All of these technologies are driving Industry 4.0. The Awareness Applications for high-resolution, low-cost servo motors and the systems to operate and control them are 3D printing and drones. The Awareness Application for high torque density motors is electric vehicles. Combine these, and you have Autonomous Guided Vehicles and Articulated Cooperative Robots.

Are you an innovator or start-up robotics facility looking to differentiate your project with a new speed reducer that is more compact, higher precision, lightweight and higher torque density? Why design something new with something old?
Sierramotion is a custom motor and motion system engineering solutions firm. Our key differentiator is the ability to utilize our extensive experience to solve unique problems with proven engineered solutions.
There are many options to connect two rotating shafts together. The most obvious path is to use a rotary coupling. Unfortunately, while there are many couplings that can be purchased or made, choosing the right one takes some practice and a little bit of luck.
Robots have evolved from moving big things around in large areas to working collaboratively with humans in tight or uncaged environments. Robot designers are continuously challenged to reduce motorized joints’ size and weight while improving accuracy and response. This recording will discuss how direct drive motors coupled to high ratio precision gearing are an excellent choice to meet these challenges.
The selection of a proper coupling for a motion-control application requires consideration of numerous performance factors that must be taken into consideration for the coupling to work properly. These factors include including torque levels, the type and amount of shaft misalignment, inertia, torsional stiffness, rotational speed, space requirements, and others.
Through innovations in design, drive technology has taken a leap forward from mechanisms used since the 1950s. At the same time, design upgrades have allowed for smaller footprint, lighter weight, and higher torque densities.

WHITEPAPER | Today’s robots are slow, and their workspaces are limited. This statement may seem somewhat shocking. But while there have been tremendous advances lately in fields such as machine learning and vision systems, most articulated robots cannot move much faster than the earliest robots introduced in the 1950s. Why is this?
