maxon Robotics feature: Part 5

Laboratory robots: the maxon motor drive solution.

For speed and position-critical dispensing actions, maxon offer a DCX motor with high overload capacity, small in size, linear curve for minute control and high CPT.

Across the many and varied robotics applications be they surgical, UAV, humanoid, collaborative or industrial robots, maxon motor offers motor and drive solutions.

One special type of robot found in a laboratory is the Pipetting machine. Used by small molecular biology labs for flexible liquid handling through to large scale active-ingredient screening by multinational pharmaceutical companies, the one common trait of these machines is the speed and position-critical dispensing actions. Handling hundreds of samples all at once, some equipped with numerous pipetting heads, the speed of these machines is increasing and the fluid quantities dispensed is becoming smaller and smaller. Essential to this is a highly dynamic and precise drive.

The maxon motor drive solution

Especially suited to this task offering very low instances of inertia and ironless windings with falter-free movements. The brushed DCX motor. Low noise output. Configurable to a planetary gearhead and encoder – the GPX 12 and ENX 10 EASY Encoder. This combination can be configured online and shipped in 11 days. The motor has a high overload capacity, is small in diameter for space critical machines, has a linear curve for minute control characteristics and a high level of precision up to 1024 counts per turn.
