MICROMO Launches the FAULHABER FDM0620 Series

Setting New Standards for Stepper Motors

With the new FDM0620 series, MICROMO presents a high performance FAULHABER stepper motor with minimal size. Setting new standards for compact drive systems, all components (including connections) are in a housing that measures just 9.7 mm in length and 6 mm in diameter. With this combination of minimal space requirements and maximum power, reliability and production quality, the FAULHABER Group continues its success story in the field of micro motors and expands its family of stepper motors in the 6 to 22 mm diameter range.


With a holding torque rating of 0.25 mNm and a dynamic torque of up to 0.2 mNm, these stepper motors are a great fit for applications in which high power is required in a small space. Portable devices are an excellent example. The open-loop operation enables fast and simple implementation, and the holding torque rating and the precise angular accuracy make this product the ideal solution for applications with high requirements on angular and linear positioning. Applications in optics, photonics and medical technology are just a few considerations.

The innovative and patented flex PCB system is suitable both for LIF plugs with grid dimensions of 0.5 and 1.0 mm as well as for wiring via lead wires. A wide selection of metric lead screws for linear movements as well as a planetary gearheads with various reduction ratios round out the configuration options of the FDM0620 series.

In addition, other modifications are available that allow the motors to withstand special mechanical loads or environmental influences (e.g., low temperatures or vacuum). This makes the FDM0620 series a flexible solution for a wide range of application areas.

• Dynamic torque to 0.2 mNm

• Speed to 20,000 rpm

• Operating temperature range: -35 to +70°C (in the standard version)

• Long service life

• Can be combined perfectly with gearheads or lead screws

• Ideal for positioning tasks

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.
