  • Preventing Failures in Industrial Process Equipment
    CAS DataLoggers recently provided the automated temperature monitoring solution for a customer producing plastic film in 5 plants across the US. Normally, at least one plant would burn out an electric motor (each costing about $120,000) every year due to gearbox seizures. Consequently
  • Leland Teschler's Editoral What's Tough About Training
    This issue's emphasis on motion control prompts some reflection on how people learn about motion technology. Often theoretical training isn 't enough to grasp what 's really going on when, for example, a beefy industrial motor couples into a gearbox that weighs more than your car. The real insights
  • Mighty motors
    Permanent-magnet synchronous motors eliminate gearboxes. Vice President and General Manager Industrial applications requiring high torque at low speeds typically use synchronous motors with reducers. Induction motors generate plenty of torque, but not at low speeds. However, new synchronous motor
  • News Briefs
    Relatively seldom do the industrial equipment manufacturers behind the scenes in the pharmaceutical and medical device industry have an opportunity to directly impact patent care. But at the University College London in the U.K., motor stators, supplied free by ABB ( are helping
  • Planetary reducers eliminate machining step to keep costs down
    , and custom shaft and flanges. In the design and prototype stage is an industrial-grade, right-angle planetary reducer for use in tight spaces. It's expected sometime this year. A maker of hand-operated movers for boats and airplanes needed a motor drive able to provide a high power density
