Lumotive, the developer of Light Control Metasurface (LCM) beam steering chips enabling the next generation of 3D sensors, and Lumentum Holdings, a designer and manufacturer of innovative optical and photonic products, have jointly announced the availability of the M30 Reference Design, a complete software-defined sensor implementation to enable rapid adoption of LCM-based solid-state beam steering…
The AZ Series mini Driver from Oriental Motor works with a variety of AlphaStep AZ Series, DC input products. This driver can be controlled using EtherCAT or RS-485 communication and daisy chained to maximize design, space and improve installation time. The mini Driver is also designed to be close to the motor, making it ideal…
What is it? Motion simulators (shakers) reproduce movements of test objects and the simulators have high motion dynamics requirements. For example, they may repeatedly perform defined motion cycles for quality assurance and function monitoring of products in mobile use. This includes a range of motions of different magnitudes that are generated, for example, by a…
What is it? Faulhaber’s new 22L/32L Linear Actuator L series designed for applications in the industrial automation and also optics and photonics sectors. The linear actuator L series can be combined with a range of DC motors, 4-pole and 2-pole brushless motors or stepper motors and are optimized for the torque and speed range of…
LoPro linear actuators are actuated linear motion systems based upon DualVee guide wheel technology designed for smooth and quiet motion over long lengths.
At this week’s SPS 2022 trade fair in Nuremberg, Germany, maxon has announced the launch of five new products. All of the new products are designed for the efficient use of resources and compactness, for technical solutions that need to fit into compact and tiny spaces.
IKO spherical bushings are designed to address several different load handling challenges. These bushings feature inner and outer rings with spherical sliding surfaces, and can handle large radial loads and bidirectional axial loads at the same time.
Celera Motion’s Selective Compliance Robot Joint brings together several features to optimize performance in a wide variety of mechatronics applications.
Thomson Industries, which manufactures linear motion control solutions, has announced a line of precision ball splines that enable the delivery of rotary and linear motion on a single shaft. The new components give designers more flexibility to compress an assembly, extend a stroke, distribute a load or otherwise meet modern automation demands.
The Prodigy/CME Machine-Controller boards from Performance Motion Devices provide high-performance motion control for medical, scientific, automation, industrial, and robotic applications. Available in 1-, 2-, 3-, and 4-axis configurations, these boards support DC Brush, Brushless DC, and step motors and allow user-written C-language code to be downloaded and run directly on the board.
Harmonic Drive offers several different types of gear units for robotic applications. The company’s zero backlash component gears incorporate a precision cross roller output bearing and flange. Gear Units are very compact, robust and designed to be an easy-to-use gearhead/gearbox solution.
Robotics-World spoke with Daniel Vincz, CEO of Hungary-based Mollia, about their plan to improve humanoid robot kinematics through crowdsourced gamification, with the goal of producing robots that move more like humans.
Bell-Everman, which creates motion control technologies for automation and metrology tasks, has announced a new multi-axis transfer robot based on its ServoBelt backlash-free belt drive technology. The ServoBelt Arc Drive features custom-designed rotary and tilt axes that precisely position semiconductor glass panels.
Germany’s Neugart has announced the WPHLE, a right-angle variant that combines the advantages of its PLHE, Economy and Precision gearboxes. The new gearbox is axially space saving, economical, IP65-compliant and designed for high radial and axial forces at the output, Neugart said.
Allied Motion Technologies, which designs and manufacturers precision and specialty motion control products, has announced it acquired Airex LLC, a privately owned company with more than 70 years of history providing high-precision electromagnetic components for aerospace/defense, life sciences, semiconductor and other commercial industrial applications.
Celera Motion has announced it expanded its innovative direct drive motor platform, the Omni+ series. The series is designed for optimal system integration with several axial lengths and winding options, including a new size – the Omni+ 100 mm.
