Original RoboDrive frameless servo motors Designed for demanding applications

RoboDrive technology from TQ 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 servo motor 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.
