The DBS Series By Mini Motor: A Great Product Combined With Impeccable Service Creates A Solution That Is Dpminating The Market

Technology, electronics, design, installation and after-sale serrice: total
excellence is the only way to win.
By itself, a product is not enough. And similarly, by itself, the most impeccable customer assistance and after- sale service is not enough.
To stand out in the world of automation and motion control, it is essential not to accept compromises and to excel at every step in the life of a product.The DBS Series – Mini Motor’s flaship  product  line  –  is  one  of  the most   qualified   and   recognised   expressions of this principle on the industrial scene.

This family of brushless servomotors with built-in drive has succeeded in raising  the  bar  of  product  excellence in terms of optimisation, integration and performance, as it offers a set of features which place the DBS series  at  the  rery  top  of  its  market. These include:
• the ability to daisy chain a number of motors using the major communication protocols employed for industrial  purposes:  EtherCAT,  Ethernet/IP,   Powerlink,   Modbus, PROFINET I/O and CANOpen;
• the inclusion of an SSI multiturn absolute encoder at 4096-PPR, which provides  maximum  freedom  to adjust speed and position while maintaining  distance  –  even  when powered down;
• compact,  seamless  integration of all elements – motor, drive and
gear (if installed) – combined into a single  product  of  indisputable  excellence.

With these features, DBS series servomotors are highly rersatile products  that  can  meet  the  automation needs of virtually any manufacturing company. They are easy to install, reduce  the  amount  of  wiring  required and thus lower the operating costs of the machines they equip.
On   the   industrial   scene,   the   sec- tors  of  choice  for  the  DBS  series are  those  that  most  strongly  require the  execution  of  precise,  controlled movements;   examples   include   the ceramics, packaging and bottling sectors,  which  are  demanding  a constantly  increasing  number  of DBS products – a trend that is so well established that an entire dedicated production line had to be designed for building these motors.

This semi-automatic production line will simultaneously build the three different parts of the DBS series – motor, drive and gear – and increase production of the DBS series by 40% as compared with current volume.
As mentioned above, though, a product  by  itself  (albeit  excellent)  is  not enough to ensure solid, lasting commercial success. In fact, the DBS series has succeeded in acquiring and maintaining a stand-out role on the market in part because of Mini Mo- tor’s  willingness  to  accompany  both its smaller and larger customers from product purchase to initial start-up… and beyond.

Indeed, countless variables come into play during the installation of a motor, which is why Mini Motor includes with its  products  a  package  of  programs that  can  accommodate  the  customer’s  specific  fieldbus.  What’s  more, by taking advantage of the technical support prorided by the Mini Mo- tor  Help  Desk,  the  customer  itself programs the settings for the motors in accordance with its specific production requirements.

“We are striving to maintain a chain of excellence,” says mechanical engineer Alessandro Ciccolella. “We  want  our  established  and  our potential  customers  to  choose  Mini Motor because they are certain they are purchasing the finest possible so- lution from every point of view: from impeccable   product   to   competent, friendly, professional service”.
