All the news of IPC at SPS IPC Drives Italia 2018

Stepper Drives STF and Step-Servo Drives EtherCAT SS-EC, together with NEMA 6 Stepper motor and the new NEMA 8, attracted the attention of visitors

A few weeks after the end of the 8th edition of SPS IPC Drives Italia 2018International Power Components is ready to sum up and thanking all the customers, visitors and experts of the sector, for the great interest shown during the three days (22-24 May ) in Parma.Look at the interview with the IPC’ Sales Manager, Marco Bassan:

A big space to sharing ideas, training and, above all, innovation brought by companies and expert operating in the industrial automation sector.

Companies as IPC, a leading company in the electric motors sector since 1985, that during this event presented his whole range of its products, with a special attention to the 4 great news of this 2018 edition.

For those who missed them, here is a short summary:



They are high performance stepper drives with compact dimensions that have 3 main features: advanced integrated functions that allows to reduce the resonance level at certain speeds, torque ripple smoothing that gives much smoother motion to the motor at low speed and online configuration via fieldbus for motion profiles.



Pratici, efficaci e in grado di proiettarsi verso il futuro.

Practical, effective and with an eye on the future. These  Step-Servo Drives EtherCAT SS-EC  are equipped with built-in EtherCAT communication interface and can operate as a standard EtherCAT slave using CANopen over EtherCAT (CoE). These drives can be combined with various associated step servo motors.



One of this year’s novelty is the NEW NEMA 6 Stepper Motor, one of the smallest stepper motors on the market. Thanks to its 16mm diameter, it is able to change the traditional way to design and to expand the possibilities of experimentation and creation of new applications, previously unimaginable.

A real revolution for engineers who have to design small equipment, especially for medical sector, laboratory automation and all applications that require a high precision.


The new high torque MS8HY engine, the latest product in the stepper motor family, was created for small equipment and precision instruments.

It is available in two versions: with SQUARE flange, and with the brand new ROUND flange design, made to save space and an to have a lower weight, designed to replace round motors of other technologies.

This motor is able to deliver up to 40% more torque than traditional NEMA 8 stepper motors.

The entire staff of International Power Components thanks everyone for the visit at our stand at the fair.
