High-Performance in Small Package

Integrated motion and logic control

Today's machine builders are tasked with building more compact but increasingly productive and energy efficient machines. That combination demands more powerful and efficient motion control systems capable of delivering greater throughput and flexibility, with less downtime and within a smaller footprint. Kollmorgen can help.


Kollmorgen's high-performance AKD™ servo drive and AKM™ servomotor combine to deliver maximum torque with minimal energy consumption, in a footprint that is up to 50 percent shorter than competitive servo solutions. And with the ability to provide inertia mismatches of greater than 500:1 from the base motor and drive system, Kollmorgen servo systems deliver extremely efficient and stable operation even in highly dynamic applications.

High Throughput, Zero Maintenance Indexing Solutions

Performance advantage

Nowhere does motion matter more than in high-performance machines - and selecting the optimal solution for a given application requires far more than specifying individual high-performance components.

Kollmorgen recently worked with a packaging machine builder to solve a challenging form, fill and seal application that required rapid and highly reliable indexing. The implemented solution delivers move times of less than 100 ms with a corresponding 50 percent increase in throughput when compared with the previous motion system - all in a package that provides 10 year maintenance-free operation to maximize machine uptime and reduce total cost of ownership.

Learn more about this application - and Kollmorgen's holistic approach to motion system selection that combines co-engineering capabilities with a robust family of best-in-class components to solve even the most demanding application requirements - in our new video, Kollmorgen KBM™ Direct Drive Rotary Motor Indexing Application.
