Plastic Injection Feeder

February 13, 2012

A manufacturer of injection and blending systems for plastic augers came to Groschopp for help. They knew they needed a variety of motors that could run on either AC or DC voltages, but they weren’t sure which application requirements to focus on. Groschopp worked with the OEM to identify the top priority specifications for each of the motors, and fit them with both 90 VDC and 115 VAC parallel shaft gearmotors. Each of these had three different reducer sizes. Once the gear motor solutions were determined, Groschopp was able to achieve a 48-hour turnaround time for the proof of concept.


Challenges

  • AC/DC voltages
  • Short lead time
  • Varying reducer sizes for multiple applications

Solution

  • 90VDC or 115VAC motor with the same parallel shaft gearbox
  • Three different size options
  • 48-hour prototype for proof of concept

How to use the Motor Search Tool

Narrow your search by selecting motor type, gearbox, voltage, and phase options for your desired motor.

Select a dominant variable: choose one of the three parameters to narrow your search. The selected variable determines which slider bar you will be able to manually move.

Use the slider corresponding to your dominant variable to further narrow your motor selection. The other sliders will automatically move to show available ranges based on the range of your selected variable.

Results will upload as your search criteria changes. If you have any questions regarding your results or how to use the search tool, you can chat with us using the green tab on the left-hand side of your screen.


Note: Groschopp Universal motors are custom built to fit your application so no additional options are available to narrow the search. Selecting the Universal motor type will prompt a message taking you to the Universal product page.
