HMK partners Siemens at Drives & Controls 2014

HMK Automation & Drives, an Integrated Drive Systems Distribution Partner for Siemens Industry, will showcase its full range of general and high performance drives, mechanical components and solutions at the Drives & Controls show in April, the 8th to the 10th.

The Siemens Integrated Drive Systems (IDS) concept will be on show on HMK’s stand. The HMK team will demonstrate how customers can benefit from the quality and breadth of the unrivalled Siemens integrated portfolio along with the professional engineering expertise and support offered by HMK. 
Siemens’ IDS meet the broadest range of performance requirements in all industry sectors and exceed expectations in applications from

conveyor systems, mills, pumps, fans and compressors, through to complex multi axes high performance solutions in production environments. The integration of all the components provides performance, reliability and cost-effectiveness for the entire drive train.  


The systems offered by HMK make the specification, purchase, implementation, operation and maintenance of any drive system faster and easier than ever before. HMK provides a single point of contactand a service  representing true added value, greater reliability, higher efficiency, superior productivity in any automation environment and throughout the entire life cycle – and most importantly, reduced time to market and profit.
Carl Karjewski, CEO of HMK, commented: “With a myriad of standard applications, fully supported with real world drives experience and an extensive mechanical offer, HMK Automation & Drives is uniquely positioned to support and partner OEMs and system integrators alike.  We look forward to welcoming visitors to our stand D120 at the NEC in Birmingham to share what benefits we can offer.”
Andrew Peters, Divisional Director, Drive Technologies at Siemens Industry, added: “Our partnerships are really important to us and help us deliver the best possible results for end users.  That’s why it’s great to support HMK and its presence at the show and help the team demonstrate our integrated drive systems, designed to offer optimum reliability, efficiency and cost savings.”
At the show, HMK will also feature what is new in the Siemens SIMATIC range, which is globally accepted and, when coupled with SINAMICS drives, offers an unrivalled Totally Integrated Automation (TIA) solution. The benefits of a common seamless software platform and device routing are highly apparent for setup, remote diagnostics and subsequent support, ensuring minimum downtime and maximum efficiency to the ultimate user of the system. 
New in the UK is SINAMICS V offering a cost effective solution where a fully integrated drive is not required, standard VSD and servo variants are available. Where integration into the broader system brings benefit, SINAMICS G is the perfect solution. For the highest performance requirements, SINAMICS S meets the challenge, a feature rich, high speed deterministic engineered drives solution. 
HMK will also demonstrate its expanding mechanical range of components and solutions including Siemens Flender (Industrial motor gearboxes and couplings), Bahr (modular positioning systems), Neugart (planetary gearboxes), Atlanta (racks and pinions). In addition to these ranges, HMK will also showcase its ability to deliver an integrated engineered solution.
For the first time, HMK will show its stainless steel actuator system aimed specifically at applications in food and pharmaceuticals handling solutions, incorporating Bahr mechanics, optimised by the Siemens SIMOTION Handling Toolbox.
