With its AKM motor series, Kollmorgen offers an energy-efficient solution which frequently pays off within one year, particularly in highly dynamic applications. The synchronous servomotors meet the highest efficiency class with IE4 in accordance with the new standard IEC 60034-30. On average, they require 30% less energy than traditional asynchronous motors. The energy balance of the motor improves further when they are combined with Kollmorgen's versatile AKD Servo Drive. Such a servo system allows the energy demand to be lowered by more than 40%. Savings of up to 1,000 Euro are possible per axis and per year. If AKM motors are combined with the AKD servo amplifier, the energy efficiency of a drive solution can be increased further as evidenced by comparative test series.
