Precision Gear Motor with Encoder For Electronic Inhaler

THE APPLICATION & SOLUTION Many companies are developing intelligent consumer medicine dosing devices, which enables monitored patients to take correctly dosed medicines, at home. Previously this industry designed purely mechanical dosing devices such as insulin EpiPens. The challenge with pure mechanical devices is that the Continue reading

Micro Linear Actuator Servo For Swarm Robot Research

THE APPLICATION & SOLUTION Current robotics research is generating some very unique applications, and one particularly interesting field is ‘swarm robotics’. These applications seek to mimic the behaviour of simple creatures such as ants, where the ‘intelligence’ is observable at the swarm/group level. Our customer for this Continue reading

Cogging torque in permanent magnet motors

Introduction Cogging is an undesirable characteristic of some permanent magnet motor designs. It’s also known in stepper motors as ‘detent’ or ‘no current’ torque. Cogging torque is generated when the sides of the rotor teeth line up with the sides of the stator teeth within Continue reading
