Despite claims from makers of a-c and brushless d-c drives, not all extruder manufacturers are ready to write off brush-type d-c systems.
says that a-c drives may have limited potential extrusion because of possible thermal problems in lower speed ranges.
He disputes the claim that prices are coming down enough to justify the advantages of a-c controllers.
which supplies both brush-type d-c and a-c inverter drives, points to other alternatives to compensate for the former's shortcomings.
A-C inverters, he says, have a more limited torque range at lower speeds, and may require oversized motors and drives.
