Oriental Motor USA Corp. this week announced the DR Series, its latest compact electric cylinder motion-control products. The compact motor is suitable for products such as robots.
The DR Series is a linear motion actuator that incorporates a precision ball screw into a stepper motor. This is intended to reduce design work, save space, and minimize the number of parts needed for assembly. The DR Series is available with the 28mm AZ Series or two-phase PKP Series base motor, according to the Torrance, Calif.-based company.
It added that its latest electric cylinders offer guaranteed specifications and performance. Because of its complete and compact design, robotics and other designers can use the DR Series to reduce the size of their overall machines, said the company.
