B&R Acopos P3 servo drive providing more compact control cabinet design

B&R’s Acopos P3 servo drive is now also available with a feed-through heat sink or cold plate cooling. The new cooling solutions dissipate up to 60% of generated heat outside of the control cabinet. This makes it possible to use much more compact cabinets since fans and air conditioners can be reduced or eliminated entirely. Operation and maintenance costs are reduced.

These new Acopos P3 cooling solutions are suitable for a large number of axes in all power ranges. With the elimination of fans and air conditioners that bring outside air into the control cabinet, substantially less dust gets sucked in along with it. It significantly reduces the need to stop the entire machine for maintenance tasks like replacing air filters. Machine availability goes up.

Acopos P3 reduces the use of fans and ac in a control cabinet

With feed-through cooling, push-through heat sinks conduct up to 60% of dissipated heat directly to the air outside of the control cabinet. Therefore, costly cooling of the control cabinet itself is not necessary. The heat sink offers IP64 protection and is compliant with standards EN 60529 and UL 50 Type 12. The fan installed in the push-through heat sink offers IP54 protection.

Acopos P3 reduces costs

Cold plate cooling uses a water-cooled plate to dissipate virtually all heat generated by devices via the coolant. As a result, control cabinets need far fewer fans and climate control units, reducing costs. In addition, cold plate mounting works in conjunction with a machine’s own cooling circuit.

 

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia.is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
