Helping Brazil triple oil production by 2020
The world is not running out of oil; rather, it’s running out of easily found and easily extracted oil. What’s left is in places that are hard to get to, and even harder to work in, such as off the coast of Brazil where one of the largest oil reserves in the world is buried in a pre-salt geological layer beneath miles of water and rock. Eaton’s Synflex hose has been a critical component in subsea exploration for over 45 years. The hose’s flexible 316 stainless steel inner-locking carcass withstands over 5,000 psi (345 bar) differential pressure and up to 7,500 psi (517 bar) working pressure, extreme forces that are commonplace in ultra-deep water exploration.

Breakthrough motor cures reliability challenges for Synseal
A company producing extruded PVC-U profiles for double glazing product applications is using ABB’s synchronous reluctance (SynRM) motor to cut the number of motor failures on two of its main extruders. The SynRM replaced ageing servo motors, ensuring high reliability and maximum production time for the company from its extruders.

Efficient cooling from Rittal
German manufacturer SHW Werkzeugmaschinen GmbH, from the Swabian, manufactures moving column machine tools. Machinery from the company includes a 200-ton moving column milling machine, the PowerForce 8, which is used to mill wind turbine stators with an internal diameter of 6.5 m. At the heart of the mill is a new, variable, universal milling head of orthogonal design with a drive power of 90 kW and a torque of up to 1,725 Nm. SHW relies on the new “Blue e” generation of cooling devices from Rittal to exploit every possible efficiency potential in enclosure climate control

Sims Metals Management selects WEG motor for shredder application
Sims Metals Management, the world’s largest electronics and metal recycling company, has once again chosen WEG to design, build and supply a new, bespoke, high voltage motor for its metal recycling operations in the UK. Designed to fit into the exact footprint of the legacy OEM equipment, the new 6.6kV, 3MW motor was the most cost effective option available for the giant shredder based in Newark, Nottinghamshire, which processes over 1,000 tonnes of scrap per day.
