Servo drive

DR100EE25A20NAC digital servo drive features a 20 kHz digital current loop with higher current loop bandwidth, due to Space Vector Modulation (SVM) switching techniques. Suitable for use with linear motors, servo drive is capable of operating with or without Hall sensors for encoder based sinusoidal commutation of linear servomotors. Digital and analog inputs and outputs, as well as drive protection and error detection, are fully programmable.

Clutch/brakes

Enclosed UniModule Clutch/Brake Washdown Series (EUM-W) are corrosion-resistant and completely sealed for use in high-pressure sprayers and caustic materials applications, as in the chemical and food and beverage industries. Made for design flexibility, EUM-W features static torque from 16 lb-ft to 95 lb-ft; three voltages of 6, 24, and 90V; and five frame sizes of NEMA 50 to 215. Series is suitable for machinery with an electric motor requiring a controlled stop.

Lathe control

MANUALplus 4110 is intended for highly automated lathes, such as cycle-controlled lathes with two slides (X and Z axis), one spindle, a driven tool, and a C axis or positioning spindle. An integrated digital servo drive control has a hard disk with NC program capacity and an Ethernet interface to exchange data with other information systems. The control program supports G-code and interactive lathe operation.

Roller screws

SKF(R) planetary roller screws product line include Type SRC (cylindrical nut with axial play), Types TRU/PRU (preloaded cylindrical nut), Type SRF (flanged nut with axial play), and Types TRK/PRK (preloaded flanged nut). Threaded rollers with a planetary timing mechanism are designed for use in high speed applications, such as machine tools or automated handling equipment. Intended to ease hydraulic to electro-mechanical actuation conversions, the roller screws are reportedly shock-resistant and have a long life and high load-carrying ability.
