Anaheim Automation Offers a DC Motor with Worm Gearbox Configuration

Anaheim Automation's recent addition to their Brush DC Gearmotor product line includes a worm gearbox configuration, providing more depth and versatility to their already broad line of spur and planetary gearboxes.

Anaheim, CA February 10, 2014


Already a supplier of a vast line of planetary and spur Brush DC Gearmotors, Anaheim Automation's latest product is unlike the rest of them. Their most recent launch entails a line of worm gearboxes, the first worm gear configuration they have offered in their product line since opening their doors over 45 years ago. Designed for high-volume OEM applications, these worm gearboxes sport an odd appearance, much different than the typical inline planetary and spur-configured gearmotors offered. The cylindrical motor is complimented by a pinwheel looking gearbox configured to mount perpendicular to the motor.

These gearboxes are offered in a wide range of sizes and gear ratios and are capable of delivering up to 850 oz-in of torque. Typically these gearmotors are used in rotary applications, including semiconductor, medical, robotics, CNC, pumps, and more. The recent addition to Anaheim Automation's Brush DC Gearmotor product line (http://www.anaheimautomation.com/products/brush/dc-gearmotors-list.php?cID=46) offers versatility, giving Anaheim Automation a well-rounded product line to offer to their users.

ST Robotics Develops the Workspace Sentry for Collaborative Robotics

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
