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: New interactive machine learning tool makes car designs more aerodynamic

Scientists develop first tool to use machine learning methods to compute flow around interactively designable 3D objects. Tool will be presented at this year’s prestigious SIGGRAPH conference.

When engineers or designers want to test the aerodynamic properties of the newly designed shape of a car, airplane, or other object, they would normally model...

Im Focus: Robots as 'pump attendants': TU Graz develops robot-controlled rapid charging system for e-vehicles

Researchers from TU Graz and their industry partners have unveiled a world first: the prototype of a robot-controlled, high-speed combined charging system (CCS) for electric vehicles that enables series charging of cars in various parking positions.

Global demand for electric vehicles is forecast to rise sharply: by 2025, the number of new vehicle registrations is expected to reach 25 million per year....

Im Focus: The “TRiC” to folding actin

Proteins must be folded correctly to fulfill their molecular functions in cells. Molecular assistants called chaperones help proteins exploit their inbuilt folding potential and reach the correct three-dimensional structure. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute of Biochemistry (MPIB) have demonstrated that actin, the most abundant protein in higher developed cells, does not have the inbuilt potential to fold and instead requires special assistance to fold into its active state. The chaperone TRiC uses a previously undescribed mechanism to perform actin folding. The study was recently published in the journal Cell.

Actin is the most abundant protein in highly developed cells and has diverse functions in processes like cell stabilization, cell division and muscle...

Im Focus: Lining up surprising behaviors of superconductor with one of the world's strongest magnets

Scientists have discovered that the electrical resistance of a copper-oxide compound depends on the magnetic field in a very unusual way -- a finding that could help direct the search for materials that can perfectly conduct electricity at room temperatur

What happens when really powerful magnets--capable of producing magnetic fields nearly two million times stronger than Earth's--are applied to materials that...

Im Focus: World record: Fastest 3-D tomographic images at BESSY II

The quality of materials often depends on the manufacturing process. In casting and welding, for example, the rate at which melts solidify and the resulting microstructure of the alloy is important. With metallic foams as well, it depends on exactly how the foaming process takes place. To understand these processes fully requires fast sensing capability. The fastest 3D tomographic images to date have now been achieved at the BESSY II X-ray source operated by the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin.

Dr. Francisco Garcia-Moreno and his team have designed a turntable that rotates ultra-stably about its axis at a constant rotational speed. This really depends...
