The new Allen-Bradley Kinetix 3 component servo
drive from Rockwell Automation provides machine builders the ability to better
match the needs of manufacturers without the complexity of traditional servo
solutions. Offered in models as small as 50W, the drive provides the
flexibility to tailor axes to a machine's actual power requirement, which will
minimize system size and cost. Its compact design makes the drive ideal for
machines that require less than 1.5 kW and up to 12.55 N-m of instantaneous
torque, such as intermittent form/fill/seal machines, indexing tables, medical
devices, laboratory automation equipment and semiconductor processing.
