Siemens expands motor portfolio for machine tools


EMO 2015, Hall 3, Booth E06/F03

  • Dynamic motor for large machine tools
  • Geared motor for auxiliary units such as pallet changers and chip conveyors
  • High-torque spindle motors for heavy machinery
  • Flexible segment motor for rotary tables and spindles

Siemens is unveiling numerous electric motors for use in machine tools. Covering a wide range of applications and offering outstanding torque, the new developments include the Simotics S-1FT7 compact synchronous servomotor with shaft height 132 as well as the Simotics S-1FG1 servo geared motor, which is available in a variety of models. Other innovations being presented are the powerful Simotics M-1FE2 built-in motor in size 180 and high-torque segment motors for use in large rotary tables and spindles.

Despite its compact size, the naturally cooled Simotics S1FT7 servomotor with shaft height 132 features a higher torque and consumes less power than previous models. The servomotor provides 90 to 170 newton meters (Nm) of torque depending on its length, making it especially suitable for large machine tools. With its new Simotics S-1FG1 servo geared motors, Siemens is expanding its motor portfolio for machine tools. The four types of gears and different gear ratios enable users to select the ideal configuration to meet their needs. Due to its superior energy efficiency and flexible torque ratio, the servo geared motor is especially suitable for use with auxiliary units such as pallet changers, chip conveyors, and feeder units.

The Simotics M-1FE2 built-in motor in size 180 has been designed for machining larger workpieces. The use of permanent magnets allows the spindle motor to achieve a particularly high torque density. With its high performance and internal diameter of 200 millimeters, the Simotics M-1FE2 is also suitable for use in large turning and milling centers as well as for sophisticated machining processes. Siemens also offers Simotics T-1FW68 high-performance segment motors. With a high torque of up to 1 million Nm, these direct drives can handle large to very large diameters. The segment motors allow for flexible configuration and can also be operated with a smaller number of stator segments.

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...

Im Focus: New Products - Highlights of COMPAMED 2016

COMPAMED has become the leading international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade fair, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.

In 2016, the joint pavilion by the IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, will be located in Hall 8a again and will...

Im Focus: Ultra-thin ferroelectric material for next-generation electronics

'Ferroelectric' materials can switch between different states of electrical polarization in response to an external electric field. This flexibility means they show promise for many applications, for example in electronic devices and computer memory. Current ferroelectric materials are highly valued for their thermal and chemical stability and rapid electro-mechanical responses, but creating a material that is scalable down to the tiny sizes needed for technologies like silicon-based semiconductors (Si-based CMOS) has proven challenging.

Now, Hiroshi Funakubo and co-workers at the Tokyo Institute of Technology, in collaboration with researchers across Japan, have conducted experiments to...
