  • ABB selected by Electrify America to provide electric vehicle chargers

    ABB has been selected to supply its Terra HP charging stations as part of the biggest electric vehicle infrastructure project to date in the United States. The chargers, which can refresh even the largest electric vehicle battery in under 15 minutes, were selected for deployment by Electrify America, which plans to place hundreds of charging stations within and around 17 metropolitan areas and along multiple nationwide highway corridors.
  • ABB gearing wins Tata Steel's trust

    A Dodge Controlled Start Transmission drive delivers increased conveyor reliability and reduced maintenance at one of India’s largest iron ore mines. Reliability was the priority during a 2013 upgrade at Tata Steel’s Noamundi Iron Mine (NIM) in the Eastern Indian state of Jharkhand. This meant replacing an aging gearbox on their longest conveyor. The mine became the first in India to install a Dodge Controlled Start Transmission (CST) drive. Now, after five years of trouble-free performance they are ready to install three more units.
  • Permanently more efficient motors | External Link

    There are two things worth noting on how technology is changing motors. "One is the Internet of Things (IoT) trend," says Michael Offik, PE, director of packaged solutions at ABB. "The motors can be inexpensively monitored. The other is the continued push for power density and efficiency. When talking motors, that means you move from induction to something that uses permanent magnets to reduce losses."
  • ABB at OTC 2018 | Sustaining meaningful progress in a global energy landscape

    ABB is exhibiting at the largest global event for the oil and gas sector. The Offshore Technology Conference is where the world's energy professionals meet to exchange ideas and opinions to advance scientific and technical knowledge for offshore resources and environmental matters. It boasts more than 500,000 sq. ft of exhibit space, 70,000+ industry professionals, 2,000+ leading exhibitors, 300+ journalists, and over 100 speakers from around the world.
  • Motor And Drive Innovations Give Food Manufacturers More Power Options | External link

    Powering production in food plants is not as simple as throwing a switch. Peak-time charges, outages, surges and other factors can complicate calculations of cost and reliability and require solutions that go beyond standardizing on premium motors. The good news is that OEMs are delivering solutions on multiple fronts, from systems approaches to power delivery and servo options to sanitary design improvements and smart motors.
  • ABB and The Economist launch Automation Readiness Index

    Advanced automation can mean better, more meaningful jobs for humans. But even countries most ready for the future of work must rethink education and training to prepare people for the jobs of tomorrow, a new study finds.

  • Maintenance Sets the Pace in Food Manufacturing's Embrace of IIoT | External link

    In ways big and small, food manufacturing is tapping into the promise and potential of internet-based tools and applications that address some of the most nettlesome problems in plant operations. At least two makers of AC induction motors are introducing moderately priced sensors for monitoring temperature, current and vibration, a capability reserved in years past for large machinery that would have catastrophic consequences if they went down. One of these condition-monitoring tools, the ABB Smart Sensor, soon will be able to continuously relay data to the cloud for analysis and reporting of maintenance alerts.
  • Best Places to Work in Manufacturing | External link

    Greenville-Anderson-Mauldin takes second place due to strong growth in manufacturing employment over the past few years. From 2010 – 2015, the number of manufacturing jobs in the area grew by 37.8%, a figure beaten by only 5% of metro areas in our study. The growth in jobs is accompanied by growing incomes. From 2014 to 2015 the average income for a manufacturing worker here grew by 14.7%. That’s the 13th-fastest rate.
  • Take (and keep) the load off bearings | External link

    Element material selection is a critical component in the design process for any elastomeric coupling. This is no different for axially split tire elements. Some manufacturers use a high-load-capacity polyurethane bonded to metal clamp rings. At first glance, this material would appear to be a wise choice; polyurethane is a very strong material, and the primary function of a coupling is to transmit torque.
