Hygienic and Customizable Drive Solutions for Packaging Systems
Dunkermotoren, a brand of AMETEK, offers individually configurable drive solutions for all areas of primary, secondary, and transport packaging systems. With a focus on hygiene and cleanability, the drive technology manufacturer provides both rotary brushless DC motors and highly precise linear motors with special stainless steel housings. This material choice allows for easy and thorough cleaning due to its smooth surfaces. Additionally, stainless steel is extremely corrosion-resistant and provides no surface for bacteria and fungi to attack. Therefore, Dunkermotoren’s drive solutions meet the high requirements of the food industry.
The SL 38 STL (Stainless Steel) linear motor series from Dunkermotoren is exceptionally outstanding. With an acceleration of over 200 m/sÂ², this stainless steel solution can maximize the throughput of packaging, filling, and transfer systems in the food industry. It operates with extreme precision and provides reliable protection against the ingress of splashing water during equipment cleaning, thanks to its special fastenings and hygiene seals. The stainless steel housing meets protection classes up to IP69K.
The intelligent BLDC motors from Dunkermotoren offer unparalleled flexibility, allowing for seamless transitions between different product and packaging formats during operation. With the Motor Control Platform (MCP), users can easily program customized motion profiles and parameters in the C programming language. These motors are fully integrated into the housing and can communicate with the higher-level control system via CANopen or Ethernet interfaces such as EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, and PROFINET.
The complete solution offered by Dunkermotoren includes a motor, motor electronics, gearbox, encoder, and brake, all of which can be assembled in a seamless stainless steel housing. This configuration not only meets the hygiene requirements of the food industry, but also fulfills the design requirements for primary packaging.
The application of Dunkermotoren’s linear motors in packaging and filling systems can significantly reduce manufacturing costs. With their high speed and precision positioning, these motors enable maximum throughput in the packaging process. This ultimately leads to lower unit costs and competitive prices. Additionally, the high speed of the systems reduces the turnaround time of fresh food, allowing for faster delivery to supermarkets and discount stores. As a result, customers benefit from extended shelf life and exceptional freshness of the products.
By utilizing intelligent BLDC motors with integrated motor electronics, the smart services offered by the IIoT brand nexofox can be accessed. These services provide features such as real-time monitoring and alert management to optimize motor operation and minimize wear and tear. The analysis of operational data enables early detection of possible maintenance needs, preventing machine failures that could potentially result in the destruction of entire batches.
With decades of experience and a continuous stream of new projects in the food processing and packaging industry, Dunkermotoren and nexofox provide their customers with tried and tested comprehensive solutions. Their drive solutions are always up-to-date, ensuring that the systems are equipped to handle any challenges – both now and in the future.
