Leveraging over 70 years of product innovation, Kollmorgen pioneered the development of direct drive technology. Today, our Direct Drive Rotary (DDR) motors bring you industry-leading performance, zero maintenance, clean mechanical assembly, improved accuracy, higher throughput, better reliability, and smooth, quiet operation to suit a wide variety of machine design needs.
KBM series frameless direct drives are supplied in kit form as a separate rotor and stator package for direct integration into the customers' machine. With considerable space saving capability, the modular torque motor range is particularly suited to co-engineered modifications for highest performance positioning control in the most compact space.More about KBM™ Direct Drive >>
The exclusive Cartridge DDR direct drive servo motor features an integrated, factory-aligned high resolution feedback device in a unique bearing-less one component design that couples directly to the load, using the machine’s own bearings to support the rotor. This torque motor provides up to 50 percent more torque density than comparably sized conventional servo motors and with quick and convenient installation is especially suited to applications in printing and packaging machinery.More about Cartridge DDR® >>
