A manufacturer of CBD distillation equipment required a drive system to precisely control flow and speed of liquids. The manufacturer selected several of our variable speed AC inverter duty gearmotors, inverter drives (VFDs) and a PLC control to drive the pumps and …
AC Inverters (VFDs)
Gearmotors & Controls
Inverter drives (variable frequency drives) allow AC inverter-duty gearmotors to run at variable speeds. The DC voltage is “chopped” to simulate a sine wave that is then sent to the motor. Varying the output voltage and frequency of the control changes the speed of the motor...
Mobile Antenna Systems
Low Voltage Equipment
A mobile antenna system required two gearmotors to precisely position the antenna to connect to orbiting telecommunications satellites. The gearmotors delivered precise motion during the initial calibration with the satellite, and then remain idle until the antenna is moved to a new location…
Automated Polybag Sealer
The manufacturer of an automated bag sealer required that two conveyors within the same machine operate at synchronous speeds. By powering both gearmotors from a single AC speed control (VFD = variable frequency drive), the speed of both conveyors would always be...
Automated Guided Vehicles
Warehousing & Logistics
An original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of AGVs contacted us to help develop two new custom gearmotors for their latest design. The solutions were two low voltage BLDC gearmotors with highly efficient windings and gearboxes to optimize the AGV battery life...
Solar-Powered Injection Pump
Oil and Gas Production
A pump used in remote gas pipelines required maximum efficiency for continuous operation in harsh conditions. We developed a brushless DC parallel shaft gearmotor with an optimized 12V winding efficiency point, a parallel shaft gearhead with...
A manufacturer of lifting equipment needed a small, high-torque gearmotor that would be capable of lifting and holding up to 200kg (440 lbs). Because the lifts were portable, the gearmotor would need to operate from 24VDC battery power...
A manufacturer of laboratory mixers contacted us to assist in the development of an enhanced mixer and speed control system. It required a through-bore motor shaft that could accept an adjustable height impeller shaft and locking mechanism...
Large Format Printer
Printing and Reproduction
An original equipment manufacturer required a brushless DC control and gearmotor system to turn a very large metal cylinder that feeds media into a printer. After the printing is complete, the media is rewound with a second, identical...
Pizza Conveyor Oven
A customer needed a DC drive system that ran smoothly at low speeds without sacrificing higher speed performance or adding cost. We designed special motor windings with a high gear ratio allowing the motor to operate smoothly at low...
Outdoor Marine Equipment
The application demanded that the gearmotor be suitable for long-term use in a harsh waterfront environment, deliver high starting and running torque, positive locking capability when not running, and it needed to be powered by 24 volt DC battery/solar cell system...
To increase patient comfort, a medical equipment manufacturer required extremely smooth and quiet operation of the gearmotors in their equipment...
Assisted Steering System
A GPS guided assisted steering system required a battery-powered motor-encoder combination for use in a rugged outdoor environment. We developed a unique low voltage DC motor with a...
Dissolution Testing Equipment
A customer required that the gearmotor maintain the same motor noise level when switching from a 130VDC to a low-voltage 24VDC gearmotor. An analysis of the application’s load revealed standard...
A customer was having a problem meeting the industry standard for stopping time of the stairlift during a power failure. Even without power the motor acted as a generator.
Electric Planter System
An agricultural seed planter required a compact, rugged and powerful 12V gearmotor to drive its seed meter. We developed a 12V hollow shaft gearmotor and encoder combination designed to withstand...
A customer found that motors that worked flawlessly in dry environments were not working as well in wet conditions. Our engineers determined that water was seeping into the gearmotors through their cooling fans. The motors were replaced with totally enclosed...
Introduction to Brushless DC
Gearmotors and Motors
Brushless DC motors require zero maintenance and provide long life, low EMI, and quiet operation. They produce more output power per frame size than AC or permanent magnet DC motors and gearmotors...
