Sirem Gear Motors and IP44 Protection

Sirem have been at the forefront of industrial innovation for over 90 years now, manufacturing a wide variety of products including gearboxes, water tight motors, pumps and drum motors. Here we take a closer look at two of their most popular gear motor products, as well as explaining exactly what their IP44 certification means. D Type – Asynchronous Sirem Gear Motor This reversible Sirem gearbox with parallel gears is ideally suited for applications involving textile machines, rotary presses and liquid agitators. It features the titular asynchronous motor which is an electric motor driven by an alternating current created via the electromagnetic induction from the magnetic field of the stator (or stationary part of the rotary mechanic). Such asynchronous or induction […]

Ancillary Products Available Through YB Components

              Usually on this blog we like to highlight a particular manufacturer or product that we supply, usually in the form of gearboxes and motors, couplings and clutches, as well as variable speed pulleys and belts. We also supply a number of ancillary products that are worth highlighting, so below is brief description of some of the most frequently requested machine parts and components that don’t necessarily fall under the usual categories mentioned above. AMC Anti-Vibration Mounts While the usual AMC machine mounts are always of a high quality, the AMC anti-vibration mounts are especially popular thanks to their unique characteristics which dampen the effects of operational vibrations. The mounts have high profile rubber […]

German Industry Receives Economic Boost

There was good news for the German industrial sector recently when the country’s Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK) updated its economic growth forecast for 2018 from its originally projected growth of 2.2% to 2.7%. Already Europe’s biggest economy, German industry is now looking forward to an even brighter future with this year already seeing a significant boost in the morale of workers across the country. A survey of 26,000 business managers conducted by the DIHK discovered that morale related to current working conditions has climbed to a record-high, with 54% of companies reporting good conditions. Only 6% reported bad conditions, with the remaining 40% reporting that conditions were satisfactory. In light of this boost to the German economy and […]

Deepak Interchangeable Variable Speed Drives

Deepak Drives produce highly efficient variable speed pulleys and belts, many of which are interchangeable with other manufacturers such as Lenze and Berges. This blog has covered the Deepak variable speed drives that are interchangeable with Lenze before, so below is a little more detail about one of the Deepak variable speed pulleys that is interchangeable with Berges, as well as some information on a couple of their other pulley systems. Deepak Variable Speed Pulleys – Asymmetric Belt Drives Interchangeable with the Berges variable speed belts, Deepak’s Asymmetric Drive is designed to minimise wear and tear via the disc being mounted on the hub without any keys or mechanical splines. It comes with its own lubrication that should last its […]
