At this year's EMO machine tool fair in Milan, Siemens Drive Technologies is showcasing its new High Inertia version of the 1FK7 servomotor for the first time. The motors are used on the feed axes and auxiliary axes of machine tools.
Siemens Drive Technologies is supplementing its 1FK7 range of servomotors with a new High Inertia version. The higher intrinsic inertia makes the control response of the 1FK7-HI motor extremely robust, so that it is particularly suitable for use in applications involving high and variable
The new 1FK7-HI High Inertia servomotor is characterized by its higher intrinsic moment of inertia. This makes the control response of the motors extremely robust and therefore especially suitable for applications with high and variable load inertia. Drive systems featuring the Sinumerik machine tool control system and motors from the 1FK7 series achieve very high contour precision without the need for time-consuming adaptation of the controller to the machine.
The self-cooled 1FK7-HI servomotors have been designed to be extremely resistant to vibrations and shocks and are available with torques of 3 Nm to 20 Nm. Like all motors of this design, they have an electronic nameplate and the version with the DRIVE-CLIQ serial drive bus is perfectly matched to the Sinamics S120 drive system. The SIZER tool is used for adapting and dimensioning the motors to match the respective application.

There are currently great hopes for solid-state batteries. They contain no liquid parts that could leak or catch fire. For this reason, they do not require cooling and are considered to be much safer, more reliable, and longer lasting than traditional lithium-ion batteries. Jülich scientists have now introduced a new concept that allows currents up to ten times greater during charging and discharging than previously described in the literature. The improvement was achieved by a “clever” choice of materials with a focus on consistently good compatibility. All components were made from phosphate compounds, which are well matched both chemically and mechanically.
The low current is considered one of the biggest hurdles in the development of solid-state batteries. It is the reason why the batteries take a relatively long...
