TBM™ Series

Kollmorgen TBM is designed to be directly embedded into machines, using the machine’s own bearings to support the rotor. The low cogging torque means motion is smoother. The high-performance TBM motor is easily integrated into a wide range of robotic applications such as robotic joints, medical robotics, sensor gimbals, guidance systems, and other motion-critical applications.

  • Three frame sizes
  • Multiple stack lengths per frame size
  • Multiple windings per frame/stack combination
  • Hall sensor option
  • Multiple thermal sensors options
  • Stainless Steel yokes for maximum corrosion protection
  • RoHS Compliant
  • Short lead time
  • Webtool resource for customer system Performance
  • Ideal design for modular machines and flexible manufacturing Systems
