Mid-performance, high torque per pound servomotor

Inmocovisit website


Inmoco is introducing a range of servomotors with an optimal balance of performance and competitive pricing. The Kollmorgen VLM covers the torque range 0.5Nm to 16Nm (peak) and incorporates the features most often needed by users, providing a motion product that is suitable for a wide range of applications with mid-performance requirements (various kinds of handling, transport applications, low performance cut-to-length applications, rotary knife, machine tool change etc.)

These motors are based on carefully selected components that were both developed and are produced in Radford, Virginia USA. They include flying leads to eliminate the cost of sourcing cables separately, and are suitable for use with many competitively priced feedback devices.

The VLM motors complement Inmoco’s other servomotor offerings, such as the high-performance Kollmorgen AKM(TM) servomotor. Performance is between AKM and stepper, asynchronous motors.

With 12 standard windings, VLM servomotors are offered in most popular motor sizes and have options for both NEMA and Metric mounting. There is a choice of shaft configurations plus further user-selectable options, allowing a motor to be specified for easy integration into the host machines and systems.

Rated speed is up to 6000rpm operating at 160/320V DC or 120/240V AC, and the VLM servomotors deliver up to 4.53Nm continuous torque (16Nm peak). Frame size options are NEMA 23 and 34 (60mm and 90mm). Protection is to IP40, the VLM is RoHS compliant, CE and UL approved (with cUL pending). The alternatives for feedback include SFD, resolver, 2048 ppr comcoder and Hall sensors.
