Drive specialist Wittenstein - based in Germany's Tauberfranken region - is at HANNOVER MESSE 2017 to present a version of its brushless servo motors from the "cyber dynamic line" that features an integrated spindle drive.9 Apr 2017
By integrating the screw drive into the actuator housing, the new brushless servo motors in the cyber dynamic line are the first products of their type to combine servo motor, spindle drive, linear bearing and encoder system in one self-contained and ready-to-install unit. "This is a unique feature in such compact servo motors," says Carolin Ank, product manager at Wittenstein cyber motor. "Until now, it's been practically impossible to find appropriate solutions in this size on the market. Companies have either had to use pneumatic cylinders that need extensive maintenance and cannot be controlled with any flexibility, or solutions have had an open spindle and therefore been unsuitable for industrial use."
The mini servo motors are maintenance-free thanks to their lubricating system, which lasts throughout their service life, and are a key addition to Wittenstein's portfolio of rotary servo motors and servo actuators in the cyber dynamic line product range. Among other things, they are ideal for highly dynamic machine positioning axes and for joining, bending, gripping and metering applications in forming and handling technology, the semiconductor industry, assembly automation and packaging machinery. The completely stainless steel version with IP65 protection can also be used for filling plants and other systems in the food and beverage industries.
