After decades of worldwide presence in the machine tool industry with leading-edge torque motors, Etel is presenting the new TMB+ motor. This motor is an evolution of the renowned TMB torque motor that provides a combination of increased performance and new features while maintaining the interfaces of existing motors. According to the company, the torque density of the new version is increased by up to 20 percent while keeping the same footprint and reducing the power losses by up to 30 percent. The speed range is also said to be significantly extended. The new motor is claimed to enable enhanced machine performance and allow new processes to be integrated into existing machines without any design change efforts. With its outstanding performance level, the new development is seen as giving more applications access to direct drive technology while keeping quality and reliability at their highest level and reducing the cost of ownership.
