SPS/IPC/Drives 2016 "Five linear axes, four rotatory axes, three Industrial Ethernets for two groups of customers from one partner" – this was the motto under which we invited customers and prospective clients for a visit at the SPS/IPC/Drives 2016 in Nuremberg. At our stand 4-220 in the drives hall 4, our servo drive systems with high dynamics showed their capabilities.

The two groups of customers are, on one side, machine manufacturer OEMs and systems integrators who are looking for components in order to realize their drive tasks, and, on the other side, special machine manufacturers or end users who prefer solutions, sometimes including the complete engineering. Many people made their visit to the fair worthwhile and discussed their application with our experts.

SPS/IPC/Drives 2015 Participation in the SPS/IPC/Drives 2015 in Nuremberg. At our stand 4-220 in the drives hall 4, we showed our servo drive systems with high dynamics in action.

Our focus this year was on the various possibilities to realize linear movements, from classical toothed belt and spindle axes via linear motors to particularly clever alternatives to pneumatic and hydraulic cylinders. But of course, rotational applications with AC servo motors and torque motors also did not miss out.

Even more dynamics: Further development of hardware and software of the popular digital servo drives TrioDrive D and MidiDrive D has led to a remarkable reduction of execution times. This results in a lot of advantages for the user: faster reaction to inputs and setpoint values, faster output of signals and actual values, and faster execution of the optionally integrated positioning control (part program) – or, in total, higher dynamics.
