The Agriculture Industry includes the farming and cultivation of plants as well as the raising of livestock. Agronomy and Animal Husbandry are equally demanding, and KB Drives have operated equipment and machinery for this life-sustaining industry for many years.
KB Electronics' drives are used in countless applications for the Automation Industry to reduce manual labor. Many of the KB drives have customizable software as well as built-in PLC functions for automating machinery and equipment.
To bring food to the table, and drinks to complement them, the Food and Beverage Industry can be quite demanding in the production of foods and beverages. Applications include processing and cooking foods, regulating flows when dispensing beverages, pumping fluids to bottle beverages, regulating equipment for beer brewing and batch control, or cleaning equipment such as dishwashers.
Most HVAC Industry applications are for original equipment manufacturers and often require unique and demanding performance and operations of the drive. Some applications include high volume low speed air moving fans used in stadiums and large venues; exhaust fans used in restaurant kitchens and livestock buildings; special effects fans used in Hollywood; and filtration, air cooling, and misting systems.
KB Electronics' drives, with NEMA 4X / IP65 enclosures, are especially suitable for the Knife Grinding Industry. These enclosures provide exceptional protection from the dust and metallic particles created during the various processes from the sanding belts, sanding stones, and polishers.
KB Drives are ideal for numerous applications requiring ventilation and exhausts and pumping water for irrigation, and waste management. The Livestock Industry also pertains to animals raised for recreational activities such as racing or riding. Training "horse walkers," for example, use KB Drives.
Most applications in the Packaging Industry involve a speed control strategy in which the drive regulates the operating speed at a setpoint that may be adjusted from time to time. KB Electronics’ drives are designed to accommodate the rapid changes, rising cost, and the numerous challenges faced by the packaging industry today.
