ABB launches into the servo market

ABB launches into the servo market ABB has designed a new drive which it claims is the most adaptable in the market, allowing control of synchronous or asynchronous motors, either open loop or closed loop. With the new drive, machinery builders only need to specify one drive for a variety of motor types along with an appropriate feedback device, depending on the application. The new ABB machinery drive, rated from 0.75 to 45 kW, uses standard AC drive technology but with significant performance improvements that are set to take ABB into the servo performance arena. It is targeted at machinery builders and will open up new applications for ABB such as smaller processing line drives for rubber and plastic machines. "While ABB is a well established supplier of main drives to rubber and plastic machines, the new machinery drive gives us access to the many smaller precision drive applications found in this industry," says Steve Ruddell, general manager drives and motors.
