Infrastructure Week and KEB America

Each year, Infrastructure Week seeks to highlight the importance of the nation’s infrastructure in our daily lives. Modern technology to support and maintain our roads, airports, rails, bridges, water treatment, energy production, and all the rest is a huge industry. KEB America is a part of this industry and we understand the importance of getting people through their day with safety, speed, and efficiency. Our experienced designers and engineers are able to tackle special projects from a huge range of industries related to infrastructure. Power transmission, heat and power generation, recycling, material handling, pumps, sorting and picking, and construction are...

VFDs for Direct Drive High Torque Servo Motors

High Torque Servo Motors are a useful tool for designers of industrial machinery.  KEB has a lot of experience controlling AC Torque motors and this post gives an overview of the motor technology and some considerations when looking at direct drives.     What is a High Torque Servo Motor? A torque motor is nothing more than an AC Servo Motor that is designed with a high pole count.  Most standard AC Servo motors will use a 6-pole or 8-pole design and will likely operate nominally at 2,000-6,000 rpm.  Many applications will require some sort of speed reduction (e.g. planetary...

Benefits of VFDs and line-regenerative units for escalators

This article originally appeared on KEBblog.com as a three-part series and was featured in the May 2018 issue of Elevator World magazine.   Variable-frequency drives (VFDs) paired with line-regenerative units are a great fit for escalator applications. Compared to line-fed escalators, VFDs provide maximum application performance benefits, such as smooth speed profile ramps, adjustable torque limits and drive modes based on user traffic. Thanks to its power factor  (PF) improvement, a VFD will also reduce large inrush currents and power consumption. Compared to braking resistors, a line regenerative unit can provide energy savings in overhauling applications (i.e., downward-traveling escalators) and...

IAEC Forum and KEB | Continuing education for elevator consultants

This week the International Association of Elevator Consultants (IAEC) will be meeting in Chicago for the annual IAEC forum. KEB America’s elevator team is pleased to be attending again.The event is an opportunity for suppliers, consultants, and all elevator and lift professionals to meet and go over current trends and developments in the industry.   In previous years we’ve had the chance to hold workshops, and although this year we are not on the agenda as a workshop instructor, we are dedicated to providing our customers – old, new, and potential – with the most up-to-date documentation and information about...

Quiet brake technology and the HUSH initiative

Most people would agree that going through surgery is stressful.  On top of that, trying to rest and recover after a painful procedure with beaming bright lights, machines beeping repetitively, and chattering discussions in the hallways will likely add stress to the experience.  Recent studies have shown that over 50% of patients have found this problematic. On top of the patients themselves, nurses and staff have found the excessive noise distracting and agitating pulling focus from patient care.   For this reason many hospitals have started new programs such as the HUSH initiative or Help Us Supporting Healing.  The program...
