Linear Motor Stages feature anti-creep linear guideway.

March 3, 2014

Available in 4 models that deliver 25, 50, 100, or 150 mm travel, MMG Series features 10 kg load capacity, uncompensated accuracy from 6–14 µm, and resolution from 1.0 µm to 5 nm. Integrated feedback encoder eliminates need for compensation tables or slope correction, while Z axis counterbalance kit eliminates engineering required to integrate Z option. Leveraging standard 3-phase brushless motor, stages can be used in constant velocity or high throughput point-to-point applications. Read More

Decentralized Servo Drive System minimizes cable use.

February 24, 2014

Suitable for packaging machines and production systems, Model AKD-N leverages IP67-rated drives positioned next to motor and supplied by central power module located in switchgear cabinet. Hybrid cable, measuring 11 mm in diameter, delivers power and fieldbus communication to servo drives, enabling them to operate directly in series, supplying up to 4 kW per axis. Integrated into system, Safe Torque Off functionality can be deactivated on individual or collective basis. Read More

Safe Motion Modules ensure machines run in safe manner.

October 3, 2013

Combining Machine Safety logic and Safe Motion into one package, Kollmorgen Safety Modules™ operate with Kollmorgen’s motors and transmissions, servo and inverter drives, and machine/motion controllers. Units are capable of 15 Safe Motion functions, such as Safe Torque Off, Safe Stops, Safe Limited Speed, Safe Limited Position, and Safe Brake Control. Each module can monitor feedback devices such as resolvers and both single- and multi-turn versions of EnDat™, BiSS, and HIPERFACE® devices. Read More

Stainless Steel Servomotors have washdown-resistant design.

September 20, 2013

Designed to address Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), AKMH™ stainless steel, IP69K-rated, synchronous servomotors feature hygienic housing designed to meet EHEDG, NSF, BISSC, and 3A machinery guidelines. These products, built to survive daily exposure to chemicals and high-pressure washdowns, do not require any additional protection and can be sanitized without covering or removal from machine.

Synchronous Servomotors feature stainless steel construction.

August 27, 2013

Addressing Food Safety Modernization Act, AKMH™ corrosion-resistant, 316L stainless steel motors carry IP69K rating and have hygienic housing design that meets EHEDG, NSF, BISSC, and 3A guidelines. Materials of construction withstand daily exposure to chemicals as well as high-pressure washdowns, and single cable reduces number of potential failure modes while minimizing installation time. Continuous torques ranges from 0.3–22 Nm and thousands of standard configurations are available. Read More

Ethernet-Based Servo Drives help simplify machine design.

February 12, 2013

AKD® PDMM and AKD® BASIC are scalable solutions that let designers leverage one drive platform to satisfy motion needs, from single-axis control up to 128 axes of fully programmable and tightly synchronized motion, across machine designs. Products have common GUI across power range (up to 24 Arms continuous and 48 Arms peak) and offer pug-and-play commissioning. Range of connectivity and control options include EtherCAT®, EtherNet/IP™, CANopen®, Profinet, Analog, and pulse train command. Read More

Compact Servo Motor integrates single-axis motion controller.

October 19, 2012

Via integrated motion controller, AKD® BASIC Ethernet-based servo drives offer camming, s-curve, and free-form motion profile capabilities. These, combined with BASIC programming language and built-in Program Editor with debugging tools, help machine builders execute complex processes. Built-in machine control lets design engineers eliminate some small to medium PLCs from machine, reducing associated wiring, components, and panel space. Read More
