PK-M Series sizes 17 and 23 high-torque, hybrid step motors offer step-angle resolutions of 0.9-degrees full step and 0.45-degrees per half step. The motors also maintain holding torques of 22 to 44.4 oz-inches for the size 17 and 54.2 to 187.5 oz-inches for the size 23. The PK-M Series higher-step resolution results in an unloaded step accuracy of 0.05 degrees. Running torques of 20 oz-inches at 2,500 pps are developed for the smallest PK-M model, the PK243M-01BA, and up to 175 oz-inches at 1,100 pps for the largest PK-M family member, the PK268M-03BA.

Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
