Siemens presents industry-specific motors for steel plants

20.11.2014

SPS IPC Drives 2014, Hall 11

  • Expansion of the Simotics Definite Purpose portfolio with steel plant motors specially designed for applications in the steel industry
  • Optimized versions available for operation with Sinamics S120 converters as an integrated drive system
  • Efficiency class IE3 for energy-efficient network operation

Siemens has developed industry-specific motors for steel plants on the basis of the Simotics 1LE1 motor platform. The ventilated Simotics DP Steel Plant Motors expand the range of roller table motors, and are specially designed for applications in the steel industry where they meet the high demands in terms of vibrations and shocks according to Class 3M4.


Specially designed for applications in the steel industry: the new Simotics DP Steel Plant Motors from Siemens.

Versions of these new motors are optimized for use with converters of the Sinamics S120 series and, as integrated drive systems, contribute to reliable and efficient operation. In network operation, the IE3 efficiency class ensures particularly high energy savings.

The new Simotics DP Steel Plant Motors from Siemens offer optimized solutions for steel production processes. In particular, these include the transport processes, for example transport to the reheating furnace and cooling bed, on beam rolling mills or run-out tables.

The motors feature a mechanical design that has been continuously tested in accordance with to DIN EN60721-3-3 and exhibit a correspondingly high resistance to vibration and shocks, compliant with Class 3M4. They are available in 4- and 6-pole designs with shaft heights from 112 to 280 mm and in the torque range from 20 to 578 Nm.

The Steel Plant range comprises not only mains powered motors, but also versions optimized for converter operation with special insulation systems. When used together with the Sinamics S120 drive system, these motors form an integrated drive system that contributes to particularly dynamic and reliable production processes. Furthermore, operation with the Sinamics S120 converter enables group drives to be implemented with a high level of synchronization.

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...
