Electrical Contacts: a small force
behind a big, dirty job.
Moving the Earth with Cranes and ConveyorsThey are small items that help keep large conveyors and cranes moving. This equipment moves heavy objects and they’re the force behind the manufacture of earth-moving equipment, like tractors.
What are they?
Electrical contacts are electrical replacement parts for motor controls in cranes and conveyors that stop, start, move and lift even the heaviest tractor components. Despite their relatively small size, electrical contact
ors’ important function and low cost plays to their advantage considering their role in motion control systems on the tractor plant floor.
How on Earth Does It Work?When a machine operator in the tractor plant starts the conveyor or crane, electrical current energizes a magnetic coil in an electrical contactor. This causes contacts within the contactor to mate. This completes a circuit to start electric motors in floor and ceiling-mounted cranes or conveyors.
A Back Up Plan for Electrical InventoryOEM lead times on electrical contactor replacement parts can be 4-6 weeks or more. To keep production lines operational, regular maintenance is performed on the equipment, and good back-up parts inventories are required.
This is where a knowledge-based trusted supplier can help to fill gaps in the supply chain to keep manufacturing lines plowing along while keeping costs down to earth.
