New High-Strength, High-Gear Ratio Gearheads with Stainless Steel Shaft and IP66 rated

Oriental Motor Announces Release of Brushless DC Motor with High-Strength and High Gear Ratio Gearheads

Oriental Motor is pleased to announce the expansion of our popular BMU Series with the introduction of two new high-strength and high gear ratio gearheads, the foot mount JB Gear and the flange mount JV Gear joining the right-angle hollow shaft JH Gear. These new gearheads are designed to be used with our 200 Watt (1/4 HP) or 400 Watt (1/2 HP) BMU Series brushless DC motors. The gear and motor combination increases allowable load of the output shaft and greatly increases maximum permissible torque while providing a space saving and high efficiency speed control system.


The new BMU series brushless motors achieve IP66 class protection through the use of a new motor connector type. And since torque is not saturated with the new high-strength and high-gear ratio gearheads, the maximum output torque is available at each gear ratio. The high permissible radial and axial strength enables powerful, high-spec operations.

The BMU series brushless DC motor speed control system offers a maximum speed of up to 3,600 r/min (80 to 3,600 r/min). Speed ratio of 1:45 is achieved. This allows for a wider speed range, wider selection of gear ratios and torque ranges making the BMU Series an ideal alternative for servo, brushed motors or AC three-phase Inverter driven applications.

The new BMU Series with IP66 rated motor connector and high-strength and high gear ratio gearheads are available for the 200 W (1/4 HP) and 400 W (1/2 HP) brushless motor & driver packages, available to ship in 9 business days.

The BMU IP66 with High Strength Gearheads key features are:
• Stainless steel shaft, IP66 rated
• New motor and connector type
• Space saving
• Maximizing torque with Helical gears
• Continuous flat torque of a brushless motor
• Broader and stable speed range compared to three-phase inverter driven motors

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.
