Chicago, IL – GE Fanuc Intelligent Platforms announced the availability of two new Large Spindle Motors with 150kW (3000RPM) and 200kW (2000RPM) rated output. The new high power spindle offerings are based on the successful AiS servo motor design and features; synchronous internal permanent magnet construction, high-resolution encoder feedback, standard amplifiers and legendary GE Fanuc reliability.
These new motors are perfect in the retrofit of large CNC machines that used DC or large induction motors and industries such as Oil & Gas or Shipbuilding where large parts require high spindle power. GE Fanuc will be displaying the line-up of large spindles at IMTS 2008, Booth A-8418, along with our impressive array of CNC, servos and amplifiers.
The new motors feature high power, compact size, standard components and synchronous internal permanent magnet design. The use of tandem control allows the motors to be operated on multiple smaller amplifiers that regenerate power back to line, this capability saves significant electrical energy costs and the use of standard amplifiers make components readily available.
