New Planetary Robotic Gearbox Available from Electromate!

Electromate - Motion Control Planetary Robotic Gearboxes

Patented design guarantees that backlash will not increase over the life time of the gearbox










Vaughan, Ontario, Canada -- Motion Control Components -- The GPL-V (shaft) and GPL-H (hollow) are our lowest backlash (≤ 0.1 arc minute ) planetary gearboxes for horizontal and vertical robotic applications. A patented design guarantees that the backlash will not increase over the life time of the gearbox. Very high tilting rigidity results in excellent positioning accuracy with a rated 20,000 hours which is over 3x longer than comparable gearboxes in the market.

The noise level of 65dB compared to 69dB of comparable models makes it ideal for MRI applications where low noise levels are critical.

New Power-Off Brakes for NEMA 17 & NEMA 23 Servo and Step Motors!

Motion Control Power Off Brakes from Servo2Go










Greenville, DE —-Motion Control Components - The MPC is a power-off brake module with an output shaft. The unit mounts directly on to a NEMA C-Face servo or stepper motor and the output can also be coupled to a NEMA C-Face gear reducer.

This brake is designed to decelerate or hold an inertial load when the voltage is turned off. When voltage is applied, the friction disc is released and the brake is free of torque.

Motion Control - High Torque Rotary Voice Coil Actuators from H2W Technologies!

H2W High Torque Voice Coil Actuators










Santa Clarita, CA —-- Motion Control - H2W Technologies has developed several high torque rotary voice coil actuators, otherwise known as a limited angle torque motors or LATs. The model TWR-015-346-2RC was designed to allow for a low moving mass (68 grams per coil) and inertia, as well as dual independent coils to allow for two independent motion profiles or couple the coils together to double the torque output. This rotary voice coil actuator can generate a continuous torque of 185 in-oz [1.29 N-m] and a peak torque of 555 in-oz [3.88 N-m] at a duty cycle of 10% (i.e. 1 second on, and 9 seconds off) in each coil on a 4 inch [102 mm] rotation arm. By coupling the coils together, the continuous torque doubles to 370 in-oz [2.58 N-m] with a peak torque of 1110 in-oz [7.75 N-m] at a 10% duty cycle.
