Design World contributing editor Steve Meyer recently published an article titled “Step Motors: Take a Step in the Right Direction” featuring Applied Motion’s very own Jeff Kordik, Chief Technical Officer, and the new StepSERVO™ line of integrated stepper motors. The article is about the traditional limitations of step motors – such as rotor settling time, resonance and motor heating – and how those limitations can be overcome using closed loop current control.
Customers who build high throughput production machinery demand cost effective, high performance motion control. Applied Motion Products has responded to this demand by developing a broad range of step-servo motors. Ideally suited for applications such as packaging and labeling, automated test and measurement, automated assembly and life sciences.
J series servos have arrived at our California warehouse. They include 18 new part numbers providing a wide range of choices that address the most common requests we get for servo motors.
Applied Motion Products is proud to announce the introduction of our new J Series Servo Motors. The J Series are outstanding in terms of quality, price and delivery.
We will be accepting pre-launch orders starting November 1, 2014. The official launch date is January 1, 2015. By then we will have local California stock of most of the popular part numbers. If you have a large requirement, our lead times are twice as fast as previously possible.
Newly added to our ever-expanding product line, we are pleased to introduce 2 shorter stack lengths to our NEMA 17 integrated stepper motors. The shortest single-stack model is only 2.64” long (67mm) and the 2-stack version is 2.85” (72.5mm) in length. See the STM17 drive+motor series page for a complete list of these integrated motors. The STM17 integrates a size 17 step motor, microstepping drive and controller into a single device that offers savings on space, wiring and cost over conventional motor and drive solutions.
Applied Motion Products continues to expand their line of STM24 high torque integrated step motors with additional industrial networking and harsh environment options. The NEMA 24 frame size mounts like the popular NEMA 23 step motor, but has a 15% larger cross section, allowing it to deliver up to 340 oz-in holding torque.
If you’ve been following recent developments in our motion control networking products, you know that Applied Motion Products added the Modbus RTU protocol to their NEMA24 integrated step drive+motor family back in December.
