ITT Launches Automation Grade Brushless Servo Motor

New product designed for medical, packaging applications

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y.--ITT Corporation's (NYSE: ITT) Torque Systems brand has long provided engineered motion control and automation products for a variety of industries. It is now expanding its line of high-quality and reliable products by launching an automation grade brushless servo motor designed for medical and packaging applications.


A servo motor provides automated equipment with the speed and motion control necessary to function efficiently and reliably, based on feedback from other machinery components. Medical automation applications for the new servo motor include surgical robotics, diagnostic machines and analyzers, while packaging automation applications include bottle capping and package filling and labeling.

"ITT manufactures products and solutions for key end markets, and these technologies are recognized industry-wide for their quality, reliability and overall value," said Jeff Weisbeck, director, product management and sales, for ITT's Control Technologies business. "With this new line of servo motors, we are enhancing our ability to serve the needs of our customers."

ITT's Torque Systems brand's engineered motion control and automation products include AC and DC servo motors and incremental encoders in addition to its line of brushless motors and direct drive sets. For more information, visit www.torquesystems.com

ST Robotics - K11R robot controller now available for your own robot!

ST Robotics - K11R robot controller now available for your own robot!

St Robotics is making the K11R robot controller available for any robot that uses stepping motors including the IGUS range. Providing you use low inductance motors the K11R will provide surprising power and speed from it's 55v DC supply and Gecko micro-stepping drives controlled by a fast DSP and micro-controller. The software is RoboForth II V17 embedded in the controller which together with the PC project supervisor gets your robot going within minutes. It is a text based conversational language that is so easy to use yet permits programs of great complexity when required. The kinematics are easily tailored to any size of robot and any number of axes from 3 to 6. The controller will also provide easy calibration to sensors and also reads back and compares encoders if you fit them. Speed, acceleration and rate of acceleration (3rd order) are all programmable as is emergency stop and many other features. Your positional data and programs may be saved on your PC and also in the controller's flash memory. The K11R will also control external devices such as pneumatic gripper, vacuum pickup, air cylinders and communicate with a PLC. Pricing starts at $2500. Contact ST at sales@strobotics.com
