Siemens Industry Inc. introduces
its new 1PH8 family of high-performance induction motor drives and servomotors.
Available in a wide power range, from 2.8 kW up to 1340 kW, these new motors provide
dynamic response, smoother operation and lower vibration levels.
This new line combines induction and
high-powered servo technologies to give machine designers and end-users a
greater degree of efficiency and more precision in the production process. A single stator and rotor design enables the
modular adaptation of the many motor options to provide design flexibility and
Designed for the specific performance and
environmental requirements of a main spindle on a CNC-equipped machine tool,
these new Siemens induction motors have myriad applications in other heavy-duty
markets, such as print unit drives on printing presses; rolls and web handling
on converting and packaging machinery; crane and hoist elevation; extruders and
injection molding machines; metal-forming and welding machinery; assembly line
robotic articulation; materials handling gantries
modular motor platform concept offers designers various options for selecting
the optimum unit for an application:
- Assorted bearing designs for increased
cantilever forces or increased speeds up to 20,000 rpm.
- Shaft designs in a solid or hollow
configuration to match the mechanical interface.
- Forced-air or water-cooled models for
choosing the better method to suit the job.
- Induction or synchronous servomotor
design for mating the right motor to the size requirements and dynamic
response needs; both styles feature the same mechanical and electrical interface
to simplify engineering.
- Absolute or incremental encoders
built-in for high-resolution feedback and enhanced motion control in high power
1PH8 motor spindle line is fully compatible with the Siemens SinamicsÂ®
S120 drives platform to achieve faster commissioning and improved control
response. All motors in this new family feature the Drive-CliqÂ®
serial interface and electronic nameplate recognition for plug-n-play
families of Siemens motor designs can be upgraded to the new 1PH8 series without
difficulty, including the 1PH7, 1PL6, 1PH4, 1PM4, 1PM6 and the upper range of
