MICROMO’s New FAULHABER 2057…BHS Brushless DC Servo Motor Robust, High Speed Motors for Medical and Dental Handpieces

The new FAULHABER 2057…BHS Brushless DC Servo Motors are designed to address the specific requirements of the medical and dental hand piece markets.

The new FAULHABER 2057…BHS Brushless DC Servo Motors are designed to address the specific requirements of the medical and dental hand piece markets. While remaining cool to the touch, the high efficiency, slotless design features smooth speed control with a wide continuous duty speed range up to 40,000 rpm. The motors are capable of handling intermittent overload conditions to address highly dynamic motion over shorter cycle times. Low vibration, which reduces user fatigue, and low audible noise are ideal for long periods of use in sensitive medical and dental patient environments.


The new motors come standard with digital hall sensors, and analog hall sensor feedback is available
on request. This option is ideal to eliminate the need for an additional encoder for slower speed
operation for dental implant or endoscopic positioning applications, which can also significantly reduce
cabling complexity within the handpiece itself. Preloaded ball bearings insure that the motors are able
to withstand the radial (22N) and axial loads (75N) in a hand piece. The extremely long service life can
be extended further through the simple replacement of the front bearing.

A wide variety of high precision gearheads, high resolution magnetic and optical encoders and drive electronics are available to complete the drive system. Contact a MICROMO Engineer today to learn more.

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.
