Kollmorgen expands AKM2G motor portfolio to cover the low voltage range

Ratingen (Germany)
 
Following the successful launch of the second generation AKM2G servo motors, Kollmorgen - the specialist in servo drive technology and motion control - is now expanding its new range for applications in the low voltage range. The company is responding to increased demand for AKM2G motors for AGVs, robotics, and medical technology. Powerful compact motors for supply voltages of 24, 48, 72 and 96 V DC are increasingly in demand here.
 
Initially, Kollmorgen will launch the AKM2G motors for low voltage applications in frame size 3. The company is relying on optical encoders, Hiperface DSL, EnDat as well as the tried-and-tested robust Resolver as feedback systems. In terms of connection technology, the options available currently include M23 connections in the SpeedTec version and hybrid Htec. Further options are due to follow as part of the market launch.
 
In terms of drive behaviour, the AKM2G servo motors deliver a permanent torque between 0.6 and 9 Nm for low voltages with peak torques up to 27 Nm. This means that the new motors achieve the best values for compact mobile applications from the material flow. A look at logistics shows how widespread the autonomous transportation systems known as AGVs are today. High power density as well as economical use of electrical energy are essential features of the second generation of AKM motors from Kollmorgen. These features have been transferred 1:1 to the new low voltage series. This opens up new possibilities for mechanical engineering in the design of small robots, autonomous transportation systems, and automated medical technology. Kollmorgen also continues to rely on customizing as a factor in its success. The new range is easy to configure for individual tasks and also provides additional scope for non-standard customer-specific options.
