The Motion Control Business of Atlanta-based Siemens Industry Inc. has introduced its Sinamics servo pump for hydraulic machinery, which the company claims can slash energy costs by up to 50 percent.
The unit is built upon standard components such as the Sinamics S120 drive platform and distributed input/output.
According to Siemens, other advantages of the pump include reduced noise compared to a variable capacity pump or control valve, smaller oil tank volume, reduced dependency on oil temperature and a simpler pump construction with a controlled servo motor.
