Introducing Baldor Electric Company's new manufacturing plant in Shelby, North Carolina. With a significant investment from ABB, this 259,000 square foot facility, which began producing DC motors in June of 2012, is the new home for ABB's DMI DC product line and will serve as the global center of excellence for DC motor production.
The dangers posed by combustible dusts no longer are being swept under the rug. Tougher regulations and greater corporate resolve are making dust hazard management an increasingly important topic for every manufacturing sector.
In order to meet the requirements of our different customers, ABB offers a wide range of segment and application specific solutions, ranging from pump and HVAC applications to demanding crane and marine solutions.
Improper lubrication is among the leading causes of gearbox failure, it makes sense that proper lubrication plays a key role in achieving satisfactory performance and extending the life of gear reducers.
Pumps play a major, and often understated, role in most industrial activity. The opportunity to reduce energy consumption and related costs, improve industrial processes and contribute to environmental well being are all benefits that can be attributed using intelligent pump systems in many of these applications
V-belts, Synchronous Belt, or Roller Chain? Which type of drive system should I use? There are pros and cons for each, and when making a drive conversion or engineering a new application they should be considered.
Interested in learning more about the safety of your vacuum applications? In the majority of vacuum handling or lifting applications, vacuum venturi are utilized (compressed airpowered venturi systems) to provide a simple and initial cost-effective lifting solution. Of course this is perfectly fine as long as certain criteria are met. This could be ongoing cost of ownership, maintenance requirements, and more importantly, the safety of the system. This article concentrates on basic safety tips of vacuum handling, as well as highlighting products and methods that can be employed to minimize vacuum system failure.
In every facet of production, the work rides on bearings. Whether you are an OEM engineer or the head of a maintenance department, you fully understand the importance of bearing selection on keeping equipment working.
Belt conveyors are critical elements in any bulk material-handling operation. However, they can also be dangerous, particularly when employees assigned with operating and maintaining them are poorly trained as to their potential hazards. The attached white paper discusses the importance of conveyor safety and training.
In recent years, manufacturing plants have recognized the importance of improving compressed air system efficiencies. Two key points for plant engineers and energy conservation champions to focus on are to eliminate leaks and to reduce air compressor operating pressure to the lowest set-point possible.
The simatherm IH 025 VOLCANO marks the start of a new era in the field of portable induction heaters. The patented technology enables outstanding heating performance from an extremely light structure.
How many times have you opened a locked closet door or cabinet drawer inside your facility to find it overflowing with junk? You have just breached a hoarder's hidden treasure trove of spare parts and consumable materials.
As American manufacturers increase exports to 50 hertz countries, there arises the problem of supplying motors for 50 hertz service at an array of unfamiliar voltages. Fortunately there are some possibilities available that make it feasible to handle many of these requirements without waiting for special designs.
In the world of manufacturing, we are looking for better, more efficient ways to improve our production uptime and quality, reduce the cost per unit, improve human capital utilization and create a higher quality of work life for our personnel. Kitting for maintenance crafts to perform their tasks is one of the easier and more effective ways to allow quality completion of the job with minimal productivity impact, especially when accompanied by a well-planned and functionally scheduled job.
