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.
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.

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.
The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
