Make it Simpler
To meet the demands of today’s marketplace, your packaging lines need to deliver greater throughput and quality, without processing errors or equipment failures that cause unplanned downtime. Kollmorgen understands that less human interaction equals less error. That’s why we have developed reliable motion components that simplify your machine design, as well as innovative motion control solutions that are easy to operate and can be programmed from one central location.
Kollmorgen Automation Suite™ dramatically shortens development time for complex, multi-axis motion while increasing machine throughput by 25 percent or more. Choose standard IEC 61131 programming, or use Kollmorgen’s exclusive Pipe Network™ to quickly create a drag-and-drop representation of your machine and automatically generate error-free code. Either way, Kollmorgen Automation Suite™ makes it simple to create PLC and motion programs, cam profiles, device setups, I/O specifications, HMI interactions and more – all through a fully integrated graphical interface.
Simplify things even more by eliminating excess hardware from your machine. For example, our AKD PDMM® drive incorporates Kollmorgen Automation Suite™ master control for up to seven additional AKD™ axes, with no need for a separate controller. Our Cartridge DDR® servo motor mounts directly to the machine with a few bolts, eliminating the need for gears, belts and other maintenance-intensive, backlash-prone transmission components. And our microstepping technology lets you use cost-effective stepper motors and drives in applications that might otherwise require a full servo motor, drive and feedback system. A simpler machine is more adaptable, easier to change over, easier to maintain and repair, and lets you do more with less: Less development time, less cost, less room for error.
