1. 5 Induction Motor Advantages

    Nearly 70 percent of machines in industries around the globe use induction motors to function, specifically three-phase induction motors. These motors use an electromagnetic field (emf) to induce rotation. Induction motors use AC to power their momentum, which lends itself to implementing a DC injection brake to slow or stop the motor. When it comes to safety, induction motors function better with…Read More

  2. A Brief History of Moulding Machines
