  • Reduce Motor Failures in Your Plant | Webinar

    Studies show that 51% of electric motor failures are due to bearing damage and failure. The causes of premature failure can be broad. Mechanical & electrical stresses to environmental contamination are the most common. Knowing the application your motor is being installed and detecting early warning signs of a possible premature failure can save significant costs of unplanned downtime. In a 60 minute webinar we will identify common causes, warning signs and prevention methods. Join us!
  • 2017 Readers Choice Award Control Design Magazine

    For the 17th straight year, Control Design Magazine has conducted an unaided ballot of their subscribers; more than 18,000 individuals who have buying influence or authority were invited to cast their votes. The ballot was created by these same people, asking them to rank their go-to sources for products and services in machine automation.

  • Why Equipment Should Meet IP69K | External Link

    This rating can help end users choose equipment to prevent food safety issues. In recent years, food processing companies have incurred serious damages, including loss of sales and brand reputation, related to food recalls. Some individuals working for these companies with knowledge of potential contamination have been convicted of criminal liability, which can come with stiff fines or serious jail time. The reason is simple: food safety is a matter of life or death.
  • ABB’s general purpose motors combine quality, cost-efficiency and industry experience with short lead times

    With their standardized designs and short lead times, the new N-series high voltage pre-engineered motors meet most common needs across a wide range of industries.
  • Pre-engineering and online tools reduce delivery times for high voltage motors

    Even in the world of high voltage motors, a highly customized motor is not always needed. When is a pre-engineered general purpose motor the best option?

  • Webinar | Risk vs. Reward in Upgrading Motors in the Chemical, Oil and Gas Industry

    The chemical, oil and gas industry has a large installed base of aging electric motors. While there are numerous reasons to justify upgrading this critical equipment, there are also a number of risks and decisions involved in doing so. Some of these include: changes in dimensions, new industry standards, safety in design, efficiency pros and cons, and existing infrastructure. This webinar will address these topics using lessons learned in the field to help those considering upgrading their equipment.

New Products

  • Dodge Quantis gear reducers and gearmotors now available in higher ratios

    The Quantis product family, a full line of modular gear drives, has expanded to offer four and five stages of gear reduction for all three types of gear arrangements; in-line helical (ILH), offset parallel (MSM) and right angle helical bevel (RHB).

  • 5 Application Errors to Avoid When Installing Spare Motors

    Cost cutting on existing equipment will include using spares from idled equipment instead of buying new ones. While this may be necessary, it may not save money if the spare is improperly matched and installed. Low oil prices are greatly affecting the investment and installation of new pumping equipment. Cost cutting on existing equipment will include using spares from idled equipment instead of buying new ones. While this may be necessary, it may not save money if the spare is improperly matched and installed. Focusing on the same horsepower (hp), revolutions per minute (rpm), frame size and voltage is not enough. Ignoring five motor application considerations discussed in this article will cause additional downtime faster than expected.
  • Consider machine integration in the design phase

    Machine integration and automation should be planned in the conceptual phases of a machine project, says Baldor’s Kirkpatrick. "The amount of integration will usually have a considerable effect on the required wiring—control, power, communications—which must be accommodated in the design and installation phases," he says.
  • Engineer Uptime Into Your Conveyor's Bearings

    Downtime is often blamed on poor maintenance or lack of maintenance. Undoubtedly proper maintenance is important in keeping your conveyor in uptime and not downtime. However, there are many operators with exceptional maintenance practices who struggle with downtime. A contributing and often overlooked cause of downtime is the conveyor’s bearing selection.
  • Smart Motion Boosts Machine Productivity
