Motion Control – The Mars helicopter continues to makes history – with maxon’s precision motors!

Motion Control – Mars helicopter has maxon’s motors!

Space fans are thrilled: NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter has successfully completed its pioneering flight on Mars. This is the first time in the history of powered, unmanned spaceflight that a device has flown in a controlled manner on another planet.

motion control - mars helicopter


motion control - maxonTaunton, MA — Motion Control Products – A short flight for “Ingenuity,” but a big success for unmanned space flight. NASA’s Mars helicopter flew over the surface of the Red Planet for about 40 seconds on Monday, April 19th and landed back on four legs. From NASA’s perspective, this is a historic event similar to the Wright brothers’ first controlled flight in 1903.

With the Mars helicopter, the concept of powered, unmanned, and autonomous flights on foreign planets is being tested. This is comparable to the first Mars rover “Sojourner”, which paved the way for scientific follow-up missions such as “Curiosity” and currently “Perseverance”. “Ingenuity” is about to complete several flights over a period of 30 days, each lasting up to 90 seconds and reaching a maximum altitude of five meters.

Motion Control – Maxon drives are on the Red Planet with NASA’s Perseverance Rover!

Motion Control – Application – Maxon drives on the Red Planet!

In July, NASA sent its fifth rover to Mars. Its main mission is to collect soil samples that will be analyzed on Earth at a later time. The rover also carried a helicopter that is performing flights on the Red Planet. maxon’s precision DC and BLDC motors are used for numerous mission-critical tasks.

motion control - maxon motors

 


motion control - maxon motorTaunton, MA — Motion Control Products & Application – maxon drive systems are very familiar with Mars. Our drives have been used in virtually every successful robotic mission over the last three decades. There are now more than 100 of them on the Red Planet and there are likely to be more soon. The launch window for NASA’s next mission opens on July 22nd. An Atlas V rocket will launch the new Perseverance rover on its way to Mars, where it will be searching for signs of previous life on the planet. Its most important job is to take multiple soil samples, seal them in containers and deposit them on the surface of Mars so that a future mission can return them to Earth. Several maxon motors will be used to handle the samples inside the rover. For example, maxon DC motors are installed in the robotic arm, which moves the samples from station to station. Maxon motors will also be used for sealing and depositing the sample containers.

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), is carrying out the mission, and have asked maxon to produce 10 drives for the rover. As with almost all previous Mars missions, these drives are based on standard products from maxon’s catalog with modifications. For the first time, NASA is using brushless DC motors, including: nine EC 32 flat and one EC 20 flat in combination with a GP 22 UP planetary gearhead. Working closely with JPL specialists, maxon engineers developed the drives over several years and tested them thoroughly to achieve the highest standards of quality. “We’ve learned a lot from this exciting project,” says Robin Phillips, head of the maxon SpaceLab. “We now have very broad expertise in space applications and have established quality assurance processes that meet the expectations of the industry. Customers from other industries such as the medical sector, where requirements are often similar, can also benefit from this know-how.”  Space missions place the highest demands on drive systems. This includes vibrations during the rocket launch, vacuum during the journey, impacts on landing, and the harsh conditions on the surface of Mars, where temperatures fluctuate between -125 and +20 degrees Celsius and dust penetrates everywhere

Maxon DC motors control the Mars helicopter.

motion control - maxon mars motor

The Perseverance rover is expected to land on Mars on February 18, 2021 – but it won’t be alone. A drone helicopter called Ingenuity will be attached to the underside of the rover. It weighs 1.8 kilograms, is solar powered and will perform several short flights, as well as take aerial images. The main goal of this experiment is to test the concept for further drones of this kind. maxon has six brushed DCX motors with a diameter of 10 millimeters controlling the tilt of the rotor blades and the direction of flight. The drives are very light, dynamic and highly energy-efficient. These properties are crucial, because every gram counts on the Mars helicopter. Flying on Mars is not easy. The atmosphere is extremely thin, roughly comparable to the conditions on Earth at an altitude of 30 kilometers. The drone helicopter has flown in a simulated test environment in the JPL laboratory. Whether it will lift off on Mars remains to be seen. First, other obstacles, such as the rocket launch, must be successful. “We hope that everything goes well and that we’ll soon see our drives in action on Mars,” says maxon CEO Eugen Elmiger. “We’re all keeping our fingers crossed.”

Motion Control – Maxon Gearheads – Great power in Compact Form!

Motion Control – Maxon Gearheads – Great power in Compact Form!

motion control - gearhead cutawayMicro gearheads from maxon with improved efficiency.

 


motion control - maxonTaunton, MA — Motion Control Products – Maxon has developed a unique upgrade in the form of a new product series for its standard micro gearhead: A wide range of performance improvements offer new opportunities.

The first ideas for the UP-gearhead were inspired by ESA’s Mars project ‘ExoMars’ and NASA’s ‘Mars 2020’ project, where there was a need to ensure the highest possible availability even in extreme environmental conditions.

This also directly affects further parameters of the drive system: Given the same input power, ie. using the same motor and the same motor control system, the gearhead can deliver 30% more torque. Or put another way: the same output power will require 23% less input power for the drive. This results in longer potential action time until the next charge cycle, particularly for battery-driven applications.

As a result of the reduction in the input power required, the used motor can in addition be operated at a more favorable operating point. This factor also improves the efficiency of the motor, and with it the whole drive system.

As an alternative, smaller and/or lighter motors and electronics can be used, with advantages not only in terms of weight but also in terms of cost.

motion control - gearhead groupSignificantly longer gearhead service life: as outlined above, friction in the planetary wheel – axle system could be considerably reduced. At the same time heat generation from operating the drive is noticeably reduced because there is less friction power. Particularly in applications where temperatures should not exceed a certain level (example: medical power tools), there is improved power output.

The durability of the lubricant plays an important part in terms of wear and tear on the gearhead’s mechanical components. The greater the thermal stress, the more quickly its lubricating properties are lost, and the earlier and more serious the abrasive behaviors in the mechanical system. The abraded metal particles also lead to an agglutination of the lubricant, potentially resulting in a breakdown in its lubricating action.

If the heat feed is checked, then in otherwise identical operating conditions a longer service life can be achieved. This effect is an outstanding feature of the GPX UP: the service life is 5 times greater compared with similar traditional maxon gearheads and when compared to competitors’ models currently on the market it is 11 times greater.

As an alternative to longer service life, as a result of significant improvements in the torque to diameter ratio (power density), much smaller and lighter gearheads can be used.

The advantages of the new design are not only producing improvements in the gearhead specification’s individual parameters. Further new applications for the GPX UP gearheads can also be seen, in particular the so-called force-feedback appliations.

With these applications the advantages of the engineering of the GPX UP version come into play. The use of mounted planetary wheels makes smooth inverse rotation of the gearheads possible in normal operation and, if necessary, can provide operator feedback. Quantifiable and tangible mechanical feedback is in fact conveyed to the force and torque elements. To achieve this, the gearhead needs to be reversible, meaning the torque and changes to the torque which are in contact with the output side, need to be conveyed proportionally to the drive side.

The following example demonstrates this application: In electronic flight control (Fly-by-Wire), the pilot’s steering movements are not transmitted to the actuators mechanically or hydraulically, as in conventional systems, but electronically. But with this the operator initially loses all tangible feedback on their steering movements. With the deployment of a drive in the control column, the electronically transmitted feedback is mechanically conveyed to the pilot’s hand. Inverse rotation is particularly necessary in normal operation, because the additional drive installed should not hinder the movements of the control column.

motion control - gearhead applicationA similar process applies to the innovative surgery robots in the micro- and telesurgery range. Here it is also crucial that the operator receives direct and tangible feedback about the movements they have performed or healthy tissue that should be left untouched. Reversible drives are also in demand in plant construction. In setting mode the axles need to be movable from the output side, without current.

The new GPX UP models combine a range of important product advantages, such as: More power, more torque, improved efficiency, considerably longer service life, reduction in heat generation, less weight in the drive system as well as the additional reversibility function in multistate gearheads.

Taking only the first two factors into account, we might refer to them as ultra-power gearheads. But with the other properties listed here, we can easily coin a new title: ultra performace.

Ultra Performance GPX gearheads from maxon are already available in GPX22 UP und GPX32 UP diameters, and like all ‘X-series’ they are customizable and available to order online. The GPX42 UP version will follow in Spring of 2020. In addition, customizable gearheads in the Ultra Performance series are now available in sizes Ø 8 – 58 mm.

motion control harmonic drive servo actuator

 


Vaughan, Ontario, Canada — Motion Control Components — Introducing Dual Absolute encoder versions of the FHA-C mini actuator. Featuring BiSS-C Harmonic Drive fha-24v-002bi-directional communication for both encoders. The dual encoders are incorporated in essentially the same package size as the long-standing FHA-C mini single incremental encoder version. Without increasing the size, the dual absolute encoder offers single turn absolute position at the output, without the need for battery back-up. Panel mount connectors come standard, and customers can choose between 4 exit options.

The FHA-C mini Series is a family of extremely compact actuators that deliver high torque with exceptional accuracy and repeatability. The actuator combines a high precision Harmonic Drive® gear component with a pancake brushless servo motor. A single turn 14 bit (16384 cpr) gear output encoder has been integrated along with a single turn 14 bit (16384 cpr) motor input encoder providing a true absolute encoder that does not require a battery within 360° of rotation of the output. Typical multi-turn encoders monitoring the motor input shaft require a battery to store the current position when power is lost to the system; however, the dual absolute encoder overcomes this need. In other words, No Battery Required. When power is restored the actuator knows its position.

Features include:

  • Zero backlash
  • Incremental, Absolute or Dual Absolute Encoder
  • 24VDC winding
  • High-torque/weight and torque/volume ratio

Motion Control – Two Way 3-to-1 “Traction Drive” Speed Reducers Feature 98% Efficiency!

Motion Control - Rolling Motion Industries 2 Way Speed Reducer is 98 Percent Efficient

Motion Control - RMI Drives-Logo

Motion Control Speed Reducer

North Babylon, NY – Motion Control Components – Rolling Motion Industries (RMI) is changing the world of mechanical power transmission! New Two Way MAR-17-2-3:1 and the MAR-23-2-3:1 Speed Reducers using Traction Drive Technology leveraged engineering fluids and precision manufacturing with a simple design that features exceptional reliability and up 98% efficiency! The MAR17-2-3:1 Speed Reducer is designed for input speeds up to 3600 rpm with 10 to 20 in/lbs of torque, and the MAR-23-2-3:1 Speed Reducer is also rated for speeds to 3600 rpm but with an input of 20 to 30 in/lbs of torque.

 

Motion Control Technology –

The propriety engineered traction fluid with a coefficient of friction of just 0.1 to 0.12 transmits torque between the four driving and driven elements. The traction fluid continuously changes from liquid-to-solid-to-liquid in the microscopic spaces between the driving and driven elements. Even though there is no metal-to-metal contact there is no slippage! These compact speed reducers are quiet, generating up to 72% less heat even after weeks of continuous operation, and offer thousands of hours of trouble free operation, as the traction fluid cools and lubricates the traction drive speed reducers. Having low vibration, and no torque losses from 10 to 3000 rpm, these 3:1 2 way speed reducers let motors operate at peak efficiency while having a damping effect on a motor’s torque ripple. The speed reducers are available with an optional overriding clutch to protect the components as they can not be back driven. Incorporating standard NEMA mounting dimensions, they can be easily integrated into new and existing applications. Creating 38% lower dB at 3000 rpm than conventional gearboxes these people friendly speed reducers are ideal for use in medical equipment such as mobile hospital equipment and dialysis machines as well as pumps, blowers, fans, turbo and super chargers, conveyers, HVAC systems, and other power transmission and motion applications.

About Rolling Motion Industries (RMI)- About Rolling Motion Industries (RMI): In 1993 John Pawloski and his brother Ray took over the family business, Jewelers Machinist Co. They realized they needed to switch from outdated conventional thread grinders to CNC thread grinders. As a result, Jewelers Machinist Co is recognized as the source of some of the most complex thread grinding in the industry. The concept for the RMI traction drive came from John in 2007. Working in that high precision industry aided John in the development of the RMI Traction Drive. In the years that followed, the design of the individual components and formula of the engineered traction fluid were finalized, testing was completed, a patent granted, and production begun. The RMI Traction Drive is one of the most efficient ways to transmit power from one point to another. Utilizing rolling motion, RMI is able to transfer power at various ratios with minimal energy loss. Tested against V-belt, direct drive, chain, and gearbox setups, RMI Traction Drives offer energy saving benefits through true efficiency rating percentages up to 98%. The high efficiency of the traction drive allows electric motors to run at their peak efficiency ranges. There are many applications where it can be used from automotive to industrial to medical. The RMI traction drive can be used in the electric vehicle market and precision applications. Offering benefits such as low backlash and no back driving, it set a new standard for “high efficiency”.

Quiet 3-to-1 Speed Reducers Using Traction Drive Technology Feature 98% Efficiency!

motion control speed reducer

 

RMI Drives-Logo

North Babylon, NY – Rolling Motion Industries (RMI) has released for production the next two in it’s series of highly efficient speed reducers. These 3-to-1 speed reducers use “game changing” traction drive technology. The MAR-17-1-3.1 and the MAR-23-1-3.1 Speed Reducers feature 98% efficiency and with only 6 moving parts they typically out last conventional gearboxes and speed reducers by a factor of 3. The MAR17-1-3.1 Speed Reducer is designed for input speeds up to 3600 rpm with 10 to 20 in/lbs of torque, and the MAR-23-1-3.1 Speed Reducer is also rated for speeds to 3600 rpm but with an input of 20 to 30 in/lbs of torque. As the output speed is reduced by a factor of 3 the output torque increases by a factor of 3.

Using an engineered traction fluid with a coefficient of friction of just 0.1 to 0.12 that cools and lubricates the traction drive these high efficiency speed reducers generate up to 72% less heat even after days of continuous operation. There is no slippage or lost motion between the input and output shafts even though there is no metal to metal contact as the traction fluid is continuously changing from liquid-to-solid-to-liquid as the driving and driven elements interface in the drive. Creating 38% lower dB at 3000 rpm than conventional gearboxes these people friendly speed reducers are ideal for use in medical equipment such as mobile hospital equipment and dialysis machines as well as pumps, blowers, fans, turbo and super chargers, conveyers, HVAC systems, and other power transmission and motion applications.

Having low vibration, and no torque losses from 10 to 3000 rpm, these speed reducers featuring traction drive technology lets a motor operate at peak efficiency while having a damping effect on a motor’s torque ripple. These revolutionary speed reducers are available with an optional overriding clutch. Incorporating standard NEMA mounting dimensions, these speed reducers can be easily integrated into new and existing applications.

About Rolling Motion Industries (RMI)-

About Rolling Motion Industries (RMI): In 1993 John Pawloski and his brother Ray took over the family business, Jewelers Machinist Co. They realized they needed to switch from outdated conventional thread grinders to CNC thread grinders. As a result, Jewelers Machinist Co is recognized as the source of some of the most complex thread grinding in the industry. The concept for the RMI traction drive came from John in 2007. Working in that high precision industry aided John in the development of the RMI Traction Drive.

In the years that followed, the design of the individual components and formula of the engineered traction fluid were finalized, testing was completed, a patent granted, and production begun. The RMI Traction Drive is one of the most efficient ways to transmit power from one point to another. Utilizing rolling motion, RMI is able to transfer power at various ratios with minimal energy loss. Tested against V-belt, direct drive, chain, and gearbox setups, RMI Traction Drives offer energy saving benefits through true efficiency rating percentages up to 98%. The high efficiency of the traction drive allows electric motors to run at their peak efficiency ranges.

There are many applications where it can be used from automotive to industrial to medical. The RMI traction drive can be used in the electric vehicle market and precision applications. Offering benefits such as low backlash and no back driving, it set a new standard for “high efficiency”.
