Robotic Motion Solutions
Allied Motion’s brush and brushless motors and electronics are designed into robotic devices in a broad spectrum of applications from surgical robots to IED disposal robots to automated material handling robots.
Drive-by-wire technology, such as used in the Novanta concept car shown here, replaces the heavy, cumbersome power-hungry traditional mechanical and hydraulic components with accurate, efficient electro-mechanical control systems.
Shown here mounted on the Talon mobile base is a dual-arm robotic manipulator system that is capable of lifting 110 lb (50 kg) and handling a myriad of field missions with human-like handling abilities.
Advanced surface-mount (SMT) and through-hole component placement in the electronics assembly industry requires servo motor and drive systems with exceptional dynamic performance in order to achieve high throughput of up to nearly 100,000 CPH.
Improvised Explosive Device (IED) disposal robots perform a critical role on today’s battlefield. These robots need to be extremely rugged and reliable yet lightweight and easy to maintain in the field.
The Mid-Range Munition (MRM) is a precision guided munition fired from a tank. The MRM will autonomously attack battlefield targets with pinpoint accuracy at beyond line-of-sight ranges of 8+ km (5+ miles).
Accommodating multiple heavy payload types, and able to perform multiple mission types (explosive ordnance disposal, route clearing, reconnaissance, and more), the Warrior robot rapidly negotiates rough terrain and even climbs stairs while handling payloads up to 68 kg.
Robot-assisted surgery dates from the 1980’s, but tremendous strides in the technology of surgical robots have been made in the past decade with the introduction of new and better surgical robot systems.
