New Servo Motor From Rockwell Automation Improves Machine Performance

20 April 2017

New Servo Motor From Rockwell Automation Improves Machine Performance
With the new Kinetix VPC servo motors, manufacturers can run machines at higher speeds and higher torque, significantly improving machine throughput. The motor’s interior permanent magnets allow for field weakening, which helps achieve higher speeds as torque rolls off. A cooling fan and cooling fins provide increased torque, and more robust bearings help reduce downtime. A single cable for power and feedback helps reduce maintenance needs. The motors meet or exceed IE4 efficiency ratings.
