This year, Motek, the leading trade fair for the world of automation, is taking place for the 39th time from October 5 to October 8, 2021 as an on-site trade fair in Stuttgart. ebm‑papst will be showcasing compact and intelligent drive solutions for this field of application at Stand 1320 in Hall 1.
Economical automation solutions are more in demand than ever. Networking capabilities and, as a result, communication between components are also gaining importance. The compact servo drives from ebm‑papst are ideal for decentralized applications in production and assembly automation, handling systems and industrial robots.
Modular drive system – something for everyone
In ebm‑papst’s modular drive system, EC motors can be flexibly combined with integrated encoders, transmissions and brakes, making them suitable for a wide range of applications. The "heart" of all configurations is a brushless, electronically commutated internal rotor motor. The rotor position is detected by integrated Hall sensors, which are actuated by external controllers. Thanks to the controller’s integrated intelligence, the drive can be freely programmed, similar to a PLC. Therefore, the drive solutions from ebm‑papst support condition monitoring and predictive maintenance in line with GreenIntelligence. The existing range of motors with a diameter of 42 mm (power range of up to 100 W) is now being supplemented with motors with a diameter of 63 mm (power range of up to 400 W) and will be presented for the first time at Motek.
Drive solutions from ebm‑papst for SIMATIC drive controllers combine state-of-the-art networking capabilities with functional safety in the safety extra-low voltage range. For example, the servo drive system is suitable for precise positioning tasks in automation technology, in shuttles for stacker cranes and storage rack systems, in automated guided vehicles (AGVs), and in medical technology.
Hygiene concept and tickets
Motek is relying on a comprehensive hygiene concept (as at August 2021). All exhibitors and visitors must prove that they are not infected with SARS-CoV-2, which can be done in three ways (vaccinated, recovered or tested). Mask wearing is obligatory on the trade fair grounds (as of August 2021).
Participation in the trade fair is subject to a charge; there is no ticket sale on site and there are only day tickets available. There are vouchers for free attendance at ebm‑papst from www.ebmpapst.com/motek.
