Kollmorgen Recognized as 2012 Control Design Readers’ Choice in Stepper Motor Category

POSTED 10/26/2012

70+ years of motion control expertise combine with wide range of off-the-shelf solutions featuring industry-leading torque density, rapid customization capabilities and global footprint to help OEMs achieve competitive advantage

RADFORD, VA – Kollmorgen has been recognized by Control Design magazine as the 2012 Readers’ Choice for technology excellence in the Stepper Motor category. The Readers’ Choice awards are the result of an unaided survey of subscribers who have authority to specify, recommend or purchase industrial automation and control products. Hardware and software categories are listed without any list of vendors, and participants are asked to indicate the single best vendor for the products he or she has experience with. Kollmorgen high-performance stepper motors deliver precise, cost-effective, and maintenance-free motion control, along with the highest torque density of any stepper motors available today. This enables OEMs to get more power from the same size motor, or to specify a smaller motor and reduce the size of their machine without any compromise in performance.

“We are proud to be recognized by Control Design readers for our market leading stepper motor technology and application expertise, which is rooted in more than 70 years of motion control experience,” says Gene Matthews, Product Manager. “Kollmorgen offers an industry leading depth and breadth of off-the-shelf stepper solutions with a global footprint that enables us to speed delivery of the right product and lend support, where and when they’re needed. And when unique applications demand modified or customized solutions Kollmorgen can help machine builders go from ‘back of the napkin’ type ideas to testing their application in a matter of days.”

Kollmorgen offers a wide range of high performance stepper motor solutions that run cooler, produce more torque and support higher shaft loads to satisfy diverse application needs and help OEMs build a superior performing machine, faster. Kollmorgen also offers stepper motors that combine optimal magnetics in a housingless frame with a large diameter rotor and innovative rotor-stator design to produce more torque and smoother microstepping than comparably sized steppers, as well as Hazardous-duty stepper motors suitable for use in Class 1, Division 1, Group D locations.

“Whether you’re a machine builder who needs a standard off the shelf stepper motor or a motor customized for your particular application, Kollmorgen has the depth and breadth of technology and expertise to delivery exactly what you need, when and where you need it,” says Matthews.

Stepper motor technology will be part of an interactive demo for visitors to experience precise hands-on motion control at Kollmorgen booth 7566 at PACK EXPO 2012. The show runs from October 28 – 31, 2012, at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois. Kollmorgen will also be exhibiting its family of high-performance motion systems, components and services. The Kollmorgen booth will feature other live and interactive demos to illustrate the performance capabilities of the latest motion and automation technology in action.
