Oriental Motor - New Flat Type and TS Geared PKP Series Stepper Motors

Ultra-compact, lightweight and stepper motors with improved torque and low backlash join the PKP Series.

Oriental Motor is pleased to expand the PKP Series stepper motor product line-up with the introduction of the PKP Series 2-phase Flat Type and PKP Series 5-phase TS Geared.


The new 2-phase Flat Type is an ultra-compact and light weight entry to the PKP Series of stepper motors. It is available in two frame sizes; 1.65" (42 mm) or 2.22" (56.4 mm) frame size. The 1.65" frame size Flat Type has a motor body length of 17 mm while the 2.22" frame size has a motor body length of just 16 mm. The Flat Type PKP Series stepper motor can be installed in a narrow space due to its flat profile design where conventional stepper motors would not fit. This makes the Flat Type an ideal solution for applications that require a low profile motor with high position accuracy and low torque requirement.

The new 5-phase PKP Series with TS gearhead is made with a simple spur gear design. The TS type gearhead has the same level of accuracy when compared to our tapered (TH) type without the added cost of tapering. This reduces backlash and improves both torque and high speed performance.

The new PKP Series stepper motors now uses neodymium magnet in its rotor design, which allows for lower vibration compared to the original PKP Series motors. For the optimal results, use the new PKP stepper motors with their respective CVD bipolar driver.

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
