AKM Synchronous servo Motors now with only four weeks lead time: Capacity at Kollmorgen Brno works increased by 1/3

Ratingen, 20. June 2011. In spite of considerable growth, Kollmorgen Europe GmbH reduced its lead times for its successful AKM Synchronous servo motors to four weeks. and thus is able to help its customers to realise additional competitive benefits.  Machine builders can deliver faster, and machine users will benefit from shorter service times. In addition, they can quickly improve the performance and energy efficiency of their machines. Shortening the lead time was possible through capacity increase of one third at Kollmorgen’s main European production facility in Brno, Czech Republic.

AKM motors are suitable not only for the development of compact, light machines with improved heat dissipation, durability, availability and performance; but are also a sensible alternative to many  motors used in already existing  applications. Thanks to their extraordinary multiplicity of design options and special design characteristics, a suitable solution can be found quickly and cost-effectively for almost all circumstances, providing positive results for availability, overall performance and energy consumption of the existing machine.

Udo Aull, President of Kollmorgen EU: "It is our objective to minimize the lead times for our AKM motor series continuously so that machine builders can not only achieve competitive advantages by optimally-tailored, highly-efficient solutions, but also by reducing their time to market. OEMs that have obsolete or defective motors from other motor manufacturers can quickly replace them with AKM servo motors thanks to our highly flexible design, quick prototype availability, fast delivery.”
