Faulhaber has expanded its range of brushless DC servomotors to include the Series 1218….B, which is available in the UK from EMS. The servomotor is designed to address applications where high power and overall motor size is a key requirement.

1218…B servomotors

Its 18mm length makes it the most compact drive on the market in the 12mm-diameter size. It has a wide standard operating temperature range from -20°C to +100°C. Based on the Faulhaber ironless slotless stator winding design, the motor provides a reliable option for challenging fields of application such as medical pumps, robotics and laboratory automation.

The 1218…B servomotor delivers continuous torque up to 1mNm and has integrated digital Hall sensors for positional and speed feedback. When combined with the wide range of Faulhaber planetary or spur gearheads, the output torque can reach up to 300mNm. For high-precision positioning applications, Faulhaber zero-backlash spur gearheads provide a compact alternative to reduce or eliminate undesirable mechanical play in the application.

Faulhaber offers a selection of drive electronics to match the requirements of the 1218…B. From the miniaturised SC 1801 two- and four-quadrant speed controller to the compact MC 3002 motion controller with serial or CAN interface, the company offers a range of solutions to fit the application.

Complementary products include iron-core DC motors from KAG, stepper motors and brushed DC motors from Nidec Servo and brushed and brushless gear motors from Nidec Motors & Actuators. In addition we distribute high quality linear actuators and telescopic columns from SKF and Mingardi, used extensively in medical; healthcare; agriculture; building automation and many other industries.

With sustained growth we looked to diversify our product offering and in 1990 established our own manufacturing facility. Growth has been maintained with repeated expansion culminating in the acquisition of an eighth unit in 2010 resulting in an overall floor area to 2,200m². We have a large capacity machine shop equipped with the latest CNC machine tools and a dedicated gear cutting suite, as well as substantial assembly area. EMS offers design engineers a complete service; our scope of supply stretches from the supply of proprietary motors, gearheads, encoders and actuation devices, right the way through to added value in the way of pinions and wiring looms, to bespoke design and manufacture of complete drive mechanisms and actuation systems to meet your exact applications needs.

Located across two sites, our Head office, design and manufacturing is based in Poole, Dorset and sales, order processing, administration and warehousing located in Aldermaston, Berkshire.

Our commitment to quality and service remains as strong as ever and is reflected in our management system and strong emphasis on continuous improvement, resulting in our accreditation to EN ISO9001:2008 at both sites.
