SPS IPC Drives – the Italian trade fair dedicated to the world of automation returns to Parma from 28-30 May. Industry 4.0, digital transformation, flexibility, production efficiency and environmental sustainability are some of the challenging issues for tomorrow's industry, these will be the main themes during the event.
For the occasion, the Lafert Group will exhibit its extensive range of Brushless Servomotors but also a new series of compact motors and the second generation of its IE4/IE5 permanent magnet synchronous motors with integrated drive. “A vast product range that can fulfil all the various types of applications due to specific range, size and power solutions is available. In addition a host of options are also available, including extensive customisation.” “Furthermore”, comments the Sales Manager of BU-Industrial Automation, Stefano Dessanti, “certain sizes that are most on demand in the market will be on display, together with more niche sizes that have a significant impact in terms of product customisation due to the peculiarity of the application, a very strong characteristic of Lafert”.
“Amidst the novelties,” continues the Sales Manager, “there will be a few options for the range of servomotors, such as the single cable/ connector version, reinforced brakes, different cooling solutions, special bearings and even material handling solutions. Furthermore, visitors will have the opportunity to discover some of the first solutions derived from the synergy with Sumitomo Drive Technologies. The automation sector, in fact, is growing fast and application expertise, customisation and energy efficiency are increasingly requested. In particular, the following markets are currently showing an interesting development: Robotic, Material Handling, Textile and Mould Injection. Lastly,” continues Dessanti, “the new HPI 71 motor – now completely redesigned and upgraded – will be presented for the first time in Italy, which, in addition to having an elegant and compact design and the very latest updated control electronics, even make it possible to customise the colour of some mechanical components, allowing a seamless integration when applying the motor to the machine.”
“In 2018 we started developing several important projects, some of which are still in progress, others at an advanced stage with series production launched, and others in the final phase of product validation. Lafert's strategic growth path is progressing successfully and,” concludes the Sales Manager, “constantly towards consolidating the company's position as a world leader in the electric motor sector”.
