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: Making lightweight construction suitable for series production

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.

Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...

Im Focus: Wonder material? Novel nanotube structure strengthens thin films for flexible electronics

Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.

"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...

Im Focus: Deep inside Galaxy M87

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.

Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...

Im Focus: A Quantum Low Pass for Photons

Physicists in Garching observe novel quantum effect that limits the number of emitted photons.

The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...

Im Focus: Microprocessors based on a layer of just three atoms

Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.

Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
