A startup mobile-robotic material handling company needed to test their first version of automated equipment. The most expeditious way of doing this was to draw from our stock product found at servoelements.com. This website allows customers to select motion control, drive, motor, and gearbox and get immediate delivery. Since it is focused on low voltage, it fits the mobile robotic (typically battery powered) equipment perfectly.
Once they began testing the motor, they were able to characterize the load throughout the speed range. This allowed us to specify the exact motor they needed. The customer ordered a batch of custom wound motors, and 4 weeks later was able to prepare the machine for early marketing and sales. We won a long term customer, and they connected with a reasonable cost, quick delivery supplier capable of providing custom products.
