Segway Winner - Pack Expo 2014RADFORD, VA - April 16, 2015 - Kollmorgen  announces that Mark Rogenski is the winner of the company's Segway ®  i2 SE Personal Transporter  (PT) giveaway at PACK EXPO 2014. The Segway i2 SE PT is powered by a Kollmorgen electric motor  that delivers 40% more torque per unit of volume than comparably-sized motors. It is a self-balancing, electric-powered transportation device designed for efficiency and maneuverability over a variety of terrain - from inside the warehouse to more challenging outdoor environments. Sleek and versatile, the Segway i2 SE PT is built with an anodized, height-adjustable LeanSteer™ frame and includes a wireless InfoKey™. 

"It was exciting to exhibit our innovative motion technology in the context of processing and packaging machines at PACK EXPO 2014," said Bill Sutton, Market Development Manager, Kollmorgen. "Motion enables machines to do amazing things. It was fun to give away a Segway PT knowing that it's driven by Kollmorgen motion technology.

"I've used Kollmorgen components before, and knew they manufactured quality motors and drives. I also knew of Kollmorgen servo motors , but I was surprised to learn the Segway PT utilized them." said Mark Rogenski, Senior Electrical Engineer, IES Systems. Rogenski received his new Segway i2 SE recently and was looking forward to cruising around his neighborhood.

Kollmorgen's standard technology platforms are ideal for a wide variety of high-performance applications because they are easily customized to meet the specific needs of customers, and the Segway i2 SE PT was no exception. The Kollmorgen electric motor utilized by Segway PT products has features that are unique to brushless servo motor technology, and some not seen on motors of any type. 

A unique sensor design provides precision feedback to the motor's drive electronics without the need for a traditional encoder or resolver; and a patented hemispherically-wound stator features redundant windings - effectively providing two completely functioning motors in one shell. A benefit of this winding technology is the motor's substantially-reduced size.

The motor's construction also uses a proprietary injection-molding process to mold key components of the motor and encapsulate the windings in one step. This process simplifies manufacturing and brings the added benefits of higher quality and improved motor performance.
