FUKUDA Exhibits AEGIS Rings in Japan at MEX 2018

Fukuda exhibited AEGIS Shaft Grounding Ring Technology at MEX (Machinery & Electronics Exhibition) 2018 in Kanazawa, Japan

With their continued focus on technologies to improve motor reliability, Fukuda displayed AEGIS Shaft Grounding Rings and explained their benefits to the show's visitors.  All across Japan, including protection against electrical bearing damage on variable frequency driven (VFD) motors is quickly becoming the standard to improve reliability for industrial and commercial applications.  In fact, AEGIS rings are already incorporated in Fuji Electric and Toshiba motors, which have manufacturer-approved option programs to prevent.  As stated in a recent article by Frost and Sullivan's Krishna Raman, Industry Analyst in their Industrial Automation & Process Control business unit, "Electrical arcing can result in damage to bearing surface and premature aging of the lubricant. This adversely affects the performance and life of the bearing."


Solving this problem by incorporating an AEGIS Shaft Grounding Ring on the VFD driven motors protects both the motor's bearings and the attached equipment.
