ERD and Hannover Messe 2016 Announcement

ERD is proud to be partnered with the United States of America at Hannover Messse 2016 in Germany.


An industrial giant returns to its former strength


It may be hard to believe, but the USA is making its debut as the Partner Country at the world’s largest industrial technology event. For HANNOVER

MESSE, winning the United States as the Partner Country is a great success – one which will further enhance the attractiveness of the next year’s event. “President Obama has committed himself to strengthening America’s domestic industry. The modernization of America’s industrial sector and the digital integration of its production plants and equipment are proceeding there at a rapid pace,” reports Dr. Jochen Köckler, member of the

managing board at Deutsche Messe. “The goal of the U.S. government is to regain its status as one of the world’s leading production locations, which predestines the United States as next Partner Country at HANNOVER MESSE.”

IRT 1318-Rack Axis Servo Drive Repair by ERD

Repaired and setup to test IRT 1318 Rack

Repaired and setup to test IRT 1318 Rack

This unit is a Irt 1318-Rack AC Servo Drive with 18Amp of output power and was repaired under our 3 Year Warranty Repair program.  This drive was completely rebuilt from top to bottom and the major failures were problems in the power supply stage. After repair we hooked up the drive to our Baldor 6 pole Servo motor and tested it fully as shown in the video. This particular repair took 3 days to complete as it was a RUSH. The 1318 series of drive is found primarily in the robot industry (Irt is owned by REIS) with this particular drive being an axis servo on a Mazak machine tool.



Repairs Performed:

Last Day Lunch in Beijing



Wonderful  lunch in downtown Beijing at the Great Wall Restaurant

Driving around China

Well I have to say – renting a driver with a VW Passat is the way to go!!!




Exploring the Forbidden City

Here are a few images of a truly grand scale place…..








Long day of seeing ancient China

Today we experienced a great tour of both the Great Wall and the Forbidden City.

We hired a private car and headed out early in the morning – arriving at the Great Wall north east of Beijing. We decided not to walk up and instead took the tram to the top – and then walked for over an hour down and back up the stretch of the wall we were at.

No picture can capture the beauty and the sheer awesome accomplishment of building a structure along a mountain peak.
