Direct drives

IDAM – INA Drives and Mechatronics

In order to combine the performance of INA rotary table bearings with the capacity of direct drives INA provides matched drive solutions with its subsidiary IDAM INA – Drives & Mechatronics. This company will act as the competence center for direct drive technology and mechatronics for the Schaeffler Group Industrial.

IDAM’s portfolio includes linear and rotary AC synchronous motors and reluctance motors (e.g. two-coordinate drives in a single plane with air bearings) covering a wide range of dimensions and performance as well as all of the required control assemblies necessary to operate them, such as servo amplifiers, regulators, power units and compact controls. IDAM also supplies precision XY positioning tables, elevator engine-transmission units and complete system solutions. INA - Drives & Mechatronics has comprehensive experience in machine tools and special machine design and construction, automation technology, electronics manufacturing, metrology and medical systems, optical equipment and elevators.


RE series

IDAM – INA Drives and Mechatronics offers individual direct drive solutions with excellent performance. The torque motors RE (rotor external)-series is prestinated for grinding machines, milling machines, machining centers, HSC-machines, tool changer, cutter heads, pivot axis, circular tables.

The advantages of this series are: high power density at least envelope by coordinated single components, compact design, high dynamic response and rigidity, high efficient cooling system, optimum values achieved for synchronous operation, requires no maintenance, customized speed (rpm) and windings. This drive is compatible with all conventional controllers and control units available on the market.
