Integrated Drive Motor for Smooth Motion Control

With its angle encoder modules named the MRP series, HEIDENHAIN has already given manufacturers of high-precision rotary axes enormous support in their design, assembly and alignment tasks. The integration of a torque motor with a very low detent torque is now the logical step forward in this solution. This unique combination, named the SRP series, […]
