Siemens expands motor portfolio for machine tools

06.10.2015

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: LaserTAB: More efficient and precise contacts thanks to human-robot collaboration

At the productronica trade fair in Munich this November, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be presenting Laser-Based Tape-Automated Bonding, LaserTAB for short. The experts from Aachen will be demonstrating how new battery cells and power electronics can be micro-welded more efficiently and precisely than ever before thanks to new optics and robot support.

Fraunhofer ILT from Aachen relies on a clever combination of robotics and a laser scanner with new optics as well as process monitoring, which it has developed...

Im Focus: The pyrenoid is a carbon-fixing liquid droplet

Plants and algae use the enzyme Rubisco to fix carbon dioxide, removing it from the atmosphere and converting it into biomass. Algae have figured out a way to increase the efficiency of carbon fixation. They gather most of their Rubisco into a ball-shaped microcompartment called the pyrenoid, which they flood with a high local concentration of carbon dioxide. A team of scientists at Princeton University, the Carnegie Institution for Science, Stanford University and the Max Plank Institute of Biochemistry have unravelled the mysteries of how the pyrenoid is assembled. These insights can help to engineer crops that remove more carbon dioxide from the atmosphere while producing more food.

Im Focus: Highly precise wiring in the Cerebral Cortex

Our brains house extremely complex neuronal circuits, whose detailed structures are still largely unknown. This is especially true for the so-called cerebral cortex of mammals, where among other things vision, thoughts or spatial orientation are being computed. Here the rules by which nerve cells are connected to each other are only partly understood. A team of scientists around Moritz Helmstaedter at the Frankfiurt Max Planck Institute for Brain Research and Helene Schmidt (Humboldt University in Berlin) have now discovered a surprisingly precise nerve cell connectivity pattern in the part of the cerebral cortex that is responsible for orienting the individual animal or human in space.

The researchers report online in Nature (Schmidt et al., 2017. Axonal synapse sorting in medial entorhinal cortex, DOI: 10.1038/nature24005) that synapses in...

Im Focus: Ultrafast snapshots of relaxing electrons in solids

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!

When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
