In a ServoDisc motor. in both incremental motion and continuous speed applications. What separates the ServoDisc motor from conventional DC servos is its ironless disc armature. In addition to performance advantages. 1) The armature consists of slotted steel laminations wound with coils of wire which interact with the magnetic field to produce torque. the permanent magnets are mounted on the motor shell creating a radial magnetic field. Torque is created when the current flowing radially through the copper conductors interacts directly with the field of the permanent magnets (Fig. In a conventional slot-wound servomotor. The ironless ServoDisc armature has absolutely no cogging at any speed of operation. 3). (Fig. separated only by the thickness of the disc armature . (Fig. This force rotates the shaft. This produces a torque perpendicular to both the magnetic field and the current (the left-hand rule). The large number of commutations possible with Kollmorgen’s unique flat armature produce dramatically smoother torque output. it is constructed from several layers of copper conductors in a unique flat-disc configuration. It’s the technology found in ServoDisc motors from Kollmorgen. Unique ironless design S N S N ROTATION Ironcore Motor ServoDisc Motor A conventional ironcore motor uses a radial design with magnets placed concentrically around the shaft in such a way as to produce a radial magnetic field.a very clean and effective design approach. A ServoDisc motor uses entirely different physical construction. which is not attainable with conventional ironcore motor designs. ServoDisc motors have a unique compact shape that can be an attractive alternative when solving tight packaging problems. laminated ironcore wound with coils of wire. 1).

As we shall see. ServoDisc motors accelerate up to 10 times faster than conventional servo motors. this difference enables ServoDisc motors to deliver a level of performance. As the motor rotates a commutator automatically maintains the correct current flow. Not only are the armature designs completely different. Instead. Motors of this type are typically long. parallel to the shaft. perpendicular to the shaft (Fig. These different approaches produce dramatically different motors (Fig. In a ServoDisc motor. the iron core of the armature is needed to contain and focus the lines of magnetic flux. so is the shape and internal construction. This leads to a very small air gap be tween the magnets. there is an important motor technology which you should know about.A new dimension in performance If you are involved with high performance servomotor applications. This construction approach is much more efficient than the radial design of conventional ironcore motors and eliminates the heavy iron armature and the electrical losses associated with it. the armature is constructed from a heavy. parallel to the shaft. Because the magnet pairs are so far apart. . thin and heavy. the armature has no iron. The motor is designed with the magnetic field aligned axially. In a conventional servo. 2). 2) The conductors in the arma- ture have a current flow which is perpendlcular to the magnetic field (radial to the shaft). Outdistances other DC servos The iron-free ServoDisc armature provides some significant performance advantages for motion control applications. This configuration is a very efficient way of producing torque.

ServoDisc motors solidly outperform conventional motors. The thin. . low-inertia armature design leads to exceptional torque-to-inertia ratios. This means shorter cycle times.Faster acceleration the entire move can be performed in less than 10 milliseconds. 4).0 Conventional Ironcore Motor ServoDisc 50 High Performance Ironcore Motor Conventional Ironcore Motor 500 0 0 50 100 150 Torque (oz-in) (7A) 50 100 150 Torque (oz-in) (7A) 10 Electrical Time Constant Torque-Speed Curves Peak Torque Capability A very low electrical time constant results in torque much sooner than with conventional wire-wound motors.
