Integrated Wheel Drives Lower Cost of Mobile Robot Ownership

The lifetime cost of ownership of a mobile robot is largely influenced by the design of its drivetrain. If the OEM uses well designed and proven components, the mobile robot will provide many years of service with minimal downtime for maintenance.

Precision Micromotors in Defence Robots

The defence sector is a valuable contributor to the economy, providing a large number of jobs and investing in a number of industries. However the relationship is mutualistic, with advancements in industry benefitting the defence sector.

Without Micromotors Global Logistics Would Be Lost

Always more, always faster, always further everything needs to arrive at the right time at the right place - the global goods cycle keeps the economy running and is a challenge for everyone involved.

The Claxon Platform, a Quad CXP-12 PCIe Gen3 Frame Grabber

CXP-12 now offers the ability of transfer data at rates of 12.5 Gbps over a single cable up to 40m. Accompanied by the ability to power the camera from the PC via the cable is unique and unprecedented. No other interface can offer these options at these data rates currently.

A Lot of Power in a Very Small Space

Drive Systems evolved. Generally speaking, electric motors are not "lone wolves" but for most applications need to be combined with gearheads for speed reduction as well as encoders.

The Importance of the Speed-Torque Gradient in DC Motor Sizing

The speed / torque gradient is an indicator of a motor's performance. The smaller the value, the more powerful the motor and consequently the less motor speed varies with load variations. It is based on the quotient of ideal no-load speed and ideal stall torque.

Understanding the Motor Constant in DC Motor Sizing

One of the most often overlooked parameters of direct current motors (both brush and brushless) is the Km or motor constant. The motor constant (expressed as Km) defines the ability of a motor to transform electrical power into mechanical power.

The Importance of a Reliable Supply Chain for Robotics Companies

Friction in our supply chain -- delays or quality issues, for example -- directly impacts our bottom line. We're a quickly growing company and we need to be agile enough to take advantage of new opportunities as they arise.

RoboticsTomorrow.com - Q&A with ElecroCraft

We provide motion control solutions in the form of electric motors, drives and motion control solutions for OEM Customers who are unsatisfied with having to design around inflexible off-the-shelf products.

Sensorless Control of Brushless Motors

Many applications would benefit from a brushless motor without a sensor. There are various options for realizing this. A method developed by maxon is now setting new standards for precision and reliability.

Choosing the Right Seal for Industrial Robotics

Selecting the appropriate sealing solution is critical to ensure the robot performs as expected. For example, in many of our applications, we must balance friction requirements with sealing effectiveness.

Everything You Want to Know About Alpine Conveyors

The Alpine Conveyor is a compact spiral configuration commonly used as an accumulation or elevating buffer zone between machines or as a process step for cooling or drying. It can also be used for line balancing or product changeover purposes.

What is the Difference between Hexapod 6-DOF Alignment Systems vs Conventional Stacks of Stages?

When faced with a multi-axis alignment and positioning application, motion engineers typically assemble a system from a stack of individual linear and rotary stages. This approach works well for applications when only a few degrees of freedom are involved (e.g. XYZ).

How to Improve the Precision of Positioning Stages with ACS Dynamic Error Compensation

Precision motion systems always exhibit some amount of positioning inaccuracy (or position error) due to various factors. These errors can be measured using external measurement devices, such as a laser interferometer...

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.
