High speed motor control with KEB drives

With over 200,000 installed spindle drives, KEB is an expert in high speed motor control and has earned a reputation as the worldwide spindle drive leader.  This post describes some of the reasons KEB is preferred by our CNC, woodworking, and robotic customers.       Spindle Motor Control KEB drives can run both induction and permanent magnet spindle motors through the adjustment of a drive parameter.  KEB’s robust motor control algorithms mean it can run a variety of different motor designs from all major spindle motor manufacturers.  Basic applications can utilize V/Hz control.  The advantage of V/Hz is its...

Designing an effective HMI display

The goal of any effective HMI display is to facilitate the flow of information between the machine and the human operating it. Today, UX (or User Experience) design is not really considered to be a discipline in its own right within the industrial manufacturing industry, so the task of designing HMI displays can fall to system integrators or IT personnel. If you’ve been tasked with setting up an HMI display for your installation, we can offer you a few pointers to make sure your displays are clear, uncluttered, and useful for the machine operators. For creating functional HMI displays, KEB...

Master-slave drive applications

Simple drive applications can be solved by many drive vendors. The difference in drive performance and quality becomes more apparent in difficult and demanding applications.   An example of a more difficult application is one that uses a Master-follower (or “Master-slave”) drive topology. Master-slave drive applications can be seen on many machines including winder/unwinders, printing presses, and gantry cranes, to name a few. This post gives an overview of some of these applications and what drive technology to look for in order to meet the tough demands.     History How do I synchronize motor speeds? It’s a common question....

KEB Liquid cooled VFDs – A good pairing for water cooled motors

Liquid cooled VFDs are just one example of the heatsink technology offered by KEB America. In this post, we will cover the advantages and features of a liquid cooled inverter, and some of the appropriate applications.       Heat is the Enemy In order for power electronic components to function properly and perform over a usable lifetime, the heat produced during normal operation must be dissipated. The operational lifetime of these components is directly linked to their operating temperature. In general, as the operating temperature of power electronic components increases, the lifetime is decreased.   Variable frequency drives (VFDs)...

Using one VFD to control multiple motors

Some applications (fans, pumps, etc.) might benefit from running multiple induction motors at the same time from one VFD. This post provides an overview of running multiple motors from a central VFD.   Advantages of using one VFD to control multiple motors   Smaller cabinet size One large drive will have a smaller footprint than multiple smaller VFDs. Additionally, that one large drive requires only one branch circuit protection (e.g. fuses), incoming wiring, and braking resistor. The net result is a smaller electrical enclosure.       Cost reduction There will be some economy savings in using one large drive...
