Gears and Bearings
It is important to understand the differences between the usual service conditions most motor designs assume and unusual service conditions that lead to unreliable operation and costly shutdowns
Stepper motor systems deliver more precision than standard variable-speed motors without the expense and complexity of servo motors, and newer high bus voltage options provide additional flexibility. See 5 motor technologies, common uses.
Direct-drive servomotors are becoming more common as range and availability expands for use in many machine and motor applications.
The right insulation system in metal buildings can prevent dire consequences
A team of Texas A&M University researchers are investigating a class of metals, called refractory high entropy alloys (RHEAS), that can withstand higher operating temperatures.
A geared servomotor can be useful for rotary motion technology, but there are challenges and limitations users need to be aware of.
In spite of the losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the geared motors market is expected to have a period of sustained recovery and growth over the next few years.
Size a variable-speed drive (VSD) for the application, and ask if a general-purpose drive will do or if more embedded intelligence is needed. Do you need a VSD, variable frequency drive (VFD) or adjustable speed drive (ASD)? (Trick question)
Purdue University and the University of Notre Dame are pairing their hypersonics research and facilities to improve the next generation of high-speed vehicles capable of flying beyond Mach 5.
Retaining legacy equipment is a cost-effective way to minimize capital expenditure, provided efficiency and reliability can be upheld.
