Announcing MOTIONEERING® Application Engine 6.3.0 – Kollmorgen's latest release of our premier motion sizing and selection software. This release features our new KBM™ Series Frameless Kit brushless motors with our AKD™ servo drive family, complementing our existing rotary and linear actuation systems. Sizing frameless motors and drive systems has never been easier. Using a mechanism project concept for collecting and saving multiple axes of load information, MOTIONEERING® can automatically calculate application results and compare against a database catalog of systems – recommending to our customers the most optimized set of Kollmorgen system solutions available.

The engine has the flexibility to sum the effects of multiple axes of motion for power supply and shunt regeneration sizing (rotary applications only). Versatile units-of-measure selection options for mechanism and motion profile data-entry, with the ability to convert data into other available units, makes this a convenient international tool. A user-friendly Help file teaches program functions and algorithms used to provide results.
