Kollmorgen Showcases Motion Control Expertise at AUSA 2019, Exhibiting Newest Motors for Defense Applications

RADFORD, VA – August 28, 2019 – Attendees of the AUSA 2019 Annual Meeting & Exhibition in Washington, DC, October 14 -16, are invited to visit Booth #7619 to meet Kollmorgen aerospace and defense experts and learn more about the company’s motion solutions for applications including: EO/IR, remote weapon stations, military robotics, radar satcom systems, missiles and guided munitions, and other high-performance systems.

“As part of the industry for the past 100 years, Kollmorgen has worked with all the major defense OEMs around the world to help innovate in a wide variety of applications,” said Mike Crowe, Director of A & D. “Kollmorgen motors are found on the floor of the ocean, on the surface of Mars, in outer space, as well as in mission-critical land, sea and air applications.”

Kollmorgen combines its core motion control expertise with award-winning motion technologies – direct drive servo motors, brushed and brushless torque motors, servo and stepper motors, linear actuators, gearboxes, and controls – to create the most advanced aerospace and defense applications, including the following:

Electro-Optical/Infrared(EO/IR): Kollmorgen provides motor technology that enables smooth, accurate, and stable motion to position image sensors and long-range detection systems. These rugged motors are directly coupled to the internal workings of the EO/IR system to provide the visual integrity and stability required for even the most extreme conditions.

Military robotics: Kollmorgen has been on the leading edge of precision robotics technology for decades with over 100,000 units fielded in high-reliability systems. Award-winning TBM™ frameless motors are optimized for fit and performance with industry standard strain wave gearing and industry-leading torque density to enable precise, smooth, reliable motion for defense applications including bomb-disposal robots.

Remote weapons stations: Kollmorgen’s compact, lightweight KBM™ frameless servo motors excel in meeting the extreme multi-axis torque and speed requirements for remote weapons stations.

Radar satcom systems: Kollmorgen’s TBM™ frameless motors deliver the torque required for the rapid acceleration and deceleration needed for radar and antennas with substantial mass, while maintaining accurate positioning.
