Servomotors typically come inside of a case, like this MDD servo motor. The black case is what is called a frame in servo speak but there are servo motors that don’t come inside of these protective shells. They’re called frameless servos. We service both framed servos, like the MDD, and frameless servos that you’ll find in other types of scenarios.
Where will you find frameless servomotors? Frameless servos are most commonly used inside of machinery so if you have a unconventional Indramat installation and don’t know where to start, it might be that you have a frameless servo. Give us a call and we can help.
Frameless servos vary a great deal in both what types of jobs they do and what features they have—which also means that the parts can vary quite a bit too. Rexroth still makes frameless servos and they come in a wide variety of sizes, appropriate for just about any job. Rexroth also still provides support for legacy models that you’ll find in use today—which means that we can factory repair your frameless servo like we do for framed servos.
Servos that need to be installed inside of machinery are frameless because they can become part of the machine. CNC machines are a common place you’ll find frameless servos. It’s also to cut down on wasting space inside of machines as well as increase the cooling abilities inside of the machine. If a machine that gets very hot uses a regular servo, it might require a more robust servo that can take the heat instead of a less robust frameless motor.
If you have trouble with your servos inside of your machines and don’t know where to start, give us a call and we’ll walk you through the process of identifying your servo and getting the repair service you need.
