  • Did You Know? Product lines that support Q Programming

    Apr
    26

    Many of our customers take advantage of the benefits of Q Programming, our text-based programming language designed for simple yet powerful programming of single axes. Q Programming incorporates commands for various kinds of motion, I/O control and sequencing, and math functions that enable users to create all kinds of motion control sequences and algorithms, from the most basic to very advanced.

  • Energy Efficient Step Motors

    Apr
    25

    Users of step motors will praise their simplicity, excellent positioning skills, and economy. They may also lament certain characteristics of step motor performance. For example, traditional step motor systems run open loop which means the drive electronics supply constant current to the motor whether there is a demand for torque from the load or not. What happens to that current when there’s no torque demand? It is lost as heat.

    That’s the answer to one of the more common questions we get at Applied Motion. We maintain inventory in our California warehouse as a commitment to zero lead time for our most popular set of step motors. The CORE step motors are the best choice to match with our drives and have been fully characterized with speed-torque curves with recommended drives. Speed-torque curves are important for every project because they are the most accurate representation of performance for a given motor and drive combination.

    Jan
    25

    Basic step and direction drives for powering step motors abound in the marketplace, and it takes dedication to set our drives apart from the pack. We do this by developing innovative control solutions that make step motors perform better (faster, quieter, smoother, more accurate, and with more torque), without breaking the budget.

  • StepSERVO™ Closed Loop Improves 3D Printing

    Jan
    22

    Many industrial and commercial applications benefit from the performance improvements of StepSERVO™ closed loop stepper technology, but none may be so pronounced as the benefits achieved in 3D printing.

    3D Platform® has been using Applied Motion’s traditional, open loop integrated step motors on their large format 3D printers for several years now. Beginning this year, 3D Platform is launching their next generation of 3D printers with new technology called SurePrint™.
