BLDC Motor Manufacturers Increase Energy Grid Efficiency

Admin    June 5, 2018

With environmental, economic, geopolitical and environmental concerns making headlines, the concept of energy efficiency is gaining broad support across the globe. Efficiency is often associated with how the end user consumes energy, but it also has to do with how energy is generated and distributed. As BLDC motor manufacturers have their devices installed in products that operate on direct current (DC), the use of direct currents from DC sources avoids energy losses related to converting DC power to AC power and then back to DC power. With motors accounting for up to half of the planet’s energy consumption, brushless DC…

Need for Investment Casting Increases for Medical Applications

Admin    May 24, 2018

Custom investment casting is used in many medical products that aid in the increasing quality of care patients receive, time spent in recovery, and the prevention of complications. The science is responsible for some of the greatest achievements in modern medicine, including knee and hip replacements. A recent study about knee and hip arthroplasties found that 7.2 million Americans have an implant. It’s estimated that between 2005 and 2013, the number of total knee replacements in the U.S. will increase by 600 percent. Hip replacements will increase by about 200 percent over the same period. Investment casting manufacturers have an…

Investment Casting & Tractor Trailers – The Importance of Couplings

Admin    May 1, 2018

More than 70 percent of the freight tonnage moved throughout the United States goes on trucks. Without these vehicles and others that rely on fifth-wheel couplings, the economy would come to a standstill. As the trucking industry grows by 3.4 percent annually through 2023, steel investment casting will remain a vital manufacturing process that keeps tractor units safely linked to semi-trailers. What are Fifth-Wheel Couplings? Made using investment casting techniques, fifth-wheel couplings serve as the link between semi-trailers and tractor units, leading trailers, dollies or tow trucks. They join two pieces of rotating equipment while allowing some degree of end…

BLDC Motors take LiDar Drones to New Heights

Admin    April 12, 2018

The face of modern surveying is changing. In addition to using satellites and traditional surveying equipment such as retroreflectors and optical levels, specialists use remote sensing and UAV technologies to scan the Earth’s surface. One of these technologies is Light Detection and Ranging, or LiDar. Specialists perform the sensing method remotely to examine the planet’s surface using light pulses. The instrument contains a scanner, laser and a special GPS receiver. Rather than use an airplane or helicopter, scientists are taking advantage of drone technologies imbedded with BLDC motors to keep the aircraft aloft and powered to keep costs significantly lower….
