How do I calculate a motor’s continuous torque when it is operating in an environment above its rated temperature? Since the motor’s continuous torque (Tc) is rated in a 40°C ambient, how can I estimate the motor’s continuous torque during my worst-case ambient temperature of 55°C?  

For manufacturers looking to offer personalization capabilities, true mass customization to batch size of one will require more than purchasing the latest 3D printer or equipment. It’s important to understand the entire supply chain involved, from product ideation and design to manufacturing and logistics.

Working with motion control experts like Kollmorgen makes selecting a servo system easier and faster, resulting in an optimal system for the application.

When and how to customize a standard servo motor depends on the predicted benefits derived from the customization that should include a solution tied to form, fit, and function. Learn more.

An alternative to customizing a servo motor is utilizing a frameless motor and integrating directly into the machine itself. Learn more in our new blog post!

An explosion proof motor is clearly marked with a nameplate that identifies its suitability for a given hazardous environment.  The nameplate will indicate the hazardous Class, Division, and Group for which the motor is suited.

Electric motors generate heat under normal operating conditions and have the potential to generate a spark if a motor coil fails. Excessive motor case temperatures or a spark that is not properly contained can cause an explosion or ignite a fire in environments where specific hazardous materials are present.

What is the best motor technology to use in a motion control application? There are numerous technologies to create motion, from hydraulic to pneumatic or electromechanical. In the world of precision motion control, many machine designers face a choice between step motor or servo motor technologies to solve their performance requirements. Both stepper motors and servo motors have a place in the motion control world but understanding when to use each has created a big debate

There are several performance requirements that must be considered when selecting a stepper motor for an application. Our Stepper Optimizer tool is the fastest and most reliable way to determine these needs.

A stepper motor is a simple two phase brushless synchronous motor containing a segmented magnetized rotor and a stator consisting of a prescribed number of electromagnetic coils. When energized, these coils create north and south polls that push or pull the segmented magnetized rotor to make it spin.
