invasive surgery is the way of the future. Improving on the technologies of
conventional laparoscopy and arthroscopy, surgical robots are providing
surgeons with greater visibility, dexterity, precision and comfort than ever
surgical robots decrease operative trauma, improve patient outcomes and
shorten lengths of stay in prostate, cardiac, gynecological and many other
types of surgery. And their growth potential is unlimited as new surgical
applications are developed and as hospitals add new capabilities to better
compete for patients.
Demanding Motion Environment: The Operating Room
control of multi-axis motion, with coordination across all surgical controls,
cameras and instruments, is the key to surgical robotics. This requires the
highest-quality servo motors, drives and motion controllers working together
seamlessly over a high-bandwidth motion network. But it’s not just about
quality. It takes a complete motion solution, integrating components that are
designed to work together within the most demanding application requirements
and space constraints. These are Kollmorgen’s signature strengths.
The Right Tools
offers the industry’s most advanced servo motors in configurations and torque
ranges to meet virtually any specification. Our compact frameless and cartridge
motors provide direct rotary motion for the stiffest, most exact motion in the
smallest possible space – without the need for complicated and bulky
transmission components. We also provide the integrated drives, controls,
development tools and expertise needed to bring an optimized motion solution
from the drawing board to the operating room.
should always be the number-one concern in the healthcare setting. Repair and
maintenance time is time that could be spent treating patients, instead of
rescheduling their appointments. Through the Fortive Business System, our
kaizen-based quality assurance and continuous improvement programs have made
Kollmorgen the recognized leader in high-end motion. And with our global
supply, engineering and support network, the components and expertise to keep
robots performing are always near at hand. So the robot is always on the job.
