Whitlam Group Masked Label

Are you in need of the perfect solution for a label with essential information that can withstand a production process?  Our mask label is made from high performance materials that can sustain various chemicals, paint baths, harsh temperatures and environmental conditions. These high performance layers can then be peeled off to remove and uncover your essential information unharmed.

Many companies use labels to identify or track items, sub-assemblies, parts, supplies etc. during their manufacturing processes. Some manufacturing processes include harsh environments. These could be extreme temperatures, chemical baths, painting, powder-coating, electro-coating (e-coat) etc.

Protecting Your Label

One type of label the Whitlam Group offers are known as “Masked” labels. Masked labels have at least two layers. The bottom layer is printed with the information necessary to facilitate the production process. This is often an identifying barcode, 2D Matrix Code, or part number. These numbers or codes can be constant, sequential, or random. The top layer is a clear plastic material through which the printed information on the base layer is visible. If the part goes through a painting or coating process that obscures the label, the top layer (mask) can be peeled away thus exposing the information on the bottom layer of the label. This allows identification of the part during subsequent processing without having the expense or effort of applying a new label. The part maintains its identity.

Masks can also be used as installation aids for applying decorative badging. They provide consistent spacing, proper orientation, and location to reference points.

Some masks can permit application of multi-part labels. Designed appropriately for a process, these masks allow for removal of certain sections of multi-part labels at specific steps of a process and still leave other sections of the multi-part label intact for removal at later steps in the process.

When designing Masked labels, it is important to understand the process parameters the parts and labels will be subjected to during the manufacturing processes and part use. It is important that the materials and the adhesives selected are appropriate so as to perform properly. The mask must stay on the base layer of the label, but not become permanently bonded to the base layer as a result of exposure to processing conditions. It is critical the mask and the base layer be compatible with each other.

The Whitlam Group can work with your process and product experts to determine the right combination of materials to develop a Masked label for your needs.

Subsurface Printing

Array ( [post_title] => Subsurface Printing [post_content] =>

Many labels are used in very challenging environments and need to be durable enough to last the lifetime of the product.

Labels used for automotive and durable applications are two specific markets that require durability and longevity in their labels. These labels may be exposed to extreme heat, cold, moisture, chemicals, abrasion, weather, etc. One of the printing methods used by Whitlam Group to create durable labels is Subsurface printing.

Subsurface printing is when the inks are printed on the underside of a clear plastic film. The images on the printing plates are configured so that when the label is viewed from the top side of the clear film, the image appears as desired. An adhesive layer with a liner backing is applied to the printed inks. Different adhesives are available, as appropriate, for a given label’s use. The web is flipped-over (depending on the type of press) and the face-stock material is then die-cut to the proper size of the label. Because the inks are applied to the bottom side of the plastic film, the film provides protection to the inks, thus creating a durable label.

A 2 mil clear Polyester film is a common material for Subsurface printing. When Subsurface printing, it is important to know the detailed specifications of the materials to ensure that the film is optimized for the Subsurface printing process, the inks, and the environment where the label will be used.

If you would like to know more about subsurface labels or think this might be the right method for your products, contact our experts at 800-75-LABEL.

UL Labels

Array ( [post_title] => UL Labels [post_content] =>

UL LabelMany products are tested and evaluated by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) to determine if they meet safety standards established by regulations, organizations, manufacturers, and UL. The products that pass such testing may be labeled as UL Listed or UL Recognized. The labels affixed to these products, communicating this recognition, must also be UL Recognized.

Whitlam Group is a UL Authorized Label Supplier.  We must pass inspections conducted by a UL auditor. UL auditors may visit the label manufacturing facility at any time, often without prior notice, to inspect or collect UL label samples for ongoing routine surveillance testing.

UL Recognized labels must pass testing as outlined in the ANSI/UL969 Standard. There are several different categories depending on the type of label (PGDQ2, PGJI2, PGIM2, PGGU2, PGIS2, PGGU8, etc.). Type R labels are permanently marked with safety information such as hazards, warnings, cautions, installation instructions and electrical ratings. UL 299 is for dry chemical fire extinguishers. IEC standards include “Durability of Marking Requirements.”

The label testing must be conducted by UL or a UL certified test lab. A lab may be certified under UL’s CTDP (Client Test Data Program) and DAP (Data Acceptance Program). The certified lab’s testing must be equivalent to that of UL’s lab testing. This testing may evaluate weathering, legibility, defacement, chemical exposure, moisture exposure, aging, adhesion, and abrasion. Once approved, the inks and materials used in that specific label construction combination are granted a UL File number.

Note: If a product manufacturer adds additional information to a UL Recognized label such as with Thermal Transfer printing, the ink ribbon or media used must also be UL approved for use with that specific material construction.

Labels may be UL tested to obtain the cUL mark. These tests are similar to the Canadian Safety Association (CSA Group) C22.2 No. 0.15 standards.

Whitlam Group has several different UL approved label construction files for different types of label applications. Working with a UL Authorized Label Supplier such as the Whitlam Group and using our pre-approved UL label constructions can reduce your costs and time by eliminating the need for you to conduct such testing.

UL LabelMany products are tested and evaluated by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) to determine if they meet safety standards established by regulations, organizations, manufacturers, and UL. The products that pass such testing may be labeled as UL Listed or UL Recognized. The labels affixed to these products, communicating this recognition, must also be UL Recognized.

Whitlam Group is a UL Authorized Label Supplier.  We must pass inspections conducted by a UL auditor. UL auditors may visit the label manufacturing facility at any time, often without prior notice, to inspect or collect UL label samples for ongoing routine surveillance testing.

UL Recognized labels must pass testing as outlined in the ANSI/UL969 Standard. There are several different categories depending on the type of label (PGDQ2, PGJI2, PGIM2, PGGU2, PGIS2, PGGU8, etc.). Type R labels are permanently marked with safety information such as hazards, warnings, cautions, installation instructions and electrical ratings. UL 299 is for dry chemical fire extinguishers. IEC standards include “Durability of Marking Requirements.”

The label testing must be conducted by UL or a UL certified test lab. A lab may be certified under UL’s CTDP (Client Test Data Program) and DAP (Data Acceptance Program). The certified lab’s testing must be equivalent to that of UL’s lab testing. This testing may evaluate weathering, legibility, defacement, chemical exposure, moisture exposure, aging, adhesion, and abrasion. Once approved, the inks and materials used in that specific label construction combination are granted a UL File number.

Note: If a product manufacturer adds additional information to a UL Recognized label such as with Thermal Transfer printing, the ink ribbon or media used must also be UL approved for use with that specific material construction.

Labels may be UL tested to obtain the cUL mark. These tests are similar to the Canadian Safety Association (CSA Group) C22.2 No. 0.15 standards.

Whitlam Group has several different UL approved label construction files for different types of label applications. Working with a UL Authorized Label Supplier such as the Whitlam Group and using our pre-approved UL label constructions can reduce your costs and time by eliminating the need for you to conduct such testing.

PLCs address malting process reliability issues

PLCs address malting process reliability issues

A new control system has offered malting company, Crisp, some impressive process improvements.

An upgrade project featuring Mitsubishi Electric's latest PLCs has been completed in record-time, allowing Crisp to make a range of process improvements.

When Crisp decided it was being held back by a legacy control system, it decided to upgrade its control system and turned to Mitsubishi Electric for a solution. The upgrade – which was implemented in jut four days – has slashed downtime and empowered operators to fully govern the manufacturing processes, leading to improved product quality and consistency.

Keeping the delicate malting process balanced requires a responsive control system and timely upgrades to the plant are regarded as essential. Increasing the speed at which process anomalies are detected and responded to has a significant impact on the overall process. With batch sizes measured in tons, this was the main reason why Crisp decided to replace six legacy GEM80 PLCs with new high-performance Mitsubishi Electric Q Series systems.

Exposed to risk
David Spiers, group engineering manager at Crisp explained further: "The existing PLCs were becoming unreliable which left us exposed to the risk of unplanned downtime events. For example if we had a power outage it would take the engineers 3-4 hours to return the system to full operation, which with our production process and fixed delivery schedules to meet really wasn't acceptable."

In addition, it was becoming difficult to find spare parts. This issue was becoming increasingly impactful as the original PLC components were reaching the end of their service life and needed to be replaced. Engineers at the malting production site struggled to interrogate the old control system in order to troubleshoot, repair or modify the existing functions and it was not possible to adjust the processes involved to the extent they wanted.

To address these issues, Crisp contacted Suffolk Automation, a local specialist in process control systems. To source the new PLCs, Suffolk Automation's software engineers turned to Mitsubishi Electric.

Mark Chisnall, managing director at Suffolk Automation, takes up the story: "We're familiar with Mitsubishi Electric's full range of automation components. Technically the PLCs are well supported and for the customer the cost versus performance is good."

Six Q-series PLCs replaced the original PLCs around the factory. Technically this encompassed two plants at Ryburgh malthouse. All the PLCs were then connected via CC-Link IE, open Ethernet network with 1 Gigabit bandwidth, using fibreoptic cables. In this way, Crisp could benefit from real-time communications between the different manufacturing areas and upwards to enterprise level software systems.

"If we experience a power cut now it takes minutes to restart the system, not hours,” said Spiers. “The new PLCs save the live process data into permanent memory, so the system does not lose operating data or any updated parameter settings during a power loss."

The new automation solution also provided Crisp with the level of detail needed to have a greater understanding of real-time variations in the process. The operations team can now monitor and access parameters such as temperature and throughput live, anomalies are quickly detected and acted upon thanks to visible alarms. The wider management team benefits in-turn from better plant performance and more accurate reporting.

Safety laser scanner certified to IEC TS 62998

SICK UK has announced the launch of the outdoorScan3, which is believed to be the first laser scanner to be safety-certified for use outdoors.

The outdoorScan3 Safety Laser Scanner is designed to monitor hazardous areas around machines and industrial vehicles outdoors with a high level of availability.

The SICK outdoorScan3 Safety Laser Scanner answers the need for a high-performance safety scanner certified for outdoor use in industrial automation and intralogistics environments, as well as for integration into autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles. 

The outdoorScan3 can be used in safety applications requiring certification to PLd (EN ISO 13849)/SIL2 (EN 62061) and is additionally a class D device according to IEC TS 62998, the new technical specification governing outdoor use. 

Equipped with SICK’s safeHDDM time-of flight infra-red scanning technology the SICK outdoorScan3 uses intelligent algorithms to filter out the influences of bright sunlight, rain, snow and fog.  With the outdoorScan3 onboard, automated guided vehicles (AGVs) can be certified for travel between indoor and outdoor industrial environments and thereby enable the continuous workflow of materials between production halls or warehouses.  

With a wide scanning angle of 275° and a protective field range of 4m, the outdoorScan3 achieves a total safe scanning area of 38.40m2 with a minimum response time 90 ms.  It can monitor up to 128 individual and freely-definable protective fields, and up to eight fields simultaneously, giving it ability to respond highly dynamically to the changing environment around it.
 
With a ‘non-safe’ warning field range of 40m, the outdoorScan3 also can also output raw measurement data via Ethernet for navigation purposes, so safety and navigation duties can be achieved with a single device, without the need to use a separate scanner for navigation.

Starting a revolution with smart devices

Starting a revolution with smart devices

Mike Loughran discusses the migration path for introducing smart devices to a legacy system to enable IIoT. 

There can be little argument that the era of The Internet of Things (IoT) has arrived. Today. We all own several smart devices – so it comes as no surprise to find that there are now more smart devices in the world than there are people. By the end of 2019, according to Statista, there will be some 26.66 billion connected devices in use. Fast forward three or four years and that number is expected to double again. 

For industry, this rate of change is outpacing the more traditional lifecycle of technology. However, the ‘Things’ of the Industrial IoT are having a big effect on just about every aspect of every sector in industry. 

For industry, the IIoT is revolutionising several key areas, including:
Maintenance – with data enabled improvements in reducing planned and unplanned downtime through predictive and prescriptive maintenance approaches, as well as training and application improvements through Augmented Reality and Digital Twin technologies.
Output/throughput – Data from devices is helping to identify and resolve bottlenecks as well as optimise almost every aspect of production.
Supply chain – Connected devices and systems can drastically improve the supply chain in both directions, allowing more timely raw material delivery, less inventory, and tracking and tracing of output to optimise management further down the supply chain to clients and customers.
Design – with the advances possible through Digital Twin technologies, a fully connected enterprise can have a ‘digital double’ to aid design and product changeovers as well as predict further maintenance and help with training staff.
• Agility and flexibility – connected enterprises that feature some or all of the above functionality can help industry managers to reduce change-over times for different products, implement new lines or processes and reduce the time it takes to bring new products or methods to reality.

Lifecycles
So, what about those lifecycles? Of course, industry managers are not going to discard existing plant and start fresh to reap the benefits promised by IIoT but it is important that every replacement, upgrade or capital investment into an industrial facility is now done as part of an industry 4.0 strategy. There are few companies currently operating in industry who have not started this journey – yet there still remains a number of questions about the potential benefits of such devices, especially when the connectivity of the legacy equipment the new devices must work with is limited. The bad news for companies that do not have an industry 4.0 strategy is that time is running out; remaining competitive with outdated approaches and legacy equipment will become impossible.

The good news is that the benefits of IIoT devices are as numerous as the applications for them. Every industrial facility will be improved by a connected enterprise approach that places a premium on the open transfer of data within the enterprise. Similarly, most devices now available have the capability to be connected, even if the legacy systems and equipment they are being used with is not yet able to make full use of them.

There is no magic bullet. Few companies have the luxury of starting over with a greenfield site that uses cutting edge equipment in a connected way from day one. The migration path for most businesses is a strategy that introduces more and more connectivity over a period of time, often starting with pilot projects around specific processes.

Importantly, beyond the technology and devices themselves, the digital transformation culture is vital to a successful implementation of IIoT. Resolving the issues of legacy equipment, finding what works best for the company and gaining the competitive advantages that come with successful implementation often comes down to the human element. Technology at its best, expands human possibility – so enabling people working in a digital environment is really at the heart of a successful approach. As much as the devices – the ‘Things’ of IIoT have immense potential, it still takes people, relationships and good management to unlock this.

Starting a revolution with smart devices

Mike Loughran discusses the migration path for introducing smart devices to a legacy system to enable IIoT. 

There can be little argument that the era of The Internet of Things (IoT) has arrived. Today. We all own several smart devices – so it comes as no surprise to find that there are now more smart devices in the world than there are people. By the end of 2019, according to Statista, there will be some 26.66 billion connected devices in use. Fast forward three or four years and that number is expected to double again. 

For industry, this rate of change is outpacing the more traditional lifecycle of technology. However, the ‘Things’ of the Industrial IoT are having a big effect on just about every aspect of every sector in industry. 

For industry, the IIoT is revolutionising several key areas, including:
Maintenance – with data enabled improvements in reducing planned and unplanned downtime through predictive and prescriptive maintenance approaches, as well as training and application improvements through Augmented Reality and Digital Twin technologies.
Output/throughput – Data from devices is helping to identify and resolve bottlenecks as well as optimise almost every aspect of production.
Supply chain – Connected devices and systems can drastically improve the supply chain in both directions, allowing more timely raw material delivery, less inventory, and tracking and tracing of output to optimise management further down the supply chain to clients and customers.
Design – with the advances possible through Digital Twin technologies, a fully connected enterprise can have a ‘digital double’ to aid design and product changeovers as well as predict further maintenance and help with training staff.
• Agility and flexibility – connected enterprises that feature some or all of the above functionality can help industry managers to reduce change-over times for different products, implement new lines or processes and reduce the time it takes to bring new products or methods to reality.

Lifecycles
So, what about those lifecycles? Of course, industry managers are not going to discard existing plant and start fresh to reap the benefits promised by IIoT but it is important that every replacement, upgrade or capital investment into an industrial facility is now done as part of an industry 4.0 strategy. There are few companies currently operating in industry who have not started this journey – yet there still remains a number of questions about the potential benefits of such devices, especially when the connectivity of the legacy equipment the new devices must work with is limited. The bad news for companies that do not have an industry 4.0 strategy is that time is running out; remaining competitive with outdated approaches and legacy equipment will become impossible.

The good news is that the benefits of IIoT devices are as numerous as the applications for them. Every industrial facility will be improved by a connected enterprise approach that places a premium on the open transfer of data within the enterprise. Similarly, most devices now available have the capability to be connected, even if the legacy systems and equipment they are being used with is not yet able to make full use of them.

There is no magic bullet. Few companies have the luxury of starting over with a greenfield site that uses cutting edge equipment in a connected way from day one. The migration path for most businesses is a strategy that introduces more and more connectivity over a period of time, often starting with pilot projects around specific processes.

Importantly, beyond the technology and devices themselves, the digital transformation culture is vital to a successful implementation of IIoT. Resolving the issues of legacy equipment, finding what works best for the company and gaining the competitive advantages that come with successful implementation often comes down to the human element. Technology at its best, expands human possibility – so enabling people working in a digital environment is really at the heart of a successful approach. As much as the devices – the ‘Things’ of IIoT have immense potential, it still takes people, relationships and good management to unlock this.

TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory joins research programme to improve meter accuracy for renewable gas

TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory joins research programme to improve meter accuracy for renewable gas

As part of the European Metrology Programme for Innovation and Research (EMPIR), TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory has joined a research consortium which aims to improve the accuracy and durability of commercially available meters for renewable gases.

Operators across the gas supply chain require accurate measurements to bill transactions. However, renewable gases have different physical characteristics from more widely used natural gas, and research is required to determine the impact that these gases have on commercially available flow meters. 

The objective of the project is to provide reliable data to the industry and to make measurement recommendations for renewable gases, including any necessary adaptations to current gas meter standards.
 
TÜV SÜD National Engineering Laboratory will deliver recommendations for the renewable gas conformity requirements of currently available gas meters, against the European Union’s Measuring Instruments Directive (2014/32/EU). While the Directive seeks to harmonise many aspects of legal metrology across member states, it only covers natural gas applications and does not currently include any specifications for renewable gases.

Upgraded HMI family

Array ( [post_title] => Upgraded HMI family [post_content] =>

Upgraded HMI family

IDEC Corporation has upgraded its HG2G-V5 5.7in, HG3G-V8 8.4in, HG3G-VA 10.4in and HG4G-VC 12.1in human-machine interface (HMI) touchscreen models.

New features are said to. include brighter screens, better resolution, larger user memory and faster speeds.
 
For retrofit applications, these the HMIs can be used as direct replacements for previous models, fitting into the exact same panel cutouts. All HMI programming can be converted from existing to these new models, so no new programming is required.
 
All updated models use TFT-LCD screens displaying vivid colours, with the three larger-sized HMIs improving the resolution to 1024x768 pixels.

The entire range of HMIs in the series offers brightnesses ranging from 600 to 800 cd/m2 for improved visibility even in high-glare locations. Backlight life ratings are said to be a minimum of 100,000 hours.
 
Operating temperature range has been extended to cover -20°C to +60°C. Combined with IP66F, IP67F, Type 4X, 12, 13, Class I Division 2 hazardous location and UL 61010 approval ratings makes the units suited to use in tough environments. 
 
In addition to common and previously supported industrial protocols, such as Modbus TCP and Modbus RTU, the new HMIs also support BACnet/IP. Support is included for over 100 other serial and networking industrial protocols including Modbus RTU Master/Slave and Modbus TCP/IP. Up to four protocols can be used simultaneously, allowing these HMIs to exchange data with many sources and systems.
 
File Transfer Protocol (FTP) functionality allows users to configure the HMIs as an FTP Client or Server for transferring programs – and for copying or moving files between local memory, an external memory device or a cloud-based file, database or data storage platform. 
 
A built-in web server can be used to create web pages developed using a browser-based web page editor. This functionality provides remote monitoring and control, and it can be accessed using any device capable of hosting a web browser including a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Accessing the HMI using this method gives a remote user the same functionality as if standing in front of the local screen. Troubleshooting and maintenance of a system is possible any time and from anywhere, saving travel time and expense. 
 
Direct control by the HMIs is enabled by adding IDEC MicroSmart FC6A discrete or analogue I/O expansion modules.

Support is included for over 100 other serial and networking industrial protocols including Modbus RTU Master/Slave and Modbus TCP/IP. Up to four protocols can be used simultaneously, allowing these HMIs to exchange data with many sources and systems.
 
File Transfer Protocol (FTP) functionality allows users to configure the HMIs as an FTP Client or Server for transferring programs – and for copying or moving files between local memory, an external memory device or a cloud-based file, database or data storage platform. 
 
A built-in web server can be used to create web pages developed using a browser-based web page editor. This functionality provides remote monitoring and control, and it can be accessed using any device capable of hosting a web browser including a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Accessing the HMI using this method gives a remote user the same functionality as if standing in front of the local screen. Troubleshooting and maintenance of a system is possible any time and from anywhere, saving travel time and expense. 
 
Direct control by the HMIs is enabled by adding IDEC MicroSmart FC6A discrete or analogue I/O expansion modules.

Success Story from Kollmorgen – Bricks that can put in an appearance

Array ( [post_title] => Success Story from Kollmorgen – Bricks that can put in an appearance [post_content] =>

Motion Control by KOLLMORGEN makes fast and precise cuts from the column of clay

Kollmorgen - Success Story

Neat as a pin, each brick on the pallet is identical to the next. Deviations at the building site are accepted only within tight tolerances. Standardized measurements are already in demand simply because bricklayers these days rarely lay the vertically perforated bricks with mortar but glue them together with thin-bed mortar as piece work. Balancing gaps – error reports. And then every deviation from the norm also costs time – which is why manufacturers such as the Swiss brick manufacturer Landquart AG is continuously improving its established production process. To cut off the endless column of clay into individual bricks, the company has now integrated a servomotor driven module.

It is iron compounds which give clay bricks their typically orange-brown color. The precise color that the building materials ultimately take on depends just as much on the minerals contained within the clay as the firing temperature and the prevailing atmosphere in the oven. There are a number of adjustment screws which the manufacturers of so-called coarse-ceramic products can turn so that the construction industry can deliver perfect bricks. In so doing, it is important to observe that a good brick – with all its claims to automation – still takes time. The most important components of brick are loam, clays and marl.

Cut clean from the endless column

The brick manufacturer Landquart from the place of the same name in the canton of Graubünden extracts the clay from its own clay pit. “Before it is shaped, the ingredients need to be well mixed and, with a view to a homogeneous distribution of moisture, temporarily stored for days. Only then can the paste go into the extruder which compacts the mineral mixture and presses it through its mouthpiece. This creates an endless brick with a fixed length and width. The height is achieved from the speed at which the cutter from the Swiss company Freymatic AG works,” explains Daniel Bärtsch, Plant Manager at the Landquart AG brickworks.

Success StoryCharacteristic for the cut is the combination of the continuous feed of the clay column from the extruder and the discontinuous cutting. To do this, it takes the basic drive arrangement of the flying saw – in essence designed like a thin steel wire which runs from top to bottom through the soft clay columns like a harp string in time with the band speed. The cutter by Freymatic is at the same time cyclically positioned by a Thomson linear axis and synchronized with the band speed. To drive the linear unit with its interior ball screw, TBM Automation AG opts for synchronous servo motors in the AKM series by KOLLMORGEN. TBM and Freymatic have fostered a trusting collaboration for many years in matters of drive technology, motion control and automation. “We need to understand the processes, know how our customers think and then learn about the intricacies from our growing experience,” says Silverster Tribus, Managing Director at TBM. The Swiss engineering specialists from Widnau have on their part been cooperating closely with KOLLMORGEN as a certified partner.

Drive simulation from the workstation

In the past, the vast majority of functions needed to be constantly re-programmed – and a huge amount of code needed to be written for this. “These days, we pull our prepared blocks into a motion project – and that’s it.” In conjunction with graphic programming, the on-site engineers can see considerably better “what impact each of the changing parameters has”. The basis for this unerring and efficient way of working is created by the Kollmorgen Automation Suite – above all in the design of the pipe network contained within.

Pipe Network clearly and precisely replicates the machine architecture including the dependencies between the axes of an application in a very short space of time. The otherwise very complex programming in Pipe Network is replaced by a graphic description with drag-and-drop function. Starting from a virtual master, all functions and relationships between components as well as all movements and settings can be defined with graphic description blocks. If the system is available, the Kollmorgen Automation Suite also offers the opportunity for virtual simulation. Movement profiles, axis conditions or synchronizations can be optimized in real time without the need to connect a single device.

“This is a real advantage because we can test the axes in the office and initiate start up with a prepared, fault-free application,” stresses Danijel Todorovic-Grabher, Senior project manager at TBM Automation. If adjustments need to be made on site, there is a KOLLMORGEN touch panel at the ready right by the system in the brickworks. “We can simply leaf through the drives and don’t need an additional laptop on site.”

Additional overload capacity protects against process fluctuations

The user-dependent access for this in the first step is carried out on the freely programmable controls in the IEC 61131-3 languages. It is part of the functional scope of the KOLLMORGEN Motion Controller PCMM. The compact device takes on the sequential control and the motion control of the connected AKD servo drives with the AKM synchronous servo motors. Motion Control has designed TBM in such a sophisticated way that the machine actually removes the bricks from the column with the beautifully soft motion task profiles. At the Landquart brickworks, the unit is placed directly between the formed part of the extruder and the discharge conveyor. The high overload capacity of the AKM motors up to five times the nominal current ensures that, during operation, the sudden occurrence of speed fluctuations does not lead to a fault in the cutting process. Changed requirements in power are not a rarity in the brick industry; they actually happen on a regular basis. After all, it’s a natural product with a fluctuating consistency that is processed into bricks fully automatically.

Against this background, it is also common practice to regularly optimize the settings of the cutting unit. The water in the clay alone or the detailed changing composition of minerals changes the mechanical shaping of the brick which is still highly sensitive after extrusion. The motion control for taking the cut raw bricks away for drying is configured in a similarly challenging way. Days later, it then goes into the oven for several hours.

For the flow of materials, Freymatic also opts for servo axes by Kollmorgen which are coordinated alongside the multi-axis arrangements of the PCMM. From the viewpoint of motion control, this process is characterized by exactly managed acceleration and braking profiles which transport off and therefore separate the bricks during production. Integrated into the automation is the pallet loader which pushes metal profiles from a magazine under the bricks for their further transportation.

This is what good clay needs

A view into the clay industry shows how existing systems have allowed themselves to become efficiently modernized when machine engineers, system integrators and drive manufacturers work closely together.

“We present data about what quantity needs to be shifted and what times and accuracy are required,” says Marco Breitenmoser, head of construction at Freymatic. “TBM then uses this as a basis to make proposals.” Good clay has for many years relied on the cooperation between Freymatic and TBM discussing jobs together and then also finding the best solution together. “Our expertise lies predominantly in the machine concept and TBM’s is in the drive technology and automation,” says Marco Breitenmoser in summary.

The otherwise very complex programming in Pipe Network is replaced by a graphic description with drag-and-drop function. Starting from a virtual master, all functions and relationships between components as well as all movements and settings can be defined with graphic description blocks. If the system is available, the Kollmorgen Automation Suite also offers the opportunity for virtual simulation. Movement profiles, axis conditions or synchronizations can be optimized in real time without the need to connect a single device.

“This is a real advantage because we can test the axes in the office and initiate start up with a prepared, fault-free application,” stresses Danijel Todorovic-Grabher, Senior project manager at TBM Automation. If adjustments need to be made on site, there is a KOLLMORGEN touch panel at the ready right by the system in the brickworks. “We can simply leaf through the drives and don’t need an additional laptop on site.”

Additional overload capacity protects against process fluctuations

The user-dependent access for this in the first step is carried out on the freely programmable controls in the IEC 61131-3 languages. It is part of the functional scope of the KOLLMORGEN Motion Controller PCMM. The compact device takes on the sequential control and the motion control of the connected AKD servo drives with the AKM synchronous servo motors. Motion Control has designed TBM in such a sophisticated way that the machine actually removes the bricks from the column with the beautifully soft motion task profiles. At the Landquart brickworks, the unit is placed directly between the formed part of the extruder and the discharge conveyor. The high overload capacity of the AKM motors up to five times the nominal current ensures that, during operation, the sudden occurrence of speed fluctuations does not lead to a fault in the cutting process. Changed requirements in power are not a rarity in the brick industry; they actually happen on a regular basis. After all, it’s a natural product with a fluctuating consistency that is processed into bricks fully automatically.

Against this background, it is also common practice to regularly optimize the settings of the cutting unit. The water in the clay alone or the detailed changing composition of minerals changes the mechanical shaping of the brick which is still highly sensitive after extrusion. The motion control for taking the cut raw bricks away for drying is configured in a similarly challenging way. Days later, it then goes into the oven for several hours.

For the flow of materials, Freymatic also opts for servo axes by Kollmorgen which are coordinated alongside the multi-axis arrangements of the PCMM. From the viewpoint of motion control, this process is characterized by exactly managed acceleration and braking profiles which transport off and therefore separate the bricks during production. Integrated into the automation is the pallet loader which pushes metal profiles from a magazine under the bricks for their further transportation.

This is what good clay needs

A view into the clay industry shows how existing systems have allowed themselves to become efficiently modernized when machine engineers, system integrators and drive manufacturers work closely together.

“We present data about what quantity needs to be shifted and what times and accuracy are required,” says Marco Breitenmoser, head of construction at Freymatic. “TBM then uses this as a basis to make proposals.” Good clay has for many years relied on the cooperation between Freymatic and TBM discussing jobs together and then also finding the best solution together. “Our expertise lies predominantly in the machine concept and TBM’s is in the drive technology and automation,” says Marco Breitenmoser in summary.

Motion Control by KOLLMORGEN makes fast and precise cuts from the column of clay

Success Story from Kollmorgen – Bricks that can put in an appearance

Neat as a pin, each brick on the pallet is identical to the next. Deviations at the building site are accepted only within tight tolerances. Standardized measurements are already in demand simply because bricklayers these days rarely lay the vertically perforated bricks with mortar but glue them together with thin-bed mortar as piece work. Balancing gaps – error reports. And then every deviation from the norm also costs time – which is why manufacturers such as the Swiss brick manufacturer Landquart AG is continuously improving its established production process. To cut off the endless column of clay into individual bricks, the company has now integrated a servomotor driven module.

It is iron compounds which give clay bricks their typically orange-brown color. The precise color that the building materials ultimately take on depends just as much on the minerals contained within the clay as the firing temperature and the prevailing atmosphere in the oven. There are a number of adjustment screws which the manufacturers of so-called coarse-ceramic products can turn so that the construction industry can deliver perfect bricks. In so doing, it is important to observe that a good brick – with all its claims to automation – still takes time. The most important components of brick are loam, clays and marl.

Cut clean from the endless column

The brick manufacturer Landquart from the place of the same name in the canton of Graubünden extracts the clay from its own clay pit. “Before it is shaped, the ingredients need to be well mixed and, with a view to a homogeneous distribution of moisture, temporarily stored for days. Only then can the paste go into the extruder which compacts the mineral mixture and presses it through its mouthpiece. This creates an endless brick with a fixed length and width. The height is achieved from the speed at which the cutter from the Swiss company Freymatic AG works,” explains Daniel Bärtsch, Plant Manager at the Landquart AG brickworks.

Success Story from Kollmorgen – Bricks that can put in an appearanceCharacteristic for the cut is the combination of the continuous feed of the clay column from the extruder and the discontinuous cutting. To do this, it takes the basic drive arrangement of the flying saw – in essence designed like a thin steel wire which runs from top to bottom through the soft clay columns like a harp string in time with the band speed. The cutter by Freymatic is at the same time cyclically positioned by a Thomson linear axis and synchronized with the band speed. To drive the linear unit with its interior ball screw, TBM Automation AG opts for synchronous servo motors in the AKM series by KOLLMORGEN. TBM and Freymatic have fostered a trusting collaboration for many years in matters of drive technology, motion control and automation. “We need to understand the processes, know how our customers think and then learn about the intricacies from our growing experience,” says Silverster Tribus, Managing Director at TBM. The Swiss engineering specialists from Widnau have on their part been cooperating closely with KOLLMORGEN as a certified partner.

Drive simulation from the workstation

In the past, the vast majority of functions needed to be constantly re-programmed – and a huge amount of code needed to be written for this. “These days, we pull our prepared blocks into a motion project – and that’s it.” In conjunction with graphic programming, the on-site engineers can see considerably better “what impact each of the changing parameters has”. The basis for this unerring and efficient way of working is created by the Kollmorgen Automation Suite – above all in the design of the pipe network contained within.

Pipe Network clearly and precisely replicates the machine architecture including the dependencies between the axes of an application in a very short space of time. The otherwise very complex programming in Pipe Network is replaced by a graphic description with drag-and-drop function.

Absolute precision meets perfect movement: premo combines precision with motion  – as efficiently as never before

Wittenstein - PremoThe central idea behind the first fully scalable servo-actuator platform from Wittenstein is an uncompromising flexibility from the viewpoint of the user. Motors and gearboxes with application related graduated performance characteristics can be configured modularly to individual motor/gearbox units. The result is a modular system that is significantly more versatile and more individual with regard to performance for the most diverse applications, that meets almost all the challenges of automation, integration and industry specification.

The core of the motor/gearbox unit is a torsionally rigid precision gearbox with low backlash and excellent torque density in conjunction with the equally powerful, permanently excited synchronous servo motor, which guarantees low cogging and a constant speed through the distributed winding.

The Premo actuator generation opens new dimensions in terms of performance with doubled power density and minimal installation space requirements. The Premo boasts increased productivity and optimised energy efficiency thanks to digital, single-cable technology providing more freedom during planning, design and storage as well as lower investment costs.

Typical fields of application:

–  Delta robot (axes 1-3, swivel axis)
–  Handling portal (Z axis, swivel/rotating)
–  Machine tool reaming
–  Tubular bag packaging
–  Folding carton packaging
–  Plastic thermoform (tool axis)
–  Intralogistics (AGV)

Success Story from Kollmorgen – Peening extends life

Array ( [post_title] => Success Story from Kollmorgen – Peening extends life [post_content] =>

Kollmorgen - Success Story - Peening extends lifeFreymatic is building shot peening plants for the construction of aircraft engines – and, to do this, it’s opting for Motion Control by KOLLMORGEN to achieve high quality requirements

Kollmorgen - Success Story - Peening extends life

The shot needs to hit accurately. This is the only way for their power to be optimally deployed. This power does not do any damage. In fact, with each hit it makes the target stronger, more solid and tougher. And this is why accuracy, air speed and the right quantity with the right measurements are so crucial. Freymatic AG from Switzerland builds shot peening systems which extend the life of heavy-duty components including those in aircraft technology. To do this, the process, similar to a blacksmith’s hammer, produces precise compression stress on the surface. Motion Control by Kollmorgen ensures that sufficient shot reaches the target – the single cable connection technology saves valuable installation time.

“When we have a breakdown, we can’t just pull over.” Those in the know describe in one sentence the safety thinking in aviation. Anyone with a broken drive shaft managing to end up relatively unscathed with their vehicle in a field or ditch would have much further to fall if they were in a similar disaster while in the air. In the face of the serious consequences of technical faults in civil aviation, all parts of an aircraft are supplied with an abundance of safety margins. One way to make heavy-duty components even tougher against the prevailing powers is using shot peening. This process is used mainly in the construction of engines.

A chain mail made of tension forces

Using pressure, the drag is able to resist a potent force. Figuratively speaking, components are placed into chain mail. The links in the chain mail consist of compression stress which the shot peen with their kinetic energy during impact with the atomic lattice. Fatigue damages only become clear later on. “Fissures in the material occur where tensile stress is prevalent,” explains Martin Hunziker, CEO of Freymatic. The connection between tensile forces and the formation of fissures is particularly critical in the construction of aircraft since it is here that lightweight construction is required. Despite their size, the blades in an engine need to be very light. This is why they are made of a titanium alloy. The next generation of engines will be even lighter – amongst other things due to the use of titanium-based compounds. But in automotive construction, too, the process is an established manufacturing practice – specifically where fatigue resistance is required.

When it comes to shot peening, manufacturers often use Roxor systems by the Swiss firm Freymatic AG. To do this, the system builders from Domat-Ems in the canton of Graubünden place an industrial robot into a hermetically sealed chamber and fully automatically equip its wrist with up to six different spray nozzles via a mechanical exchange during the machining job. While the robot takes on the motion control along the components being blasted inside the soundproofed chamber, the pressure supply and dosage unit remain outside. The shot quantities can be selected anywhere between 1 and 10, thus achieving control deviations below three percent. This precision is necessary since it is not possible to carry out inline quality monitoring for shot peening – at least not without destroying the tool. The system operator must therefore be able to rely on the adherence to process parameters – which is why, in the field of servomotor driven dosage units, maximum precision and repeat accuracy is required. This range is achieved with a speed-controlled worm gear. The conveying screw is driven by synchronous servomotors from the KOLLMORGEN AKM series which in single cable connection technology are combined with their own AKD servo inverters.

The connection between the servo drive and the servo motor using just one cable is also an advantage for this application since the systems can be wired up more quickly while also saving space. This is because the cable typically used for feedback signals is not required.

Kollmorgen - Success Story - Peening extends life

KOLLMORGEN opts here for a slender hybrid cable for motor and feedback.

What is special about it: The single cable connection technology works even without laborious and expensive multiturn encoders. The specialists in Motion Control and servo drive technology have developed the digital resolver SFD3 for this. The interface translates the analog data of the resolver into one digital signal which it then transfers via one cable to the drives.

Tight tolerances in the dosage

Back to the peening system by Freymatic: In terms of construction, this consists of two pressure containers which act as a sluice between the unpressurized blasting shot store and the dosage which is under high pressure. The dosage powered by the AKM servomotors in the single-cable version represents a core function of the Roxor systems and, when operational, delivers shot quantities of between 0.1 and 12 kilograms per minute with an accuracy of /- 5 percent. In the mixing tube and up to the spray nozzle, the shot is accelerated up to the exit speed. This speed forms the two significant process parameters and is indirectly regulated via the spray pressure in a tight window of tolerance. The pressure thus lies between one and seven bar.

Accompanying the high adjustment range in the drive control designed by TBM Automation is above all the challenge of being both delicate and fast. To do this, the drive axles regulate the speed of the dosing screw via the signals from throughput sensors. “If there is too much material, the speed drops and vice versa,” explains Silvester Tribus, managing director of TBM Automation AG. The company from Widnau, south of Lake Constance, has been working closely with Freymatic for some time already as a system integrator. The specialists in Motion Control and servo drive technology belong to the group of certified system and distribution partners of KOLLMORGEN with highly specialized engineering competence.

Precision from zero speed

To ensure that the adjustment is carried out swiftly and precisely, Urs Tobler, from the TBM management team and specializing in control technology in blasting systems, has equipped the Motion Control with a few special features. “After all, we want the system to start up quickly and need a correspondingly short amount of time until the quantity and pressure have precisely engaged.” Urs Tobler looks back to make a comparison with a time when dosage drives were still driven by DC motors which were hard to regulate, especially with small quantities, and only delivered reliable values in the upper speed range. With an additional linearization of the control performance with analog values, using the KOLLMORGEN AKM motors, it has now been possible to “be precise even from zero speed upwards.” This control quality is said to make the process reliable across the entire adjustment range. This aspect is particularly relevant for shot peening since, after peening, it is not possible to carry out a quality analysis without damaging components.

Shot firing which is too low also results in poor values, following the motto “more is more”. To determine where the optimum value lies, system operators can only do this with “Almen strips”, thus measuring the effect of the shot impact by the distortion of a standardized surface. The Almen values determined by the distortion of a metal measurement strip then provide conclusions as to the effectiveness of the process. This must later precisely and continuously follow the previously determined key values so that the desired effects of the compression stress is set. In a further consequence, this process only functions in conjunction with regular calibration.

Conclusion

The complex processes in the mechanical strengthening of metal components using shot peening shows what a significant role the precise and, above all, repeat accurate servo drive technology plays. The automation conceived by TBM Automation AG for Freymatic AG is also set up in a user-friendly way for the operator and offers a cleanly structured visualization.

Kollmorgen - Success Story - Peening extends lifeFreymatic is building shot peening plants for the construction of aircraft engines – and, to do this, it’s opting for Motion Control by KOLLMORGEN to achieve high quality requirements

Kollmorgen - Success Story - Peening extends life

The shot needs to hit accurately. This is the only way for their power to be optimally deployed. This power does not do any damage. In fact, with each hit it makes the target stronger, more solid and tougher. And this is why accuracy, air speed and the right quantity with the right measurements are so crucial. Freymatic AG from Switzerland builds shot peening systems which extend the life of heavy-duty components including those in aircraft technology. To do this, the process, similar to a blacksmith’s hammer, produces precise compression stress on the surface. Motion Control by Kollmorgen ensures that sufficient shot reaches the target – the single cable connection technology saves valuable installation time.

“When we have a breakdown, we can’t just pull over.” Those in the know describe in one sentence the safety thinking in aviation. Anyone with a broken drive shaft managing to end up relatively unscathed with their vehicle in a field or ditch would have much further to fall if they were in a similar disaster while in the air. In the face of the serious consequences of technical faults in civil aviation, all parts of an aircraft are supplied with an abundance of safety margins. One way to make heavy-duty components even tougher against the prevailing powers is using shot peening. This process is used mainly in the construction of engines.

A chain mail made of tension forces

Using pressure, the drag is able to resist a potent force. Figuratively speaking, components are placed into chain mail. The links in the chain mail consist of compression stress which the shot peen with their kinetic energy during impact with the atomic lattice. Fatigue damages only become clear later on. “Fissures in the material occur where tensile stress is prevalent,” explains Martin Hunziker, CEO of Freymatic. The connection between tensile forces and the formation of fissures is particularly critical in the construction of aircraft since it is here that lightweight construction is required. Despite their size, the blades in an engine need to be very light. This is why they are made of a titanium alloy. The next generation of engines will be even lighter – amongst other things due to the use of titanium-based compounds. But in automotive construction, too, the process is an established manufacturing practice – specifically where fatigue resistance is required.

When it comes to shot peening, manufacturers often use Roxor systems by the Swiss firm Freymatic AG. To do this, the system builders from Domat-Ems in the canton of Graubünden place an industrial robot into a hermetically sealed chamber and fully automatically equip its wrist with up to six different spray nozzles via a mechanical exchange during the machining job. While the robot takes on the motion control along the components being blasted inside the soundproofed chamber, the pressure supply and dosage unit remain outside. The shot quantities can be selected anywhere between 1 and 10, thus achieving control deviations below three percent. This precision is necessary since it is not possible to carry out inline quality monitoring for shot peening – at least not without destroying the tool. The system operator must therefore be able to rely on the adherence to process parameters – which is why, in the field of servomotor driven dosage units, maximum precision and repeat accuracy is required. This range is achieved with a speed-controlled worm gear. The conveying screw is driven by synchronous servomotors from the KOLLMORGEN AKM series which in single cable connection technology are combined with their own AKD servo inverters.

Success Story from Kollmorgen – Peening extends lifeFreymatic is building shot peening plants for the construction of aircraft engines – and, to do this, it’s opting for Motion Control by KOLLMORGEN to achieve high quality requirements

Success Story from Kollmorgen – Peening extends life

The shot needs to hit accurately. This is the only way for their power to be optimally deployed. This power does not do any damage. In fact, with each hit it makes the target stronger, more solid and tougher. And this is why accuracy, air speed and the right quantity with the right measurements are so crucial. Freymatic AG from Switzerland builds shot peening systems which extend the life of heavy-duty components including those in aircraft technology. To do this, the process, similar to a blacksmith’s hammer, produces precise compression stress on the surface. Motion Control by Kollmorgen ensures that sufficient shot reaches the target – the single cable connection technology saves valuable installation time.

“When we have a breakdown, we can’t just pull over.” Those in the know describe in one sentence the safety thinking in aviation. Anyone with a broken drive shaft managing to end up relatively unscathed with their vehicle in a field or ditch would have much further to fall if they were in a similar disaster while in the air. In the face of the serious consequences of technical faults in civil aviation, all parts of an aircraft are supplied with an abundance of safety margins. One way to make heavy-duty components even tougher against the prevailing powers is using shot peening. This process is used mainly in the construction of engines.

A chain mail made of tension forces

Using pressure, the drag is able to resist a potent force. Figuratively speaking, components are placed into chain mail. The links in the chain mail consist of compression stress which the shot peen with their kinetic energy during impact with the atomic lattice. Fatigue damages only become clear later on. “Fissures in the material occur where tensile stress is prevalent,” explains Martin Hunziker, CEO of Freymatic. The connection between tensile forces and the formation of fissures is particularly critical in the construction of aircraft since it is here that lightweight construction is required. Despite their size, the blades in an engine need to be very light. This is why they are made of a titanium alloy. The next generation of engines will be even lighter – amongst other things due to the use of titanium-based compounds. But in automotive construction, too, the process is an established manufacturing practice – specifically where fatigue resistance is required.

When it comes to shot peening, manufacturers often use Roxor systems by the Swiss firm Freymatic AG. To do this, the system builders from Domat-Ems in the canton of Graubünden place an industrial robot into a hermetically sealed chamber and fully automatically equip its wrist with up to six different spray nozzles via a mechanical exchange during the machining job. While the robot takes on the motion control along the components being blasted inside the soundproofed chamber, the pressure supply and dosage unit remain outside. The shot quantities can be selected anywhere between 1 and 10, thus achieving control deviations below three percent. This precision is necessary since it is not possible to carry out inline quality monitoring for shot peening – at least not without destroying the tool. The system operator must therefore be able to rely on the adherence to process parameters – which is why, in the field of servomotor driven dosage units, maximum precision and repeat accuracy is required. This range is achieved with a speed-controlled worm gear. The conveying screw is driven by synchronous servomotors from the KOLLMORGEN AKM series which in single cable connection technology are combined with their own AKD servo inverters.

The connection between the servo drive and the servo motor using just one cable is also an advantage for this application since the systems can be wired up more quickly while also saving space. This is because the cable typically used for feedback signals is not required.

Success Story from Kollmorgen – Peening extends life

KOLLMORGEN opts here for a slender hybrid cable for motor and feedback.

What is special about it: The single cable connection technology works even without laborious and expensive multiturn encoders. The specialists in Motion Control and servo drive technology have developed the digital resolver SFD3 for this. The interface translates the analog data of the resolver into one digital signal which it then transfers via one cable to the drives.

Tight tolerances in the dosage

Back to the peening system by Freymatic: In terms of construction, this consists of two pressure containers which act as a sluice between the unpressurized blasting shot store and the dosage which is under high pressure. The dosage powered by the AKM servomotors in the single-cable version represents a core function of the Roxor systems and, when operational, delivers shot quantities of between 0.1 and 12 kilograms per minute with an accuracy of /- 5 percent. In the mixing tube and up to the spray nozzle, the shot is accelerated up to the exit speed. This speed forms the two significant process parameters and is indirectly regulated via the spray pressure in a tight window of tolerance. The pressure thus lies between one and seven bar.

Accompanying the high adjustment range in the drive control designed by TBM Automation is above all the challenge of being both delicate and fast. To do this, the drive axles regulate the speed of the dosing screw via the signals from throughput sensors. “If there is too much material, the speed drops and vice versa,” explains Silvester Tribus, managing director of TBM Automation AG. The company from Widnau, south of Lake Constance, has been working closely with Freymatic for some time already as a system integrator. The specialists in Motion Control and servo drive technology belong to the group of certified system and distribution partners of KOLLMORGEN with highly specialized engineering competence.

Precision from zero speed

To ensure that the adjustment is carried out swiftly and precisely, Urs Tobler, from the TBM management team and specializing in control technology in blasting systems, has equipped the Motion Control with a few special features. “After all, we want the system to start up quickly and need a correspondingly short amount of time until the quantity and pressure have precisely engaged.” Urs Tobler looks back to make a comparison with a time when dosage drives were still driven by DC motors which were hard to regulate, especially with small quantities, and only delivered reliable values in the upper speed range. With an additional linearization of the control performance with analog values, using the KOLLMORGEN AKM motors, it has now been possible to “be precise even from zero speed upwards.” This control quality is said to make the process reliable across the entire adjustment range. This aspect is particularly relevant for shot peening since, after peening, it is not possible to carry out a quality analysis without damaging components.

Shot firing which is too low also results in poor values, following the motto “more is more”. To determine where the optimum value lies, system operators can only do this with “Almen strips”, thus measuring the effect of the shot impact by the distortion of a standardized surface. The Almen values determined by the distortion of a metal measurement strip then provide conclusions as to the effectiveness of the process. This must later precisely and continuously follow the previously determined key values so that the desired effects of the compression stress is set. In a further consequence, this process only functions in conjunction with regular calibration.

Conclusion

The complex processes in the mechanical strengthening of metal components using shot peening shows what a significant role the precise and, above all, repeat accurate servo drive technology plays. The automation conceived by TBM Automation AG for Freymatic AG is also set up in a user-friendly way for the operator and offers a cleanly structured visualization.

The MC6N supports up to 64 axes of motion with 64 bit integer position registers for ultra precise axis resolution.

EtherCAT slave drives and I/O can be connected and run in cyclic synchronous position, speed or torque modes provided these are supported by the drive.

EtherCAT

The P960 has 2 built-in EtherCAT axes which can be user upgraded with the purchase of P912 Remote Axis FECs.

Each P912 doubles the available axes, i.e:
P960 1 x P912 = 4 Remote Axes
P960 2 x P912 = 8 Remote Axes
P960 3 x P912 = 16 Remote Axes
P960 4 x P912 = 32 Remote Axes
P960 5 x P912 = 64 Remote Axes

The MC6N can be purchased with axes factory pre loaded ie:
P960 = 2 Axes
P961 = 4 Axes
P962 = 8 Axes
P963 = 16 Axes
P964 = 32 Axes
P965 = 64 Axes

Every axis can be programmed to move using linear, circular or helical or spherical interpolation, electronic cams, linked axes and gearboxes. The power of the controller allows for multiple robotic transformations to run simultaneously.

Easy to use

A bright easy to read backlit display enables the controller status to be easily determined, whilst the single piece metal cast backplate provides an integrated earth chassis to improve noise rejection in the industrial environment.

The MC6N supports up to 64 axes of motion with 64 bit integer position registers for ultra precise axis resolution.

EtherCAT slave drives and I/O can be connected and run in cyclic synchronous position, speed or torque modes provided these are supported by the drive.

EtherCAT

The P960 has 2 built-in EtherCAT axes which can be user upgraded with the purchase of P912 Remote Axis FECs.

Each P912 doubles the available axes, i.e:
P960 1 x P912 = 4 Remote Axes
P960 2 x P912 = 8 Remote Axes
P960 3 x P912 = 16 Remote Axes
P960 4 x P912 = 32 Remote Axes
P960 5 x P912 = 64 Remote Axes

The MC6N can be purchased with axes factory pre loaded ie:
P960 = 2 Axes
P961 = 4 Axes
P962 = 8 Axes
P963 = 16 Axes
P964 = 32 Axes
P965 = 64 Axes

Every axis can be programmed to move using linear, circular or helical or spherical interpolation, electronic cams, linked axes and gearboxes. The power of the controller allows for multiple robotic transformations to run simultaneously.

Easy to use

A bright easy to read backlit display enables the controller status to be easily determined, whilst the single piece metal cast backplate provides an integrated earth chassis to improve noise rejection in the industrial environment.

Familiar Tools

The built-in Ethernet port allows programming and connection of common PLC and HMI protocols, including the Trio Uniplay range of HMIs, directly to the MC6N. User programs can be written in Trio’s established multi-tasking TrioBASIC language using the powerful Motion Perfect v4 application development software making complex motion easy. The industry standard IEC 61131-3 languages are available as an option, allowing a fully functional PLC programming system.

KBM frameless kit brushless motors

Array ( [post_title] => KBM frameless kit brushless motors [post_content] =>

What is direct drive technology?
With direct drive technology a torque motor is coupled directly to the driven load. This provides a very stiff mechanical connection to the load, eliminating problems associated with couplings, belts and gearboxes.

Kollmorgen KBM
KBM™ Series frameless kit brushless motors are designed to be embedded in your machine. The rotor is supported by machine’s own bearings.
A large selection of standard motors are available or alternatively a bespoke solution incorporating your specific modifications can quickly and cost-effectively create a an exact fit motor which will provide the highest performance and longest life in the most compact space.
Designs, which include special winding configurations, tailored mounting features, diameter and stack length dimensional adjustments, or material variations, are all possible.

Simplified Machine Design.
With a Kollmorgen KBM Solution from Micromech, your machine design is simplified. Noisy mechanical transmissions are eliminated as are the performance limitations associated them.

The direct coupling of a torque motor to a load provides improvements to a machine, unachievable with a more compliant mechanical transmission. Furthermore, expensive maintenance is greatly reduced as the need to adjust belts or pulleys or to lubricate gearboxes is eliminated.

Direct drive frameless vs Conventional Motor Systems
Conventional servo systems with mechanical transmissions limit servo performance and reliability. Typically designs consume more space due to use of transmissions, belt / pulley arrangements and couplings. Additionally maintenance is more extensive. This all adds unnecessary machine down time and costs.

What is direct drive technology?
With direct drive technology a torque motor is coupled directly to the driven load. This provides a very stiff mechanical connection to the load, eliminating problems associated with couplings, belts and gearboxes.

Kollmorgen KBM
KBM™ Series frameless kit brushless motors are designed to be embedded in your machine. The rotor is supported by machine’s own bearings.
A large selection of standard motors are available or alternatively a bespoke solution incorporating your specific modifications can quickly and cost-effectively create a an exact fit motor which will provide the highest performance and longest life in the most compact space.
Designs, which include special winding configurations, tailored mounting features, diameter and stack length dimensional adjustments, or material variations, are all possible.

Simplified Machine Design.
With a Kollmorgen KBM Solution from Micromech, your machine design is simplified. Noisy mechanical transmissions are eliminated as are the performance limitations associated them.

The direct coupling of a torque motor to a load provides improvements to a machine, unachievable with a more compliant mechanical transmission. Furthermore, expensive maintenance is greatly reduced as the need to adjust belts or pulleys or to lubricate gearboxes is eliminated.

Direct drive frameless vs Conventional Motor Systems
Conventional servo systems with mechanical transmissions limit servo performance and reliability. Typically designs consume more space due to use of transmissions, belt / pulley arrangements and couplings. Additionally maintenance is more extensive. This all adds unnecessary machine down time and costs.
