Stainless steel servomotors
July 28, 2014 – Kollmorgen’s line of robust stainless steel AKMH motors are designed specifically to address the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). The IP69K-rated synchronous servomotors feature a hygienic housing design that meets EHEDG, NSF, BISSC and 3A guidelines. The AKMH Servomotor is constructed with materials to provide long life and trouble-free operation, even with daily exposure to chemicals and high-pressure washdowns, the company says, adding that its single-cable solution reduces the number of potential failure modes and minimizes installation time. The smooth surface design, and use of highly corrosion-resistant 316L stainless steel, decreases the risk of product recalls by reducing the possibility of bacteria growth. The AKMH requires no additional protection and can be sanitized without covering it or removing it from the machine.
