Energy efficient drives in the spotlight of the machine-builders
Nearly a third of the machine-builders is planning to implement energy efficient drives this year. So the last year’s trend is to continue intensified.
With 30% of the machine-builders the value is by 20% higher than previous year as it stood at 25%.
The machine-builders are checking different approaches to higher energy efficiency. Some keywords are: use of permanent-field motors in place of three-phase motors, use of frequency converters with regeneration or use of frequency converters at three-phase motors unregulated used so far, and other things.
There are also counter trends. There are machine-builders that critically check the total situation of the machine and its operation mode arriving at the conclusion that energy efficient drives do not prove their worth for the customer at present.
These current trends of the pros and cons regarding energy efficient drives are published in the Quest Trend Magazine Online on http://www.quest-trendmagazin.de/...
So the Quest Trend Magazine makes the machine-builders’ decisions easier. Now the machine-builders can compare their intended changes with the trends in their own sector confirming or adjusting their intentions.
The suppliers of automation technology are learning beyond their constituency, which changes in energy efficient drives the machinery industry as a whole is aiming for this year. This enables the suppliers to meet the demand trends in time and purposefully.
The trends from the users’ point of view are based on market surveys of Quest TechnoMarketing, Bochum, London, with the title “What the machine-builders want to change in the automation technology 2010”. This survey was carried out in January/February and covered scarcely 250 representative machine-builders. Highlight, table of contents and budget of the study are on http://www.qtm.de/...
