Flexible servo drive system for demanding applications

SPS IPC Drives 2015, Hall 11

  • New Simotics S-1FG1 servo geared motor with finely graduated transmission ratios
  • Sinamics S120 converter with a wide range of technology functions and modified motor modules
  • Optimal interaction of components simplifies

Siemens has expanded its extensive drive portfolio for servo applications to include the Simotics S-1FG1 servo geared motor that is optimally harmonized with the Sinamics S120 converter system. The complete integration of this drive system into Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) makes configuration and commissioning easy. Prefabricated Motion Connect signal and power cables offer an easy and reliable method of connecting the components. The components have electronic rating plates, and the motors are connected via the Drive-Cliq system interface so that the system can be brought into operation quickly. This servo drive system from Siemens is suitable for use in a multitude of applications, such as printing and packaging machines, storage and retrieval machines , conveyor systems and dosing pumps.

The highlights of the compact Simotics S-1FG1 servo geared motor are its high efficiency and low torsional backlash for precise, dynamic motion sequences. The Simotics S-1FG1 is available in the following versions: helical, parallel shaft, bevel and helical worm gearboxes – and with up to 25 transmission ratios, depending on the type of gear and size. The helical gearing of the gear wheels makes the gearboxes run very quietly, thereby reducing the generation of noise. The small diameter of the plug-on pinion inserted into the motor shaft enables the first gear stage to have a high transmission ratio. This in turn means that in some cases a two-stage gearbox can be used instead of a three-stage one.

On account of its highly integrated functionality and scalable number of axes, the Sinamics S120 converter system is suitable for use in a multitude of demanding Motion Control applications. The high-performance single and coordinated multi-axis drives with vector or servo control enable tailor-made solutions to be implemented that increase productivity and flexibility. The converter is available in four different versions: blocksize, booksize, chassis and cabinet units. The power units or motor modules in booksize format have been redesigned in the three to 30 ampere range. Power units with a treble overload capability and the integration of the motor connection system into the motor module save a considerable amount of space in respect of height and width in the control cabinet. The newly developed connection method makes for fast, easy and reliable assembly and wiring. The optimized shielding design and improved thermal separation between power semiconductor and electronics also ensure greater ruggedness.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
