Reducing Defects while Improving ROI in Metal Stamping with Direct-Drive Technology

Date:

Organizations: Kollmorgen

Reducing vibration in the stamping process is the principal benefit when selecting a direct-drive motor, but there are other complementary advantages compared to a traditional rotary servo motor: reliability, size, power, speed and ROI.

Eliminating the gears, pulleys, seals, bearings and other components means that there are fewer parts to maintain and repair. Directly coupling to the load also improves positional, speed and dynamic accuracy. There is no hysteresis, backlash or lost motion in any direction. Any tuning or maintenance to correct for this in a standard mechanical transmission system is eliminated, making it less costly to maintain and repair over time
