Dry-Lin SLN linear slide table system from Igus is good for food packaging machinery applications because it does away with lubricants that could become contaminants. Linear slide table can be designed with a stepper motor and encoder integrated into it.
AKMH motor from Kollmorgen is designed to be most hygienic in the market. Can be put directly in the wash down area and sprayed with water and cleaning chemicals. Stainless steel housing. Single cable for power and feedback. Unique breathing tube in the cable makes it possible to ventilate the motor as it goes through its thermal cycles.
The 1FK7 servo motor from Siemens is developed with field-replaceable encoders that make for quick and easy on-site service with no special tools or recalibration required. Modular design permits the swapping of incremental encoder with an absolute encoder right in the field, without sending the unit back to the factory. Also shown is Sinamics S120M that integrates motor and drive right in the same unit, ideal for vertical form/fill/seal machines, flow wrappers, rotary capping machines, filling machines, and other packaging equipment.
Aerotech’s PlanarDL series of integrated, low-profile, XY, linear-motor stages offers quality geometric performance (straightness to ±0.4 µm; flatness to ±1 µm), and dynamic performance in a compact, low-profile, cost-effective package.
A pre-set list of integrated Simotics motor/Sinamics drive packages from Siemens Industry, Inc. allow an OEM or end-user to select the optimum solution for a variety of heavy-duty industrial motion control applications from a single source, backed by a full three-year warranty.
