Alpha Drives was recently tasked with an upgrade of a Ball Mill process. At the time the process ran with a 97 kW slip ring motor which our customer was looking to upgrade to improve performance and reliability.

Alpha Drives worked with the customer to come up with a reliable drive train with improved performance and better efficiency. We selected a Siemens SIMOTICS Severe Duty squirrel cage LV Motor and designed and built a new control panel with a 160Kw SINAMICS G120 PM240-2 with extra room in the control panel for heat dissipation All Calculations were made by Alpha Drives motor/drive team to ensure correct starting torque delivery to the mill.
