Curvedrive – innovative fluid drive for applications in robotics, exoskeletons and mechanical engineering

Sometimes, robot joints with pneumatic or hydraulic drives are technically complex in design, partly with linear cylinders, pivot points and many mechanical parts. Many constructive solutions currently present themselves in such a way that used linear cylinders with a pivot bearing, bearing block and swivel head pivot the parts with the help of levers and […]

Batteries for Drones

Batteries for Drones

Batteries provide essential power to the motors, receivers and controllers. For multirotors, the most commonly used batteries are Lithium Polymer (LiPo) types, as their energy efficiency is high. Usually 3-4 cell batteries are used, which provide currents of up to around 5000 mah (miliamperes – hour) capacity. To understand what mah means, consider this example: […]
