Minimally invasive surgery – the future is here. More accurate procedures lead to higher quality surgeries, faster recovery time and improved quality of life. Improving on the technologies of conventional laparoscopy and arthroscopy, surgical robots are providing surgeons with greater visibility, dexterity, precision and comfort than ever before.

Today’s surgical robots and medical 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.

The Most Demanding Motion Environment: The Operating Room

Precise control of multi-axis motion, with coordination across all surgical controls, robotic arms, 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.

A Tireless Assistant

Quality 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.

Kollmorgen offers:

  • Housed and frameless motors
  • Low cogging motors
  • High torque density motors
  • Low dynamic friction motors
  • Industry leading feedback options
  • Millions of standard product variants
  • Capability to create new motor variants
  • 100 years of experience driving our innovation
  • Rapid prototyping of modified designs
  • Scalable production support – regionally and globally
  • Local engineering and application support
  • Online motor selection tools
