The ideal automation component

Driven by an entirely newly developed torque motor, the SCHMIDT® TorquePress 520 is the perfect press component for quick and high-precision applications.
The new drive technology offers high press force capacity and at the same time low mass moments of inertia that considerably increase the precision of press force and positioning.
In automation solutions the quality and the efficiency can thus be considerably improved.

Innovative drive

High dynamic, low moment of inertia
In comparison to high ratio servomotors and gear motors the torque motors have a much lower moment of inertia and thus a high dynamic. The start-up time from zero to working speed is only about 100 ms.

Constantly high torque
Due to the high-pole design of the torque motor the maximum torque is already reached at a low speed.

Constant high speed
The speed consistancy is improved by a factor of about 10 compared to conventional drives which results in higher machine precision.

Easy integration

Compact and space-saving
Due to the flange size of only 160 mm and a total length of 1100 mm the SCHMIDT® TorquePress 520 allows the space-saving integration into automation systems and can be integrated with other automation components.

Fully integrated process data acquisition
The force and displacement measurement via an absolute measuring system takes place directly on the ram with a resolution of 0.1 µm. By consequently avoiding gears and other mechanical transmission components a nearly backlash-free construction is possible which in combination with the low inertia, satisfies the highest precision requirements.

Modular interface
The exchange of data via higher level control becomes more flexible and easier to realize. The user is free to choose: either to select predefined displacement profiles, or to control fully and flexibly the displacement positions, speed and dwell time by higher level control.
