Go big or go long? Motor choice is about balancing the need for torque, form factor, and performance. Beyond length and diameter, learn how other motor topologies optimize your EO/IR platform.

Key talking points:

  • Reasons to adjust OD to through bore ratios.
  • Choosing between slot vs slotless motor design.
  • Explore the trade-offs of motor design options to minimize torque ripple and maximize torque density or torque per volume.
