The Key Components Behind the Robots
Date: 5/8/2014
Sponsors:
Maxon Precision Motors, Schneider Electric
View archived webinar
What’s behind every great robot? A great motor or even multiple motors, for starters. It also involves the bearings, cables, drives, and controllers, and in some cases, linear actuators. Whether your robot is being deployed on a factory floor, in an operating room, or in one of the now-famous drones, it’s these technologies that serve as the differentiators. In fact, robotics can be in applications that range from the very coarse to the very fine. For that reason, the types of motors and other components must also vary widely.
