Servomotors are generally used as a high performance alternative to the stepper motor. Stepper motors have some inherent ability to control position, as they have built-in output steps. This often allows them to be used as an open-loop position control, without any feedback encoder, as their drive signal specifies the number of steps of movement … Continue reading Do you know the difference between these 10 types of servomotors?
The TBM frameless motor is a new series of direct drive torque motors designed for applications that require high power in a small compact form factor with minimized weight, and inertia. Typical applications include robotic joints, weapon stations, sensor gimbals, sight systems, UAV propulsion and guidance, as well as many others. Features include: 3 … Continue reading Kollmorgen’s New TBM Frameless Motor Series
High power up to 120 W, speeds up to 100,000 rpm, sterilizable 1000 times. With its modular construction, this new brushless DC motor is available in three performance classes: the cost-optimized EC 19 at 60 Watt, the strong and high-speed EC 19 at 120 Watt and the sterilizable high-end version EC 19 at 120 Watt. … Continue reading maxon’s New BLDC Sterilizable Gearmotor EC 19 and GP 19M
Reprint of December 30, 2015 Linear Motion Tips article from Design World Servo motor sizing is often done with the help of a manufacturer’s sizing program, but it’s important to understand the three most critical factors—speed, torque, and inertia—to ensure you select the best-fit motor for the application. Selecting the right servo motor for a … Continue reading Three critical factors for servo motor sizing
February 23, 2016 11:00 AM ET Register to watch the webinar on or after February 23. For many years there seems to have been an engineering mystique surrounding the integration of frameless motor part sets into high performance machine design. This has kept many machine design engineers from jumping in to embed these power and … Continue reading Theory, Application & Operation of Frameless Motor Technology. Live Webinar.
Integrated Step Motors fuse step motor plus drive and control components into a single device. Integrated steppers offer a space-saving design that reduces wiring and saves on cost over separate motor and drive components. Ideally suited for applications such as packaging and labeling, automated test and measurement, automated assembly and life sciences, StepSERVO™ motors from … Continue reading New Integrated StepSERVO™ Motors from Applied Motion Products
