At least 60 million strokes

A "compact automation" is a mechatronic system that performs a whole series of consecutive production steps autonomously. "Compact" refers to the small dimensions, in the millimeter and centimeter range, of the products to be processed.

The rise of modular robots and the importance of drive train design

As part of an in-house robot build, optimizing the drive train that powers and controls each joint is vital to the robot's performance. The most effective way of achieving this is by developing the drive train as a complete module.

The most compact Motion Control System on the market

FAULHABER is introducing a new Motion Control System. More precisely: The world's smallest Integrated Motion Controller.

Optimizing Material Handling Processes for Increased Efficiency

Over the past few years, all aspects of the warehousing sector have been automated and this naturally includes the materials handling processes. This automation has increased efficiency across the board as well as improving employee safety and productivity.

DC microdrives bring dynamics into handling

Miniature drives and microdrives can be found in virtually all areas of automation technology and have a correspondingly wide variety of applications. These range from medical technology and laboratory automation.

Autonomous towing robots speeding up material handling

With omnidirectional movement and smart docking with virtually any warehouse cart in under 20 seconds, these new robots are making material handling faster and safer.

Motors and Motion Control Technologies in Orthopedic Surgical Robotics

Motors found inside orthopedic tools normally serve as the primary power source for driving devices like bone saws, drills or shavers. In these variable speed applications, motors need to be exceptionally small in diameter, lightweight & capable of running at high speed.

When to Choose a 4pole DC Motor

A 4pole design is stronger than a 2pole equivalent but can also fit within the same space and weight envelope. Greg Dutfield of maxon UK explains.

Can robots care? - Coreless motors driving patient care robots

FAULHABER's SR motor series is ideal for healthcare robot applications. Supplied by EMS in the UK and Ireland, the motors are designed for optimum power and performance while minimising weight and size.

How to Select the Right Motor for Your Robot

As both an industry and an entire class of technology, robotics changes and advances rapidly. Whether as a hobbyist or seasoned robotics engineer, you need to know each component inside and out. You should also know how to choose between several different variations.

Design and Operation Features of a BDC Motor Controller

The design and functionality of a DC motor controller depend on the characteristics of the motor and the electronic system it powers. Using the example of a brushed DC motor controller, we'll consider its operating principles and circuit design.

5 Challenges a Motor Has to Overcome on Mars Home

Outer space is unforgiving. This is why precision drives embarking on a trip to other planets need to meet extremely high quality standards.

IP65, IP67, IP68…What Do Protection Ratings Mean?

If you are working on a project that calls for an electric motor unit, you will certainly have come across the terms IP65, IP67 and IP68. What do these protection ratings cover? Which protection should be chosen based on your project? Here's a brief answer to these questions.

Covid-19: Drive Technology and Physical Distancing

The sanitary crisis linked to the diffusion of Covid-19 requires everyone to apply measures of social distancing. Motorized and automated solutions are being developed at high speed as a solution.

Ironhand superpower under control

Ironhand ® from the Swedish company BIOSERVOTECHNOLOGIES is a soft, active exoskeleton for the hands and fingers. Normally, a gripping action is made possible by the muscles in the lower arm and hand.
