SPS Norimberga

The 2018 SPS IPC Drives international industrial automation expo just ended in Nuremberg where Estun Group reaped success in terms of specialised operator visits and interest.

It was the perfect time to introduce the new ED3M series drives, 400W, EtherCat, double axis; the EM3A series motors smaller than EMJ series and faster (up to 6000 rpm) and the ED3S servo drive which will be on the market in the first quarter of 2019.

ED3S key points are:

  • Compact mounting (side by side);
  • Single-phase or three-phase AC power supply;
  • DC BUS sharing;
  • STO SIL3;
  • 2 built-in encoder interfaces;
  • Up to 55°C at full power;
  • Built-in USB ports for debugging and upgrades.

Another important highlight at the booth that drew visitors’ attention was the demo dedicated to pick and place robotics. Leader in industrial robotics in China, Estun will introduce the new SCARA 4-axis robots on the European market in 2019.

Estun would like to thank its customers and international visitors who demonstrated their interest by visiting the booth and appreciating the company’s features and innovative spirit.

This important event was also a chance to demonstrate how cooperation between the European and Chinese teams is leading to important results.

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:

Assocam Scuola Camerana – Automation Technique  –  Berriola –  Gemamex Motion co  –  Gruppo FitOsai Pamoco spa – Promax

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.

Complete multi-axis control solution

Human machine interface, servo drives, controllers and servomotors: with the aid of our affiliate Trio, Estun Industrial Technology Europe is a complete partner offering everything you need to create complete solutions responding to the real needs of mechanical industry.

Numerical control solutions

For example, we can produce a complete servo system capable of high-speed, precise, stable multi-axis control, guaranteeing connectivity and synchronisation of CNC numerical control.

Estun servo motors in the EMJ family are assembled with 17 or 20 bit serial encoders and available in different sizes. They reach 5000 RPM and support 3 times peak torque.

Estun servo drives in the Pronet Plus Ethercat family represent an efficient, dependable axis control solution. They achieve advanced performance even in environments with low rigidity. These servo drives feature low frequency vibration suppression and real-time auto-tuning of inertia.

Capable to manage up to 32 axes, the TRIO MC4N controller guarantees optimised performance in terms of reactivity and precision while permitting customisation.

Connectivity for the IoT

To permit use in interconnected systems such as the IoT, both servo drives in the PROnet Plus and TRIO MC4N controllers offer EtherCAT connectivity.

The system can use OPC UA  protocol for data encrypted communication among various different platforms and levels, guaranteeing conformity with Cyber Security standards.

Top level sales and development for Motion Control and servo drives

Estun Industrial Technology’s new European branch has been in operation in Milan since the end of 2017.

The new opening marks a milestone in the group’s strategy of international expansion, not only establishing a hub for selling its products in Europe but promoting R&D in line with the highest European standards.

Main focus: Motion control, servo drives and the Industrial Internet of Things

The new branch will be primarily concerned with the range of motion control and alternating current servo drive solutions: the core of the company’s product range and the basis for the group’s future development, which will extend to the fields of robotics and intelligent systems.

The European research and development team will include top talents for creation of a top-level pole and will also be focus on communication protocols and technologies for the promotion of interconnection and the development of the IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things).

An international network

The new branch was opened to offer better, faster service to local customers and help the group to expand in Europe.

All this falls under the group’s new plan for international expansion, which has included opening of a branch in Italy and 4 other branches in the United Kingdom, the USA, Turkey and India.

These new branch offices and over 50 agencies in Europe, Asia, the Americas and Oceania represent the foundations of a network allowing Estun products to be appreciated in more than 60 countries – a steadily growing number.
