As the new Ecodesign Directive comes into force throughout Europe in the summer of 2021, the energy efficiency of standard asynchronous motors, in particular those designed for continuous operation, will have to continue to improve. To make the transition a success, Lenze has started by compiling easy-to-understand basic information as well as a complete checklist for OEMs and machine operators.
The biennial co-located events; Drives & Controls, Smart Industry Expo, Fluid Power & Systems, Plant & Asset Management, and Air-Tech Exhibitions – are once again set to return to Birmingham’s NEC between the 21-23 April 2020, alongside MACH 2020.
Leicht Stanzautomation, designer and manufacturer of systems for winding and unwinding strips and wires, has specified STOBER’s SI6 series drive controllers for the latest generation of its automated multiple winders.
Keeping a servo driven system running at peak efficiency is no simple feat. Misunderstanding performance criteria such as misalignment, torque, or RPM can be all it takes to cause a critical and costly failure.
For 21 years, Danny Florence has lived with one hand. But when he became a father, he decided to apply for an Open Bionics Hero Arm. With the help of the maxon driven prosthesis he can now build a strong bond with his son.
Concrete Canvas Ltd has reduced wiring installation costs and has greater flexibility in terms of future expansion plans for machines and additional lines.
In cooperation with German company ISG (Industrial Control Technology), the ISG-CNC core is now implemented in the KEB automation system – with individual possibilities for many industries, from woodworking and robotics, to motion control, CNC and the manufacture of dental prostheses.
maxon motor’s catch up with Philip Norman, from Ross Robotics, who has made his modular robots even more modular.
The UK government’s bold climate-stabilising target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050 would be helped significantly by the adoption of IE5 standards for electric motor efficiency, says David Ede, Business Development Manager at TEC Motors.
