New range of positioning systems adds servo drive functionality

halstrup-walcher announces the launch of a new range of products with direct drives for automatic format changeover. These mechatronic systems with integrated control, bus interface and optional absolute measurement system (without battery) are ideal for adjusting machine axles.

The stepping motor with integrated control and bus communication provides the capability for higher speeds at low torques. This offers similar performance to servo drives with controllers and encoders – yet in a far more compact design. When developing and manufacturing electronic and software components, halstrup-walcher can draw on more than 20 years of experience in the area of positioning systems. The company will also be incorporating its trusted hollow shaft (optional) in the products. This can be mounted directly on the spindle without a coupling. In addition, the drives will be produced in two designs that allow for horizontal and vertical installation as well. The first devices will be available in early 2018 with an IO-Link interface and CANopen.

Visit halstrup-walcher at SPS IPC Drives, Booth 131 in Hall 4 to discover more about these and other products.
