Denso Robotics - Singularity Avoidance Video

White Paper 

Transforming machine design:
The power of integrated motion control -
This white paper will explore the advantages of implementing an Integrated Motion Control solution into machine design saving the system integrator and OEMs cabinet space, money and time through the use of a single standard motion system component instead of separate system components

HD Series Linear Positioners
 1D Max Video
The HD Series Linear Positioners are designed for OEMs, Machine Builders, and End Users needing a robust positioning solution. The HD Series is easy to apply, easy to install, and easy to maintain. The robust HD Actuatorsdesign begins with a deep channel extruded body and carriage that provide exceptional beam strength and carriage stiffness. The linear bearings and ballscrews are self lubricating, precision components with long life at 100% duty operation.
  • Pre-engineered package
  • Performance matched components
  • Robust design - exceptional beam strength
Avoiding Robot Singularity 
1D Max Video 

Singularity is an inherent problem and an important obstacle to be overcome in robotic kinematics. When it is near a singular configuration, a robot loses one or more degrees of freedom, and joint velocities approach infinity leading to control instability.
The RC7 controller is able to anticipate robot singularities.  In anticipating singularities, the RC7 control automatically shifts its approach so that the robot moves in a controlled manner through the singularity without impacting the motion path or velocity.

The new RC7 high-performance controller processes programs five times faster than the previous model yet maintains its industry-renowned user-friendly operation, light weight and compact size.

 AC input MDrive Technology
 1D Max Video

Technology leading integrated MDrive products are compact, powerful, easy to use and low cost and can reduce machine cost, size and time-to-market.  MDrive products are also available with 120 to 240 VAC input voltage further reducing implementation costs and simplifying machine design.


1D Max Video

These AC voltage packages span the complete MDrive family:


MDrive Plus:  stepper motor + driver integrated with controller, and power supply


MDrive Accustep:  Accustep control technology prevents loss of synchronization due to transient or continued overload, extreme acceleration or deceleration or excessive slew speed.


MDrive Linear Actuator:  combining all-in-one integrated stepper motor + driver technology with linear motion to deliver high accuracy and unsurpassed repeatability.
