Precise Spur Gearboxes for your application

Spur gearboxes utilize gears with parallel input and output shafts. They can be single- or multiple-stage gears. Multiple output shafts are possible, and even a co-axial output can be implemented. The transmission of torque takes place via straight-cut (spur) or helical (dry fixed) gears. In most cases, the housings are made of aluminum in order to […]

Advantages of stepper motors with gearbox

The gearbox is a device that realizes the shifting effect by the meshing of the large and small gears and is widely used in industrial automation. Generally, a large gear is mounted on the low-speed shaft of the gearbox, and a small gear is mounted on the high-speed shaft, and the acceleration or deceleration can […]

Service Life of a Stepper Motor

Step motor life is usually determined by the life of the bearings. Bearings are often specified to give an “L10” life (outside the USA, it may be referred to as “B10” life.) This is the life at which ten percent of the bearings in that application can be expected to have failed due to classical fatigue […]

How to Connect Stepper Motor to Your Drive

• 2 Phase Motors A typical driving pattern for a two coil bipolar stepper motor would be: A+ B+ A- B-. I.e. drive coil A with positive current, then remove current from coil A; then drive coil B with positive current, then remove current from coil B; then drive coil A with negative current, then […]

How to Choose a Miniature Motor ?

One of the biggest problems Engineers face while designing ever-smaller devices is making things move. As the size of equipment decreases, the demand for smaller motors increase. However, oftentimes small enough motors simply don’t exist, and if they do, they do not provide enough torque or speed to be useful in the application. Often, the […]
