Robotics and automation have long been standard in production. In the world of the medical industry, they are becoming increasingly important. This is due, on the one hand, to a gain in efficiency and comfort – to say nothing of the cost savings – and, on the other hand, to the innovative drive solutions that ensure trust in the most demanding of applications: From local, office-based analysis systems to fully automated, large-scale laboratories, from functional prostheses to portable medication dosing units and even surgery robots, FAULHABER drive components are the first choice here. In addition to the high standards of EN ISO 9001 and 14001, FAULHABER is also specially certified for medical products acc. to EN ISO 13485.
Motors in drive systems, that offer a particularly large amount of force and can operate trouble-free for a long time are needed for powerful gripping or for hours of milling. At the same time, the drives for the tools must by definition consistently deliver maximum performance – with small dimensions, since space is always limited in the function head.
An industrial world without robotics or automation has today become inconceivable. In this context, process safety, reliability and economic efficiency are on the forefront when it comes to the application of such systems in modern production lines. The industrial-grade drive components from FAULHABER convince with their high endurance and performance in a robust and compact design. Whether for exact and highly dynamic positioning tasks, for example in SMT assembly machines, handling devices and electrical grippers, conveyor systems or sensitive and low-noise operations in artificial robotic hands.
Celera Motion announces the expansion of its Zettlex Ultra IncOder™ series of inductive angle encoders with the introduction of the new Mini Ultra and, continued growth of the Midi Ultra. Celera Motion’s Zettlex encoders use a unique, inductive technology that employs the use of printed circuit boards (PCBs). These encoders are non-contact devices which allow precision measurement of angle or angular speed in harsh environments where traditional capacitive and magnetic devices can be unreliable. Each Ultra IncOder unit is pre-calibrated and offers up to 19 arc-seconds accuracy depending on size. Read more
This is particularly important in today’s world as the demands for decentralized electronics and capacity to handle complex real-time applications become ever higher.
Of course, both motor and motion controller can do significantly more than is shown here. For a more comprehensive instruction of how to program in BASIC for automation purposes, use the whitepaper from FAULHABER concerning its local scripting capabilities (pdf).

Ironhand’s® pioneering system has been developed to prevent and detect risks of repetitive strain injuries from grip-intensive tasks. The system combines neuroscience, mechatronics and robotics with unique digital functions and strengthens the user’s grip and endurance.
The motion controllers from FAULHABER are not only powerful – the MC-series are easy to handle. But since you probably have more important things to do than to only read manuals, we’ve put together a simple guide in video format. In just 7.5 minutes, you will learn to connect the FAULHABER’s 3268 … BX4 brushless motor to the FAULHABER MC5010 motion controller.
We guide you all the way from downloading the free software, to writing and running a simple program that demonstrates a few different types of motion. Of course, both motor and motion controller can do significantly more than we show here.
