Looking for ways to reduce the carbon footprint of your machines?

It is quite possible to reconcile, two things that seemed opposite not so long ago, thanks to the new technology. Reduce energy consumption and increase the performance of a machine. Pneumatic technologies for example are very inefficient, in some cases there is only 10% of the energy consumed that is used by the cylinders the rest is lost in heat and other losses in the system. In addition to generating more noise they require a compressor,  an imposing amount of air preparation device (lubricator, regulator, accumulator, valve and silencer). The maintenance of these devices is intensive and in some cases the adjustment of the regulators is more witchcraft than technique. A change in temperature or humidity can result in a complete adjustment. Not to mention the replacement of the cylinders because the cousin at the end of the stroke no longer does its job or that the operator has changed the pressure of the system. LinMot has developed a linear motor that has the shape of a cylinder but the properties of a servo motor.

So complete control over speed and position. In addition, the technology does not include wear parts and requires very little maintenance. You will be able to increase the pace without breaking the equipment, in addition to an  increase of  efficiency ( 95% to 98%)  , the solution is also not influenced by moisture. Once adjusted the actions will be repetitive and will not change over time. This results in a reduction in startup time and reduction of service calls on the machine.

Another technology that consumes quite a lot of energy is hydraulics. The efficiency of this technology is about 50% and also uses several more or less complex devices to make everything work 🙁 Pump, Regulator, Piping, Cooler, Valve and Oil Tank). Oil is increasingly becoming an environmental concern especially in food processes. There are vegetable oils but it is less durable and requires more maintenance. Oil changes generate waste that can be potentially mismanaged

There are linear positioning technologies in the form of cylinder, belt or rack and pinion that are powered by a Servo motor that have an efficiency of more than 90%.

Their accuracy is better and so is their durability. For the most part maintenance-free other than lubrication of their bearings they present less risk to the environment and are much greener and more efficient technologies.

Another source to improve your energy efficiency is to favour high-efficiency speed reducers. Worm Gear type gearboxes generally have a low efficiency VS Planetary or helical gearbox. So pay attention to the choices of your gearboxes and try to choose products in the 90% efficiency. There is up to 40% energy saving possible. Especially in large gear ratio  .

There also other benefit with lower friction comes lower heat dispassion , so your gearbox run cooler and you will need less BTU to cool down your plant. Your Oil and Seals will also last longer.

In summary it is possible to improve productivity and reduce operating costs if you go electric . New technologies are more expensive but if we take into account the total cost of ownership they become more competitive than traditional linear fluid power option.

In addition the servo drive technologies are already ready for Industry 4.0, You will have a more efficient process in addition of having more data on the process.

For example your drive know in all time : Position and Speed

Capping, Filling, Screwing Facilitated by LinMot Rotary and Linear Technology

Linmot

LinMot have combined a rotating and linear axis in the same axis making integration easier. The system controls the position, the speed of all axes in addition, of the force. So you can do a quality control directly to the assembly in addition to being able to store the information in a given database. LinMot also makes integration with the PLC easy thanks to the different version of servo drive available on the most common communications buses. For Rockwell users an EThernet IP version and an CIP Sync version are available.

You are looking for a high-pressure wash-down stainless steel actuator or gantry? Several options are available from Macron Dynamic

Macron offers several options for environments with high pressure wash. The whole thing is made to meet the IP69K standards

First of all the aluminum actuator can be equipped with the Stainless option or all the accessories are made of stainless steel and where a standard tubular frame is hard-coated anodized.

Macron also offers for extreme environments the MSA-SSB Series such as the photo above, where the whole body is made of stainless steel.

Optional blue food grade guidance wheels are available.

Contact us for your Wash down actuator need , Macron has several configurations available including custom versions

New! IP69K stainless steel actuator at Linmot

LinMot introduces new stainless steel actuators. The new generation features a new, more compact design that improves heat dissipation. The new approach increases the power, decreases the mass of the units and eliminates the use of liquid cooling. The new Linear Motors is an addition to the current range to make one of the best IP69K offerings on the market 😎

In addition a Guided version is available, with more rigidity than the original version thanks to the larger guide. The shaft are hollow so the weight and inertia remains low.

It is also possible to combine the units to produce a complete Pick and Place solution ideal for applications with wash down

(Meat, Chicken, Dairy Products, Pharmaceuticals)
