The basic application for a VFD is one where an AC motor must be run with some aspect of control over the speed, accel/decel or torque. Cranes, fans, pumps, mixers, conveyors, and similar applications are all candidates for using a VFD.
With a competitive, evolving global market place, changes in outsourcing, and scarce availability of engineering talent, the decision to make or buy conveyors is one that many companies face every day.
Don't wait until it's too late, Kyntronics' actuators can help prevent disasters and improve your bottom line.
Electro-Hydraulic Power Unit for use with Customer Cylinders.
Actuators are a critical component to the automation process. In fact, most of the heavy lifting for liquids, gases and discrete motion control is done by actuators. There is an important distinction, however, between actuator applications: process and discrete.
Mitsubishi announced the discontinuation of their old legacy J2S product line back in 2015 and official repair services for this product ended in August 2022. If you haven’t already looked into upgrading to the J4, now is the time!
Is unchecked vibration affecting your bottom line? Vibration can bring any high-speed, high-precision process to an unexpected – and costly – standstill.
We’ve been finding more and more circumstances where customers find it beneficial to run their variable frequency drives (VFD) to failure, potentially damaging the VFD beyond repair. This is an interesting concept for people to wrap their mind around at first.
For both process and discrete motion control applications of actuators, many of the terminologies uttered and the base technologies utilized are similar. The difference comes in with the application and evolution of these base technologies.
After 24 years, Parker's popular 6K has been discontinued. It was the follow-up to Parker's successful 6000 Series controllers which together spanned over 35 years of motion control history!
