How does a stepper motor work?

Stepper motors are the one of the most widely used motor type due to its simplicity and position control capability.

Powerful motor created for British Antarctic Survey

British Antarctic Survey contacted maxon motor uk with a requirement for a powerful motor with high torque, in a small diameter, to fit in their ice core drill. They needed to be able to vary the speed and get constant torque even at a slow speed; yet still be able to get the maximum torque.

Direct drive robotic arms support lean automation

Expanding its range of cost-effective modular robolink  systems, igus  introduces the robolink D direct drive articulated arm – a tougher, more durable solution compared with remote drive versions – supporting lean automation. Typical robotic applications are repetitive tasks, such as on assembly lines and pick-and-place equipment. To support this, the new robolink D system is completely modular due to the direct drive situated within each joint, which helps achieve significant cost savings.

ECS improves maintenance operations at Colwick Sluice

The Colwick Sluice in Nottingham is a key component of the flood defence apparatus designed to protect the city; one that the Environment Agency (EA) has been upgrading in order to improve the efficiency of essential maintenance work. As part of this project ECS Engineering Services has installed a new semi-automated stoplog deployment system which provides the EA with ‘dry’ access to the sluice gate mechanism, speeding up operations considerably.
