ELECTROMATE Kollmorgen TBM2G series of frameless servo motors has features that simplify the design of collaborative, surgical, aerospace and defense and other robots while delivering optimal performance in a lighter, more compact package. Products complement firm’s existing TBM and KBM series of frameless motors. Product series provides high-performance torque in a compact electromagnetics package. The next-generation devices enable robots with lower joint weight, higher load-carrying capacity, improved energy efficiency, lower thermal rise, and faster, smoother movements. Motors remove this limitation through advanced windings and materials that deliver industry-leading power, torque and efficiency consistently across a wide speed range. Units also remove the sizing limitation that engineers often face when using off-the-shelf strain wave gearing, also known in the robotics market as harmonic gearing.
