This category of industrial equipment includes a broad variety of applications where controlled rotation - sometimes quite precise - demands automation and variable speed drive/motor technology.
Not THAT kind of spinning
Even today in America, the word "spinning" might still evoke the image of textile fiber spinning. If you happened to land here looking for that, please visit our Solutions for Textiles page.
The operating principles for these types of machines are basically to separate solids / liquids from one another or to segregate materials into various sizes for different industries. Fields of application range from separating processes in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, through oil and fat recovery, to the production of dairy products, beer, wine, fruit and vegetable juices, as well as processing mineral oil
and mineral oil products
What goes around comes around
As aging equipment becomes less efficient and more costly to maintain, new ways must be found to protect the bottom line. That’s why safety, reliability, and cost-efficient solutions are at the forefront for equipment like centrifuges, mixers, blenders, kneaders and many other production and processing applications.
Many factors go into optimizing these machines while delivering more satisfactory results to both manufacturers and users. High starting torque and at different speeds, combined with precise speed control, are requirements for any batch, whether mixing / blending / separating any solids or liquids. The SINAMICS G variable frequency drive series deliver precise control to your spinning processes, ensuring the best quality products from start to finish while maximizing production speed and process up-time. Scalable control and machine/recipe flexibility can be achieved when pairing SINAMICS drives with the Siemens automation portfolio, including a selection of PLCs, remote I/Os and operator panels. Siemens products integrate seamlessly with each other to provide best-in-class solutions for individual equipment, or for your entire production system through Siemens' Totally Integrated Automation concept.
