Baumüller Introduces Planetary Geared Servo Motors
Nuremberg. A compact unit consisting of a dynamic servo motor for direct connection in combination with a powerful planetary drive: This concept has exceeded all of the Baumüller group’s expectations. The initial steps in the shape of the DSD 45…IPG about two years ago are regarded as a major success. The concept is now being expanded upwards accordingly: The DSD 56…IPG is the consistent continuance of this successful product.

Like the DSD 45…IPG, the DSD 56…IPG is extremely suitable for applications with maximum torque and dynamics requirements because of its integrated planetary drive. Unlike comparable conventional combinations, terminal connections and additional bearings are not required. This makes the drive package much more compact, gives it less inertia and makes it stiffer for direct torque transfer.

The DSD 56…IPG will be supplied as a self-cooling version with a fully encapsulated motor. A continuous housing design was also selected for both components. The smooth, slim housing surface does not attract soiling. A high protection class has also been achieved for use in harsh industrial environments (IP65). The motor can still be mounted from the rear in order to make it easier to fit in situations where little room is available. The transmission ratios of i=4 and i=8 and appropriate peak torques for dynamic deployment have been perfectly matched to each other.

The integrated planetary drive is outstanding because of its low circumferential backlash, high tilting resistance and high efficiency. It is also extremely quiet.

The DSD 56…IPG is currently being tested at customer sites. Additional in-house testing under tightened-up conditions is also currently in progress. Series production of the motor is due to start in 2006.
