Siemens Industry Inc, Norcross, Ga, announced a new service for its line of 1FK7 servomotors. Using a configurable options menu to build exactly the motor required, customers can now place an order for any Siemens 1FK7 servomotor and have it drop-shipped in three weeks. 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, servomotors in the 1FK7 family can be configured to 110,700 possible designs. However, 1FK7 geared motor options are not included in this program, and Siemens is making this service available to customers in the U.S. market only.
According to Arun Jain, general manager, Siemens Motion Control Business, Siemens chose the 1FK7 family because it has a wide user base for motion control applications. Siemens has devised and implemented an entirely new protocol for motor manufacturing and production at our factories.
