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.

No-Compromise Cobot Design
Cobot engineering has always involved tradeoffs. To get enough torque, do you have to go with a larger, heavier motor? To get enough speed, do you have to accept a steep decline in the torque curve? To get enough of both, do you have to put up with excessive winding temperatures that can damage other components?
Learn how to eliminate these tradeoffs, achieving your ideal torque, speed, size and temperature specifications simultaneously. Read our Blog in Motion, and say no to cobot compromises.
Ready to Design
Our high-torque TBM2G brushless motors support your vision while reducing design time. All motors are optimized to meet the technical specifications for existing collaborative robot applications.
Speed, torque, temperature rise, size and weight are all precisely designed to fit your 15 kg and under collaborative robot (cobot) applications.
Additionally, Kollmorgen’s TBM2G torque motors offer standard sizing that integrates directly into harmonic gearing designs while providing a large inner diameter through-bore.
Smaller, lighter and faster cobots are within reach—with less time from prototyping to production.

Resources for Best Performance
Robotic joint design almost always involves tradeoffs. But does it have to be that way? Let’s look at the three most common compromises.
A collaborative robot (Cobot) is a robot intended to physically interact with humans in a shared workspace. This is in contrast with other robots, designed to operate autonomously. A "cobot" is a robot that works in tandem with a human worker. The assumption is that a cobot and a human can produce an end result better and faster than either could do working alone.
Frameless, or “servo motor kits”, open up numerous possibilities in designing motion elements for your machine related to performance. A frameless motor consists of rotor and stator components which are built into a machine assembly to transmit torque to a load. Many applications which take advantage of a frameless motor are direct driven, which eliminates bandwidth robbing compliance. Effectively, this means you have eliminated torsional losses and any wind-up or spring losses.
