The Nuremberg-based automation and drive specialist Baumüller has developed a new servo motor series for aggressive environments and for industries with very high demands on hygiene, cleanliness, and corrosion protection. The new HYG1 offers optimum hygienic properties with a high power density while simultaneously eliminating the need for space-consuming protective enclosures.
Machines in food processing, beverage filling, and the pharmaceutical and packaging industries must be quick and easy to clean. At the same time, bacterial colonies must never grow as a result of accumulated dirt or cleaning agents. Baumüller meets this requirement with the HYG1. Classified under the IP69K protection class, it is quick and easy to clean, thereby minimizing downtimes.
The compact servo motor has a round stainless steel housing and can be equipped with a single-cable solution and Hiperface DSL encoders without further plug connections, thus requiring very little wiring. All rough edges were eliminated in the HYG1 in order to meet the highest demands on hygiene and durability, even in aggressive environments. The corrugated design of the servo motor maximizes the surface area and therefore the self-cooling capacity of the motor. This makes the power density of the HYG1 especially high in a small installation space.
The HYG1 motor series is currently available in size 36 and in three different lengths with an output of up to 1160 W and a speed of 1000 to 4000 rpm.
