New High Inertia Servomotors

27.08.2009
Siemens Drive Technologies is supplementing its 1FK7 range of servomotors with a new High Inertia version. The higher intrinsic inertia makes the control response of the 1FK7-HI motor extremely robust, so that it is particularly suitable for use in applications involving high and variable load inertia.

At this year's EMO machine tool fair in Milan, Siemens Drive Technologies is showcasing its new High Inertia version of the 1FK7 servomotor for the first time. The motors are used on the feed axes and auxiliary axes of machine tools.


Siemens Drive Technologies is supplementing its 1FK7 range of servomotors with a new High Inertia version. The higher intrinsic inertia makes the control response of the 1FK7-HI motor extremely robust, so that it is particularly suitable for use in applications involving high and variable
load inertia.

The new 1FK7-HI High Inertia servomotor is characterized by its higher intrinsic moment of inertia. This makes the control response of the motors extremely robust and therefore especially suitable for applications with high and variable load inertia. Drive systems featuring the Sinumerik machine tool control system and motors from the 1FK7 series achieve very high contour precision without the need for time-consuming adaptation of the controller to the machine.

The self-cooled 1FK7-HI servomotors have been designed to be extremely resistant to vibrations and shocks and are available with torques of 3 Nm to 20 Nm. Like all motors of this design, they have an electronic nameplate and the version with the DRIVE-CLIQ serial drive bus is perfectly matched to the Sinamics S120 drive system. The SIZER tool is used for adapting and dimensioning the motors to match the respective application.

Im Focus: Flexible proximity sensor creates smart surfaces

Fraunhofer IPA has developed a proximity sensor made from silicone and carbon nanotubes (CNT) which detects objects and determines their position. The materials and printing process used mean that the sensor is extremely flexible, economical and can be used for large surfaces. Industry and research partners can use and further develop this innovation straight away.

At first glance, the proximity sensor appears to be nothing special: a thin, elastic layer of silicone onto which black square surfaces are printed, but these...

Im Focus: Manipulating Electron Spins Without Loss of Information

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.

For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...

Im Focus: The proton precisely weighted

What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.

To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
