Developed for a demanding environment, the compact LinMot SSC linear motors are made of stainless steel EN 1.4404/AISI 316.
In the construction of this motor family, the focus is on hygienic design. In order to prevent the accumulation of dirt, the motors are designed without unnecessary edges, corners, holes and screw connections.
The windings of the linear motors are completely encapsulated with epoxy resin, which protects the copper filling and also the stator package from condensation or corrosion. With this outstanding tightness, they therefore meet the IP69K protection class according to DIN EN 60529. Specially developed plastic bearings ensure simplified cleaning and a lot of time saving in wash-down applications. Furthermore, the drives are perfectly designed for “in-place” cleaning processes such as CIP and SIP.
For temperature monitoring, all linear motors are equipped with sensors that transmit the data to the drive. The data can be evaluated in the higher-level controller in such a way that the motor can be kept within a constant temperature range depending on the processing (e.g. food such as fish). As an option, LinMot offers integrated water cooling for low surface temperatures for some motor types, which leads to higher performance and at the same time reduces germ formation.
Developed for a demanding environment
LinMot stainless steel linear motors offer hygiene at the highest level. They enable use in machines and systems for processing food or in the pharmaceutical industry. There they can easily cope with extremely rough or corrosive environments and can be cleaned without hesitation using all the agents customary in the industry.
