Kollmorgen Introduces the New Stainless Steel AKMH Servomotors at PACK EXPO 2013

Visit booth 3118 to learn how Kollmorgen's motion technology and new AKMH with its robust hygienic design can maximize machine productivity, and ensure food-safety compliance

RADFORD, VA - Kollmorgen will be introducing their new line of robust stainless steel AKMH servomotors based on the acclaimed AKM® series in booth 3118 at Pack Expo 2013 in Las Vegas on September 23-25, 2013. Designed specifically to address the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), these IP69K rated synchronous servomotors feature a hygienic housing designed to meet EHEDG, NSF, BISSC and 3A machinery guidelines. The AKMH Servomotor is constructed with materials to provide long-life and trouble-free operation, even with daily exposure to chemicals and high pressure washdowns. The AKMH requires no additional protection and can be sanitized without covering it or removing it from the machine. Kollmorgen's Pack Expo washdown IP69K demo tank will feature the new AKMH stainless steel servomotors- running real-time in a simulated environment of moving water. With the new AKMH, OEMs can design and build more reliable and productive machines that are easier and faster to clean, thus minimizing unscheduled downtime for end users.


Again this year, Kollmorgen plans to treat Pack Expo visitors with a little fun while they get hands-on product knowledge. Kollmorgen has a new Servo Boxing Robots interactive demo that will showcase our next-generation AKD® PDMM programmable servo drive which provides higher throughput and greater machine precision. Kollmorgen will also feature a large scale Servo Tennis video game where participants can rally for the highest score while learning about AKM servomotors, AKD servo drives and the R2A linear actuators. The VT BOLT electric motorcycle and the Segway® PT-both containing Kollmorgen technology as an integral part of their functionality-will be on display at the booth. Kollmorgen demos promise to show processing and packaging machine capabilities and entertain at the same time.

OEMs and End users are invited to visit Kollmorgen in booth 3118 to discuss application needs and learn more about how Kollmorgen can help them achieve desired results. Pack Expo visitors can also schedule a meeting with a Kollmorgen expert by sending an e-mail with the desired meeting day and time to packaging@kollmorgen.com.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
