Effectively implement servo technology to meet performance requirements

Machine builders are continually faced with challenges in areas of technology complexity and knowledge barriers related to the scope of work to be performed, whether it involves a new design, re-design or conversion implementation. By utilizing the latest servo system technology with a simplified axis design approach and identifying the action items for a number of typical mechanical configurations, they can effectively manage design risk and achieve optimal machine performance while reducing development time.

Kollmorgen's direct drive cartridge motor technology utilizes a machine’s bearings to support the rotor of a full-frame motor for the ease of installation, and can often eliminate the need for a mechanical advantaged mechanism (gearheads, pulleys and belts, etc). Learn more about Kollmorgen's Cartridge DDR and how a simplified approach improves performance in Hurley Gill's white paper, "A Simplified Machine Design Approach for Optimal Servo Motor Control"


The time is quickly approaching for PACK EXPO 2014. Kollmorgen is going to make PACK EXPO one of the most exciting shows you've ever attended. We have new product solutions and new demos- presented in a fun way and showing that we know what is required on the packaging floor and across the industry.

AIOE’s Total Cost of Ownership Solutions Group is developing a framework that will encourage and engage OEMs and food and beverage processors in a meaningful discussion of what is considered in total operational costs.

The attendees will learn how to ask the best questions to make the right equipment choice and about TOC considerations including major costs associated with:

  • acquisition
  • operations
  • refurbishment
  • disposal
