Why Do AGVs Need Reliable Motors?
Any automated system is only as good as its reliability. An automated guided vehicle (AGV) for example, needs to do the job it is programmed to do; without error, quickly and efficiently.
MiniMACS6 Stabilizes the Furuta Pendulum
A classic problem in engineering is the rotational inverted pendulum. It is used to demonstrate and examine movement patterns and control algorithms in control and electrical engineering as well as in mechanical engineering. These help to control robots and other machines.
When to Choose a 4pole DC Motor
A 4pole design is stronger than a 2pole equivalent but can also fit within the same space and weight envelope. Greg Dutfield of maxon UK explains.

ResinDek® Panels, The Flooring Solution for Robotic Platforms

We know that the durability and condition of floors are important for optimal performance of AGV's and AMR's. Coefficient of friction, surface roughness, floor flatness, gloss, and wear can all affect the ability of robots to run at their peak performance. That's why we go to great lengths to extensively test internally and send our products to be evaluated by independent laboratories as well as the robotic manufacturers. In addition, we can customize the finish for any specification required.
