EAO – New high-torque stepper motors reduce noise and vibrationOct 6 2006 - Subs & Systems [More Subs & Systems Articles]
New technological advancements to its Sanmotion family of servo and stepping systems have been introduced by Sanyo. These include a high-accuracy step angle that reduces noise and vibration and a 50% improvement in torque, resulting in streamlining of machine productivity. They are now available in the UK from EAO.
Sanmotion is a complete range of motion control systems, renowned for high accuracy, efficiency and safety. EAO offers new additions to the family including the F-Series 2-phase stepper motors, available in NEMA 17 and 24 frame sizes with 0.9 degree stepper angle, and NEMA 34 with 1.8 degree stepper angle. The stepper motors deliver superior high resolution and 50% higher torque than conventional stepper motors and are ideal for semi-conductor production equipment, conveyors, printing presses, optical measuring instruments, surveillance and medical equipment and general industrial machinery, says the company.
The NEMA 17 and 24 stepper motors are now available with integrated internal drivers. The space-efficient design of both motor and driver allows for compact installation and less wiring. Ease of operation is achieved through a selection function for matching the operation mode to the application.
Available in uni or bipolar winding, the Sanmotion’s combined cutting edge technology and motor design delivers high holding torques of a minimum of 0.39Nm in the NEMA 17, 2.15Nm in the NEMA 24 and 9Nm in the NEMA 34, says the company.More news from EAO Ltd
