  4. Demystifying the Use of Frameless Motors in Robotics

    The use of frameless motors in robotics is often driven by the same factors that demand usage in other applications where a standard servo motor won’t work. The most common factor behind a decision to use frameless motors is the need for a compact form or environmental demands, yet a requirement for high power and torque density.

  6. Cures for Mechanical Resonance in Industrial Servo Systems.

    Mechanical resonance is a pervasive problem in servo systems. Most problems of resonance are caused by the compliance of power transmission components. Standard servo control laws are structured for rigidlycoupled loads. However, in practical machines some compliance is always present; this compliance often reduces stability margins, forcing servo gains down and reducing machine performance.

  8. Machine Optimization through DC Motor Selection

    Selecting the right DC motor is an important aspect of optimizing medical machine performance. There are so many motors on the market today, from heavy-duty AC motors to tiny DC brushless and stepper motors. To use any of the motors users must have a full understanding of the application parameters, including power, speed, torque, physical size, efficiency, lifetime expectations, and other requirements. There have literally been books published about each of these aspects, and to define them all accurately in a short article would be difficult to say the least.

  10. Stepper Motor Basics

    A step motor is a brushless DC electric motor that moves in precise angles, called steps, by converting a series of electrical pulses into rotational motion. They will not produce continuous motion from a continuous input voltage, and it will stay at a particular position as long as the power is “on”. Step motors are controlled with the use of discrete electrical pulse signals. Each pulse will rotate the step motor shaft by a fixed angle called a “step”. Lin Engineering step motors have several different step angles to choose from (0.45°, 0.9°, 1.8°).
