When constructing a prototype, or if a product is scheduled for a rapid market launch, it is often necessary to choose the right DC motor for the project very quickly. In such cases, engineers go to maxon motor's online configurator. The platform has tens of thousands of drive options to choose from, all of which are available quickly and easily. In addition to the brushed and brushless DC motors with diameters of 8 to 35 millimeters available in the configurator, maxon recently expanded its range of brushless ECX drives.

As a result, ECX SPEED drives are now available in a variety of sizes, both in the high-power or sterilizable versions and also with the option of ceramic bearings. In addition, we offer planetary gearheads (GPX SPEED) to complement the ECX drives and, as a sealed design, tolerate 2,000 autoclave cycles. The entire range of products available in the configurator can be found at: shop.maxonmotorusa.com

Ready in only 11 days
The online configurator, allows users to assemble their individual drive including: shafts, flanges, electrical connections, etc. This gives users a whole new range of possibilities. A complete drive - including gearheads and encoder - can be configured and ordered in only a few minutes. The electronic data goes directly to maxon motor's production facilities, where the drives are put together in automated processes. Once order is placed, it will be processed and shipped within eleven working days.

Universal Robots Add a Sense of Touch in New e-Series Cobots with Built-in Force/Torque Sensor and Re-Designed User Interface

With the new e-Series cobot line, Universal Robots raises the bar for cobots, adding unique new features while significantly strengthening the four core principles defining collaborative robots: fast set-up, easy programming, flexible deployment, and safe operation. With a new built-in, tool-centric Force/Torque sensor the e-Series is ready to take on applications requiring force control right out of the box. A repeatability of 30 micron means the new cobots are suitable for very precise finishing, assembly and electronics tasks. A re-designed user interface decreases cognitive load and expedites program development, while a new externally accessible, 500Hz system bus enables more complex motion control algorithms or profiles.
