Frameless servo motors: technology and history It all started at the German Aerospace Center (DLR)

RoboDrive technology has its origins in the Institute for Robotics and Mechatronics at the German Aerospace Center (DLR). Researchers there developed a new frameless motor technology – a servomotor with outstanding power density and high torque coupled with compact size and lightweight construction. These motors also offered excellent speed stability, dynamic response and thermal connectivity, making them a pioneering technology ideally suited for use in robotics.


Back on Earth, the leading robot manufacturer KUKA recognized the potential of our technology. Today, TQ motors are used in the KUKA LBR iiwa – the first sensitive, collaborative robot to be mass produced.

TQ-RoboDrive - Outstanding dynamic response, maximum design freedom

Outstanding dynamic response, maximum design freedom

The optimization of dynamic response, reliability, precision and lightweight construction has resulted in very compact frameless motors that meet the specific requirements of a variety of customers. Measuring just 15 to 115 millimeters, these stator-rotor installation kits have a very large hollow shaft and can be enhanced with safety brakes and absolute encoders from our product portfolio.
