Mid performance, high torque per pound servomotor has wide usage range

Mid performance, high torque per pound servomotor has wide usage range Motion control engineering and integration company Inmoco has introduced a range of servomotors with an optimal balance of performance and competitive pricing. The Kollmorgen VLM covers the torque range 0.5 Nm to 16 Nm (peak) and incorporates the features most often needed by users, providing a motion solution that is suitable for a wide range of applications with mid-performance requirements (various  kinds of handling, transport applications, low performance cut-to-length applications, rotary knife, machine tool change etc.)

These motors are based on carefully selected components that were both developed and are produced in Radford, Virginia USA. They include flying leads to eliminate the cost of sourcing cables separately, and are suitable for use with many competitively priced feedback devices.

The VLM motors complement Inmoco's other servomotor offerings, such as the high-performance Kollmorgen AKM servomotor to complete a price/performance offering from which users can select an optimal solution. Performance is between AKM and stepper, asynchronous motors.

With 12 standard windings, VLM servomotors are offered in most popular motor sizes and have options for both NEMA and Metric mounting. There is a choice of shaft configurations plus further user-selectable options, allowing a motor to be specified for easy integration into the host machines and systems.

Rated speed is up to 6000 rpm operating at 160/320 VDC or 120/240 VAC, and the VLM servomotors deliver up to 4.53Nm continuous torque (16Nm peak). Frame size options are NEMA 23 and 34 (60mm and 90mm). Protection is to IP40, the VLM is RoHS compliant, CE and UL approved (with cUL pending). The alternatives for feedback include SFD, resolver, 2048 ppr comcoder and Hall sensors.
