Complete drive solutions, including for the growing demand for collaborative robots and automated guided vehicles will be the theme of Kollmorgan at this years SPS in Nuremberg. The AKM2G-series servo motors are expanded for applications in the low-voltage sector. They will also show the second-generation functional safety technology in the AKD2G series servo inverters.
“Fast Forward to the Future” is the trade fair motto of the company during SPS (Hall 3, stand 250). For the second generation of servo motors, the control arm is at full throttle. The high power density with greater torque per engine size opens up new ways to construct machinery as a smaller overall size is often sufficient to handle the AKM2G. Above all, compact applications with a high functional density benifit most from this feature, for example, in the design of collaborative robot kinematics and automated guided vehicles (AGV).
The new safety functions within the second generation of drive control systems also have what it takes to make factory automation smarter. Under the heading of Safe Motion, the new AKD2G series servo drives are available with a range of solutions that make it possible to simply integrate even complex safety functions using intelligent engineering. Secure encoders, connection with just one cable, and the loss of additional I/O modules open up more free space and buy time in the installation. They will be demonstrating how such solutions could look in reality with real exhibits in action.
