Indianapolis, IN-- Midwest Engineered Products Corp. (http://www.separator.com) has released an
all-new centrifuge design called CentraSepô. The design combines a revolutionary
bowl/blade clutch with a single ac motor and ac motor drive. The system
automatically removes sub-micron-to-one-half-inch particles and fines from
virtually any coolant or lubricant at a processing rate ranging from 25 to 135
gpm (gallons per minute).
With patents pending on the unique clutch and scraper design,
Midwest credits new electrical control for making the CentraSep a reality.
"Accelerating the bowl and blade very rapidly for the processing cycle, bringing
the loaded bowl to a controlled stop, and turning the bowl against the scraper
blades require high breakaway torque and extremely precise motor control", says
Jeff Beattey. "In this design, the electrical and mechanical components are
fused and inseparable."
As manufacturers add new technologies to their products, designing for compliance becomes more difficult.†Prepare for the certification testing process. Otherwise, you increase the risk of discovering a safety issue after a product leaves the assembly line. That will†cause significant time-to-market delays,†be much costlier to fix, and damage your brand in the eyes of customers.†
Stratasys will be exhibiting two groundbreaking large-scale additive manufacturing technologies, as well as other new products, next month at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
