TQ & KUKA
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.
RoboDrive technology has its origins in the Institute for Robotics and Mechatronics at the German Aerospace Center (DLR). Researchers there developed a new 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.
