Portescap is pleased to announce the release of the 20ECF brushless slotted flat motor, which is the latest motor to join the flat motor platform. The 20ECF is characterized by a flat architecture, as well as a compact package size that is a hallmark of Portescap’s existing brushless motor portfolio.
Engineers often face challenges when incorporating servo motors into a new machine design, such as choosing between a conventional housed motor or a frameless design. Kollmorgen engineers examine the components of a frameless motor and review three key design considerations that would indicate a frameless solution is the best fit for a machine.
Servo motors are used in numerous markets to power machines, instruments, robots, and other factory automation applications. This Kollmorgen blog addresses five major elements of a conventional brushless DC servo motor: the rotor, stator, bearings, feedback and housing.
Kollmorgen will exhibit their next-generation TBM2G series of frameless servomotors at the 2022 Automate Show, June 6 - 9, in Detroit, MI. Kollmorgen will also speak on the topic of Improving Robot Efficiency Through Permanent Magnet Motor Design and Selection at the breakout session on the afternoon of June 8.
The drive system manufacturer Heinzmann has introduced a new wheel hub motor with integrated transmission, which was developed in close collaboration with Framo Morat. The compact, high-performance drive provides ensures efficient operation in automated guided vehicles (AGV) and autonomous mobile robots (AMR).
Piezo Motion, a Brain Scientific company, and Micro Technology Group (MTG) recently announced a partnership. Piezo Motion is a developer and manufacturer of automation technology. MTG, headquartered in Mansfield, Massachusetts, is a business development company providing technical marketing and sales services for leading manufacturers.
Kollmorgen has announced the new TBM2G series of frameless servomotors, introducing features that simplify the design of collaborative, surgical, aerospace and defense and other robots while delivering optimal performance in a lighter, more compact package. These new motors will complement Kollmorgen’s existing TBM and KBM series of frameless motors.
