EMS exhibiting at Design Engineering Expo
Electro Mechanical Systems (EMS) will be exhibiting the FAULHABER BXT-SC series and the AM3248 stepper motor at this year’s Design Engineering Expo, taking place at the NEC in Birmingham on June 8 to 9, 2022.
Raising the bar in speed and torque
Electro Mechanical Systems (EMS) has supplied the new FAULHABER AM3248 stepper motor. Capable of achieving speeds five times that of comparable stepper motors, the AM3248 delivers exceptional performance in a compact size.
Driving forward with automatic EV charging
According to Next Green Car, there were over 535,000 plug-in electric and hybrid car models on UK roads in May 2021. As the ban on new diesel engines approaches, we’ll soon all be swapping gas for electricity. But bulky cables and charging infrastructure could cause a nuisance on our streets. So, should we start exploring other electric vehicle (EV) charging options? Here, Stewart Goulding, Managing Director of planetary gearhead supplier E...
How manufacturers can increase productivity to meet demand
The IHS Markit/CIPS Manufacturing Purchasing Managers' Index (PMI) value for May 2021 demonstrated that UK manufacturing is growing at its fastest rate in almost 30 years. Manufacturers must increase production to capitalise on the record growth in new orders. However, scaling up production quickly without additional floor space and workers can be challenging. Here Dave Walsha, Sales Manager at EMS, explores how expanding automation holds th...
Extremophile robots: inspection in hazardous areas
Maintenance in industrial settings is essential to maximise efficiency and prevent accidents, but can be a hazardous and difficult job. In these harsh conditions, robots can perform inspection and maintenance tasks to safeguard human workers. Here Stewart Goulding, Managing Director of EMS, looks at some of the industrial environments where robots dare to venture.
Robotics in 2021: collaboration and mobility
According to a 2020 survey by Mckinsey Global, COVID-19 has caused companies to accelerate the digitalisation of their internal operations by three to four years. The surge in digital uptake will propel the robotics industry forwards, shaping its contribution to businesses in 2021. Here, Stewart Goulding, Managing Director at Electro Mechanical Systems (EMS), explores robotic trends to look out for in the sector this year.
Precision micromotors in defence electronics
Emerging technologies have a large influence on the defence sector, facilitating the development of sophisticated electronic defence and intelligence systems. But how do you develop power components that meet the demands of innovative defence technology? Here, Stewart Goulding, Managing Director at Electro Mechanical Systems, has explained how precision micromotors are aiding the advancement of defence electronics.
How the uptake of robotics will change workforces
UK General Sir Nick Carter has suggested that a quarter of the British army could be robots by the 2030s. However, the armed forces isn’t the only industry that’s facing an increasing number of robot employees. Here Stewart Goulding, Managing Director of Electro Mechanical Systems (EMS), explains how the rise of robotic workers poses promise, not a threat.
Rehabilitation exoskeletons: engineering mobility
Around 50,000 people in the UK live with a spinal cord injury. To those who are injured, regaining movement is life changing - and advances in exoskeleton technology are helping to renew their independence. Here, Stewart Goulding, Managing Director of Electromechanical Systems (EMS), shares insight into the motor technology powering rehabilitation exoskeleton systems.
Exploring the use of motor systems for luxury vehicles
The Geneva Motor Show in Switzerland is renowned for showcasing futuristic vehicle designs. At the 2019 show, Kia revealed its concept car, Imagine, which took innovative design to the next level. While these vehicles are often far from mass produced possibilities, some of the features are already integrated into high end luxury vehicles. Here, Stewart Goulding from EMS, explains more.
Three ways micromotors are helping save the environment
You’d never leave your refrigerator door open at home. Not only would this mistake spoil your dinner plans, but it would also be a massive waste of energy. So why do we often find doorless fridges in supermarkets? Refrigeration in these stores hasn’t always been particularly energy efficient, but micromotors are helping to make an important switch.
Using micromotors to provide dental patient relief
If you’ve ever suffered from a toothache, you know that the pain it causes can be life-disrupting. Alarmingly, there are growing numbers of people across the UK waiting for dental treatment in pain. The increasing sophistication of micromotors is having a major impact on dentistry, leading to faster and improved treatment.
Trends in robotics: Cobots, agribots and medical robots
From recreational robots such as drones, to critical operational robots in the medical field, robotic technology is changing our daily lives. Here Stewart Goulding, Managing Director at precision drive system supplier, Electro Mechanical Systems, explores some current trends in the industry.
Motors help aircraft make the most out of their fuel
On December 17, 1903 in North Carolina, the Wright Flyer became the first powered, heavier-than-air machine to achieve sustained flight with a pilot aboard. The modern ambition for many aircraft designers is to achieve the opposite — aircraft that is lighter than air.
When fine control of micromotor speed matters
At the 2016 Rio Olympics, Mo Farah became the first British track and field athlete to win three Olympic gold medals, after winning gold in both the 5,000 and 10,000 metre races. The secret to his success was careful control of speed to navigate bends and avoid early fatigue. Likewise, in many industrial processes, precise control of micromotor speed is essential.
Next generation of lighting system innovation
Czech photographer Miroslav Tichy once said that photography is simply painting with light. Light Revolution, a lighting and camera system manufacturer for the film, photography and photogrammetry industry, with the support of mechatronic drive motor specialist Electro Mechanical Systems (EMS), has taken the concept of painting with light straight into the 21st century for next generation of lighting system innovation.
Upgrading surgery: the robot revolution
Large swathes of industry are implementing powered and robotic applications to ensure high-quality repeatable processes. Hospital and medical professionals are also keen to implement these applications, especially with the current pressure on the medical system, as the robot revolution is expected to ease pressures. Here, Stewart Goulding, managing director at precision drive system supplier EMS, has discussed the rise of robotics in surgery.
What are the robotic trends for 2020?
From recreational robots such as drones, to critical operational robots in the medical field, robotic technology is changing our daily lives. Here Stewart Goulding, Managing Director at precision drive system supplier Electro Mechanical Systems, has explored some current trends that are set to appear in 2020.
