Pre-installing and configuring Kollmorgen AKM servo motors complements the industry leading capabilities of the PC Series actuators, which have been demonstrated to provide four times the travel life of any other actuator of comparable size available today, double the power and load density, 25 percent better thrust force and side load handling, as well as higher speed and longer stroke length. Integrating a servo motor so tightly with PC Series provides users with the following additional benefits:
Optimum motor matching.
All Thomson PC Series linear actuators can be ordered with a broad selection of Kollmorgen AKM servo motors, fully-integrated and tested.
Easier sizing and selection.
Because Thomson has already identified and tested a wide range of configurability options and has provided a tool that helps map applications to motor sizing, it takes less than 15 minutes to find the right combination. Downloadable and configurable 3D CAD models contribute to the solution. All parameters, including length, motor orientation, mounting adapters and screw leads, are fully customisable.
Fast and reliable installation.
Once the actuator/motor combination is selected, the unique Thomson RediMount™ motor mounting system speeds implementation by reducing the time spent aligning the actuator and motor. Should a customer prefer using their own motor make and type, they may still reap the benefits of the RediMount system, giving the ability to seamlessly fit more than 600 different motor alternatives to the PC Series actuators. ISO standard mounting interfaces are also available to facilitate upgrades from pneumatic technologies.
Pre-aligning the system extends life by compensating for system alignment, complementing the maintenance benefits already gained from the PC Series’ IP65 rating and corrosion resistance.
Top quality servo motors
Thomson chose to pre-install Kollmorgen AKM servo motors because of their proven, high-quality motor range, complemented by a broad array of servo drives and programmable positioning controllers for both single- and multi-axis applications. Some of the benefits include:
• Best-in-class performance with industry leading power density
• Exceptionally low cogging and harmonic distortion to ensure smooth performance
• Easy to commission and use with plug-and-play motor recognition and full-frequency auto-tuning on AKD™ Series servo drives
Thomson PC Series linear actuators with an integrated Kollmorgen AKM servo motor option are available in Europe immediately. They can be selected online using tools and diagrams that simplify finding the actuator/motor combination that meets the customers’ application needs. Customers with their own brand of motor can still be benefited by the RediMount system.
