New motor and drive ranges from Leroy-Somer launched at SPS 2017 on Hall 4, stand No 4-250

Leroy-Somer, a business of the Nidec group, is preparing for the launch of new ranges at SPS IPC Drives, the Europe’s leading exhibition for electric automation, from November 14 to 16, in Nuremberg / Germany.

First and foremost, Leroy-Somer will be demonstrating Commander ID300, a new integrated drive for the control of its IMfinity® induction motors from 0.25 to 7.5 kW. This all-in-one drive solution has been designed to meet the strategic challenges of increasingly complex and demanding production environments, induced by the transition to Industry 4.0.

Custom manufactured process equipment – Tanks and Process Vessels

The company, which can supply full certification packs including materials, weld maps, surface finish, non-destructive testing and Notified Body third party approval, typically manufactures tanks and vessels in 316 and 316L stainless steel with higher grade materials such as Hastelloy®,  for specialised applications including those associated with the pharmaceutical industry.    

A Smooth Path To Drive Coupling Selection

Engineers and designers working on power transmission applications can often face a daunting task when it comes to specifying the most appropriate drive coupling for the task in hand. Detailed consideration must be given to both sides of the drive equation, input and output, with regard to torque, shock loads, starting frequency, temperature and environmental conditions, but where to begin.

In this informative article, David Proud General Manager of Reich Drive Systems UK explains how to navigate through what can sometimes be seen as a technical minefield for designers and engineers.

Drive couplings vary greatly in their design and capabilities, so for any given application engineers must ensure that they specify the drive coupling correctly to ensure reliable efficient, and in the more challenging applications, safe operation.

Structural engineering software as a service

How cloud computing supports the sharing of structural expertise

Chances are you’ll be familiar with the term software as a service (SaaS). Even though some people may be unaware, most of us have probably used such software recently. The concept boasts a lot of benefits to users, such as ongoing technical support, but can SaaS providers go further? Here, Sam Carigliano, co-founder of structural design software provider SkyCiv, explores the potential of SaaS for structural engineers.
