Siemens is accelerating its manufacturing line for its Simotics 1FK7 servomotors with a configurable menu that will allow customers to design their motor to their specifications. Courtesy: SiemensSiemens is attempting to manufacture and deliver its Simotics 1FK7 servomotors in shortened time. Using a configurable options menu to exactly build the motor required, customers can now place an order for any first generation 1FK7 servomotor and have it drop-shipped in three weeks. This new service applies to over 100,000 possible configurations. All compact (CT) and high-dynamic (HD) servomotors in the 1FK7 family are included.

With a total of 6,150 option pairings and 18 color choices, Simotics servomotors in the 1FK7 family can be configured to 110,700 possible designs. Options include stall torque and RPM rating, encoder style and bit resolution, holding brake functionality, shaft style, IP rating, ac line supply voltage and electronic nameplate recognition via Drive-Cliq. 1FK7 geared motor options and second generation 1FK7 servomotors are not included in this program.

Siemens is making this service available to customers in the U.S. market. With the Simotion motion controller and the Sinamics S drive system stocked in the United States, Siemens is now able to supply complete motion control systems in three weeks lead time.
