Saving Money with High Efficiency GearmotorsBy Joseph L. Hazelton
Standing in a factory or a warehouse, you're bound to notice machinery, whether it's a conveyor system that winds across the floor or large fans that hang from the ceiling. You may even notice automated guided vehicles or autonomous mobile robots carrying parts, driving themselves from one section of the building to another. These machines are good candidates for using high-efficiency gearmotors, especially if they're expected to run for long stretches at a time. If they aren't using high-efficiency gearmotors, then they may be costing more money than they should.
Special Requirements Call for Custom Coupling SolutionsDesign engineers seek the most efficient and reliable solutions to their applications. While often times, standard products are ideal, there are instances when an application challenge requires something other than a standard solution.
CHB Belt Drive Housings for Ball and Roller Screw Actuators
