The BLH Series compact BLDC motors and drivers have been around for a long time, and there is a good reason. Customers seem to favor the combination of a highly efficient, compact motor and a light weight board type driver that is easy to use. Having a high torque, flat style hollow shaft gearhead as an option also helps in increasing torque as well as minimizing footprint.
Welcome to Oriental Motor's "Engineering Notes" Blog:
Products and technology are only valuable when coupled with skilled people and services to support them. Since 1978, ORIENTAL MOTOR U.S.A. CORP. has been building a service and support system to better serve customers. It is our goal to provide the best product and service from the design phase, through the sale and beyond.

In the world of industrial robotics, there are several types of robots typically offering multiple axes of motion for tasks such as parts assembly, material handling, or pick and place operations. These include articulated robots, cartesian/gantry robots, SCARA robots, and Delta robots. Variations of end effectors such as grippers, welders or part rotators can be mounted on the end of the arm to perform different tasks. Depending on number of axes or load capacity, costs can easily add up. Limiting the operation range for these robotic axes of motion is an easy way to prevent costly problems or safety issues later.

In the market of electric motors, there are products designed for general purpose applications, and there are motors designed for specialized applications, such as automated guided vehicles (AGVs) or autonomous mobile robots (AMRs). While standard, general-purpose motors work for most applications such as factory automation, sometimes, it may help accelerate your design cycle by going with a motor system that already offers the features that you are planning to design into your machine. In this post, we will summarize some of these features.
