Kollmorgen Robotics

When working on projects involving robotics, two of Kollmorgen's strong product lines to consider are the KBM and TBM Series motors. Click the tabs below to learn more about each series and please contact us with any questions.

 

The KBM™ Series is designed to be directly embedded in your machine, using the machine’s own bearings to support the rotor. There are a huge selection of standard motors with the ability to quickly and cost-effectively incorporate co-engineered modifications. This allows you to choose an exact-fit motor that provides the highest performance in the most compact space.


Features

  • Fully encapsulated stator windings
  • 155°C internal winding temperature continuous capability
  • PTC thermistor (avalanche-type) overload protection
  • Rare-earth neodymium iron boron magnets
  • Fail-safe bands over rotor magnets
  • RoHS compliant
  • UL and CE agency facilitation
  • Optimizations include rotor hub dimensions, stack length, diameter, mounting features, windings, insulation, connection type and much more
  • Optional latching digital Hall effect sensors are pre-aligned and factory-installed with added axial rotor length to achieve proper triggering

Benefits

  • Direct load connection eliminates maintenance of gearboxes, belts or pulleys
  • Zero backlash and compliance provides more responsive system performance
  • Eliminates coupling devices, reducing overall machine size
  • Embedded motor enables compact machine design, helps protect your intellectual property
  • Huge selection of standard motors and co-engineered modifications for an exact fit, without the time, expense and risk of a fully customized motor
  • Modify any standard product’s characteristics – mechanical dimensions, electrical options and connections, thermal and winding optimization for acceleration or deceleration, torque, speed, power, smoothness, and more – to meet your specific needs.
