Senimar Drive The Driver

Motion control and more at the first EITE seminar

On the 20th of September, the first sales and technical seminar, “Drive the Driver”, was held in a prestigious venue in Cardano al Campo. It was sponsored directly by Estun Industrial Technology Europe.

The meeting, which included Italian and international partners, was an opportunity to present the functions of the ESTUN range of products for industrial automation, which includes high performance servo motors and servo drives. Special attention was given to the technologies used to develop system solutions, with an architecture that begins from the controller and ends with the cable.

Seminar Drive the driver - a speech

Specialised controllers for motion control and CNC

Speakers at the event included the Application Engineer of TRIO Motion, a company of the Estun group (specialised in the development of high flexibility Motion controller that can continuously manage from 1 to 128 servo motor axes), and the Promax company, a partner of EITE, which presented its own solutions in G-Code and the CNC segment. These solutions integrate perfectly with the Drives and Motors developed and produced by the Estun Automation Group, which confirms the quality and their possible use in applications for the Italian and European market.

Future prospects

EITE shared with its participants a preview of the new product technologies that will be officially presented at the SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg (27-29 November 2018).

This confirms how the partnership with Estun can contribute to increasing their current and future business.

We would like to thank the companies below that made this productive event a success:

The circular blade die cutter is a continually rotating machine that makes products widely used in portable computers, LCDs, backlit LCDs and a variety of other fields.

To work correctly and ensure optimal performance, the roll must be kept at a constant tension, while the axle of the tool must have high synchronisation precision.

Estun Industrial Technology offers a complete solution consisting of a TRIO MC664 controller, a ProNet Plus Ethercat servodrive and an EMJ servomotor.

Use of the EMJ servomotor reduces reluctance torque and torque fluctuation. Servomotors in the EMJ family, assembled with 17 or 20 bit serial encoders and available in different sizes, reach 5000 RPM and support peak torques of up to 3 times the declared torque.

With a power range of 50W ~ 5kW, the ProNET Plus EtherCAT servosystem, with basic EtherCAT (Ethernet Control Automation Technology) connectivity, guarantees high performance in environments with little rigidity.

The shaft on the cutting tool uses a 20-bit encoder with high synchronisation and precision.

The Ethercat local bus offers high speed and performance in real time and guarantees precise synchronisation of position and speed for the single shaft on the blade holder.

Simple wiring, saving on space and costs: these are the benefits of Estun Industrial Technology’s ETS Plus servo drives.

Capable of handling up to 3 motor axes from 50W to 1.0kW at the same time, ETS Plus servo drives make the most of computing resources and significantly reduce installation bulk, offering an advantage over solutions based on use of multiple single-axis servo drives.

Estun Industrial Technology’s device can support overloads of triple the rated value, with high speed and high precision.

Capable of monitoring inertia due to overloads in real time, it continuously regulates mechanical gain to ensure better control.

Moreover, ETS Plus servo drives are ideal for integration in CANopen and Modbus architectures.

They can also be included in a centralised monitoring system in communication with PLC, DCS, intelligent instruments and touch screens.
