  • MROstop.com's Guide to Mitsubishi VFDs

    Mitsubishi VFD Overview

    this lens' photo

    Mitsubishi VFDs achieve high precision and fast responses that exceed the performance of conventional general-purpose inverters. Mitsubishi VFD's can be used in specialized applications such as line control and elevators. By incorporating our original all-digital vector control, high starting torque and high speed response have been made possible for both velocity and torque control modes. The following is a run-down of currently available products.

    Mitsubishi A700 VFD

    Mitsubishi A700 VFDThe Mitsubishi A700 VFD is a high performance drive that replaces the popular A500(L) series. The Mitsubishi A700 VFD features many of the special technologies originally developed for Mitsubishi Electric servo drive products, such as adaptive auto-tuning that automatically compensates for changes in load inertia. The result is smoother operation, less downtime and ultimately, lower operating costs. Control modes include Velocity, Torque and Positioning. Real Sensorless Vector allows Zero speed holding torque and torque control without the need for an encoder. Mitsubishi's 'Real Sensorless Vector' or RSV motor control system provides unequalled dynamic performance, ensuring a wider speed range, smoother operation and lower motor currents than ever before. RSV starts with a highly accurate motor 'map', obtained during an auto-tune procedure which applies alternating voltage to the motor and determines critical motor characteristics. At the heart of RSV is the Adaptive Flux Observer system which compares actual motor behavior during operation with the theoretical model. Instead of a response to a change in load or speed being fixed, any variations between the theoretical and the actual motor response measured in operation are analyzed by the Flux Observer, which constantly refines the motor map as speed and load conditions change.- Wide Speed Range: 200:1 operating range is possible - even when the drive is used 'open loop'
    - PLC Feature: A700 programmability provides true intelligence inside the drive - a simple solution for complex applications
    - Easy Gain Tuning: Compensates automatically for changes in load inertia to ensure smooth and consistent operation
    - Fast Response: Up to 300 radians / second speed response means lightning fast reaction to sudden load changes
    - USB Port: Allows simple connection to the new FR-Configurator Software for quick and easy commissioning
    - Power Down Braking: Keeps the motor under control even if the supply power is lost

  • Precautions with Firestone Marsh Mellow™ Springs

    Temperature
    Firestone standard industrial Marsh Mellow™ springs have an operating range of -40°F to 135°F (-40°C to 57°C).
    The upper limit is defined by the actual rubber temperature during operation.  High frequency inputs
    or large deflections will cause the rubber temperature to increase.

    Design Envelope
    Adequate clearance should be provided around the Marsh Mellow spring to prevent rubbing of the outer
    cover.  The outside diameter of the spring at various heights is listed in the table of dynamic characteristics
    on each individual data page.

    Contaminates
    Shielding should be used to protect the rubber from exposure to hot metal, petroleum base fluids, acids,
    etc.  Please consult Firestone Industrial Products if you wish to know how the spring will withstand a
    specific contaminate.  (For liquids such as acids, it is important to know both concentration and
    temperature.)

    Storage
    The best storage environment is a dark, dry area at normal room temperature.

    Percent Compression
    The general compression range of a Marsh Mellow spring is 15% to 27%, however this value may vary
    somewhat among springs and applications. Always follow the load ranges and their corresponding
    compression percentages as shown in the selection guide.

    Allowable Stroke
    When applying a Marsh Mellow spring, the stroke throughout the range of motion of the machine being
    isolated must be considered.  Delta strain, defined as the ratio of the stroke to the free length, is restricted
    to less than 7.5%.

    Note that a given stroke is typical of vibrating screen types of applications, where the stroke is designed into
    the system.  In other isolation applications, this stroke may not be known. The stroke is typically not
    excessive in standard isolation applications, but should be considered. Consult Firestone for
    assistance.

    Disturbing Frequency Range
    Marsh Mellow springs are suitable for disturbing frequencies in the 800-1200 CPM (13-20Hz) range
    or medium stroke applications.  High frequency, high stroke applications may lead to overheating the Marsh
    Mellow spring.  Low stroke applications, however, are capable of handling higher disturbing frequencies.
    Please consult Firestone Industrial Products for assistance.

    Lateral Stability
    The lateral spring rate to load ratio for a Marsh Mellow spring decreases as deflection increases.  This is one reason it is important not to exceed the given load capabilities.

    Center of Gravity
    A Marsh Mellow™ spring isolation system is inherently soft (easily deflected); therefore, precautions must be
    taken to insure that the system is stable. First consider the location of the center of gravity (CG). Ideally, Marsh
    Mellow springs should be located on the same plane (parallel to the ground) as the center of gravity. Where
    this is not possible, follow this guideline: The distance between the narrowest mounting points should be at
    least twice the height of the center of gravity.

    In the above example, the most narrow distance between two Marsh Mellow springs is 46 inches
    (117 cm). The height to the CG is 48 inches (122 cm); therefore, this system does not meet Firestone's guidelines.  Two possible solutions would be:

    1. Increase the base dimensions to meet Firestone guidelines
    by increasing both the width and length to at least 48 x 2 or 96 inches (122 x 2 or 244 cm).
    2. Locate the Marsh Mellow Spring at the CG as shown below.

    Startup and Shutdown / Resonance and Amplification
    Resonance is the condition where the forced frequency of the vibrating system is equal to the
    natural frequency of the suspension. When this happens, amplification of movement occurs. If the
    normal stroke of a vibrating screen, for example, is 5/16 of an inch (8 mm), during startup and shutdown
    (as the machine goes through resonance), the amplitude of movement will be multiplied. So while
    the machine is accelerating to normal operating speed and decelerating during shutdown, the stroke may be
    amplified in the range of 1⁄2 (12 mm) to 11⁄2 (38 mm) inches. The longer the machine takes to go through
    resonance (to speed up to, or slow down from full operating speed), the larger the amplitude of
    movement. Note that in some applications, the addition of viscous or friction dampers may be
    required to reduce the amplitude of motion during startup and shutdown.

    Isolating an Unbalanced Mass
    The primary concern in this case is the amplitude of movement. It is dependent on:
    1. The ratio of the unbalanced moving mass to the total suspended mass.
    2. The ratio of the speed of the unbalanced moving mass (forced frequency) to the natural frequency
    of the Marsh Mellow spring and supported mass system.
    The addition of damping to the isolation system (“shock absorbers”) will reduce the large amplitude
    of movement experienced during resonance. If the amplitude of movement is too great, one
    possible solution would be to add a static inertia base in order to increase the ratio of the total suspended
    mass to the moving unbalanced mass. A good “rule of thumb” is 10:1, respectively.




  • MROstop's guide to Firestone Air Springs

    What is an Air Spring?

    Firestone Air SpringsFirestone Airstroke Air bags and Airmount Isolators offer short-stroke, high-force and single-acting pneumatic actuation for applications such as conveyors, lift tables and work holding devices. An air spring is a carefully designed rubber/fabric bellows which contains a column of compressed air. The rubber bellows itself does not provide force or support load. This is done by the column of air. Firestone air springs are highly engineered elastomeric bellows with specially designed metal end closures.  Many Firestone air springs are also available in high strength construction for higher pressures. In this case, there are four plies of fabric-reinforced rubber, with an inner liner and outer cover. The two ply air spring is standard. Each air spring bellows is identified by a style number. This style number is molded into the bellows during the curing (or vulcanization) process. Examples would be 16, 22, 313, 1T15M-6, etc... This identifies only the rubber/fabric bellows and not the complete assembly. There are several different end closure options available for most air springs; therefore, please always specify both the style number and the complete assembly order number (AON). An example would be: Style #22, assembly order number W01-M58-6180.

    So, Really...What is an Air Spring?

    Firestone developed the air spring in the late 1930's as a more efficient air spring (vibration isolator) for use in vehicle suspensions. Airide springs, as they were named, provided the means for a suspension to reduce the amount of road shock and vibration transmitted into the vehicle. Millions of miles of actual use have proven the dependability and effectiveness of the air suspension concept using Airide springs by Firestone.

    Airstroke actuators, Airmount isolators, and Airide springs are Firestone registered trademark names for one product: the air spring.  The use of the air spring (actuator, industrial isolator and vehicular isolator, respectively) determines which name is applied to it.

    All of the parts on this site may be used as Airstroke actuators (except the 1X84D-1 and 2M1A) or Airmount isolators, with two exceptions: Triple convoluted and reversible sleeve type air springs (except the 1M1A-0) should not be used as Airmount isolators without consulting Firestone. Individual Airstroke actuators and Airmount isolators are capable of generating a force or supporting a load of up to 100,000 pounds, and a stroke capability of up to 14 inches is possible.


    Using Firestone Air Springs as Airstroke Actuators

    Firestone Airstroke Actuators are like cylinders. They are different looking, and they do not work exactly like the well-known and accepted JIC cylinder. Functionally, however, air springs perform the same type of actuation tasks. Firestone Airstroke actuators have long been used in the industrial market as pneumatic actuators incorporated into new and innovative machinery designs as well as replacement actuators for existing applications that had previously used traditional pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders. These replacement markets are created by the advantages of a flexible walled pneumatic actuator that is durable, operates well in corrosive and abrasive industrial environments, easily accepts misalignment, and has a high ratio of stroke to collapsed height. Each of these features give Firestone Airstroke actuators the advantage over traditional cylinders. Why use an Airstroke actuator (rather than air or hydraulic cylinder) for actuation?

    • LOW COST - Generally, initial cost is one-half or less than conventional pneumatic or hydraulic cylin­ders of the same force capabilities. This initial cost advantage is many times greater in the larger sizes.
    • WIDE SIZE RANGE - Airstroke actuators are available in sizes ranging from 2.2 inches to 37 inches in diameter. The force capability is 100,000 pounds. Strokes of up to 14 inches are possible.
    • DURABLE FOR LONG LIFE - Airstroke actuators are a further application of Firestone's time proven Airide springs for truck and bus suspensions. The long life and durability necessary for millions of miles of heavy duty suspension use under adverse environmental conditions are also important factors in machine design.
    • NO MAINTENANCE OR LUBRICATION REQUIRED NO INTERNAL ROD OR PISTON - Airstroke actuators have no internal rod, piston, or sliding seals as do conventional cylinders. This allows for the design of Airstroke actuators into applications where dirt or grit would destroy the seals on conventional cylinders.
    • FRICTION FREE FOR - IMMEDIATE RESPONSE - Since Airstroke actuators have no sliding seals, there is no breakaway friction as with conventional cylinders
    • FLEXIBLE MEDIA - An Airstroke actuator can do its work with either a liquid or gas (Please see page 14 for acceptable media choices.)
    • ANGULAR CAPABILITY - An Airstroke possesses the unique capability of stroking through an arc without a clevis. Angular motion of up to 30 degrees is possible, along with the design advantage of generally less complex linkages.
    • SIDE LOADING CAPABILITY - Airstroke actuators, within certain limits, are not affected by side loads as are conventional cylin­ders. This misalignment capability eliminates potential rod bending, scoring, and excessive seal wear common to conventional cylinders.
    • COMPACT STARTING HEIGHT - Airstroke actuators have a low profile compared to conventional cylinders. Our smallest Airstroke actuator (2.2 inch/dia.) collapses to just 1.1 inches in height, while our largest triple convoluted Airstroke (37 inch/dia.) will collapse to a very com­pact 5.5 inches.
    • FACTORY SEALED AND TESTED - Most Airstroke actuators feature Firestone's proven concept of crimped end plates. The crimped design allows for preshipment testing and quicker installa­tion on equipment.

     

    Using Firestone Air Springs as Airmount Isolators

    What is a Firestone Isolator?  A Firestone Airmount Isolator is a device that prevents one object from affecting another. The Isolator allows both objects to exist in their natural state without influence from the other. With a Firestone Airmount isolator, one of the objects is allowed to vibrate without transmitting all of the energy of that vibration to the other object. For many years, Firestone has been in the business of designing and developing a wide range of mounts and supports to isolate vibrations that are detrimental to many industrial and manufacturing environments.  Why use an Airmount isolator rather than a coil spring or other type of isolator?

    • UNSURPASSED ISOLATION CAPABILITY - Airmount isolators can provide the highest degree of isolation of any type vibration isolator. System natural frequencies as low as 60 cycles per minute (1 Hertz) are available. The addition of an auxiliary reservoir can provide even lower system frequencies. In order to achieve similar results from a conventional coil spring isolator, a real deflection of 9 inches would be required.
    • CONSTANT ISOLATION EFFICIENCY - Airmount isolators are unique in that the system's natural frequency does not change significantly with changes in load. This unique feature, combined with accurate height control, will allow the use of the same Airmount isolator at each mounting point of an unevenly loaded machine.
    • ACCURATE HEIGHT CONTROL - Airmount isolators provide accurate height control through regulation of internal air pressure. This feature eliminates the fatigue and permanent set found in the use of other types of vibration isolators.
    • WIDE SIZE RANGE - Airmount isolators are capable of isolating loads of 100 pounds per mounting point to over 100,000 pounds per mounting point.
    • COMPACT INSTALLED HEIGHT - Airmount isolators can carry the loads and provide the isolation described above at installed heights as low as 2.5 inches. Coil springs providing equal isolation would require a free height of 5 to 25 inches.
    • EXTENDED EQUIPMENT LIFE - Airmount isolators extend equipment life through their superior isolation capabilities.
    • EFFECTIVE NOISE REDUCTION - Airmount isolators reduce structurally transmitted noise. Airmount isolators are also quiet in themselves, since there is no spring chatter as found in conventional coil springs.
    • VERSATILE - Airmount isolators can be used not only to protect structural members from vibrating machinery, but are also widely used to protect delicate equipment from structurally transmitted vibration.
