There are countless different facets to the industrial automation field. While the different areas of automation may require different technology, they all have something in common: precision. Making sure position, velocity and acceleration are at their specified values is the primary function of servomotors. Whether you’re in the field of robotics, CNC machining or automated manufacturing, there are servomotors available for your needs.

Precision and efficiency are key to running a functioning automation system, which in turn, is key to your business. Servomotors are not actually a specific class of motors; servomotors use feedback to control their own motion and position. Dependable position, velocity and acceleration are crucial for any form of automation to run efficiently. Servomotors are typically paired with an encoder of some form to give feedback on both position and speed.

If you’re looking to switch from stepper motors to servomotors, there are many benefits of these rotary actuators. Servomotors deliver more feedback than stepper motors do, allowing your work to be done with greater accuracy. Also, servomotors are a closed-loop mechanism while stepper motors are an open-loop mechanism. While a servomotor rests after it has rotated to the desired position, stepper motors do not; rather, they lock and hold onto the desired position, all while consuming power.

Distributing servomotors from only the best companies is what makes RILCO Industrial Controls stand out from the competition when you are looking for industrial automation supplies. Our main partner for servomotors is Altek Motion. Altek carries AC Servomotors (by SEM and Altek Motion) and Brushless DC Servomotors. With numerous years designing and manufacturing for the industrial automation business, Altek Motion knows what motor works best for each application. Not entirely sure what motor you need though? Altek offers Downloadable PDFs with information on all of their products to help you figure out which one suits your needs. And, as this company designs and manufacturers servomotors, you know that the product you’ll receive will get the job done - with accuracy, of course.

PNOZ s30 – Making Safe Turns Simple
Friday, June 30, 2017

Pilz, an international leader in automation safety, recently announced the release of the Pilz brand speed monitor PNOZ s30 with a new analogue output feature.  The PNOZ s 30 from Pilz safely monitors standstill, speed, speed range, direction of rotation and broken shear pin up to the highest category PL e/SIL CL 3.  Pilz knows that the ability to work securely while the safety gate is open with reduced set-up times and faster access to the machine once standstill is initiated are of great benefit to you.  And that is what you get with when the PNOZ s30 is employed. PNOZ s30 is suitable for all common drive/motor feedback systems and proximity switches on the market and the new configurable analogue output makes diagnostics much more user-friendly.  How will this benefit you specifically, you ask?
