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

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
