Matrix engineers recently developed a new line of permanent magnet brakes (PMB) for use by the servo motor industry. The small diameter brakes are ideally suited for precision pick and place robots utilized in medical laboratories and pharmaceutical manufacturing applications.
A leading global industrial robotics manufacturer contacted Matrix to provide servo motor brakes for a new series of robots used in material handling and process applications. The robots often operate 16 to 24 hours/day performing rapid repetitive programmed functions.
