Kollmorgen Safety Modules™ (KSM) help OEMs deliver higher productivity by combining Machine Safety logic and Safe Motion into one powerful package that integrates seamlessly with Functional Safety Devices.
Designed to address the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), Kollmorgen’s new line of robust stainless steel AKMH synchronous servomotors are IP69K rated, and feature a hygienic housing designed to meet EHEDG, NSF, BISSC, and 3A machinery guidelines.
Delivering up to 128 axes of complex, fully programmable and synchronized motion, the AKD PDMM and AKD BASIC servo drive family from Kollmorgen provide high-performance, scalable motion solutions that enable OEMs to simplify the design, reduce the size, and improve the performance of machines.
The new Kollmorgen Servo System Catalog details the features, benefits and specifications of the company’s broad range of servo system solutions including their complete range of AKD Ethernet-based servo drives, AKM servomotors, direct drive technology, Kollmorgen Cartridge DDR motors, housed DDR motors, linear positioning systems, precision tables, electric cylinders, rodless actuators, TRUE Planetary gearheads, stepper motors, stepper drives, and other product solutions.
Kollmorgen’s AKD servo drives support the functionality of the base analog drive, indexing drive, CANopen® drive and EtherCAT® drive all from a single drive SKU, enabling machine builders to benefit from more efficient bench testing and prototyping, while helping them to smoothly transition from one bus type to another.
Patterned after a typical design cycle, Kollmorgen’s (Radford, VA) Motion Village™ is described as an online Web community designed to provide resources and engineering solutions as a way to increase machine design engineer productivity.
Kollmorgen’s (Radford, VA) Servostar MC multi-axis motion controller family now includes a PCI-card version and a standalone self-contained model. The Servostar MC controls up to 16 axes of coordinated motion via SERCOS drive amplifiers.
Kollmorgen (Radford, VA) is offering a 1-day seminar entitled, "How to improve servo systems." The seminar, held in 6 cities during the second half of September, instructs engineers about the practical side of control theory and how to make machines work better.
Kollmorgen Motion Technologies (Radford, VA) has introduced a new motion control chip designed to simplify the motion controller. The PCD-4500 combines control and translator functions into one 44 QFD package, and operates as a satellite microprocessor to simplify motion design.
