Surgical robotic arms in operating room.

When surgeons perform delicate, often life-saving surgeries with the aid of a surgical robot, they expect complete freedom to manipulate essential instruments at various angles, in extremely tight incisions, and without constraint.

Meeting these critical expectations means designing robotic arm joints that are axially compact and positioned both independently and closer together. How do you accomplish this while simultaneously delivering the necessary torque, speed and precision? Read this white paper to learn key design considerations including gearbox and servo motor selection, and how to approach the overriding size challenge in robotic joints.
