Some of us are old enough to have had say, great-grandparents, for example, who when the occasion arose would casually refer to cars as âœmachines.â It sounded funny and arcane, and we would snicker under our breath. But of course the laugh was on us; back in the day â” 1910s through the 1930s â” automobiles were commonly referred to as machines.

Experienced operators can often tell if a machine is not working properly, on the basis that it does not â˜sound right.â™ The same principle can be applied â” using modern electronics â” to identify the exact cause of the problem. Sensitive accelerometers can detect and analyze the vibrations from industrial equipment, highlighting problems such as misalignment or bearing imbalance. The technique is known as vibration analysis. It can identify bearing failure in the very early stages, when there is a microscopic defect on the raceway, for example. The problem is that the identifying signal is usually drowned out in all the other noise emanating from the machine.

Norkol Converting Corporation is one of the nationâ™s leading independently owned converters and distributors of commercial printing papers. The company has full production capabilities and state-of-the-art machinery for winding, trimming and sheeting. The company utilizes traditional slitter re-wind equipment that unwinds, slits and then re-winds paper to new dimensions. These conventional re-winders, while typically producing new widths of paper with clean cuts, work at an inefficient, slow pace.
Reading Rock manufactures concrete blocks - the kind that were probably used to build the schools that you attended. With employees working three shifts six to seven days a week, they make plenty of them.
If youâ™re an electrical engineer you know how an electric motor works; if you arenâ™t, it can be extremely confusing. Therefore, hereâ™s the simplified explanation (or the âœhow an electric motor works for dummiesâ version) of how a four-pole, three-phase AC induction motor works in a car.
I need help determining the diametral pitch needed to achieve the closest center-to-center distance for 2 spur gears. The 1st gear is a 34-tooth and the 2nd gear is a 28-tooth. The center-to-center distance between the gears needs to be as close to 2 1/8" as possible.
A reader asks: I've determined that a stainless steel bearing is the best option for my application. I'm being asked to specify the grade of stainless steel in my product design. I'm not sure which grade to select and specify. Can you help?

A selection process that is well thought out at the start can ensure that the product selected will be properly sized and appropriate to the application at hand.
Beginning with this initial installment , and with the gracious permission of ABB/Baldor Electric, we are pleased to announce the beginning of a new series -- Baldor Basics: Motors. This is a collection of basicsdriven, motor-intensive articles authored by former Baldor engineer Edward Cowern, PE, a respected name by many in the electric motor industry. During his tenure at Baldor, Cowern - now enjoying his retirement - was tasked with producing a number of motor- and basics-related tutorials, primarily in response to a steady flow of customer questions regarding motors. Today's customers continue to ask questions and seek answers to address their various motor-related issues. As with Cowern's original introduction to the series, we hope you find these articles useful and would appreciate any comments or thoughts you might have for future improvements, corrections or topics.
