Swiss company MEquadrat builds test systems with decentralized servo technology from Kollmorgen, and the servo motors from the Kollmorgen AKM series also travel along on the rotary indexing table, as Martin Zimmermann explains
Materials with optoelectronic functions are an indispensable part of electrical components today.
Users need to know the material’s precise internal molecular structure before the components are installed so that these then work reliably in the application.
Kollmorgen says it has updated its developer network, added more functions and made it easier to use on mobile and desktop computer.
“It’s so much easier when you work as a team,” say the company in a statement. “This is why Kollmorgen has thoroughly revised and expanded the web-based customer community KDN – Kollmorgen Developer Network.”
A Dutch packaging machinery manufacturer has now developed a labeller as part of a retrofit with servo-drive technology based on 48 volts.
This is designed as an optional module for the company’s own vertical packaging machines on the one hand and as a functional enhancement for retrofitting older machines of well-known producers on the other.
Scaled technology and functioning interfaces are essential for Swiss Can Machinery, which is why the company’s filling and packaging systems have a modular design throughout, and why it uses a product program with a scaled structure for the drive technology.
The filling and packaging systems at Swiss Can Machinery – which was established by brothers Marc and Michael Grabher – shows how this objective can be achieved.
