Servo motors with larger external mass inertias
The AM8500 servo motor series has four sizes and three lengths with standstill torques from 1.38 to 29 Nm
The AM8500 series of servo motors are suitable for applications with larger external mass inertias like CNC applications in machine tools and woodworking machine. The AM8500 series has four sizes and three lengths with standstill torques from 1.38 to 29 Nm. It also has the One Cable Technology (OCT), which combines power and feedback systems into one motor cable. The increased rotor moment of inertia provides further benefits for applications with demands for large loads and high synchronism. Due to the modified rotor geometry, the moment of inertia is increased, depending on the length, by 100 to 300%.
Annual Salary Survey
After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.
The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
