Kollmorgen came to PACK EXPO International ready to demo its new motion technology, the new AKD2G servo drive and AKM2G servomotor system solution—hygienic motor solutions for packaging applications and state-of-the-art robotics.
According to Kollmorgen, the dual-axis AKD2G (pictured) is one of the most power-dense industrial servo drives on the market. It substantially reduces mains wiring, fuses and filtering to save panel space and cost. Highlights include plug-and-play compatibility to Kollmorgen motors and Workbench interface, as well as an optimized hybrid connector. Speed is another highlight, according to Kollmorgen, which claims its multicore Compute Engine, Servo on a Chip is more powerful than other servo drives. The AKD2G’s current loop update rate of 1.28 microseconds accommodates changing load conditions immediately. Kollmorgen also noted the drive's market-leading velocity and position loops updates, which register at 62.5 microseconds and 125 microseconds respectively..
