For applications where torque needs to be limited, an external mechanical torque limiter is typically required in addition to the motor system. When the torque exceeds the limit, the torque limiter will either decouple the load or limit the torque by slipping. An electric motor system's built-in torque limit function can simplify machine designs by eliminating this extra component.

Robotic grippers are typically used to grip parts for transport. The driving force behind a gripper can be pneumatic, hydraulic, or electric. Which type is best for gripping?
Automation is great for repetitive tasks, such as test fixtures for a process that has to repeated. In this post, we will explain how to perform a reciprocating motion (back and forth cycles) with a product that does not require a PLC or external presence sensors, which can help speed up design cycles.
