Rugged, Precise Motion Solutions

The motors used to position radar and satellite antennas with substantial mass must provide the torque needed for acceleration and deceleration while maintaining accurate positioning. The entire system depends on servo motors that always respond instantly and precisely.

Kollmorgen offers rugged, reliable servo motors — including the frameless TBM and RBE series and the housed AKM2G series — that deliver reliable performance for every motion requirement, even when positioning large antennas under the harshest environmental conditions.

Top Products for Satellite Ground Stations

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.
