MICROMO’s New FAULHABER 2057…BHS Brushless DC Servo Motor Robust, High Speed Motors for Medical and Dental Handpieces

The new FAULHABER 2057…BHS Brushless DC Servo Motors are designed to address the specific requirements of the medical and dental hand piece markets.

The new FAULHABER 2057…BHS Brushless DC Servo Motors are designed to address the specific requirements of the medical and dental hand piece markets. While remaining cool to the touch, the high efficiency, slotless design features smooth speed control with a wide continuous duty speed range up to 40,000 rpm. The motors are capable of handling intermittent overload conditions to address highly dynamic motion over shorter cycle times. Low vibration, which reduces user fatigue, and low audible noise are ideal for long periods of use in sensitive medical and dental patient environments.


The new motors come standard with digital hall sensors, and analog hall sensor feedback is available
on request. This option is ideal to eliminate the need for an additional encoder for slower speed
operation for dental implant or endoscopic positioning applications, which can also significantly reduce
cabling complexity within the handpiece itself. Preloaded ball bearings insure that the motors are able
to withstand the radial (22N) and axial loads (75N) in a hand piece. The extremely long service life can
be extended further through the simple replacement of the front bearing.

A wide variety of high precision gearheads, high resolution magnetic and optical encoders and drive electronics are available to complete the drive system. Contact a MICROMO Engineer today to learn more.

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.
