Linear progression: using linear motors

Machine builders often have to create linear motion, for which the default choice is generally the use of a rotary motor and mechanism to convert the output to linear. The option to use linear motors is often overlooked, so here Andy Parker-Bates looks at the features and benefits of the technology

Replace, upgrade or retrofit - a designer's AC drive dilemma

When redesigning a motor-driven application, a vital decision has to be taken: do you replace, upgrade or retrofit the application's drives? Heikki Kervinen looks at the choices
