My Notes

About Kollmorgen Corporation

Kollmorgen has a rich history of enabling innovators through motion in the packaging equipment market. Since our founding in 1916, we have provided innovating solutions in technology to increase throughput, OEE, and profitability for machine builders around the world.

Our unique focus on understanding customer value and providing co-engineering provides our customers with the best solutions to optimize and differentiate machines.

Our most recent innovations include the development of the AKMH™ hygienic wash-down servo motor, the most hygienic servo on the market today!  AKMH servos reduce the risk of a food recall, increase reliability in wash-down applications and decrease cleaning time. The unique hygienic design conforms to the 3A, EHEDG, NSF, BISSC, FDA, and USDA requirements. Features include a unique vented cable to equalize pressure from the inside of the motor to the outer housing. Other features include corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel outer surface, 32micron surface finish, elimination of harborage points such as external hardware and metal to metal seams, IP69K rating to withstand 1450 psi spray and motor and cabling approved for use in sanitation processes using chemicals from 2-12 pH. Our AKD®-N decentralized drive will be displayed at the show. The AKD-N can reduce cabling expense and complication as well as reduce the control cabinet size on machines.

We will also be displaying the second generation of our industry-leading AKM servo motor. The new design allows for up to 35% more torque in the same motor volume allowing for smaller more compact machines.

Our full line of motion control products including Kollmorgen Automation Suite™ (KAS) which provides full machine control and excellent tools to optimize motion performance, AKD® digital servo drives, stepper motors, direct drive rotary servo motors, frameless motor sets, linear motors, and linear actuators will be presented.

Come see our servo boxing robots and have some fun while learning about the latest in motion technology for the packaging industry.

Sustainable Solution Description
Our AKM® servomotor is rated for energy class IE4, and is more energy efficient than asynchronous options because of its high power density, small moment of inertia, and low cogging value. Savings of 40% or more may be achieved by replacing an asynchronous motor with highly efficient servo technology consisting of asynchronous servomotor and servo drive.
