High-performance Simotics DP roller table motor for extreme conditions

Hannover Messe 2017, Hall 9, Booth D35

(PresseBox) (München, ) .
- Approximately 25 percent power/torque increase compared to previous series
- Good vibration and shock resistance
- Robust, torsion-resistant enclosure copes with harsh ambient conditions

The new Simotics DP roller table motors achieve outstanding power density coupled with a significant power/torque increase of around 25 percent compared to the previous series. The torsionally resistant ring rib enclosure and bearing plates are made of spheroidal graphite cast iron (GGG) and are designed for use under the harshest of mechanical ambient conditions. Together with their higher vibration and shock resistance of up to 3M6 in compliance with EN 60721-3-3, Simotics DP roller table motors are ideal for use in steel mills, in particular for rolling, reversing and transporting red-hot metal blanks under the highest levels of mechanical stress and extreme environmental influences such as scale, dust and water.

The standard versions of the Simotics DP roller table motors are classified in compliance with protection rating IP66. They can optionally be fitted with an additional "special sealing system – corrosion protection" to withstand exceptionally tough environmental conditions. Their vibration and shock resistance is tested and confirmed in exhaustive test lab trials.

The series is based on the new motor platform 1LE1 and is designed to supplement the existing Simotics DP steel mill motors in sizes 112M-200L, making this a one-stop solution for all kinds of transport applications in the metalworking industry. This not only reduces any associated risks but also makes for more efficient project engineering.

Simotics DP roller table motors are ideally suited for operation in conjunction with the SINAMICS S120 converter. Operation of this combined system has been exhaustively laboratory tested.
