Robotics

Electromate helps robot manufacturer OEMs bring best-of-class robotic solutions to life.  We have positioned ourselves as an industry leader in robotics since the early 2000's, partnering with leading motion control component providers to offer OEMs a unique combination of products.

These include:

  • Zero backlash gearing
  • Flat and frameless motors
  • Servo drives with unmatched power density
  • Miniature absolute encoders
  • A controls architecture to bring it all together.

Our team of technical specialists helps from concept to completion, drawing upon decades of expertise in the design of articulated joints and other robotic axes. If you are designing an Articulated robot, a Cartesian robot, a SCARA or Delta bot, we can help. Whether you are a university startup with an idea and a vision, or an established robot manufacturer that wants improved performance, we will work with you to make it happen.

Featured Robotic Solution

maxon's Modular Integrated Robot Joint

maxon's first positioning controllers in a round design with a centered hole. These are especially suitable for integration into articulated joints, wheel drives, and robotics.

They combine the technology of a Harmonic Drive Gearbox + Maxon EC Flat motor + Posital absolute encoder kit + Maxon Epos4 disk drive.

The new controllers are available in both a CANopen version and an EtherCAT version.

They can be purchased in pre-configured models, as well as customized to fit your solution.

Robotics Focused Whitepapers

Flat Motors for Service Robots

The Jaco2 robotic arm, created by Kinova Robotics, is a lightweight, quiet, and simple to use product for the service industry. This robotic arm is designed to be mounted to a wheelchair and offer assistance to the user. For this reason, weight was a crucial factor in order to avoid tipping over the wheelchair.

Delta Robots with Maxon Motor

Asyril develops and integrates mechatronic systems for fast, flexible, and automatic handling of small components. They recently revolutionized the market using Delta robots with Maxon motors to ensure highly precise and dynamic movements.

DARwIn-OP Robots with Maxon Motor

DARwIn-OP (Dynamic Anthropomorphic Robot with Intelligence-Open Platform) robots were created mainly for research and educational purposes, however they can be programmed by the user to do whatever the user wishes with an open source system. They can even play in (and win) robotic soccer competitions! Their quick and precise motions can be attributed to Maxon motor components.

Humanoid Robots with Maxon Motor

In China, humanoid robots now exist with the ability to nod, blink, and move their arms and legs. These motions are made possible by Maxon Motor drives. These humanoid robots seem straight out of a science fiction novel but create a unique interplay of art and technology.

Autonomous Intelligent Vehicles for Logistics

YLOG build autonomous robots that can be used to transport containers for logistics companies. These robots, or Autonomous Intelligent Vehicles (AiV) help reduce energy costs while maximizing the use of your space. Within these AiVs are Maxon drives, ensuring these robots move with precision.
