From 28-30 May, Panasonic Industry Italia will showcase its offerings at SPS Parma in Italy, located in Hall 6 at Stand H008. 

For the first time in Europe, Panasonic will present the new MINAS A7 series of motors and drives featuring artificial intelligence.

Making its European debut, the stand will feature the 3D short pulse fibre laser marker LP-ZV, designed to meet contemporary complex marking needs. Visitors will have the opportunity to engage with Panasonic Industry's technical experts regarding the company's high-value solutions for machine builders and system integrators in connectivity, motion, and sensing fields.

The MINAS A7 series of motors and drives represents the industry's inaugural commercialised AI-equipped servo system. It accomplishes precise automatic tuning surpassing human experts' capabilities, reducing operation time by up to 90%. Leveraging Panasonic's independently developed precAIse TUNING, the devices fully utilise AI technology to achieve highly accurate automatic tuning.

These motors and drives can automate tasks even in areas where manual tuning was previously required due to unsatisfactory performance from conventional automatic tuning functions. The product achieves the industry's highest level of motion performance, featuring a servo motor encoder resolution of 27 bits (134,217,728 pulses/time). The servo amplifier's speed response frequency exceeds industry standards at 4.0 kHz or higher. The servo motor also achieves a maximum rotation speed of 7150 r/min, enhancing cycle time efficiency.

The 3D short pulse fibre  laser marker LP-ZV delivers high-speed and precision laser marking, making it suitable for various metal or plastic marking applications. Equipped with 3D functionality, it excels in marking concave or convex surfaces within a ±25mm range in a 50mm area.

The broad marking field of up to 330mm x 330mm expands the range of products that can be marked. Integrated Z-axis control ensures the ability to mark complex shapes without compromising quality. A 1-ns short pulse minimises thermal effects, while high-frequency oscillation ensures clear marking of extremely small and fine characters down to 0.15mm. The updated Laser Marker NAVI smart software offers a user-friendly interface, including a preview of the marking on the material captured by the built-in camera. Additionally, with its network unit, the LP-ZV seamlessly integrates into customers' production lines via EtherNet/IP or PROFINET.
