Allied Motion Releases New Housed Brushless Torque Motor

Advanced CM-2600 Series Torque Motor Offers Choice of Integrated Encoder

Amherst, New York. : Allied Motion announced the immediate availability of their new CM-2600 series of housed brushless torque motors.


CM-2600 series torque motors are comprised of a high-performance brushless direct current motor, one of three types of optical encoder, and a precision bearing system all enclosed in a robust aluminum housing with an IP40 rating.

The CM-2600 motor is characterized by a very high torque-to-inertia ratio; it delivers rated torque of 0.189 Nm (26.8 oz-in) at a rated speed of 1125 rpm for a rated 22.3 watts of continuous power. The motor has a 19 mm (0.748 in.) inside diameter hollow stainless steel thru shaft (12.7 mm for the absolute encoder version). Peak torque is 0.69 Nm (97 oz-in) and no-load speed is 1900 rpm.

Models are available with the choice of an ultra-low distortion sine-cosine, a digital incremental encoder with up to 1.25 million counts per revolution, or an absolute 17-bit Gray code encoder.

CM-2600 series torque motors are specifically designed for direct-drive, high-resolution, high-speed positioning applications. Typical applications include optical instruments, multi-axis gimbal systems, scanners, and other direct-drive applications where use of a gearbox is undesirable.

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.
