Kit / torque motors

There are a number of advantages to using this modern drive technology - both for rotatory and for linear motion control. It is not only a question of performance. Often secondary issues of mechanical assembly are of equal importance, such as:

  • High acceleration capability
  • High dynamic performance (ratio max./min. speed)
  • Hetter stiffness and damping
  • Hetter position accurarcy and repeatability
  • High reliability
  • High efficiency
  • Good, consistant performance over a wide temperature range
  • No wearing parts, long life
  • Lower operational noise level
  • Hollow shaft
  • Short motor length or smaller cross-section
  • Frame size or form

The main reason to employ a direct drive still remains servo-performance. This is generally better than for a conventional servo-drive with mechanical gear reduction. The explanation lies in the extremely stiff connection between the motor and the load which can be achieved in this mechanical configuration.
