We are an international team of engineers, with one shared mission… to use our technology to make the world a healthier and safer place.
We have harnessed our expertise in the science of controlling motion, combining fundamental and theoretical know-how with practical engineering into effective product development. We employ unique expertise in algorithms for sensing and signal processing, giving our intelligent systems remarkable performance.
Just like the solutions we develop, we are an intelligent, autonomous ‘family’ of thinkers who can work both independently and as part of a larger team. We are not content to sit still. We constantly challenge ourselves to push the boundaries of what is possible – and in the process we actively shape the future of our systems.
We offer this expertise to you. We want your products to run faster, more precisely and more autonomously. We want them to run by themselves.
Nobleo TEchnology has published an article in the well known Mikroniek, a magazine for precision engineers. What if it is possible to create an indirect-drive actuator with the benefits of a direct
drive? Typical struggles in actuator selection are to balance upsides, such as high force,
with the downsides of additional mass, volume and availability. Adding a transmission
has its own downsides, such as friction, backlash and hysteresis. But what if a gear ratio
can be created with the aid of flexure mechanics, eliminating all these downsides?
How does one deal with the parasitic movements, the own guiding stiffness, dynamics
and motor choice in a static use case? Here, a pragmatic implementation is presented
of an (in)direct-drive actuator that is self-guided and compliant in multiple passive
directions to be used in a steady-state multi-axis kinematically coupled system.
Stiffness is dominant and accelerations are low, putting the linear motor outside
its comfort zone of merely high-dynamic motion.
In a fast-changing world where automating human work was already emerging, COVID-19 further accelerates change and automation due to social distancing and it creates economic challenges by interrupting everyday life. Working with more distance from each other will be the new normal and machines will have to work together with humans for them to keep them safe, but also keep them in business.
What will the warehouse of the future look like? It might include warehouses that extend vertically into the sky, rely on drones for delivery and utilize robots for lights-out order fulfilment. We all agree: The warehouse of the future is a fully automated warehouse in which divers processes are smart connected.
