Knowing that an outdated dragline needed new electric rotating equipment, a North Carolina phosphate mine turned planned downtime for a machine move into a major productivity gain moving forward.
FLANDERS was asked to upgrade the drives and motors from outdated DC technology to state-of-the-art AC, while the machine was out of commission for the move.
We provided 5 drive lineups and 16 motors for the dragline conversion, yielding a 14.5 MW peak power machine. The renewed dragline—which now requires half the monthly power system maintenance—is significantly more productive and efficient.
Seeking a lean way to increase production to meet demand for its product in the automotive industry, an aluminum mill approached FLANDERS about the best way to achieve that with minimal investment.
After evaluating the production line, FLANDERS recommended using the existing power section and upgrading to a digital control unit for a 2,000 HP motor. This resulted in:
