Actuators & Dampers
Actuators & Dampers

Honeybee Robotics offers a complete line of high-performing actuators and dampers for space applications. Our qualified motor and gearing configurations easily integrate with standard interfaces to provide a turnkey solution that minimizes cost and lead times. By leveraging our in-house capabilities, strategic supplier base, and a deep understanding of our customer’s requirements, standard designs can be tailored to meet virtually any motion control requirement. Honeybee’s best-in-class actuators have demonstrated operation at temperatures ranging from -200 °C to +180 °C and in vibration environments in excess of 130 grms.

Brushless DC Motors

Brushless DC Motors are much more efficient and capable of driving high load inertias, compared to Stepper Motor Actuators.

Stepper Motors

Stepper motors are a popular choice for applications that require high torque density, simple control, and unpowered holding torque.

Eddy Current Dampers

Eddy Current Dampers (ECDs) are passive electromagnetic devices that provide controlled damping for systems such as deployable structures and payloads.

Linear Actuators

Whether it's a small positioning device or a high-power thrust vector control system, our stepper or BLDC actuators can be augmented with a lead or ball screw for precision linear motion.

Cogless Direct Drive Motors

Cogless burshless DC (BLDC) motors are ideal for applications requiring low torque disturbance or extremely precise rate control.

P-35 Actuator

Honeybee offers the versatile P35 actuator for applications requiring higher output torque and stiffness than our smaller geared motors.
