The extreme high precision of laser, the speed and efficiency of plasma, the cold-cutting versatility of waterjet: all of these cutting technologies depend on motion performance designed and tuned to the specific task. Customers for cutting machines are looking for machines that cut more precisely, at higher speeds, with motion tuned to their exacting application requirements. Kollmorgen understands these challenges. And we help solve them with the optimum motion design, integration and performance for each individual machine.
More Ambitious Cutting Machine Design
Progress begins with performance. Our high-performance servo motors include direct drive rotary and linear, housed and frameless, explosionproof, washdown, food-grade and other options to provide superior motion performance for every cutting technology, application and operating environment. Our next-generation 2G motion system offers perfectly matched drives and motors with greater power and torque density to deliver the performance you need at a significantly smaller size. This motion system recently launched gantry functionality, enabling machine builders to achieve that next level of motion performance by tightly synchronizing two axes at the firmware level. This magnitude is typically faster compared to fieldbus update rates.
We’ll help you solve any cutting challenge.
More Capable Integration, Customization and Performance
Kollmorgen offers the highest quality products for every need. Through our co-engineering and co-development capabilities, we can customize products as needed and help you design lighter, more efficient machines using fewer and smaller parts. Because we understand material forming equipment, our products integrate seamlessly with Hypertherm and other industry-standard controllers as well as custom controllers. For minimal downtime and operator safety, we offer drives with advanced SafeMotion options built-in. It’s all about achieving the ideal system for any cutting application. Plus our motors, drives and cables are designed to work together, ensuring maximum performance.
More Confident Engineering and Delivery
Kollmorgen is more than a supplier. We’re a partner, dedicated to your success. We give you direct engineer-to-engineer access to the designers who create our motion systems, and who understand how to address specialized material forming requirements. Our self-guided design tools help you model, choose and optimize products online. And with our global footprint of manufacturing, design, application and service centers, you always have access to dependable supply, co-engineering expertise, and personalized support that no other partner can provide.
Top Products for Tool-Less Cutting
Resources for Best Performance
Plasma, laser and waterjet cutting machines all have one thing in common: customers are looking for next-generation performance. When manufacturers purchase a new or upgraded machine, they’re focused on the capabilities that will allow faster, more reliable production of higher-quality products. That means your reputation and success as a machine builder depend on demonstrating the best performance, the best design and the best integration.
The accepted principle of matching motor to load inertia is no longer pertinent with today’s faster processors and advanced control algorithms.
With access to higher-resolution feedback devices, faster processors, sharper vision systems, and more sophisticated communication buses, your competitors can offer innovative, value-added features with each new machine generation. Staying ahead of this competition can be particularly challenging for lean engineering teams with limited resources.
