Main drives for belt-driven and coupled machine tool spindles

06.07.2009
At this year's EMO trade show for machine tools in Milan, Siemens Drive Technologies is presenting for the first time its main drive systems of the 1PH8 motor series for belt-driven and coupled machine tool spindles.
The motors are characterized by their excellent dynamic response, smooth running properties and low vibration levels. They therefore add greater precision to the machine tool spindles, thus helping to increase productivity.

Siemens is showcasing its new 1PH8 range of motors for belt-driven and coupled machine tool spindles at the EMO 2009 machine tool fair. The motors have been designed as main drives and are available as asynchronous and synchronous versions. The 1PH8 motors feature excellent dynamic response, smooth running properties and low vibration levels. This means that machine tool spindles can be operated with greater precision, improving workpiece quality and productivity as well.

Compared to the previous 1PH7, 1PH4, 1PM6 and 1PM4 versions, the power output range has been increased. The motors are available as main drives with power outputs ranging from 2.8 kW to 1,340 kW. Different bearing designs extend the range of possible applications. The motors have been perfectly matched to the Sinamics S120 drive system, simplifying commissioning and enhancing the control response. For applications requiring a high degree of compactness, the synchronous version of 1PH8 motors can also be used.

There are motors available with a solid or hollow shaft, different cooling methods such as water cooling, forced ventilation or, in future, self-cooling , plus absolute-value and incremental encoders. Thanks to the extremely large power range, the high speed range of up to 20,000 r.p.m. and the modular design principle, the motors are suitable as standard drives for conventional machine tool spindles.

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
