Their specialist will help you maximise the performance of your application with the right electrical motor. Among different brands, EBI is a distributor of WEG and Techtop electric motors.

Electric Motor Types

At EBI, their first corporate branch of 1947 specialized in Electric Motor Repair and electric motor distribution and retail. Today our electric motor repair shop has grown with Dynamic Balancing services. In the field of electric motors, there are many different types of electric motors for many sorts of applications. Choosing the right electric motor for the right purpose is not always easy and EBI Electric's representatives will assist you in finding what you need in terms of electric motor. To start with, frame size, motor rpm and horsepower are three characteristics that will help size the right motor. Then, the type of application where the electric motor will be used, wether a commercial or industrial application, must be considered. Other characteristics and terminology needs to be discussed and EBI's representatives will help you demistify them :

  • -Single-phase motor
  • -Three-phase motor
  • -NEMA motor versus IEC metric motor
  • -NEMA Premium motors verus IE3 regulation motors
  • -Electric motor enclosure : TEAO (Totally Enclosed Air Over), Totally Enclosed Fan Cooled), Open Drip Proof motor
  • -AC or DC electric motor
  • -Servo motor
  • -Explosion proof motor
  • -Motor enclosure material : rolled steel, cast iron or aluminum
  • -Pump electric motors
  • -Permanent magnet electric motors

 

Purchase the Electric Motor that You Need

One of the first features to consider is the electric motor load that will be required : will it be constant torque load, variable torque load or constant power loads?

The type of electric motor isolation must also be considered. Do you need a class A, B, F or a class H motor such as a High Temperature Motor for high temperature environments such as ovens or kilns. For example, since 1995, EBI manufactures and distributes the EBI Dry Kiln Duty Motor which is a high temperature electric motor for lumber dry kilns. These high temperature motors are certified class H. 

Servomotor, Gearbox and Other Electric Motor Auxiliary Equipment

Aside from distributing electric motors, EBI also specializes in the retail of equipment that control and manage the speed of electric motors such as variable frequency drives and electric motor gearboxes. In fact, EBI Electric was the first authorized Canadian Yaskawa distributor that offers a great line of VFDs and servomotors.

Just like a typical electric motor, servomotors, gearboxes, soft starters and variable frequency drives must be considered according to the application they serve in order to ensure lifespan and optimal efficiency. EBI Electric specializes in advising our customer about choosing the right electric motor or auxiliary equipment.

Having a workforce that’s well trained on current technologies and equipment is critical for any manufacturer. When workers lack necessary skill sets, they are more likely to make expensive mistakes that result in costly downtime. Without proper training, employees are also less productive and have lower job satisfaction. They often feel as though they aren’t moving forward in their career and get discouraged. In addition, the correlation between well-trained workers and a safer manufacturing environment shouldn’t be overlooked.

Clearly, the importance of industrial training must be a key consideration for employers. Unfortunately, developing a workforce with necessary knowledge isn’t always easy. A variety of factors are creating a serious skills gap, and many companies are struggling to find ways to address the challenges.

What drives the requirement for accurate, high-quality labels? With so much hanging in the balance for manufacturers and retailers competing on a global scale, there's no good reason to ignore the need for label quality. Mislabeled packaging could have consequences that range from wasted product to (potentially severe) consumer health issues.

Let's take a look at four major areas that illustrate the importance of ensuring the accuracy and legibility of product and packaging labels and discuss a solution that can help avoid errors.

Area 1: General product traceability

Product traceability, in a general sense, is essential for consumer safety, regulatory compliance and overall quality perception. If there’s a problem with a product, traceability allows the consumer, retailer or another entity to quickly locate and segregate defective products in the event of a recall.
