Baldor helps Dolphins make big impression

Although the Dolphins will not be Super Bowl-bound this season, the team did leave an outstanding impression on fans in the United Kingdom. The real-life model of the towering 26 foot high animatronic figure 'Big JT’ - NFL Miami Dolphins star player Jason Taylor - has very fast feet. When physical effects company Artem was commissioned to create the figure, they had to be quick as well.

Although the Dolphins will not be Super Bowl-bound this season, the team did leave an outstanding impression on fans in the United Kingdom. The real-life model of the towering 26 foot high animatronic figure 'Big JT’ - NFL Miami Dolphins star player Jason Taylor - has very fast feet. When physical effects company Artem was commissioned to create the figure, they had to be quick as well. The company had just six weeks to design and build the figure, which was created to mark the first time a competitive NFL game has been played outside of the USA. Fast delivery and simple system integration were essential, and Artem chose Baldor’s MicroFlex AC drives and BSM servo motors due to the short lead delivery times involved, as well as Baldor’s previous support on motion control projects. www.baldor.com
