Tony Young explains the key points to consider when deciding whether to repair or replace a servo motor

A piezo-based tool for every task

Doris Knauer discusses miniaturised precision stages with piezo-based inertia drives

Customisable drives for precision applications

Users can specify gears, motors, encoder feedback systems, output bearings, sensors, windings, protective coatings and ingress protection ratings

How efficient are your motors really?

Around the world, legislation relating to electric motor efficiency is tightening in an attempt to reduce carbon emissions and damage to the environment. However, far less attention is paid to some of the practicalities. Here, Lucie Hodkova looks at how best to determine the efficiency of an installed motor

25 things you may not know about drives

Drives have been a key technology for industrial engineers for many years but Matt Handley thinks they can be underappreciated. Here he highlights some of the interesting facts about them

Ultracompact water-cooled motors

Offer 1.5 to 2.6 times the power density of conventional water-cooled motors, ensuring reduced heat dissipation and a smaller frame size

Enhanced compact drives offer greater power density

Second generation of Sinamics G120, with new PM240-2 power module, features higher power density and space-saving frame size

Latest IE3 rated pump motors

Bredel and MasoSine models upgraded in line with phase 2 of the EU’s IE3 efficiency level legislation for electric motors

Gearbox range for high torques

The new GHT multi-turn gearbox range from AUMA offers up to 120,000Nm torque

Permanent magnet motors: Why engineers should be familiar with the technology

One technology set to redefine expectations is the permanent magnet AC motor, which is an increasingly attractive alternative to the currently ubiquitous induction or squirrel cage motor. Rick Munz assesses its advantages
