Kollmorgen AKMA servo motor designed to meet demands of heavy-washdown applications.

Kollmorgen has launched its AKMA servo motor built for medium- to heavy-washdown applications. The motor employs a hardened anodized aluminum surface that offers strong resistance to chemicals across a wide pH range. It is also more scratch resistant and will not flake like a painted motor, making suited for use above the food line. The AKMA carries a IP69k for wet and rugged environments. Its stainless steel shaft meets functional safety requirements, while its “one-piece” rounded housing structure eliminates the need for a seal between the flange and housing to prevent puddling and water ingress. The AKMA motor also features a vented design to equalize pressure inside and outside for increased OEE and motor durability.
