Each motor is designed to address today’s automation and robotic applications’ unique requirements.

There has never been more need for high-performance, lightweight, and integrated motion control devices as the robotics industry pushes the envelope of what is conceivable. Having just made its UK debut, MOONS’ Industries, a pioneer in cutting-edge motor technology worldwide, is taking on this problem head-on by providing a wide selection of motors made especially for robotic applications. Every motor is made to meet the specific needs of the robotic and automation applications of today. Let’s concentrate on the advantages of each of the three MOONS motor types that are offered for these uses.

Micro Motion Motors

The slotted stator seen in standard brushless DC motors is a departure in MOONS’ slotless motors due to its distinctive design. Higher torque density, better heat dissipation, and far lower cogging torque and torque ripple are just a few of the many benefits that come with its unique design. These qualities are especially helpful in robotic applications where smooth, practically cog-free operation, effective heat management, and accurate motion control are critical.

Multiple MOONS slotless motors are built directly into each finger of the newest generation of dexterous hands, such as those used in humanoid robots and prosthetics, allowing for autonomous control of individual joints and degrees of freedom. This degree of fine-grained motion control, together with the remarkable torque density and power-to-weight ratio of the motors, enables the robotic hand to approach the complex motions, dexterity, and accuracy of its human counterpart.

Frameless Motor Technology

Robotics engineers are always looking for methods to reduce the weight and size of their systems without sacrificing functionality or energy efficiency. By doing away with the conventional motor housing, MOONS frameless motor designs offer the ideal solution, enabling unmatched torque density and integration flexibility even in the most constrained places.

Only the stator and rotor components make up MOONS’ frameless, brushless BLDC motors, which have an incredibly tiny form factor that allows for smooth integration into robotic joint assemblies, end-effectors, and other space-constrained applications. These motors have an unparalleled torque-to-weight ratio, which allows for high-speed operation and dynamic motion control—both of which are necessary for sophisticated robotic systems—despite their small size.

The frameless motors from MOONS offer an additional benefit in that they may be tailored and optimized for certain robotic joint configurations, negating the need for a universal solution. In close collaboration with clients, MOONS customizes the motor’s size, winding patterns, and mechanical connections to provide a fully integrated, high-performance motion control package that reduces inertia and increases torque density inside the robotic joint assembly.


Harmonic Motion

These lightweight, compact motors may be used in conjunction with harmonic drive gearheads and other complimentary parts to develop motion control systems that are tailored to the needs of individual applications. Robotic systems are made more agile and accurate by harmonic drive gearheads, which are recognized for their small size and outstanding torque transmission characteristics. The combination of power density and flexibility offered by frameless BLDC motors has the potential to develop a synergy that might transform the robotics industry. This allows for a small design that improves agility and adaptability across sectors while optimizing energy consumption, lowering operating costs, and lessening the environmental effect.

The complexity of robotic and automation systems is rising, which puts more and more demands on the actuation parts that drive them. To assist our clients remain ahead of the curve, MOONS has created best-in-class motors that combine unrivaled performance, flexible design, and noticeable benefits.
