Micromo - FAULHABER 20/1R Planetary Gearhead

New Planetary Gearhead Sets New Precision Standards

MICROMO is pleased to announce the new FAULHABER technology that offers the most powerful power

transmission technology in its size class to the market with the new 20/1R planetary gearhead. A diameter of
20 mm allows the stainless steel gearhead to achieve continuous torque of 800 mNm, and up to 1100 mNm for
short periods during interval operation. Following intensive development with a comprehensive series of tests,
the power output was able to more than triple in comparison to previous models. The input speed reaches 12,000
rpm. The 20/1R can be combined with DC, brushless motors and stepper motors with a diameter of 17 to 22mm.
The output shaft of the 20/1R has no axial play thanks, to the pre-tensioned ball bearing. The gearhead is
available with one to five stages, and the span of the 16 possible reduction gear ratios ranges from 3.71:1 to
1526:1. There is also a choice between the normal temperature range of -10 to +125°C and a low temperature
variant with -45 to +100°C. The typical temperature range for planetary gearheads made from metal is extended
considerably. Numerous product variants, including an autoclavable version, make it easy to adapt to completely
different applications. The connection of the new 20/1R planetary gearhead is compatible with its predecessor,
the 20/1. When upgrading, the previous gearhead can be replaced with the new model without further changes.
MICROMO (FAULHABER Group) specializes in high‐precision, micro drive systems, servo components and
drive electronics with output power of up to 200 watts. The product range includes brushless DC motors,
brush DC motors, piezo motors, stepper motors, linear servo motors, gearheads, encoders and motion

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.
