Kollmorgen AKMH stainless steel servo motor for food safety & hygiene requirements

The AKMH servo motor and ERD actuator have been designed to meet the standards for IP69K, EHEDG, USDA and 3A, and built with FDA approved, food grade materials. The careful elimination of flat surfaces, gap-lines and crevices prevents the build-up of foreign materials, bacteria and other pathogens.

The motor and actuator can endure multiple daily washdowns with high pressure, high temperature and caustic chemicals. Most importantly, the robust design eliminates the need to additionally protect the motor from harsh cleaning regimes, which reduces cleaning times without compromising on performance and installation space. 

The AKMH motor comes in 19 standard sizes, with multiple standard winding and feedback options. Features include:

  • IP69K protection class / designed to meet USDA, 3A, NSF hygiene standards
  • 19 standard motor frame/ stack length combinations
  • Multiple standard windings designed to optimize the performance of your machine
  • Continuous torques to 21Nm, peak torques to 66Nm
  • Rated speeds to 8000rpm
  • Multiple feedback options from incremental to multi-turn absolute
  • Single hybrid cable technology with lengths up to 15m designed to meet HFPA 79
  • Holding brake option
  • Face and flange mounts available in IEC and NEMA standards

The ERD stainless steel hygienic actuator combines an AKMH motor with a high quality fully washdown, ballscrew driven linear actuator. Key features include:

  • IP69K protection class / designed to meet USDA, 3A, NSF hygiene standards
  • Feed force to 20,000N
  • Stroke lengths to 600mm
  • Feed speeds to 1.4m/s
  • In-line or parallel motor configurations
