Electric Motors Supplier in Yorkshire   

Electric motors convert electrical energy into mechanical energy, usually with the purpose of creating motion. Products available through an electric motors supplier like Yorkshire’s YB Components generate force via interactions between a magnetic field and a winding current. The winding current can be alternating (AC) or direct (DC). There are multiple types of both AC and DC motors, as well as other special purpose electric motor. Let’s look at the different types of electric motors below. Types of AC Electric Motor The main types of AC motor include synchronous and asynchronous, with the latter also known as induction motors. The synchronous motor uses a 3-phase supply, with a stator in the electric motor generating the magnetic field by rotating at […]

Enemac Torque Limiters   

Enemac use a precision manufacturing technique to produce a variety of couplings and shaft locking devices, with the wide range of Enemac couplings making them suitable for many different shaft types. The Enemac shaft locking devices or torque limiters are also made with special high-quality materials and are put through a tough testing procedure to ensure they are safe and reliable. Why Use Torque Limiter Couplings? The Enemac torque limiters are a way to minimise the need for repairs and mechanical stoppages by using torque restriction technology, which basically means they provide protection from overload. The torque limiting protection works by quickly stopping the drive train when a disruption is detected before safely diverting any destructive inertial forces and torque […]

Ballscrews Vs. Roller Screws

Ballscrews and roller screws are two of the most popular components for applications that move loads linearly. They can both be used with electric actuators but there are significant differences which make each of them ideal for different applications. Here we look at how both ballscrews and roller screws are made and the advantages and disadvantages of each. Ballscrews Manufacture and Design The ballscrews manufacture design involves inserting ball bearings between the screw’s corresponding threads of the screw and the nut. The ball bearings will roll around within their casing and transmit force and relative motion as they circulate. Actuators operating with ballscrews will boast a high thrust capability and a consistently high efficiency rate of around 80%. They also […]

Fixed Speed Gearboxes

These days, engineers and machine operators have a lot of different types of transmissions to choose from when looking for the ideal speed drive for a particular application. Identifying the most appropriate gearbox is something of a challenge, but the fixed speed drive is often the answer. This is because the motor of a fixed speed gearbox can serve multiple purposes and can be used in a wide variety of applications, with this versatility making it one of the most common speed drives for industrial applications. Why Choose a Fixed Speed Gearbox? Mechanical fixed speed drives are robust, reliable and are a cost effective speed reduction solution. Of course, a lot of the fixed speed drive solutions available today will […]

How Filling Level Sensors Work   

Filling level sensors monitor and regulate the level of liquid goods or free-flowing substances such as powders within a container. There are a lot of different types of filling level sensors which are used with many different applications. One of the main types of level sensor used in industrial applications are Senotec sensors, which are supplied by Senotec level sensors suppliers like YB Components. Filling Level Sensor Measurements During an application where there is a need for continuous measurement of the filling level, the filling level sensor will monitor the level and show it on either an analogue or digital display so the operator knows how much of the container has been filled at any one point. Some sensors will […]
