Webcast presenter answers additional questions on motor management tips and tools.
Testing a direct drive and geared rotary servomotor shows there are some significant differences between the two when actually put into practice.
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)
