Columbus Insurance, Inc., has honored Yaskawa with the Risk Control Award of Excellence in the manufacturing sector. This is the second consecutive year that Yaskawa has received an award as a manufacturer who has implemented risk controls that yield an industry-leading workers compensation claims frequency rate for the past five years. Other metrics used to select the award winner include annual safety audit scores, employee engagement in safety programs, and net risk-sharing with the other group captive members.

An affiliate of Captive Resources, Columbus Insurance Ltd. is a group captive comprised of over 140 diverse companies with outstanding safety records who form together to control their workman compensation insurance costs and develop organizational cultures that exemplify the best safety and loss prevention practices.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.
