Motor-integrated drive offers onboard safety features and communications

Siemens introduces the Sinamics G110M, a motor-integrated drive for Simogear gear motors, offering flexible control, integrated safety, simple installation and a space-saving design.  With a high degree of protection — up to IP66 — this new gear motor drive provides the perfect solution to most material handling-related challenges, including conveyors, warehousing, logistics, baggage and cargo handling, post and parcel shipping, plus numerous industrial applications in the automotive, appliance and test stand industries.

Simogear gear motors offer high torque density, low noise and high efficiency — and now with Sinamics G110M, it becomes easier for designers and system builders to integrate gear motors into a variety of control architectures. Plug connections for onboard I/O ensure fast installation, while optional power connectors deliver even more time savings.  The system is delivered pre-configured and the drive offers simple yet comprehensive onboard diagnostic features.  Options such as internal braking resistors and motor brakes — operational simultaneously — and integrated features such as “Quick Stop” and the limit switch function make this system ideal for conveyor applications.

For uses requiring safety technology, the Sinamics G110M offers integrated safety functions such as “Safe Torque Off” (STO), which can be activated via a fail-safe input or via Profisafe, without needing additional safety monitoring components.

Sinamics G110M features integral USS/Modbus RTU, Profibus and Profinet / EtherNet/IP communication profiles.

Dukane Laser Welding Workcell

Dukane Laser Welding Workcell

Dukane Corporation, St. Charles IL introduces a new Laser Welding System that allows clear-to-clear plastic welding without the need of any laser absorbing additives. This system incorporates a recently developed 2-micron laser with a greatly increased absorption by clear polymers and enables a highly controlled melting through the thickness of optically clear parts.

New beam delivery system integrates both a programmable multi-axes servo gantry and a scan head, supported by proprietary LaserLinQTM software, which harmonizes the action of both components moving the beam. This assures highly precise and controllable beam delivery when welding mid-size and large components.

LaserLinQTM also provides users with the ability to break complex weld patterns into separate geometric segments, modify each segment independently and assign different welding parameters to each segment. The CCTV camera integrated within the machine enables a live weld preview on the HMI screen and the ability to directly monitor and record welding cycles for further analysis. All laser enclosures are Class I CDRH certified and utilize laser-safe glass viewing windows.

This Dukane flexible welding system also allows rapid changeover of a wide variety of highly specialized tooling cassettes. The tools, as a standard, incorporate binary tool ID recognition for automatic weld recipe recall. They support multi-cavity function, multiple feature detection, vision systems and independent clamping systems to compensate for part variations.

Manufacturers from various industries including medical, electronics and appliances can benefit from this clear-to-clear laser welding solution.

 

Dukane Corporation offers a full range of ultrasonicvibrationspin, hot plate welders, and thermal presses, probes, tooling and software for both OEM and the commercial plastic assembly markets. Dukane is an ISO 9001:2000 certified manufacturer with 24/7 Service. For more information on Dukane’s Laser welding System, and their complete line of plastic assembly solutions, contact Jason Barton, National Sales and Marketing Manager.
