Motors for Metal Rolling Mills

AC adjustable speed motor drive systems are the preferred technology for new rolling mill installations and modernization projects. TMEIC designs and manufactures two types of AC solutions for this purpose. Salient pole synchronous motors that meet the high power and torque demands of a hot strip mill, as well as roughing and finishing stands. Excellent torque characteristics Superior efficiency Unit power factor Easy to control Squirrel cage rotor motor applied to medium power requirements of reels and stands. Extremely robust construction Excellent torque characteristics on ultra-low speed rolling applications Constant power output throughout field weakening range Meets NEMA MG1 and JEM 1157 standards. These motors have: Superior efficiency Robust frame and shaft construction Less demand for maintenance High degree of control and responsiveness Great capacity for acceleration and deceleration. Greater flexibility for extreme operating conditions
