Delta robots

Conventional solutions

To ensure a reliable and a hygienically safe production, it was mandatory to use an extravagant housing for the drives. However, this solution has the following disadvantages:

  • Risk of dirt and moisture buildup under the encapsulation
  • Surfaces to be cleaned are large
  • Extra costs (design, cleaning)
  • Heat build-up under the encapsulation reduces the service life of the drive

Hygienic solution

New design freedom thanks to the Hygienic Design motor-gearhead unit. The highly precise HDP is particularly suitable for use in Delta-robotic applications:

  • Hygienic production because the drive components are cleaned directly
  • Smaller surfaces save time and cleaning costs
  • Open drive system extends the service life
