Robust design raises the standard for hygienic, washdown servomotors and cables for food, beverage, pharma and caustic chemical environments

RADFORD, VA – Kollmorgen announces that its line of robust stainless steel AKMH™ servomotors has been selected as a Golden Mousetrap Finalist in the Automation and Control category. The Awards celebrate the companies, products, and people who are energizing North American design, engineering, and manufacturing. The Golden Mousetrap Awards were announced at the Golden Mousetraps Ceremony held February 11, 2014 at the Anaheim Marriott.

Design News' industry leading editors worked tirelessly to go through the many entries received to come up with the products most deserving to be on our list of finalists. The finalist entries were then sent to the entire editorial team, as well as our distinguished Advisory Board to choose the winners.

"We are confident that the Kollmorgen AKMH Servomotor is the best-performing and longest-lasting stainless-steel washdown motor in the industry today. These motors combine industry-leading performance and a robust hygienic design to deliver reliable and consistent performance that can be the difference between a commodity product and differentiated machine for OEMs," says Gene Matthews, Product Manager. "The innovative design of AKMH helps end-users over the long haul by simplifying sanitation requirements and minimizing the potential for contamination. In turn, this helps companies protect their brands by reducing the risk of devastating product recalls."

Designed specifically to address the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), these IP69K rated synchronous servomotors feature a hygienic housing design that meets EHEDG, NSF, BISSC, USDA and 3A guidelines. The AKMH Servomotor is constructed with materials to provide long-life and trouble-free operation, even with daily exposure to chemicals and high pressure washdowns. AKMH's single-cable solution reduces the number of potential failure modes and minimizes installation time. The smooth surface design, and use of highly corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel, decreases the risk of product recalls by reducing the possibility of bacteria growth. The AKMH requires no additional protection and can be sanitized without covering it or removing it from the machine. As a result, food, beverage, packaging, medical, pharmaceutical and converting OEMs can design and build more reliable and productive machines that are easier and faster to clean, thus minimizing unscheduled downtime for end users.

Available as a Complete and Optimized Package

AKMH Servomotors can be combined with an AKDŽ servo drive or AKDŽ PDMM for a completely optimized, high performance motion system that delivers a distinct competitive advantage for OEMs, and brings cost savings to end-users through increased reliability and reduced cleaning time. Kollmorgen is so confident in the quality and performance of the AKMH/AKD combination that the company backs it with a two year warranty against water ingress –the best warranty in the industry.
