Indramat’s MAC family of servo motors includes a wide range of sizes, torque capacities, and brake configurations. It has a number of options that make it suitable for a range of applications, from industrial textiles and sheet metal operations to printing presses and packaging machines. They’re suited to multi-axis robotics and transfer facilities, as well. MAC servo motors can be mounted in any orientation, a feature which increases the flexibility of this series.
MAC servos are used with TDM, KDS and DSC drive controllers. The completely closed housing means you can use these motors in harsh environments, and they do not require maintenance, since they’re brushless and have lifetime lubricated bearings. Thermo switches are integrated into the motor windings and stator housing, so heat is dissipated and overheating is rare.
The cumulative effect of all these features and the high output of the MAC series is long, strong service with little to no interaction between the servo and the human beings on the team.
When your MAC servo finally needs help, you’ll probably find that no one on the floor remembers when the MAC was installed. Some of them think you’re talking about a Mac. Few have ever even seen this servo. There’ll be a lot of helpless staring and some blustering, but the truth is, you need lifting hooks and a crane even to lift most of these babies, and you should have some experience before you try troubleshooting.
Don’t take a chance on DIY with MAC motors. Don’t figure your local repair shop can do the job. Factory repair is the only sensible option for these motors. Call us as soon as you realize you have a problem. You’ll save time and money by doing it right in the first place.
