Human Collaboration: The Future of Robotics

Collaborative robots (cobots), manufacturing robots and robotic arms are designed to learn and adapt to new tasks as needed, as if they were a human coworker. This requires controlled, safe motion enabled by high quality servo motors inside of the robot joints in order to safely operate beside their human co-workers. The versatility of human/robot collaboration promises to bring new capabilities and efficiencies to industries as diverse as packaging, factory automation, food and beverage processing, life sciences, medical automation and more.

The Right Tools

Kollmorgen offers the industry’s most advanced servo motors in configurations and torque ranges to meet virtually any specification. Our compact frameless motors provide direct rotary motion for compliant and safe motion in a compact space – without the need for complicated and bulky transmission components. Our ability to optimize motor performance and packaging enables increased robot precision for improved control and safety. We also provide the integrated drives, controls, development tools and expertise needed to bring an optimized motion solution from design to production.
