The need for precise motion control is driven by many demands now placed on the line, from moving products around on the manufacturing floor to a variety of work stations to the logistics of moving the finished product through a facility.
From the outside it looks just like any other industrial brushless servo motor but inside it utilized advanced manufacturing techniques to provide higher torque, higher speed, smoother operation, higher efficiency, and better inertial matching in a smaller package.
To understand these benefits, we start with the basic concept of direct drive whereby the force of a motor is directly applied to a mechanism without any intermediate drive train such as a gearbox or toothed belt etc. The core working principles of direct drive motor technology is in essence based on the right hand rule of electromagnetism, whereby a current moving through a wound coil creates a magnetic field.
3D printing has become a powerful force in today's manufacturing industry from prototyping to tooling and fixtures to custom, end-use parts. Many businesses struggle to find the right solutions to fit their needs and provide ROI. Selecting the right platform to prevent manufacturing roadblocks is vital to optimizing your manufacturing line productivity. Download the all new buyer's guide to help you evaluate the benefits of 3D printing and dispel misconceptions, understand the pros/cons of various 3D printing processes and materials, and assess the key considerations in selecting a 3D printer.
