Nidec-Shimpo Launches a Lineup of Servo Motor VR Series Reducers for Food Machinery

Nidec-Shimpo Corporation announces that it has launched a lineup of its VR Series reducers for servo motors, for food machinery

VR Series Reducer
Nidec-Shimpo’s Latest VR Series Reducers for Food Machinery

As public awareness of food safety is on increase in recent years amid food poisoning, norovirus, and other incidents, safety is required for food machinery (confectionery and bakery equipment, meat processing machinery, packaging machinery, etc.) and reducers used for them.

With robots and factory automation equipment used in agitation, mixing, crushing, filling, conveying, aligning, and many other food item and drug manufacturing processes, safety is increasingly demanded for the reducers used in those processes.

To meet such market demand, the Company’s latest VR series reducers for food machinery adopt grease of Grade H1 of the NSF, a global standard for lubricant oils for food machinery (Lubricant oils of this grade are allowed to be used in places that may accidentally contact food), and the reducers can be installed in food machinery’s drive sections.

The external dimensions of these recently developed reducers are the same as those of the standard specifications of the existing VR Series reducers, and therefore the new reducers can replace standard ones easily, without changing the equipment side’s design.

With respect to performance, an NSF H1-greade grease for food items is used to lubricate the inside of the reducers, but they can generate a torque of up to 80% of standard models. In addition, with highly rust-resistant stainless output shafts available optionally, the new reducers can work in high-humidity and other environments that require rust-proof food machinery.

Special Announcement: On April 1, 2023, Nidec-Shimpo Corporation will be renamed Nidec Drive Technology Corporation.

Conserving Power and CO2 Emissions with Premium Efficiency Motors

The process of converting electrical energy to mechanical energy is never perfect. As much as we would like to have a 100% efficient motor, it is impossible to build a machine that will take 746 watts of electricity (the equivalent of 1 Hp) and convert it to 1 Hp of mechanical output. It always takes somewhat more than 746 watts to yield 1 Hp’s worth of output.

Motors are continuously being pushed to be more efficient and reduce these losses. Over the years the guiding regulations of motor manufacturing have pushed us to improve efficiencies to new levels to reduce the considerable global power consumption of motors, as they are everywhere. From our factories, utilities and homes and most anywhere you can think of.

How much power consumption aka money are you spending that you do not have to? Take a minute while having your coffee to see if you can save money.
