The new Tuaka robotic actuators from Sumitomo Drive Technologies intelligently combine precision gearing with servo motor and optional features, making the actuator one of the smallest solutions of its kind. The plug-and-play actuator provides robotics manufacturers with a reliable, complete solution for any application. Due to the sensor technology and hermomanagement, the product is also suitable for human-machine collaboration in cobots. Visitors to automatica can see this for themselves at Sumitomo Drive Technologies and see the actuators live in action.
The development of the Tuaka drive solution focused on simple and cost-effective system integration to accelerate the time-to-market of robotics applications. The above-average stiffness of the Cyclo gearboxes reduces interference – for high-precision applications and dynamic motion control with a high repetition rate. For this, Tuaka was awarded the Hermes Award 2022.
Plug-and-play complete solution for automated guided vehicles.
Plug-and-play complete solution for automated guided vehicles
Sumitomo's compact and precise Cyclo gearboxes, invented in-house in 1931, can be found in a wide range of drive kits as gearboxes, gearbox-motor combinations or special precision gearboxes for any industrial application. For example, in the plug & play complete solution designed for reliability for the drive of automated guided vehicles, Smartris, a combination of the three smart components gearbox, servo motor and drive controller. The cyclo principle in the gearbox and the in-wheel structure ensure the appropriate compactness for a wide range of automation applications in logistics or manufacturing. Smartris is maintenance-free with lifetime grease lubrication and easy to install and commission via plug-and-play.
Ultra Compact servo motors for precise automation
The new brushless servo motors feature a compact design that guarantees high dynamic performance with minimal dimensions. Available in five sizes, the Ultra Compact servo motors are designed for automation applications that require smooth and extremely precise motion, such as in the printing and medical industries. The design with Hiperface DSL single connector offers quick and easy installation and ensures maximum communication between motor and drive.
