Siemens' Generation II Simotics 1FK7 servomotors are field-replaceable 24-bit encoders in 10 styles as well as three inertia versions and seven shaft heights. Courtesy: SiemensSiemens' Generation II Simotics 1FK7 servomotors are configured to suit a wide variety of applications. The motors feature seven shaft heights, Quick-Connect power connector and high-accuracy 20- and 24-bit field replaceable encoders in 10 styles, all combined with a four-week lead time. 

The Generation II servomotor offers three inertia versions — standard, high-dynamic for rapid acceleration jobs, and high-inertia for smooth running. These motors are designed for operation without external cooling and the heat is dissipated through the motor surface. With 10 styles of field-replaceable encoders, the 1FK7 Generation II servomotors provide easy maintenance in the field, with reduced downtime and operating cost savings. Further, a 10% improvement in continuous (S-1) power is achieved since the encoders are mechanically and thermally decoupled from the motor. The mechanical decoupling also means the encoder is more resistant to vibration conditions on the machine. In addition, there is no need for battery back-up on the absolute encoders. 

Generation II Simotics 1FK7 servomotors provide users with 3x overload, 2.5 percent torque ripple, cross profiling for easier mounting, Siemens Drive-Cliq interface for easier field commissioning and unit recognition with the Siemens Sinamics S120 drive family, plain shaft or keyway design, three IP ratings and are supplied with or without holding brake.

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
