motors, as well as one frame size smaller.

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.
