Trust Automation Contributes to the Success of MacroAir AirVolution-D

Most Powerful and Efficient HVLS Fan on the Market

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif., Oct. 20, 2014 -- Trust Automation, Inc., the world's leading developer of linear servo drives, creator of custom and standard high precision motion, motor control and system design as well as complete power train devices for multiple industries, today announced its successful contribution to MarcoAir's AirVolution-D containing a unique topology compact electric motor capable of handling the consistent torque requirements of a 24-foot diameter industrial fan in a gearless direct drive (D-Drive) system.


The fan delivers 50% greater continuous horsepower than current High-Volume Low-Speed (HVLS) fans on the market. D-Drive eliminates the need for a gearbox, making it 45% lighter and containing fewer moving parts. AirVolution-D is the most reliable, most efficient, lightest, quietest HVLS fan line on the market today (http://macroairfans.com/airvolutiond/).

"Trust Automation is known for its ability to design and develop custom solutions for the most difficult projects," said Dave Rennie, Vice President of Business Development. "We engineered and manufactured system solutions to contribute to an advanced technology finished product for MacroAir."

Custom Solutions Provided by Trust Automation www.trustautomation.com:

*The custom designed "donut shaped" controller/drive exactly fits the circular motor/heatsink housing
*Advanced firmware, Digital Signal Processor (DSP) and power electronics take full advantage of the unique motor topology, operating sensorlessly at high torque and very low speed
*Controller efficiencies reaching extremely high system efficiencies
*Advanced thermal management, low air flow, -10 degrees C to +60 degrees C operation
*Wide AC voltage input range of 100-600VAC, allowing a single controller design across entire range
*NEMA 67 rated drive assembly for wash-down

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
