Kollmorgen VLM motors

Share this on social media:

Kollmorgen’s new VLM servomotor series, now available from Heason Technology, is aimed at filling the gap between stepper and high-performance servo motors.

The VLM series of synchronous servo motors offer OEMs, machine builders and end-users an excellent price-performance proposition in the torque range of 0.5 to 4.5Nm continuous and 16Nm peak, with speeds of up to 6000rpm, the company says. They also provide highly flexible configuration, proven quality and high reliability.

Heason Technology says the motors are a useful solution for many applications where stepper or asynchronous motors are pushed to their limits, but the expense and unused dynamics of high-performance servo motors is not desirable.

The many standard design and configuration options built into the range allow engineers an optimal solution from the outset, to tailor their applications and machine requirements. Thus, installation time and cost is minimized and the price-performance ratio is further improved.

The motors are available with standard frame sizes of 60mm and 90mm or NEMA 23 and 34 in each of the six most popular motor sizes and with a choice of twelve standard windings. The extensive possibilities for shaft and mounting facilitate seamless integration into virtually any system, says Heason.
