Siemens' 1PH8 motors for belt-driven and coupled machine tool spindles
Siemens has unveiled its 1PH8 range of motors for belt-driven and coupled machine tool spindles. The motors have been designed as main drives and are available as asynchronous and synchronous versions. The 1PH8 motors feature dynamic response, smooth running properties and low vibration levels. This means that machine tool spindles can be operated with greater precision, improving workpiece quality and productivity. The motors are available as main drives with power outputs ranging from 2.8 kW to 1,340 kW. Different bearing designs extend the range of possible applications.
