Different Kinds of Cables and Their Purposes

A cable is made up of a number of wires, running alongside each other and twisted together to form a single unit. Cables can be made of a variety of materials, each with different properties, and therefore suited to different purposes. Aluminium Cables The aluminium cable is one of the main electrical cables, and is […]

The Future of Motor Building

One hundred years ago, most engines and motors were built by hand. While this was indeed an impressive trade skill, automation and computers have largely replaced the “human” element involved in the production of industrial motors. However, the benefit here is that such mechanisms have become much more efficient and precise. This has enabled their […]

What is a Variable Frequency Drive?

What you need to know about variable frequency drives (VFDs) Let’s say you have a device driven by an electric motor such as a conveyor belt. Your electric motor has no throttle; it’s either all on or all off. But you don’t want your conveyor belt running at full speed all the time. This is […]

What are Maze-Solving Automatons?

Over the last few decades technology has come a long way, with more interest in funding and research than ever. So whilst certain difficulties in systems technology may be ever-present, researchers will always be able to come up with new and innovative solutions to deal with them. Open circuit faults are one of these innate […]

Why Refurbished Motors are a Better Solution Than Replacing Motors

The motors within industrial machinery endure a considerable amount of wear and tear. Over time, they will naturally need maintenance. However, it is a simple fact that such mechanisms will eventually require a complete overhaul. These are the instances when an owner could be debating whether a refurbishment is the best option or it is […]
