Micromotors for Industrial Robot applications

Embarking on the intersection of technology and automation, robots stand as versatile and programmable entities crafted to autonomously or semi-autonomously execute tasks. Employing an intricate network of axial or radial micromotors, sensors and actuators, these mechanical marvels navigate and interact with their surroundings. Across diverse industries, ranging from manufacturing and healthcare to exploration and entertainment, robots play a pivotal role in revolutionizing operational landscapes .​

End-Effector Actuators

End-Effectors play a crucial role in automation, utilizing motors to grasp and manipulate objects. These devices, powered by electricity, are vital for automated handling in industrial and robotic applications, with the motors ensuring precise and controlled actions for efficient manipulation.

Benefits of using Mirmex motors

  • Compact Design: Mirmex Motors have a more compact design compared to their wire-based peers. This will facilitate integration into the limited space available within gripper mechanisms, ensuring minimal impact on the overall size and weight of the automation system.
  • Durability and Longevity: Because all the copper fibers in the windings are positioned exactly the same way, Mirmex Motors are more robust and durable to withstand the repetitive and demanding nature of industrial applications, ensuring a long operational lifespan.
  • High Precision: Mirmex Motors provide precise control for the opening and closing mechanisms of the gripper, allowing for accurate and controlled manipulation of objects. A precision of up to 24 bits is achievable which is equivalent to cutting a pie into 16 million exactly equal pieces.

Industrial Robot Motorization

Programmable machines known as industrial robots are specifically designed to automate and carry out tasks in industrial settings, performing activities such as assembly, welding, painting, or packaging. These robots are equipped with sensors and mechanical arms, often used to increase efficiency, precision, and safety in manufacturing processes.

Benefits of using Mirmex Motors

  • High Torque: Industrial robots often handle heavy payloads and encounter resistance in their movements. Mirmex Motors deliver more torque to handle these loads and maintain precise control.
  • Compact and Lightweight Design: Mirmex Motors have a more compact form factor than their peers and are lightweight to facilitate integration into the limited space available within the robot structure without adding excessive weight.
  •  Durability and Longevity: Because all the copper fibers in the windings are positioned exactly the same way, Mirmex motors are more resilient and durable, capable of enduring the rigorous and frequently challenging conditions of industrial robot operations in manufacturing settings. This ensures a reduction in downtime and maintenance needs, contributing to the overall efficiency of the robotic system.
