ABB’s AXR 5000 and 5800 motors offer more HP (horse power) per pound than conventional TEFC (totally enclosed fan cooled) motors but with a smaller frame size in some power ratings. This helps save space, up to 8 inches in overall length in some cases, which enables more compact installations on oil platforms and in refineries.

The new AXR motors also offer improved cooling, a critical factor to extend the life of the motor. An internal cooling loop circulates air inside the motor, moving heat to the frame. An external fan blows air over the frame to remove the heat.

“The new cooling configuration offers a more thermally equalized motor, eliminating hot spots that have been seen in TEFC motors,” says Charles Blankenship, Large AC Motor Product Manager, ABB. “Better cooling reduces the thermal stresses on the insulation system, which helps improve the motor’s longevity.”

As the main terminal box and auxiliary box can be mounted in several positions, installation and maintenance are easy. This also means fewer spares are needed, which saves money. The rigid frame increases stability so that the motor can meet the stringent API vibration limit specifications.

AXR motors also feature sleeve bearings that operate at cooler temperatures, last longer and are easy to maintain. These motors are available with up to an IP56 rating, for protection against contaminates and dust ingress.

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.
