What do big future trends mean for small drives?

February 23, 2024

Future trends describe the changes and developments in all areas of society, the economy or technology that triggers a new movement or direction. Futurology analyzes these and uses certain boundary conditions to allow statements to be made about the future development. Among current megatrends are, for example, globalization, decarbonization, digitization, and individualization, but also detoxing, i.e., the removal of toxins, as well as simplexity, which refers to the simplification of complex structures. Because such trends have consequences for all areas of life, an increasing number of companies are addressing this topic to better prepare themselves for the future. Read more

Drive systems for Conveyors

January 6, 2024

The assembly line, introduced by Henry Ford in mass production, was only the beginning. Nowadays, automation in industrial production is impossible without conveyor belts. That applies even more for smaller parts, where tailor made systems move parts made from glass, plastic or metal, regardless if the objects are paper clips, pills, screws or baked goods. Robust materials and long-lasting, maintenance-free microdrives from FAULHABER guarantee high availability over long periods of time. The small parts conveyor belts are used in a wide range of industries. Read more

Compact Automation

December 2, 2023

A “compact automation” is a mechatronic system that performs a whole series of consecutive production steps autonomously. “Compact” refers to the small dimensions, in the millimeter and centimeter range, of the products to be processed. Designing and constructing such systems is one of the core activities of the Austrian machine manufacturer STIWA. Its modular system LTM-CI has been optimized for small parts assembly. Linear and rotating micromotors from FAULHABER perform key tasks in these systems. Read more

Exoskeletons & Prosthetics

February 3, 2023

Prosthetic devices are – in contrast to powered orthotics or exoskeletons – designed to replace a missing body part. Patients are relying on prosthetics as they have lost a limb due to trauma, disease (e.g. diabetes or cancer) or being born without it due to congenital disorders. Powered orthotics or exoskeletons however, are designed to support their users through human augmentation. In both cases, users can always rely on FAULHABER’s extended portfolio as it offers ideal drive solutions for upper and lower limb prosthetics, powered orthotics and exoskeletons. Read more

What are the challenges and trends in sewer robotics?

January 7, 2023

The machines and devices that work in the sewer require sturdy and durable technology on the smallest possible footprint. Standard solutions are rarely feasible, which is why we develop most of the components ourselves. In terms of operation, we are expecting an increasing shortage of expert personnel. So the idea is to replace humans with intelligent technology that can be operated without specialized training. The trend leans towards automatic traveling to the damaged location and automatic repair. Read more

Metrologie en Testen

December 16, 2022

De machines zijn gereserveerd en gereed om de bestelde batch te produceren. Maar eerst moeten we er zeker van zijn dat de grondstof daadwerkelijk aan de specificaties voldoet. Is de hardheid van het materiaal voldoende? Klopt de chemische samenstelling? En blijven de afmetingen van de geproduceerde onderdelen binnen de tolerantielimieten? Dergelijke vragen kunnen worden beantwoord met behulp van half- of volautomatische testapparatuur. Hiervoor moeten elementen zoals lenzen, monsterhouders en sondes met de grootst mogelijke precisie en herhaalnauwkeurigheid worden gepositioneerd. Deze taak wordt met consistente betrouwbaarheid uitgevoerd door aandrijfsystemen die zijn opgebouwd uit motoren, tandwielkasten, encoders en spindels van FAULHABER. Lees verder

Surgical Robots

July 9, 2022

Using robotic surgery, trained physicians perform complex surgical procedures with greater precision, flexibility and control than would be possible with conventional techniques. Procedures are performed either through multiple access points (multi-port access) or through a single access point (single incision port). Surgical robots range from hand-held tools, some of which integrate multiple drive systems and are designed for one specific surgical method, to fixed multi-axis robotic systems that can be used universally for a variety of medical procedures. The latter consist of robotic arms coupled with precision instruments, high-quality camera systems used directly on site inside the patient, and the computer-based robot control system. Advancements in the areas of artificial intelligence and augmented reality will continue to drive in acceptance of such surgical robots. Read more

How do you feed 10 billion people?

June 24, 2022

“Smart farming” is an important part of the answer to this existential question: Extremely high efficiency in food production through the targeted use of the latest technology, computer-supported and – where possible – fully automatic. Seeds are individually and precisely placed; fruits carefully picked by mechanical grippers; fertilizers and plant protection products applied in small doses and in a targeted manner. These operations require a large number of small electric motors that are both robust and powerful. Read more

0.001 ml of fluid precision-dosed
