From Specs to Supply: Meeting Key Motor Requirements in Aerospace and Defense Programs

Specialized aerospace and defense applications often require design engineers to go beyond commercial off-the-shelf frameless motors. Yet rapid development schedules and cost pressures may run counter to the level of customization required for exceptional, long-term service.

In this white paper, Kollmorgen engineers look at the top five considerations when optimizing frameless motors for demanding aerospace and defense applications. You’ll gain a clear perspective on balancing precision motor performance with schedules, budgets and operating environments.

Learn how to optimize frameless motor performance.

Motion to Meet the Mission

Staying On Target with Motors for Stabilized Platforms

Whether it’s on land, at sea, in air or in the reaches of space, acquiring and holding targets starts with a stabilized platform tailored to the environment. Selecting the right motor for these diverse and dynamic platforms is critical.

If you’re interested in what to look for in motor performance, this blog post covers the full range of operational environments. See what criteria to look for when specifying servo motors for smooth, precise motion.

Top Products for LEO Satellites

TBM Series Medium Image

TBM Series Frameless >

Our TBM series provides direct drive frameless motors designed to be directly embedded in the mechanical structure of your systems, minimizing weight, size and inertia without sacrificing performance.

KBM Series Frameless

KBM Series Frameless >

The KBM series offers high performance, long life, simple installation in a motor kit that can be embedded directly in your mechanical design. A huge selection of standard motors and cost-effective modifications ensure a perfect fit.

RBE Series Frameless >

The frameless configuration of these relatively high-torque, low-speed, pancake-style motors eliminates shaft, bearings, endbells and couplings for reduced volume, weight and complexity when integrated directly with the load.
