A Comprehensible Guide to Servo Motor Sizing
The Importance of servo motor sizing should not be underestimated according to Wilfried Voss, author of A Comprehensible Guide to Servo Motor Sizing.
The Importance of servo motor sizing should not be underestimated according to Wilfried Voss, author of A Comprehensible Guide to Servo Motor Sizing . Proper motor sizing will not only result in significant cost savings by saving energy, reducing purchasing and operating costs, reducing downtime, etc.; it also helps the engineer design better motion control systems. Knowledge of mechanical systems and their influence on motor speed, inertia and torque requirements, however, seems to have declined in a world where aspects like tuning and programming, seem to be the main focus. This book focuses primarily on servo motor sizing and it documents in detail the inertia and torque calculations for standard mechanical components and the motor selection process.
Wilfried Voss is the President of Copperhill Technologies Corporation, a company specializing in motor sizing software development for various motor manufacturers all over the world. In addition, Copperhill Technologies sells user licenses of its generic motor sizing program, VisualSizer-Professional.

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.
