Hygienic power transmission solutions

Published

on

Altra Industrial Motion Corp. will be well represented at CIBUS TEC 2019, with leading brands Bauer Gear Motor and Kollmorgen both showcasing hygienic solutions for the food and beverage industry. One of the world’s leading technology exhibitions for the sector, CIBUS TEC attendees will have the chance to view hygienic geared motors and motion control products on the Altra Industrial Motion stand throughout the event.

CIBUS TEC 2019 takes place from 22nd – 25th October at Fiere di Parma, Viale delle Esposizioni 393A – 43126 in Parma, Italy. Altra Industrial Motion will be located in Hall 06, Booth B 038.

Resistance to washdowns and minimising contamination risks are key provisos for power transmission equipment in the food and beverage industry. Reliability and efficiency are additional drivers, as operators want to maximise return on their product in a market that typically offers low profit margins per unit. Solutions on the Altra Industrial Motion stand directly address these challenges.

Bauer Gear Motor’s HiflexDRIVE range is a well-established series of hygienic geared motors for conveying applications. Ingress protection can be specified at either IP67 or IP69K – ensuring the HiflexDRIVE is suitable for high pressure washdowns. The smooth exterior can be specified in full stainless steel or aseptic, ideal for areas with high or low mechanical impact risk respectively. All models are fan-less, which ensures potential contaminates are not spread through the application area during operation. The range is available in efficiency ratings up to IE5, allowing operators to minimise energy costs.

Stainless steel motors, servo motors and gearboxes form Kollmorgen’s offering at CIBUS TEC this year. The AKMH range of geared and servomotors both deliver IP69K ingress protection as standard, with the smooth durable exteriors excellent at resisting contamination.

Both are manufactured to EHEDG and 3A hygienic design standards. In addition, the Kollmorgen “Open” Gearbox features TRUE Planetary™ gearing to enhance load capacity, reduce backlash and allow for smoother operation than non-helical gearheads.  Highly precise, it also incorporates RediMount™ technology for efficient installation.

Altra Industrial Motion provides its customers with a global supply capability, paired with responsive engineering teams on hand to provide localised support where required. Leading brands combine to offer complete drive chain solutions, delivering interoperability to boost reliability. Visitors to CIBUS TEC will be able to meet with expert engineers on stand throughout the event to discuss application requirements.

IKO MX Series Shall Involve Dust-Protection in Specific Conditions

Published

on

IKO International is building on its standard MX series of linear roller bearings to include special features for environments that are sensitive to metal chips, dust, and other contaminants.

Dust protection

A dust protective C-Wiper can be mounted to the outside of the end seal, ensuring operation in environments where metal chips are spattering. After 1,000 km of operation, the C-Wiper prevented foreign substances from entering the slide unit with no damage to the end seal.

Maintenance-free

The MX specification integrates IKO’s proprietary C-Lube lubrication system. As the cylindrical rollers circulate, lubricant is distributed to the loading area through the rollers along the track rail. Lubrication is properly maintained in the loading area for over 12,500 miles, reducing valuable time spent lubricating hard to reach parts.

High load capacity

The MX models utilize rows of cylindrical rollers to provide a greater contact area than slides that use steel balls. They also maintain high rigidity in every direction. As a result, bearings deliver high load capacities––up to 674 kN for dynamic loads and 1,300 kN for static loads.
Mounting dimensions are compatible with MH and LWH ball type series. If you want to transition from a ball type to a roller type, your mounting dimensions do not need to change.

A new lease of life for your STUDER machine with a machine overhaul

Published

on

FRITZ STUDER AG, Motion Meeting Press Event

Anything that works as hard as a cylindrical grinding machine will wear out. This is particularly obvious in the geometry and precision. STUDER doesn’t just support the customer in the purchase of new machines, but can also offer a complete machine overhaul A machine overhaul at STUDER makes an old machine into one that is as good as new; in other words, a machine that has the same tolerances as when it was first delivered.

STUDER has been carrying out machine overhauls for 20 years. Every day, more than 25 employees are involved in giving machines and assemblies a new lease of life. In the supreme discipline of machine overhauls, over 400 machines have been completely overhauled to date. Countless assemblies have also been overhauled. Irrespective of whether machine or assembly, they all have one thing in common: An overhaul at STUDER is carried out by the original manufacturer with its unique knowledge and expertise, and according to the same quality standards as for new machines. At the end the customer gets a product whose quality and precision are comparable to that of a new machine.

Trusted precision and quality

A machine overhaul fully restores the original precision and quality and verifies this by means of a certificate. Changing requirements such as reconfigurations, automation or even digitalization can also be implemented in conjunction with the overhaul.

Thanks to the STUDER quality, the customer receives a new one-year warranty on the overhaul. This also includes ensuring parts availability again. As the machine is ultimately restored to the original condition, an overhaul provides the customer with an outstanding price/performance ratio compared to the former purchase price. STUDER can provide the customer with a specific loan machine for the duration of the machine overhaul if required.

Machine overhaul at a glance

  • Machine base: Completely overhauled, ribbed guideways milled, recast and repainted.
  • Control cabinet: Replacement of wear parts in the electric cabinet.
  • Pneumatics: New valves, hoses and filters.
  • Hydraulics: New hydraulic and lubricating system, all new valves and hoses.
  • Workhead: Completely overhauled.
  • Wheelhead: Completely overhauled.
  • Tailstock: Completely overhauled.
  • Axes: Tables as new, installation of new recirculating ball screw and bearings.
  • Component casings: Sand-blasted, repainted, color according to STUDER design or customer requirement.
  • Control system: Existing control system is retained.
  • Delivery: Always with precise measurement of new machine tolerance including test certificates.
  • Loan machine: We can provide a loan machine on request.
  • Renewed original CE certificate
