Sanyo Denki's engineering product design for sustainable future

In today’s world, manufacturers are under increasing pressure to minimize their environmental impact while maintaining productivity and efficiency.  Our whitepaper: “Building a Low-Carbon Society: Energy- and resource-saving initiatives” explores a new generation of industrial automation technology that achieves both. This blog post dives into the design features of SANYO DENKI’s SANMOTION G servo motor and amplifier, showcasing how they contribute to a greener future for manufacturers through a combination of cutting-edge engineering and environmental responsibility.

Designed With Your Environmental Goals In Mind: SANMOTION G Servo System

The design of the SANMOTION G servo motor and amplifier showcases a commitment to environmental responsibility. These products target sustainability throughout their lifecycle, demonstrably reducing environmental impact.

A core principle is energy efficiency. The servo motor achieves this through a combination of innovative design and material selection. By optimizing the electromagnetic field and using low-loss materials, power loss is minimized, leading to up to 9% higher efficiency. Additionally, the servo amplifier maximizes output current by up to 5% using a power semiconductor device with low heat generation. And lower-consumption components are used, resulting in a total power reduction of 22%.

The concept of resource conservation is also central to the design. The servo motor is demonstrably lighter and more compact than previous models, achieving the same performance with less material. Over and above that, batteryless encoders reduce industrial waste associated with battery backup and lower product maintenance costs for manufacturers.

Beyond efficiency and resource reduction, the focus extends to smart energy management. The servo amplifier features built-in power consumption monitoring by calculating the data collected from sensors, enabling manufacturers to identify areas for overall power reduction associated with their machines and optimize electricity use throughout their factories.

The power regeneration device captures the energy typically wasted during deceleration and converts it back into usable electricity. This innovation minimizes environmental impact by reducing overall energy consumption and maximizing resource utilization.
