Their customers span many industries including aerospace & defense; printing; packaging & converting; food & beverage processing; medical imaging, in vitro diagnostics & laboratory automation; pharmaceutical manufacturing; material forming and cutting; oil & gas; and robotics.
Using Automated Guided Vehicles can make all the difference – lowering labor costs, increasing productivity, and keeping staff out of the way of danger. Kollmorgen provides complete hardware and software solutions for intelligently automating standard forklifts and purpose-built vehicles.
Kollmorgen is a leading provider of motion systems and components for robotic machine builders. Through world-class knowledge in motion, industry-leading quality and deep expertise in linking and integrating standard and custom products, Kollmorgen delivers breakthrough solutions that are unmatched in performance, reliability, and ease-of-use, giving robotic builders an irrefutable marketplace advantage.
The company’s NDC8 control solution for AGVs provides an application-independent automation platform.
Their reputation for enabling robotic innovation continues to grow as Kollmorgen motors deliver motion to new robotic applications every year. With over 100 years of industry experience, we’ve designed tens of thousands of motors and set hundreds of thousands of robotic joints in motion.
This background makes us a unique partner who can meet the technical needs of design engineers and the business needs of the global supply chain. Kollmorgen frameless motors in your robot let you focus on what matters most. Kollmorgen motors are optimized for fit and performance with industry standard harmonic gearing.
We offer millions of standard product variations, as well as the local expertise to customize standard motors and produce the best fit inside robotic joints. Decreased footprint. Increased precision. Power-dense motors provide a lighter weight and smaller system for improved performance and precision within a compact footprint. Lower cogging torque and minimized poling provide a smoother velocity motion profile to optimize control.
Kollmorgen sets the bar for helping robotic innovators shorten design cycles and get their product to market. Our range of standard, configurable motors – from frameless motors to housed servo and stepper motors – enable quick prototyping and rapid go-to-market strategies.
The company was founded as NDC in 1962 and became Kollmorgen in 2009.
