Easier and more reliable, with more torque than ever
The TPM gearmotor is made to be installed quickly and easily, coming with parameter data files and preassembled cables made to work with the motor and controller side. Setup time takes just a few minutes, and it works with more than 20 controllers worldwide. It is small, less than half the size of an ordinary motor and gear combination, with a geared motor based on an ac servo motor and high-precision planetary gearing. Its special design builds up a maximum output torque of 500 nm at a mass moment of inertia of 2.9 kgcm2. Its 128 mm size integrates individual components, so there's no need for a clamping hub and adapter plate. It offers high control response through its high rigidity, and is built to last more than 20,000 hours of operation.
The Space Kid, 11, will be one of the first civilians to have his design manufactured in space by NASA, thanks to the City X Project, which inspires kids to think about new 3D-printed inventions that could be useful for humans living in space.
