Schönaich/Croglio – 2014-09-01 At the end of May 2014, the Rosetta space probe will swing into an orbit around the comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko in order to, after more closely approaching it in August, map its surface and thus prepare for the landing of Philae. This ballistic lander, weighing 100 kg, is supposed to land on the comet in November and – thanks to FAULHABER drives – securely position itself. After an adventurous journey of over 10 years through outer space, this is a first in the history of space travel.
Brushless DC-Servomotor Series 2057...BHS The new FAULHABER 2057…BHS are designed to address the specific requirements of the medical and dental hand piece markets. The high efficiency slotless design features smooth speed control with a wide continuous duty speed range up to 40000 rpm while remaining cool to the touch. The motors are capable of handling intermittent overload conditions to address highly dynamic motion over shorter cycle times.
Evolution of humanoid Robotics Robots explore other planets, produce car parts and vacuum dust and are today almost omnipresent. They do not, however, usually look like the science fiction fan might imagine: they move around as a flat trolley on wheels or are permanently installed as bulky machines in industrial halls. Humanoid robots with eyes and ears, arms and legs are still in their early stages of development. A division of Dongbu Robot is working in this field. As muscles for its mechanical people, the Korean company uses motors from FAULHABER.
