In the rapidly evolving field of robotic-assisted surgery, the goal is minimally invasive procedures that help patients to recover as quickly and completely as possible. Robotic-assisted platforms for laparoscopic, orthopedic and other surgeries must precisely coordinate motion and feedback across all surgical controls, robotic arms, cameras and instruments to deliver smaller incisions and predictable surgical outcomes.

Kollmorgen’s broad portfolio of motors, drives, controls, gearing and actuation will help you optimize each axis of motion within your robotic platform.

  1. Surgical Console: An array of components – finger loops, joysticks, foot pedals – ensure exacting execution of the surgeon’s intention. Equally importantly, these components deliver critical haptic feedback that connects the surgeon in real-time to the robotic instruments and the patient.

    Kollmorgen’s high-torque-density motors easily accommodate physical space limitations and offer the ultimate in precision control. Cogging compensation, vibration suppression and noise rejection ensure surgeons only feel what they should.
  2. Robotic Arm Cart: Today’s surgical robots must deliver precise, smooth, and quiet operation for acceptance by hospitals and surgeons.

    Kollmorgen’s torque-dense frameless motors enable smaller, lighter arms and the highest definition control. Servo motors are ideal for the gantry and columns, which position robotic arms over the patient.
  3. Patient Table: Just like the surgical console and robotic arm cart, the patient table must offer infinite adjustments and smooth, quiet operation.

    Kollmorgen servo motors allow for quiet and precise positioning of the patient table. Low cogging designs ensure smooth operation. Sophisticated controls synchronize table motion with that of robotic tools to allow even more freedom of movement during complex surgeries.
