TBM Automation AG receives Silver Partner award from Kollmorgen Europe GmbH
Kollmorgen Europe GmbH acknowledges and awards companies that run their own competence center for motion control and drive technology as part of their new distributor partner program.
TBM Automation AG was honored as one of the few companies in Europe that qualifies as a Kollmorgen Competence Center. Since 1991 Motion & Drives have been part of the core business of the TBM Automation AG in Widnau and since 2003 has sucessfully established itself as a Swiss distributor with its own stock of Kollmorgen products.
Since the trend toward vertical integration in the control and drive technology industry began, the co-engineering between the drive manufacturer, distributor and customer has become especially important. The distributor not only has the role of a supplier, but acts as an important know-how provider and a vital link for customer projects. The services range from design, configuration and programming to support throughout the life cycle of products to achieve optimal customer benefits.
Kollmorgen offers its new AKD Programmable Drive Multiaxis Master (PDMM) as a successful and proven powerful platform for motion control. The device combines the market-leading performance of AKD servo controller with the PLC and motion control of Kollmorgen Automation Suite. As a result of this cost-optimized device up to 8 axes can be synchronized within 1 ms via EtherCAT without external control! For higher performance requirements or number of axes the compatible "Programmable Automation Controller" (PAC) can be used. This scalability keeps engineering costs low and offers high flexibility.
As a result this system meets the performance requirements of almost any application in packaging, converting, printing, food and beverage, material deformation, solar and medical technology.
