Kollmorgen Europe GmbH (Germany) - The AKM servo motors from KOLLMORGEN are among the best on the market with their flexible usage options and performance. The new generation presented as a concept by the specialist in servo drive technology and motion control at SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg is capable of even more - KOLLMORGEN has increased the power density of the AKM2G by up to 30 percent.
The increased power density with an improved torque/speed ratio is primarily the result of the optimized winding technology. KOLLMORGEN has thereby managed to reduce the copper losses for the windings. The advantages: Improved energy efficiency as well as room for more performance with the same installed size. The AKM2G motors also feature smoother cogging behavior, which also ultimately improves the control accuracy.
The new generation of synchronous servo motors will be launched in 2017 and will initially feature six design sizes with performance levels between 0,3 and 10 kW. The AKM2G motors can be fitted with different feedback systems and are primarily provided with single-cable connection technology. As a result of the modular structure of the range, KOLLMORGEN is better able to adapt the 2nd generation motors to the requirements of a specific application in parallel with series production. Machine builders are thereby able to use drives that fit like bespoke drives without compromise – especially in combination with the servo controllers from the AKD2G range.
