“In the military sector both the environment the product will be used in and the precise nature of the application are key considerations for us as designers.”

SG Transmission Military Case Study

A defence company manufacturing bomb disposable robots required special sized brakes to fit onto the back end of small DC Motors. No standard unit would fit, so a new spring applied brake was designed by SG Transmission engineers to perfectly fit the back-end of the motor. This allowed the customer to fit the unit into a very small space, as the overall size of the robot was paramount.
