Brushless DC Motor

BEI Kimco Magnetics (Vista, CA) introduced the DII15-60-200A High Pressure High Temperature (HPHT) brushless DC (BLDC) motor developed specifically to withstand harsh conditions found in the oil exploration Industry. The robust design also makes it suitable for other applications found in severe environments. The 1.5" diameter motor provides a solution for severe down-hole applications such as mud pulser valves, caliper deployment, and sensor positioning. The motor operates under continuous duty in temperatures up to 205 ºC and pressures up to 30,000 psi.

Servo Motor Brakes

Nexen Group (Vadnais Heights, MN) offers Eclipse Servo Motor Brakes that consume no energy when the brake is disengaged. It is springengaged/ air-released (no electric coil) to keep the brake cool until it is needed. The brakes mount to the shaft end of servomotors up to 20 horsepower, including NEMA 23, 34, and 42 frame sizes. The brake’s square-shaped housing allows flexibility to make the mounting features match the motor dimensions. The brake’s output end duplicates the motor mounting features. The input end bore accepts the motor shaft and is fixed inside the brake with a split-hub/shaft collar arrangement.

AC Drive

Vacon (Milwaukee, WI) introduced the NXC drive, an enclosed, variable-speed AC drive for high-power applications. It is available in NEMA 1 and NEMA 12 variations for applications in pumps and fans, extruders, main propulsion and bow thrusters, conveyers and crushers, feeders and mixes, winches, compressors, test benches, static power supply, and industrial elevators. It is available with a standard diode front end, or with an active front end when there are requirements for low harmonic, and/or the capability of regenerating 100% of its power back to the incoming line.

Rotary Assembly Unit

The SCHUNK SRU-mini- Speed rotary unit from SCHUNK (Morrisville, NC) is available in two model sizes and provides swivel times from 0.27s. If lightweight parts are handled with the unit, more than 4,000 cycles per hour can be achieved. Model size 10 achieves swivel times of 0.27s, and up to 3,600 cycles per hour is possible. As an alternative to higher speeds and number of cycles, higher load capacities can be implemented with an unchanged installation space. As part of a patented damping design, elastomer has been combined with an oil-damped shock absorber.
