Digital transformation is top of mind for business leaders, solutions providers and consultants these days. The multi-trillion-dollar predictions on everything from IOT to AI/Machine Learning are indeed staggering to think about. That said, when it comes to manufacturing systems our recent experience suggests that organizations are still cautious when it comes to investment and taking their first steps into the digital world.

 

 

 

The United Nations estimates that world population will climb from 7 billion to 9 billion by 2050. This means higher demand for food for the growing population, and more work for the farmers to produce more food. And they will need fertilizers to do it, which is where potash comes in, as 96% of the world’s production of potash is used in fertilizers.

 

 

 

A safety light curtain can help avoid serious accidents on the factory floor by ensuring that a potentially hazardous machine ceases operation before a person enters the hazard zone. However, this is only the case if the light curtain has been set up at a sufficient distance relative to the time it takes for the machine to stop.

 

 

 

There’s a contaminant that has long troubled water and wastewater operations, and you won’t find it in the water. Harmonic distortion is like a pollutant on a power line. It can cause electrical equipment to act erratically or shut off, resulting in unplanned downtime. And it can frustrate workers by making water treatment systems more difficult to optimize.

Many shops shy away from manufacturing jobs involving parts that require some form of gear machining operations. These shops believe that such work is very complicated and requires specialized expertise and equipment, including individual machines dedicated to gear skiving or hobbing.

 

 

 

It can feel like you can do anything with your smart machines today thanks to the near infinite potential of data, connectivity and IoT technologies. But one thing can still hold them back: their computing assets.

 

 

 

Food and pharmaceutical makers can better protect the integrity of their products using new hygienic industrial control hardware from Rockwell Automation. The new Allen-Bradley Kinetix VPH hygienic servo motors and a new stainless-steel version of the Allen-Bradley PanelView Plus 7 graphic terminal both help minimize contamination during production and ease compliance.

The savings keep coming when you use a variable frequency drive (VFD) with synchronous bypass and transfer capabilities. It can help reduce up-front capital costs and long-term energy and maintenance costs in various motor-control applications. And along with the cost savings, the VFD can help you increase efficiency and achieve more flexible process control.

A VFD with synchronous capabilities allows you to operate one motor continuously with variable speed control or to start and synchronize multiple motors. It also gives you the ability to soft start large motors.

Motor Feature


As a leading manufacturer of drive technology, we also supply mechanical variable-speed gearmotors. For both series, VARIBLOC®and VARIMOT®, you can easily infinitely adjust the speed mechanically using a handwheel or remote control.

Speeds of up to 45 kW can be easily adjusted mechanically

Mechanical variable-speed gearmotors are simple yet robust drive components that represent an inexpensive alternative in many materials handling and process engineering applications. This is because you control the speed infinitely variably yourself: mechanically using a handwheel or via remote control. The process does not involve any costly control cabinets or frequency inverters at all.
