  • MDX Integrated Servo Motors


    Combining the high torque-density, low rotor-inertia design of J Series Servo Motors and the all-digital servo drive technology of SV200 Servo Drives, the MDX Integrated Servo Motors are all-in-one servo motors where the motor, encoder, drive and servo controller are integrated into a single motor package. There are no cables to connect the servo drive to the servo motor. Power, I/O, and communications can be plugged directly into the connectors on the motor.

  • New Products Showcased at Pack Expo


    At Pack Expo International 2018, Design World magazine visited the Applied Motion Products booth to learn about two of our latest product offerings: STF Stepper Drives and MDX Integrated Servo Motors. Watch the video below to learn some of the features, benefits, and relevant applications for these products.

  • AGV Drive Assembly Demo


    The AGV drive assembly demo highlights one of the solutions we have created specifically for mobile robots and AGVs. The assembly shown in the video is for a traction drive wheel and consists of an integrated servo motor, planetary gearhead, and drive wheel mounted directly to the gearhead’s output flange.

    Integrated servo motors include on-board motion control, I/O, and communications for direct connection to the on-board computer or controller of the mobile robot. No other external motor controller is required.

  • Multi-Axis Pick-and-Place Demo


    The multi-axis pick-and-place demo includes 9 axes of motion and highlights our capabilities in a number of ways. The demo includes at least one type of motor from each of our four primary product categories: StepSERVO motors, stepper motors, servo motors, and BLDC motors. The 9 axes of motion are synchronized via a Windows PC that streams Serial Command Language (SCL) commands to all axes over an RS-485 communications bus.

    The demo comprises four main functions:

  • XYZ Gantry Demo


    The XYZ gantry demo features 4 sets of StepSERVO drives and motors running coordinated motion in three axes. There are two motor and drive sets on the X and X’ axes, one on the Y axis, and a fourth on the Z axis. The synchronized motion commands are sent to the axes over the EtherCAT network.

    StepSERVO closed-loop technology improves every aspect of step motor performance by creating a peak torque range that increases acceleration and machine throughput. This is done while reducing overall current consumption in the motor for less heating and greater efficiency.
