Stopping the centrifuge requires either a very time consuming coast stop or a braked stop. Drives can apply DC current across the motor winding to decelerate the motor.
An AC drive can ramp the motor speed down even faster but the motor becomes a generator and starts transferring energy back to the drive. The AC drive can dissipate the energy into dynamic braking resistors, share... (read more)
Shrink wrappers are used in many packaging plants to overwrap heat shrink film over a tray of product. After the product passes through a heat tunnel, the film adheres to itself and seals the product to the tray for shipping. The system uses a conveyor to feed the film under an incoming tray then the film and the tray advance in a synchronized motion. (read more)
