February 12, 2018 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Feb. 12, 2018 – The AMKASYN centralized control and drive portfolio from AMK Automation includes KE/KW servo converters, KE/KW controller cards, the A Series motion controller and AMKAMAC I/O.
AMK says the KE/KW servo motors combine an “extremely compact design with a cost-effective modular structure” that provides several flexible combination options for machine builders. With a choice of cooling systems, single- and multi-axis solutions, and choice of controller cards, AMK describes the system as “ideal for highly dynamic positioning tasks requiring maximum energy efficiency.” The A-series motion controllers are available as control cabinet motion controllers and as complete units with touch displays. In each case they have programming in CODESYS, visualization and motion control rolled into one. The KE/KW controller cards are application-oriented and work with all major communication protocols, which the company says provides scalable functionality and machine safety capabilities. Rounding out the portfolio is the AMKAMAC I/O, featuring a modular design that can be installed without tools. The portfolio is suitable for a range of applications including: tubular bag packaging; blister packaging; carton forming; palletizing; pick and place; labelling; wrapping; order picking; sealing plastics; printing; paper processing; and machine tooling.
