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.
ElectroCraft Drives Feature Easy Setup and Operation
The ElectroCraft CompletePower™ Plus Universal Drive takes the guesswork out of selecting and configuring a drive and motor combination by incorporating all of the features and functions necessary to provide optimal control of a wide variety of brushless DC motors.
Intralogistics: AGV vs. AMR
Until recently, AGVs were the only option for automating internal transport tasks. Today, a more sophisticated technology is competing with them: Autonomous Mobile Robots AMR. Although both AGVs and AMRs allow materials to be moved from point A to point B, the comparison ends there.
Robots on the Set
Intelligent robotic cameras that automate live transmission are used on stages, racetracks, and playing fields, operate autonomously - and provide a perfect TV experience.
maxon motor - Formulae Handbook for Design Engineers
The extensive collection with illustrations and descriptions includes formulas, terminology and explanations of the calculations that are relevant for drive systems. A flow chart provides assistance in selecting the right drive for each purpose.
DC Motors as Generators
Both brushed and brushless DC motors can be operated as generators. However, there are some important points to consider when designing the drive.
DC Motor/Gearmotor "MTBF" A Few Facts About Life Expectancy
If the duty is continuous, that means the motor, if properly sized, will reach thermal equilibrium typically in about 20 Minutes of continual operation (possibly more, depending on the size of the unit).
