QuickSilver Controls: NEMA 23 servo motor has improved efficiency, power
QuickSilver Controls Inc. expands its line of servo motors with the QCI-A23L-3. This servo motor provides almost 33% higher power output capability than the similarly sized motor it replaces.
Covina, CA - QuickSilver Controls Inc. expands its line of servo motors with the QCI-A23L-3. This servo motor provides almost 33% higher power output capability than the similarly sized motor it replaces. This power increase comes with an efficiency improvement of approximately 15% over the speed range of the motor. Performance is especially improved at higher speeds. This OEM system (pictured) includes the 48 V SilverDust D2-IG-01 controller which is only 2.75-in. (70 mm) x 3.00-in. (76 mm).
The QCI-23L-3 has :
- 84 oz-in (0.59 Nm) continuous torque;
- 122 oz-in (0.86 Nm) peak torque;
- 80 Watts continuous mechanical power;
- 8,000 count/rev encoder; and
- 4,000 rpm, about twice the speed of most step motors.
With QCI's ability to handle inertial miss-matches of 100:1, this motor is ideal for driving large flywheel loads without additional gearing. The QCI-A23L-3 is an economical solution for motion control applications including semiconductor, packaging, medical and food processing. Software is key to higher efficiency and speed, a company representative told Control Engineering .

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.
