Going into Hiperdrive

Going into Hiperdrive The Hiperdrive (Highly Integrated Performance Drive) from Sick is claimed to provide precision, repeatability and a high level of operating reliability in positioning applications, resulting in fewer rejects and greater product and process quality. The integrated positioning drive comprises a motor, gearbox, absolute measurement system and control electronics. It allows rapid automatic changeovers in printing, packaging and metal-processing machines, giving users more flexibility, reduced changeover times, higher productivity and reduced operating costs. These capabilities come in a compact housing, allowing simple integration into new and existing machines. With different versions offering operating speeds up to 280rev/min and driving torques up to 20Nm, there is a variant available to meet the performance requirements of most applications. Absolute detection of the angle of rotation provides a clear absolute positional value for every axis requiring positioning, eliminating the need to perform a reference run on machine start-up. Integration into existing plant networks can be via a Profibus-DP or DeviceNet clip-on module.
