Sigma-5 AC Servo Family
Yaskawas Sigma-5 servos exhibit the highest performance in the industry due to unmatched frequency response, reduced settling times, and more precise control. In addition, they provide fast set up, simple tuning, and vibration suppression. All Sigma-5 rotary, linear, and direct drive servo motors feature plug-and-play connection with Sigma-5 servo amplifiers with automatic motor recognition and serial encoder technology.
OEE is Key in Packaging Automation
Advances in automation over the past 25 years have allowed manufacturers to become very proficient at mass production of a particular product. The introduction of new customization requirements has had a significant effect on the overall production efficiency. As a result, many manufacturers are investing heavily to improve the Overall Equipment Effectiveness (OEE) of their entire packaging line. This article examines how to address all of the OEE variables with a motion centric solution.
VFDs can be used to Improve Power Factor
Power factor is an indication of how effectively a load uses power. A high power factor indicates effective utilization of electrical power, while a low power factor indicates poor utilization. Utilities charge higher rates when power factor is low because of the extra burden imposed on the distribution system. Not only does the distribution system have to accommodate the real power being consumed, but it must also accommodate the reactive (non work producing) component flowing within the system. This article takes a look at how variable frequency drives can be used to improve input power factor.
