Moog and Salvagnini: A Decentralized Control Architecture Adapted to Metalworking Applications

Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A E MOG.B), a leading provider of high-performance drive technology solutions, and Salvagnini, also a leader in innovative solutions for the automation of metalworking applications, have jointly developed an 8-axis Cartesian handling robot for automatic guidance and sorting of punched or sheared parts designed and developed in machining centers.

Many metal processing companies face a variety of challenges, including high batch variability, smaller and diversified batches with special applications, and customer demands for shorter lead times and quality guarantees. Although the plant's systems and production lines are already designed to be flexible enough, current requirements often contradict this. Another option to meet customers' fast and diverse production needs is the Salvagnini 8-axis Cartesian manipulator. It fits into the existing concept of the room, fulfills various tasks and consumes less energy than comparable solutions on the market.
As Moog offers electric, hydraulic and hybrid solutions for machine development, Moog and Salvagnini were able to take a technology neutral approach. Moog engineers evaluated a range of technologies and selected the most appropriate solution for Salvagnini Cartesian Manipulator and Metalworking customers.

The Moog development team integrated its electromechanical solutions into the design of the Salvagnini robot so that the system is able to link different processes, including the transportation of the current workpiece from one station to another. To develop the multi-axis solution, Salvagnini engineers chose a DE2020 power control module, a DI2020 motor with integrated electronics, a DR2020 decentralized single-axis drive and HD/FAS H servo motors from Moog.

"In the arrangement of complex systems, it is difficult and not always possible to find space for a switchboard. "It is therefore very important to reduce the volume of the control box," explains Stefano Bizzotto, motion control manager at Salvagnini. “Ideally, the control box should disappear or be completely integrated into the floor plan of the machine. That's why we decided on decentralized drives and motors with integrated electronics."
By choosing electromechanical technology, we were able to design integrated plug-and-play systems that can communicate perfectly even with equipment from other manufacturers," adds Massimo Daziale, Moog's sales manager. “Simplified installation allowed for faster service. Other benefits include the smaller dimensions and lower weight of the machine's moving parts, resulting in greater acceleration and speed, as well as the ability to integrate new functions in the same space."

Together, Moog and Salvagnini upgrade existing machines to replace existing components or integrate new components. Modernizations are considered necessary because improving technological standards increases production efficiency while reducing operating costs. The intensive design and construction collaboration between the development teams of both companies is leading machine tool users to the next generation of increasingly connected systems focused on sustainability and Industry 4.0 readiness.

Moog is able to design the most appropriate combination of technologies and solutions to meet individual customer needs in these areas.

MOOG linear motors

Available in a variety of configurations, Moog linear motors provide dynamic and precise linear motion positioning for robotics, manufacturing automation, processing, packaging, test and simulation, and other industrial applications.

L3S and L3SK linear motors

Moog's low-profile L3S air-cooled and liquid-cooled L3SK linear motors are designed for highly dynamic applications. L3S and L3SK motors are three-phase synchronous iron-core linear motors supplied as active parts (built-in motors). The laminates and the three-phase winding placed in their grooves form a ferromagnetic bundle, which in turn forms the primary part. This primary element is excited by permanent magnets in the secondary space, placed in a standard, static field and used as a magnetic path.

Both the L3S series engines and its liquid-cooled L3SK variant offer some of the widest power ranges in the industry. Standard models provide continuous force ratings ranging from 150 to 7,500 N for the L3S series and 300 to 12,000 N for the L3SK series when water is used as coolant. In addition, the air-cooled L3S series can be loaded with significantly higher forces and currents than those generated at nominal speeds. In comparison, the liquid-cooled L3SK series has almost twice the power and output of its air-cooled counterpart (L3S) with the same dimensions. Another advantage of the L3SK series is that they can work at higher ambient temperatures.

The modular design of two lines of linear motors supports a large number of options. In addition, Moog can offer fully customized solutions including:

  • Winding and special insulation variants for systems designed for...
  • various force constants (from approx. 40 to 1000 N/A)
  • different intermediate circuit voltages (140 V, 330 V, 560 V, 700 V DC)
  • Increased IP classes
  • the air-cooled linear motor with an increased IP class is the L7S model
  • the liquid-cooled counterpart is the L7SK.
  • The position of the output cables can be changed*

Characteristics:

  • Designed for highly dynamic applications
  • High Force Overload Capability (L3S)
  • High values of continuous force (L3SK)
  • Quality production
  • High assembly accuracy
  • Long service life and high operational reliability

Advantages:

  • High positioning accuracy
  • Highly customizable
  • High power density
  • Various packaging options are available

LNS Linearmotoren

Moog LNS series ironless flat linear motors are designed for highly dynamic applications. The LNS series features synchronous linear motors that are supplied in the form of active parts (built-in motors). Due to the use of non-ferromagnetic material, the primary part of the motor is suitably light and highly efficient, with essentially no drag force (no gearing) and no pulsation of attractive forces.
Moog LNS motors provide sustained rated forces ranging from 16 to 225 N. In terms of electromagnetism, the LNS series is designed for an overload capacity of approximately five times the rated force. Thanks to this, they can be loaded with significantly higher forces and currents than those generated at nominal speeds.

The modular design of the LNS iron-free flat linear motor supports a large number of options. In addition, Moog can offer fully customized solutions. We offer customer-specific winding systems designed for different power constants (from approx. 10 to 100 N/A), as well as winding systems and insulation variants for different intermediate circuit voltages (140 V, 330 V, 560 V DC).

Characteristics:

  • No gearing
  • Designed for highly dynamic applications
  • High power overload capability
  • Reduced weight
  • Quality production

Advantages:

  • Flat design and compact dimensions
  • High positioning accuracy
  • Compensation of attractive forces
  • Various packaging options are available

Moog products ensure a successful Mars Rover landing

Moog Inc. (NYSE: MOG.A and MOG.B) today announced that the company's space products have played a critical role in NASA's successful Perseverance Rover landing on Mars. Perseverance is NASA's latest mission to explore Mars and builds on the success of the 2012 Mars Curiosity Rover mission. The Moog team designed, built and tested several components necessary for the mission. During the final descent, the Moog throttle assemblies controlled the inlet spacecraft's engines. The spacecraft entered the atmosphere at 12,500 miles per hour, stabilizing and lowering the level of the Perseverance Rover until it successfully touched Lake Crater at approximately 4:00 p.m. ET today.

Moog also played a key role in launching the Rover on the Red Planet. The mission fired from Cape Canaveral, Florida, on July 30, 2020. Moog propulsion took the launch vehicle out of Earth's atmosphere. In addition, Moog rocket engines were used to steer a 350 million-mile spacecraft carrying the Perseverance Rover, ensuring it stayed on course at 55,000 miles per hour. With Rover now safe on the Red Planet, Moog technology will continue to support the mission. Moog valves and filters will help keep the Rover drill clean when digging samples during one Mars, which is 687 days on Earth.

"I am proud of the work that our talented and dedicated team members have put into this project to ensure its success. Their ingenuity and commitment drive innovation and the continued success of Moog, our local community, and exploring worlds beyond our own, ”said Maureen Athoe, president of Moog’s Space and Defense. Steve Witkowski, market manager for space electronics, added: “From the engineers who create the individual hardware, to our technicians integrating the individual components into a larger system, it is truly a mission in a mission. It's unbelievable to think that your work is an important element in exploring another planet.

"Mars 2020 is another major step forward in space exploration and another significant success in Moog's Space and Defense," added Steve McDonald, manager of propulsion engineering. "Seeing how our hardware successfully fulfills such an important mission is both inspiring and fulfilling."
