Beckhoff Automation’s new AM8500 series of servo motors are designed to provide highly dynamic servo motor technology to a wider range of applications. The motors are suitable for all applications with larger external mass inertias — in particular CNC applications in machine tools and woodworking machines, the company says. Typical areas of application for the AM8500 servo motors also include printing machines, as well as film winders and feeding drive units. The AM8500 series covers a wide performance range with four sizes and three lengths with standstill torques from 1.38 to 29 Nm. A particular highlight, which is featured on all servo motors from the AM8000 series, is the One Cable Technology (OCT), with which the power and feedback systems are combined into one standard motor cable.
