    Energy Efficiency - Do you have control?

    In my opinion, control is the most significant way to save energy in industrial plants. It is sometimes difficult to quantify and often overlooked, but if carried out correctly, it can transform your production. 

    Simply put, if something is running when it is not necessary, and we use control to stop the operation, the saving is 100%. How often have you walked through a plant and seen empty conveyor belts running or just a small trickle coming off the stockpile conveyor? 

    Furthermore, more than 90% of plants do not run at their full design capacity. Normally, a reserve factor has been introduced, which limits the capacity only to what is required to ensure reliability.

    Worm Gears

    Worm gear units.
     
    I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with them. 
     
    As a single-stage unit, they are normally available from a ratio 7 up to ratio 100. As a right-angled unit they are very versatile and like bevel helical offer an easy mounting arrangement using the hollow bore and a torque arm.

    Off Shore Winch

    For years we have built the team, our application portfolio and every day we get to work on projects with global OEM’s and often provide super smart systems, we also provide basic systems and standard off the shelf products. At the moment we tell no one about them and I often have customers say “ that’s really impressive I had no idea you did that”. Now with the help of Emma Jayne Johnston we are going to change that and I am going to post at least 1 application a week to hopefully give everyone a better insight into what we do and how we can help your specific industry.

    An automated warehouse is a breath-taking sight, as reams of pallets are automatically scanned and retrieved for delivery, but not all automation systems are made to endure extreme environments. Here’s how Technidrive and WEG partnered to help Moffett Automated Storage (MAS), design a vertical lift for extreme temperatures. Industrial elevators are usually propelled by electric motors, with the aid of a counterweight system. When these industrial systems are in varying conditions, the equipment must withstand extreme temperatures and heavy loads.
