Kollmorgen Will Present Next-Generation Hygienic Machine Design, New Products, and Wash-Down Demos at IPPE 2018

AKM2G GroupRADFORD, VA – December 14, 2017 – Kollmorgen will feature newly launched products, live demos, and the latest research on hygienic machine design at Booth C1105 at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), January 30 – February 1, 2018, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

Throughout the show, Kollmorgen will demonstrate its AKMH™ Hygienic Servo Motor. Recognized for exceptional reliability, the AKMH is designed to withstand the most rigorous washdown environments for higher overall equipment effectiveness (OEE). Lower total cost of ownership (TCO) is achieved through reduced cleaning time and increased uptime; the risk of food recall is significantly reduced by the motor’s superior hygienic design.

Kollmorgen will also introduce the new AKM®2G synchronous servo motor, the next generation of its industry-leading AKM® motor product family. The higher-torque density of the AKM2G allows OEMs to substantially increase machine performance without increasing motor size. With average continuous torque increases of 30%, space dedicated to motors and mechanical components can be significantly reduced.

Attendees are invited to experience Kollmorgen’s wash-down tank demo, a first at IPPE. The demo incorporates the new AKM2G, AKD®-N de-centralized drive, AKMH hygienic servo motor and AquaTrue® hygienic gearboxes to show how the components work together to create a total hygienic solution that increases reliability while reducing cleaning time and the risk of food recall.

“We have many exciting things to share at IPPE this year. We’ll be talking about the AKMH’s unrivaled reliability and the advantages it offers OEMs,” said Bill Sutton, Market Development Manager at Kollmorgen. “We’re also excited about the AKM2G, the newest member of our AKM motor family. The improved torque density allows OEMs to use a smaller motor to reduce the machine footprint without sacrificing performance. And AKM2G deployed into existing OEM designs will enable increased throughput and additional product capacity.”

In addition to learning about new products and hygienic design solutions, IPPE attendees are invited to visit booth C1105 to discuss their specific application needs with a Kollmorgen expert. Advance meetings can be scheduled by contacting Bill Sutton at [email protected].
