Expanding its offerings of synchronous motors, HEIDENHAIN Corporation introduces the new QSY 260B and QSY 260C EcoDyn series of servo motors with stall torque of 85.0 Nm and 120.0 Nm, respectively. Of particular use on machine tools, these HEIDENHAIN motors provide low torque ripple which guarantee high speed stability and positioning accuracy, resulting in parts with superior surface quality.

With these new HEIDENHAIN servo motors, a high rotor moment of inertia provides for high maximum acceleration and high load inertia. Common applications for these motors types include large boring mills and other heavy load machining.

Motors of the EcoDyn series are characterized by reduced current consumption together with higher rated torque and a max. permissible rated speed of 3000 min-1.

These motor come standard equipped with either incremental or absolute HEIDENHAIN rotary encoders.

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
