Company focus Bühler Motor to introduce bMotion at SPS IPC Drives 2018
The company will be demonstrating its latest innovation, bMotion at the upcoming automation exhibition. Through this platform, Bühler Motor aims to provide visitors with an insight into its range of specialised solutions.
Like all major global companies that deal in drive system solutions, Bühler Motor will also be seen exhibiting at this year’s SPS IPC Drives trade show to showcase its most recent cutting-edge solutions for the industry. The three day event that focuses on smart and digital automation innovations is expected to attract approximately 70,000 business visitors from across the globe. These visitors will be keen to source solutions for their automation queries. In such a scenario, the Bühler Motor company will be unveiling its latest solution – bMotion at the show.
bMotion is an innovative platform of DC motors, gear boxes, brakes and encoders. Equipped with numerous predefined variants, the drive platform is highly modular in nature and easy-to-combine. New as well as existing customers can also access pre-validated and market specific combinations that are incorporated within the bMotion product line. The range is also capable of providing superior application support and fixed lead times for series parts, samples, and pre-series parts; this proves beneficial for the customer.
Adding to this, the drive solution is based on the configure-to-order concept which means that the solution can be configured as per the requirements of each customer. This significant advantage leads to reduction in the customer’s development and implementation timing along with the costs. Customisation is also possible with the assistance of the new solutions to develop windings, pinions as well as special shaft length, EMC (Electromagnetic compatibility) suppression and temperature sensors.
The entire product range offers an insight into the many solutions that the customer can opt for depending on his needs. Bühler is capable of offering diverse drives as well as drive combinations for unique market requirements and application-specific needs of the customer. An interesting aspect of this product line is that it saves on cost in applications where access to lifetime of the BLDC (Brushless DC) motor is not required. The solutions cater to multiple sectors such as farming, medical applications, industrial applications in industrialisation, etc.
Digital order management system
Temperature sensors are also provided with the solutions to ensure smooth functioning of the condition monitoring process. This also supports the idea of predictive maintenance. Bühler has also changed over to a digital order management system. Adoption of this digital system enabled efficient and speedy processing of orders, thus creating a production environment that is resourceful. With the help of this new system, lot sizes down to 200 pieces can be handled. By incorporating the bMotion drive platform in the production process, one can ensure full traceability of materials, process values, and motor performance data.
Bühler Motor can be located at hall 1, stand 230 at SPS IPC Drives 2018.
