DC Motor Conversion 2018-11-02T10:28:39-04:00

Project Description

The project required that we interfacing to the existing press PLC controls because they were older. In some cases we used hard wired controls while others were able to use network controls. Because of the size difference in the motors many adaptations had to be made so Brave designed a custom pulley sheave to accommodate for the difference in size.  Our customer was happy as the AC motors required less maintenance and offered greater control, speed and performance. Parts for servicing the motors were readily available and no longer obsolete as with the previous DC motors. We also standardized the motors and drives allowing the customer to save on part cost.
