AC Servo Motor + Drive Systems from Kollmorgen

Kollmorgen offers various electronic motor drives with advanced control technology, multiple fieldbus connectivity options, and control interfaces. Choose from a broad selection of servo drives in a wide range of input voltages and output power levels.

Kollmorgen drive technology is enhanced when used with both our motor designs and automation controllers. Configuration and programming software is integrated with drive and motor combinations. Kollmorgen drives are also versatile and can run a broad range of standard and specialty motors with various feedback types. Kollmorgen drives adapt to changing technology and many integrate directly with safety solutions to meet new machine safety directives.

KOLLMORGEN AKD SERVO DRIVES AND AKM SERVO MOTORS

Kollmorgen servo drives are used for dynamic motion applications where precise positioning, speed control, or torque efficiency is key. Kollmorgen servo drives range from 300 watts to 50,000 watts of continuous duty power output. Peak outputs Kollmorgen servo drives are impressive with peak operation at 3 times the rated continuous current for a full 5 seconds in certain drives. This is a clear Kollmorgen advantage since many manufacturers can only rate peak operation at 1 second or less. This allows many applications to use significantly smaller servo drives and expands the dynamic performance of the servo drive lineup.

Connectivity is a key aspect in machines so fieldbus options are plentiful. Kollmorgen support many popular ethernet fieldbuses like EtherCAT, Ethernet /IP, Profinet, and SynqNet. Support for traditional fieldbuses is available on certain models as well, including Profibus, Devicenet, CanOpen, RS485, RS232, Sercos II and Sercos III.

Kollmorgen’s family of permanent magnet brushless motors offer an extremely wide variety of size and package types. From frameless pancake motors to high acceleration housed/shafted motors, Kollmorgen offers the most complete range of high performance motors available today. When you combine our vast selection of motors with our family of high performance servo drives, we can satisfy your most demanding application requirements and help you build a better machine, faster.

To assist with the sizing and selection of Kollmorgen’s AC Servo Motor + Drive Systems, Kollmorgen announce the release of MOTIONEERING® Application Engine 6.4.0 – Kollmorgen’s Free premier motion sizing and selection software. This release features the new KBM™ Series Frameless Kit brushless motors with our AKD™ servo drive family, complementing their existing rotary and linear actuation systems. Sizing frameless motors and drive systems has never been easier. Using a mechanism project concept for collecting and saving multiple axes of load information,MOTIONEERING® can automatically calculate application results and compare against a database catalog of systems – recommending to their customers the most optimized set of Kollmorgen system solutions available.

Kollmorgen Motioneering software

The MOTIONEERING® software sizing engine has the flexibility to sum the effects of multiple axes of motion for power supply and shunt regeneration sizing (rotary applications only). Versatile units-of-measure selection options for mechanism and motion profile data-entry, with the ability to convert data into other available units, makes this a convenient international tool. A user-friendly Help file teaches program functions and algorithms used to provide results.

Quick Connect Gearheads for Any Servo or Stepper Motor

The new Harmonic Drive® Quick Connect Gearhead website features the following:

Harmonic Planetary gears have simultaneous meshing between the sun gear and planet gears and between the planet gears and the internal gear. The sun gear is connected to the motor and a carrier, supporting the planet gears, is connected to the output. Single stage planetary gears can achieve reduction ratios up to 10:1. Ratios above 10:1 utilize a two stage design where the carrier of the first stage drives the sun gear of the second planetary stage.

Harmonic Drive® gearing utilizes a unique operating principle which is based upon the elastic mechanics of metals. The greatest benefits are the zero-backlash characteristics and the weight and space savings compared to other gears because our gear mechanism consists of only three basic parts. They are the: Wave Generator, Flexspline and Circular Spline.
