Looking Beyond the Motor for Increased Drive Train Efficiencies

3 Jan , 2017  

The importance of drive train efficiency Control Engineering, December 6, 2016 Rather than breaking down the drivetrain into different sections and focussing on a single component, such as the motor, Bauer believes that a view should be taken of a single, ‘electro-mechanical’ package – one which must be fully integrated to achieve maximum performance. Despite […]

Updated Minimum Electric Motor Efficiency Standards

22 Oct , 2014  

Nearly half of the electricity consumed in the manufacturing sector is used for powering motors, such as for fans, pumps, conveyors, and compressors. About two thirds of this machine-drive consumption occurs in the bulk chemicals, food, petroleum and coal products, primary metals, and paper industries.
