improved EC 22 motors are equipped with preloaded ball bearings and latest-generation
Neodymium permanent magnets. They feature low vibration and low noise levels
even at high speeds. With their nominal torque of up to 44 mNm, an efficiency
of more than 90 percent and a 25 percent reduced speed/torque gradient, these
are truly performance-optimized drives.
All motors are available with Hall sensors or sensorless and
with up to four different windings. They can be combined with a variety of
standard gearheads and the sterilizable planetary gearhead in a wide range of
variations, as well as a servo amplifiers and positioning controllers.
New versions of BASF's Ecovio line are both compostable and designed for either injection molding or thermoforming. These combinations are becoming more common for the single-use bioplastics used in food service and food packaging applications, but are still not widely available.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
