 A Change in Speed Control Ramps Up Production for Steel Company

TSA Manufacturing in Omaha, Neb., provides steel products and services to the construction, precast concrete, and structural steel markets. One machine—a thread roller that makes long steel threaded rods up to 1 in. diameter used in bridge construction—required extensive maintenance and replacement of worn-out parts, and was out of service for repairs too often.

 Improving Motion Network Noise Immunity

Most modern motion control systems employ Ethernet-based networks to transmit data among various electrical and electronic components.

 Small Servomotors for High-Precision Motion

Semiconductor processing equipment is a notoriously demanding application for motion control engineers. Extreme precision, reliability and smoothness are absolute requirements. At the same time, space is at a premium.

 Yaskawa Releases the MV1000 Medium Voltage AC Drive

MV1000 drives combine compact modular design, high efficiency, low harmonics, and industry leading MTBF into a medium voltage drive solution that is compatible with Yaskawa’s popular 1000 series low voltage AC drive products.

 VFD's Can Be Used to Improve Input Power Factor

In very basic terms, power factor is expressed as the ratio of real power, kilowatts (kW), to apparent power, kilovolt-amperes (kVA). A desirable ratio of near unity results when the real power and apparent power are nearly equivalent. Power factor is an indication of how effectively a load uses power.

 How to Size Servo Motors: Advanced Inertia Calculations

When selecting the appropriate servo motor for a motion control application, one must know the inertia of the load being rotated.

 Motion Control: Rigid vs. Flexible

When specifying a motion control system for, say, a pick-and-place application on an automated assembly line, engineers have two choices.motion control and robotics
