Servo motor range gains extra torque and flexibility

04 April 2014

Parker Hannifin has added to its compact SMB series brushless servo motor range. The SMB170 not only extends the torque capability of the series to 60Nm, but is also said to offer flexibility to OEMs for projects in food processing, packaging, material forming and handling machinery, due to its extensive range of motor frame configurations and options.

The servo motor utilises ‘Salient Pole’ technology, featuring neodymium-iron-boron magnets encapsulated to the motor shaft. The motors can achieve high acceleration and can withstand high overloads without the risk of demagnetisation or detachment of the magnets. Additionally, the dimensions of the motor are reduced. Compared to traditional-technology brushless servo motors, the specific torque is around 30% higher and rotor inertias are low, making it especially suited to use in highly dynamic applications.
