What's the best way to achieve high torque and smooth operation at relatively low speeds, as required for EO/IR applications? Read our blog to find out.

Brushless motors dominate the market, and with good reason.  Learn the design principles, benefits and best uses for both motor types in our new blog.

There’s a lot of fog in the market surrounding cogging torque, its effect on torque ripple, and how to achieve the smoothest motion for EO/IR imaging. Let Kollmorgen's experts clear it up.

What is the best motor technology to use in a motion control application? There are numerous technologies to create motion, from hydraulic to pneumatic or electromechanical. In the world of precision motion control, many machine designers face a choice between step motor or servo motor technologies to solve their performance requirements. Both stepper motors and servo motors have a place in the motion control world but understanding when to use each has created a big debate

The automation industry is growing fast, driven by initiatives such as Industry 4.0 and Made in China 2025, as well as the recent boom in online shopping. To keep up with competition and the increased demand for automated guided vehicles and mobile robots, you need to pick the strongest automation technology to cut time to market. Together we can generate better business through tighter teamwork. Stay ahead by making your company an excellent solution provider to your partners and customers, with a complete automation kit in constant development from NDC Solutions.

From the surface of Mars to the depths of the ocean, from the core of the earth to the core of the human body, Kollmorgen motion systems take on the most extreme environments.

There are several performance requirements that must be considered when selecting a stepper motor for an application. Our Stepper Optimizer tool is the fastest and most reliable way to determine these needs.

A stepper motor is a simple two phase brushless synchronous motor containing a segmented magnetized rotor and a stator consisting of a prescribed number of electromagnetic coils. When energized, these coils create north and south polls that push or pull the segmented magnetized rotor to make it spin.

There are several considerations when selecting a direct drive linear actuator for a specific application, such as the required speed, force, motion profile, available physical envelope, and environmental factors. This means the chosen actuator solution must produce the load force and speed requirements, fit in the available space, and perform as required under the subjected environmental conditions of the application.

The purpose of an AGV system is efficient transportation of goods in a specified environment. The AGV system is a big investment, so it is desirable to have a high degree of utilization as well as a high ratio of deliveries per hour to get a good ROI.
