Eastern Air Devices' new hysteresis synchronous motor operates at speeds more than four times those of similar motors. It reportedly achieves those speeds with low speed variation, a much desired trait in medical and optical applications. The size 44, 3-phase, single-speed motor operates at 15,000 continuous rpm while maintaining a smooth, quiet, and efficient constant speed drive. Torque rating is 13.5 oz-in with continuous output of 1/5 hp.
Most machine design engineers will survey existing component manufacturers for standard linear guide products, limiting what they can do with their designs. Using extruded aluminum profile guides can customize machine designs while shrinking the bill of materials.
Practically all electronic devices today contain metals that may
be coming from conflict-ravaged African countries. And political pressures will increasingly influence how these minerals are sourced and used in products.
