Siemens UK & Ireland is unveiling several new servo motors for use in machine tools. The new developments include the Simotics S-1FT7 compact synchronous servomotor with shaft height 132 and the Simotics S-1FG1 servo geared motor, which is available in a variety of models. Other innovations include the powerful Simotics M-1FE2 built-in motor in size 180 with high-torque segments, for use in large rotary tables and spindles.

Despite its compact size, the naturally cooled Simotics S1FT7 servomotor with shaft height 132 features a higher torque and consumes less power than previous models. The servomotor provides 90 to 170 Newton meters (Nm) of torque depending on its length, making it especially suitable for large machine tools.

Simotics S-1FG1 servo geared motors have four types of gears and different gear ratios, enabling users to select the right configuration to meet their needs. Due to its superior energy efficiency and flexible torque ratio, the servo geared motor is especially suitable for use with auxiliary units such as pallet changers, chip conveyors, and feeder units.

In addition, the Simotics M-1FE2 built-in motor in size 180 has been designed for machining larger workpieces. The use of permanent magnets allows the spindle motor to achieve a particularly high torque density. With its high performance and internal diameter of 200mm, the Simotics M-1FE2 is also suitable for use in large turning and milling centres as well as for sophisticated machining processes.

Andy Hodgson, General Manager – Motion Control, Digital Factory at Siemens UK & Ireland comments: “We are continually investing in our product portfolios to help meet the needs of manufacturers in the UK and beyond, and these additions to our motors range are designed to drive manufacturing efficiencies and improve productivity for users.”

Siemens UK & Ireland also offers Simotics T-1FW68 high-performance segment motors. With a high torque of up to 1 millionNm, these direct drives can handle large to very large diameters. The segment motors allow for flexible configuration and can also be operated with a smaller number of stator segments.
