Portescap, a Danaher Motion Company, has received the Grade A Supplier Award from Swiss-based SSM, a leading international provider of high performance textile machinery for yarn processing and winding. The award is given by SSM to its vendor-partners who fulfill set guidelines and deliver high quality and performance products, along with exceptional overall value, service, and on-time delivery.
“Portescap is truly delighted to be recognized by SSM with their Grade A Supplier Award. We have developed a strong partnership with SSM over the course of many years, striving to provide exceptional service and product performance to help them become a leader in their industry,” Says Dr. Norbert Veignat, Portescap’s Managing Director for Europe. “SSM has taken full advantage of Portescap’s TurboDisc technologies in textile machinery applications where acceleration is absolutely critical, by driving the Portescap stepper in closed loop mode,” he says.
As one of SSM’s Top 10 suppliers, Portescap has provided thousands of motors per year to SSM. The TurboDisc Disc Stepper delivers 60% less motor inertia than other hybrid step motors to deliver extremely high acceleration rates of 171K rad/s2 for SSM’s yarn processing and winding machine. The TurboDisc also excels in other applications including medical analyzers, electronic assembly head positioning and instrumentation.
