Three in one servo cuts machine costs
Parker Hannifin has launched what it believes to be the world's first servo drive in a 50mm housing to combine three servo power stages in a single, compact unit. Called the TPD-M, the new compact drive has been developed for all applications where multiple drives are normally used and gives both OEMs and end users the opportunity to reduce build, configuration and operating costs, while boosting productivity and profitability.
The new TPD-M servo drive is particularly suitable for all centralised automation systems, such as those found in many packaging machines, where large numbers of drives are often required. By replacing up to three individual drives with a single TPD-M unit it is therefore possible to save weight and space in control cabinets and to cut component costs, as only one set of drive parts, cables, connectors, filters and braking resistors are required. Additionally, system complexity can be minimised, thereby improving safety and reducing maintenance requirements, while programming time can be reduced as only one drive unit needs to be configured. TPD-M servo drives can be supplied as one, two or three axis versions.
