Show preview: NAEC Convention 2018 | New elevator technology from KEB America

The annual NAEC Convention and Exposition takes place next week in Atlantic City, New Jersey. For nearly 50 years KEB has been a part of the elevator and lift industry and this year we’re excited to highlight our solutions for escalator technology and elevator safety.   Escalator technology from KEB America   Compact and efficient variable frequency drives from KEB are ideal for escalator applications. Compared to line-fed escalators, an escalator using a VFD will have a smoother ride and will perform better overall. Our ASCL technology eliminates the need for a motor encoder on the drive, saving you money....

Washdown servo motor for harsh environments

When motors are used in applications that are exposed to moisture and chemicals – such as food and beverage processing – they require special design considerations to ensure they will withstand the environment. The new STEEL IT epoxy coating option from KEB America provides a washdown servo motor with many of the benefits of a stainless steel motor, but at a fraction of the cost.     KEB DL3 Servo Motors provide dynamic control for positioning and cycling tasks. With excellent torque density and a range of options for voltage and power, they can easily fit into many industrial applications....

KEB Automation for Industrial Door Systems

Industrial door solutions are used in every manufacturing plant, and KEB America has years of experience in applying KEB technology to control and automate industrial door systems. Our products have been used in applications such as fabric doors, four fold doors, bi-fold doors, sliding doors, and hangar doors with mullions. Common KEB products that are used in industrial door systems are our HMI LC, standard HMI, PLC’s, I/O, VFD’s, geared motors, and spring applied brakes. Our products are engineered and assembled here in Minneapolis and are suited for the North American market.     Controls and HMI   HMI’s are...

Show Preview: IMTS 2018

  IMTS 2018 starts this week in Chicago, and once again we’re happy to be a part of the show. You can visit us in the East Hall, Level 3, Booth 134152.     Here’s a preview of the technology you can expect to see from KEB America.   Spindle drives KEB offers high-speed VFDs for precise spindle application control. The drives have flexible communication options so they can be integrated with many third-party PLCs. CNC control KEB’s programming software package includes a dedicated CNC HMI and CNC kernel for positioning and speed control. The software can be paired with KEB drives, motors,...

VFD Storage and Capacitor Reforming

For production and manufacturing atmospheres, a machine down can be a painful event. In this article, we will cover proper VFD storage and capacitor reforming to make the situation a bit easier on you and your customers.   Let’s start with an example – a manufacturing facility has a few large machines that are critical to daily production and operation. One of these machines goes down and it is determined that the variable frequency drive (VFD) within the machine has failed or needs to be serviced/repaired. Ordering a new drive or having the drive serviced/repaired is expected to take approximately...

VFDs for High Vibration Environments

Generally speaking, VFDs are not designed to withstand high vibration environments.  Most drives are considered industrial grade, not aerospace or military grade.  VFDs feature many different components, solder joints, standoffs, and connectors.  The designs and components are chosen to balance cost and performance but especially cost.  If there is little to no vibration, the drives will perform just fine.  However, if exposed to excessive vibration, these joints and connectors will fail prematurely.     In some applications, vibration cannot be avoided.  Applications like AGVs, wind turbines, auxiliary drives for buses, and material handling machinery come to mind.  Some external measures...
