Purpose-engineered FLANDERS AC drives and motors were the foundation of the DC to AC conversion we did on a 50-year-old Bucyrus Erie 770 dragline for a Kentucky coal company. The high-efficiency drop-in motors and drives that we used required no structural modifications, eliminated noisy DC generators, and delivered more power.
Less than a year after commissioning, the dragline was two months ahead of dig schedule, consistently outperforming newer machines.
A large international mill builder and automation provider enlisted FLANDERS to supply 110 DC drives and all related engineering, design, installation, and commissioning for a complete aluminum hot mill automation upgrade in Texarkana, Texas.
FLANDERS first performed a detailed engineering study to understand the mill’s performance requirements in depth, and determine the most cost-effective way to update the drive systems. Based on the study findings, our engineering team defined the optimal solution as
FLANDERS also provided an installation package that included around-the-clock installation supervision and assistance to ensure timely, successful completion of the project.
Highly satisfied with our comprehensive drive system solution for their hot mill, the client has since contracted with FLANDERS for several additional projects.
“FLANDERS upgrades can take a machine’s production and lifespan from good to great.
We work with your maintenance and production schedules to minimize interruptions and make sure the work is performed at the optimal time for your team.”
