A new edition of Baldor Electric's Solutions magazine for motor, drive and power transmission engineers and users is available for download. It contains technical articles illustrating how electric motor, drive, power transmission and motion control technologies are being used to advantage.
Among the major articles in this issue is a review of the development work behind the launch of an innovative direct-drive system for commercial building water cooling tower fans. A case study of the fan drive then examines the technology's contribution to higher reliability and energy efficiency.
Other application-focused features include a look at a power-saving upgrade of drives that control a town's water tower pumps, a case study of an energy-efficient motor upgrade at a foundry, and details of how adapter-mounted bearings and gear reducers are improving conveyor reliability at a quarry.
