For precise, linear motions in environments with demanding hygiene requirements, we have now combined our AKMH stainless steel servo motors with stainless steel actuators into installation-ready drive systems in protection type IP69K. These solutions are mainly tailored for lifting applications or format adjustments in the packaging, food, and pharmaceutical industries.
Ever more mobile electronic devices are firing up the consumption of batteries and rechargeable batteries - according to GfK from 116 million in 2008 to 300 million in 2012 in Germany alone. In light of these figures from the German consumer research association, productivity is crucial for cost-efficient production. During a redesign of the system, Schleuter mechanical engineers managed to increase the output of an existing battery labeling machine in China from 600 to 1000 units per minute. This increase was possible thanks to an automation including Motion Control that was integrated into the Kollmorgen drive control system.
