Oriental Motor Introduces PKP Series Standard 2-Phase 1.8° and 0.9° Stepper Motor with Electromagnetic Brake

Leading the stepper motor market, now with power-off activated electromagnetic brakes

Oriental Motor is pleased to introduce our new 1.8° and 0.9° PKP Series 2-Phase stepper motor, the leading stepper motor in the market, now preassembled with new Oriental Motor's Original Electromagnetic Brake.


The new PKP Series stepper motors are now available with built-in power-off activated electromagnetic brakes. When power is accidentally cut off due to unexpected events, such as a black out, the electromagnetic brake holds the load in position to prevent it from moving. When the motor is at standstill, it can be held by the electromagnetic brake. The electromagnetic brake can also be used to suppress the heat generated from the motor by switching off the motor current and using the brake as the holding function.

The new PKP Series stepper motors with Electromagnetic Brake type is available in both bipolar and unipolar configurations and in the following frame sizes: 35 mm (1.38 in.), 42 mm (1.65 in.) and 56.4 mm (2.22 in.). PKP26_ models (56.5 mm/2.22 in. frame size) comes with an 8 mm shaft.

The PKP Series with new Oriental Motor Original Electromagnetic Brake key features are:

* Pre-assembled to save time and money
* Power off activated 24 VDC
* 1.8° and 0.9° PKP motors
* Bipolar or unipolar windings

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.
