It was a complex challenge: liquids of varying viscosity needed to be dosed into pads efficiently and precisely in a dishwasher pad forming machine at Harro Höfliger GmbH – up to six million times a day. Harro Höfliger’s developers put their trust in small servo drive systems from WITTENSTEIN cyber motor, which are made from 100% stainless steel and hence resistant to corrosion. The compact, lightweight design likewise won the customer’s enthusiasm straight away owing to significant space saving. Moreover, the web server integrated in the servo drive provides “always on” connectivity, so that the dosing stations and each individual dosing drive can be accessed at any time for optimization or servicing.
A perfect team: Servo motors and actuators in the cyber® dynamic line
In WITTENSTEIN cyber motor’s portfolio of small servo drive systems, the servo motors and actuators in the cyber® dynamic line team up with the servo drives in the cyber® simco® line to form custom configurable, high performance and power dense functional units. The motor-gearbox units can be supplied with different output ratings and with a corrosion resistant or hygienic design; together with our intelligent servo drives offering web server functionality and numerous possible fieldbus interfaces, they enable individually scalable drive solutions that are both high performance and future proof – like the one developed for a product forming machine at packaging equipment specialist Harro Höfliger.
