The accepted principle of matching motor to load inertia is no longer pertinent with today’s faster processors and advanced control algorithms.
Machine tool capabilities depend on more precision at higher speeds with motion tuned to their exacting application requirements. To achieve the greatest possible precision and repeatability for shaping, grinding, drilling or other applications, shaping machines need to eliminate backlash and chatter while ensuring safety and design compliance.
Kollmorgen understands these challenges. For over 100 years, Kollmorgen’s motors, drives and controls have provided machine tool builders with innovative solutions with the optimum motion design, integration and performance for each individual machine. From milling and routing to boring and turning, if a machine tool requires precision motion control, Kollmorgen has a solution.
