When is it time to switch to a Servomotor?
The unpredictable global economy has derailed formally reliable supply chains, causing extra stress on both established products and systems currently in development. Prior to 2018, many engineers selected motors and motion control options based on what they used on the previous machine design. Today, engineers have the burden of factoring in product availability and price on top of system performance. This responsibility can be daunting. No matter if your biggest concern is system price, performance or the details of integration, Delta Line is here to help.
Our mission at Delta Line is to provide the industry’s most agile, flexible and personal service in motion systems. This is why we support a robust range of products that includes motors, controllers, integrated motors, linear actuators, gearboxes, encoders and more. Delta Line has been in the motion control industry for more than 40 years and we have first-hand experience garnered from our product portfolio, including the popular brushless slotted motor line that has been in applications for over two decades. We recently added a servo motor family that includes low and medium voltage motors. We know that historically, “servo” was associated with only high-cost product options. However, our customers have found that our Servo Motors, like our other motors, are a price-attractive option. Our application engineers focus on performance per Euro in order to match customers up with the ideal motion solution. Customers seek out Delta Line’s competency for both new applications and existing applications where the availability or cost of current systems has become prohibitive.
It happens more times than anyone wants to admit – you simply need more performance out of one (or more) axis. We often see stepper motors being pushed to where servo motors are now the better option. Managing the technology change from stepper to servo appears overwhelming at the surface, but with Delta Line’s low voltage optimized Servo Motor options, we can help you manage the jump. The engineers at Delta Line can help you select the right servo motor to replace your stepper motor. We also provide a wide range of servo controller options to complement our motors including DC, AC, programmable, multi-axis drives and integrated motor controllers. The Delta Line drives are also available with EtherCAT, Modbus, CANopen and Profinet. Our application engineers also assist with the other important details including connectors, cables, feedback devices and more. Whether you are looking for a simple system to replace a stepper axis or are ready to take on a more advanced approach, we have the motion and drive pairing for you.
We’ve seen countless applications where an existing axis needs to make a change: from simple winding adjustments to new motor types to complete system redesigns. Instead of struggling through the change curve yourself, let our application engineers assist you. We know your time is valuable, which is why we have CAD drawings and other support documents available. Engage our technical support as you need it – we provide a wide range of application support, including firmware, software and mechanical compatibility. Since our portfolio of products is so robust, we can support you on a variety of different products to meet your performance requirements.
