Stamp Out Downtime with a Dynamatic® CES Press Drive Unit Dynamatic Mechanical CES Press Drives The CES (Constant Energy System) controller and eddy current mechanical drive unit are applied in stamping press applications. The name, Constant Energy System, is derived from the physical arrangement of the components of the system, the flywheel of the eddy-current drive, coupled to a constant speed motor. Therefore, constant kinetic energy is maintained in the flywheel. After the slide velocity is almost completely at rest, they provide the starting torque and braking action that are required without the need for physical contact between the [...]
Recent Refurbishment saves municipality money at pumping station for a New England Wastewater Service Plant In today’s market, it is not always necessary to replace the entire Eddy Current Variable Speed drive system. Budget restraints and construction costs on large projects can hinder a complete remodel of an operation. This has been the case for large-horsepower applications that require medium-voltage (2,300 or 4,160 volt) motors. Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) in these applications are large, expensive and often require space that must be added on to existing buildings and be equipped with air conditioning systems that consume more power. A [...]
Eddy Current Drives: First Choice for High Performance and Reliable Operation You have several choices when it comes to drive technologies. But when the cost of downtime enters the decision making, the field narrows… to eddy current. Why? Because no other drive system operates with such simplicity, with so few parts to wear out, and with so little maintenance. Once you pencil in the total cost of downtime for your process, the lost material, the lost labor, the lost output, you’ll see why many system designers and engineers specify high performance eddy current drives. Simplicity makes the difference. [...]
DSI/Dynamatic Partners with Hydraulic Institute for Webinar About Eddy Current. DSI/Dynamatic’s Gary Patterson is once again partnering with Hydraulic Institute (HI), the global authority on pumps and pumping systems, to help present their newest webinar about Eddy Current drives, on May 22, 2019. As the premier go-to expert of the benefits of Eddy Current technology, Gary Patterson recently, worked to update HI’s published Application Guideline for Variable Speed Pumping, authoring the appendix devoted to the specific technology of Eddy Current Drives (also known as magnetic drives, eddy current clutches or magnetic clutches). The approximately 45 minutes with 15 minutes [...]
Don’t Dismiss the Life Cycle Cost of Pump Drive Systems When municipalities are in the market for a new pump system there are many cost factors that need to be considered. Efficiency and acquisition cost of the drive system are generally the easiest to identify, but the one that is most often over looked is the Life Cycle cost of the system. The life cycle cost of a piece of equipment is defined as the sum of all costs associated with that equipment from the day it is purchased throughout its entire operating life. The costs that would need [...]

Patterson then became the Technical Specialist of the newly formed DSI/Dynamatic’s Pumps, Fan and Compressor group.Gary Patterson holds a BS degree in Electrical Engineering from Michigan Technological University, where he [...]
Dynamatic Variable Speed Eddy Current Drives and Controls Solve an Aging Infrastructure Problem After 36 years of service, the original controllers, at the Columbus Ohio pump station began to overheat. To compensate, the pump station installed temporary air conditioning to cool the controls. This kept them in service while they made plans for a permanent solution. An Engineering company was contracted to diagnose the problem. They recommend a solution, by designing extensive upgrades to the pump station, including refurbishments to the 41-year-old pumps. They decided that variable speed would still be required, thinking that VFDs would be the obvious choice. [...]
