In the next month, Machine Design, Motion System Design, and Hydraulics & Pneumatics will present two webcasts for engineers designing motion control systems.

Five basic steps to optimize design and performance

Groschopp Inc., Sioux Center, Iowa, will begin its series, “Custom Motor Technology” on Wednesday, March 28, at 2 p.m., with a 45-minute webcast for design engineers involved in specifying and selecting fractional horsepower motors for OEM applications. Sponsored by Machine Design and Motion System Design, this course will cover:

  • Motor basics - what you need to know to get started in selecting an optimal motor.

  • Application considerations - how to identify and define the major characteristics, objectives, and priorities of your application.

  • Motor types - review and rank motor types relative to application considerations.

  • Customization - maximize motor design to meet OEM performance and cost objectives, including integrated solutions.

  • Formulas, tools, and design tips.

Designing machines to reduce downtime

This webcast, presented by IMI Norgren Inc., Littleton, Colo., and sponsored by Machine Design, Hydraulics & Pneumatics, and Motion System Design runs from 2 to 3 p.m. on April 4 and is designed for OEM equipment and factory automation design engineers. It provides knowledge of pneumatic circuit and air preparation design techniques and will highlight the following points:

  • Conserving energy through the proper conditioning of compressed air.

  • Demonstrations of air preparation.

  • Increasing machine performance.

  • The effects of poor air preparation on the pneumatic circuit.

  • Incorporating feedback/sensors to improve efficiency and prolong life.
