Swedish manufacturer HDD has developed a line of servomotors which it says are four times smaller than conventional motors, and weigh up to two thirds less.
An HDD motor weighing 3kg is reported to deliver the same performance as a conventional motor weighing approximately 9kg. In robot applications, for example, this would increase lifting power since the total weight of tool would decrease whilst retaining the same power.
Working up to 3000rpm, the motors emit less heat than conventional motors, and conform to both SinCos and ENDAT feedback standards.
