AC motors are the workhorses of industrial automation. They're robust, easy to use, and offer a wide product breadth. What do you do if they stop working, and you don't have a spare?
Tension control is a niche application that is not easy to implement. Using the right type of motor is the first step to success. Hint: you don't always have to use a servo motor.
Agricultural automation has been a trending topic lately due to rising food inflation. This case study tells the story of an agricultural producer who has successfully improved production efficiency by building in-house automation.
Increasing power efficiency and minimizing the carbon footprint is the trend these days. Do you know how to calculate CO2 emissions from your electric motors, and which types of motors emit less?
Which type of electric motor do you size for your conveyor, XYZ table, or robot? Before you select one, you must understand the characteristics of each type of motor in the market.
When a voltage is applied to an AC induction motor, it runs at a certain speed. Variable speed requirements for AC induction motors are typically fulfilled by a 3-phase motor and an inverter or VFD. This blog post also introduces another option.
The differences between single-phase and three-phase AC induction motors don't stop with the input power supply. There are a few things you need to know when using three-phase AC induction motors in an instantaneous forward/reverse operation.
Knowing how to use a product properly can make a huge difference in its performance and life. For example, knowing how to maintain cast iron pans properly can make them last longer. With electric motors, understanding the factors that affect motor life is the first step to extending life and decreasing costs in the long run.
