AKM2G: It can do even more now

Automation partners were delighted about the new KOLLMORGEN servo motors

“Smaller with greater performance. That is a very good combination, allowing us to equip machines better and more flexibly.” These were the comments often heard at the Kollmorgen European partner event. During the two-day event at the European head office in Ratingen, the specialist in servo drive technology and motion control demonstrated the opportunities the second servo motor generation AKM2G offers, particularly in the field of machine performance. No partners from Europe or India bypassed the opportunity to gain expertise directly from the manufacturer. Everyone benefits from this close and cooperative interchange – the end customers in particular.

This time the partner event was under the heading of “Together we can achieve more”. As a result, there was plenty of opportunity for discussions with other partners and Kollmorgen experts. Above all, they shared in-depth technical knowledge of the current automation solutions and future innovations. The second generation of the type AKM2G synchronous servo motor for example delivers up to 30 percent higher power density with its optimized stator winding technology.

Kollmorgen has succeeded in making a noticeable reduction in winding losses which is a further improvement to the already very good current speed-to-torque ratio of the existing AKM servo motors. Another plus point of the new servo motor generation: The smoother cogging behavior noticeably increases the control accuracy. “Our second generation AKM2G offers our partners greater performance with the same construction volume,” says Jan Treede, host and Managing Director of Kollmorgen Europe.


Since the company was founded in 1916, the innovative drive solutions from Kollmorgen have helped turn great ideas into reality, made the world that bit safer, and improved people's quality of life. Kollmorgen supports the continuous development of pioneering solutions that cannot be beaten in terms of performance, reliability, or user-friendliness. Key to this are first-class expertise in drive systems and components, industry-leading quality, and comprehensive specialist knowledge of how to connect and integrate standard and bespoke products. This gives engineering firms worldwide an important competitive advantage and reassures their customers that they can rely at all times on the finished application. – Further information: | [email protected].
