Servo motors are used in numerous markets to power machines, instruments, robots, and other factory automation applications. This blog addresses five major elements of a conventional brushless DC servo motor: the rotor, stator, bearings, feedback and housing.
What if you could design and build a surgical robot that help doctors perform less invasive, more precise operations and achieve better patient outcomes? While the results of any surgery depend on the challenges of the specific case and the skill of the surgeon, better tools support better care. Here’s how next-generation motion engineering can help you develop the next generation of surgical robots.
Every machine builder knows that they have to meet stringent safety requirements to protect workers from the risk of injury. If they build machines for the EU market, they should know that the European regulatory landscape is more advanced than in most other regions, with newer and more rigorous requirements for safety design and testing.
When designing motion for applications such as vertical gantries and hoists, you need to take special care to ensure operator safety and operational efficiency. Let’s discuss best practices for meeting the particular challenges involved.
Engineers often face challenges when incorporating servo motors into a new machine design. Choosing between a housed motor or a frameless torque motor shouldn’t be one of them. This blog reveals three design considerations that indicate why a frameless motor should be considered.
Advances in processor technology for servo drives continue to expand the features and capabilities they offer. Choosing a new drive or control system over an existing system ultimately depends on the application requirements. The AKD2G servo drive platform employs a new dual core processor and increased memory for high performance applications. A variety of applications can take advantage of its advanced capabilities, ease of use, and flexibility. Machine builders should consider five critical drive elements to upgrade from AKD to AKD2G.
Every machine designer wants to deliver the best possible performance. Especially in today’s food and beverage industry, the pressure for optimum throughput and quality means that every OEM is striving to engineer new systems that are the best of the best.
At Kollmorgen, there are more and more female employees every year, which really helps to broaden overall perspectives. Everyone agrees that diversity drives innovation and these values apply to the group at every level.
We are now living in a digital world. E-commerce consumers expect goods to be delivered faster and more flexibly than was the case just a couple of years ago. Organizations, retailers, and their warehouse service providers therefore need to find new ways to move, store, and dispatch goods with agility and accuracy. Add the widespread shortage of labor and you have an indisputable case for automated solutions to meet the myriad of challenges.
