1 Advanced Belt Drive Systems (June 2019)

Enhancing Safety, Quality, Delivery and Cost.

2 Motors without Rare-Earth Magnets: What Are the Options (October 2019)

Lower-cost motor technologies exist that can be an attractive alternative to neo-based BL PM motors - and are not subject to unpredictable supply chains

3 Cost-Effective, High-Performing Motors without Neodymium Magnets - Part II (December 2019)

In Part I we explored various motor technologies used today for industrial and traction motor design. Here in Part II we will explore another motor option: reluctance motors.

4 Timing Belts and Pulleys - Operations (December 2016)

Synchronous drives are especially well-suited for low-speed, high-torque applications. Their positive driving nature prevents potential slippage associated with V-belt drives, and even allows significantly greater torque carrying capability. Small pitch synchronous drives operating at speeds of 50 ft/min (0.25 m/s) or less are considered to be low-speed. Care should be taken in the drive selection process as stall and peak torques can sometimes be very high. While intermittent peak torques can often be carried by synchronous drives without special considerations, high cyclic peak torque loading should be carefully reviewed.

5 Hovercraft Technology Taking Us Back to the Future (December 2015)

There are few things in this world that elicit such a gleeful, childlike sense of wonder as does the word “hoverboard”.

6 Motoring Ahead (August 2011)

Synchronous motors controlled by variable speed drives are bringing higher efficiencies to industrial applications.

7 Drive and Motor Basics (October 2013)

A discussion of the basics in DC drives, DC motors, AC drives, AC motors and synchronous motors.

8 The Reluctance Motor Springs Forth (August 2014)

There are three major types of reluctance motors: all three reluctance motors are non-permanent magnet, brushless motors. They are synchronous motors with a non-linear relationship between torque and current. The variable-reluctance step and switched-reluctance motors utilize the principle of magnetic attraction by inducing magnet poles within the soft-iron rotor, and by energizing a set of coils wound around stator teeth resident in the laminated stator. These two reluctance motors must be sequentially excited to achieve continuous, steady-state rotation. The design of all reluctance motors requires finite element analysis (FEA) software.

9 Analyzing Synchronous Belt Failure (October 2009)

If you’re replacing your belts more than once per year, it’s time to analyze your drive. From belt crimping damage to high belt installation tension to sprocket misalignment and adverse environmental conditions, this guide walks you through how to identify the reasons behind premature failure and makes recommendations on corrective and preventive measures.
