Loomis, Cal. – Custom direct-drive motors are now available from Applimotion. These motor assemblies can be created using low profile ULT, high output UTH, out-runner UTO motors and newly introduced UTS slotless motor kits.
Custom direct-drive motors use precision bearings, high resolution encoders, and mechanical attributes based on customer-specific needs. High-resolution encoders are installed after motor assembly to minimize mechanical runout producing the highest accuracy. Final testing can include encoder accuracy mapping using an autocollimator.
Applimotion customers have been using frameless motor kits in unique direct drive motors for over 10 years. Now, the company offers this unique value-added service to companies needing unique direct drive solutions, but not having the internal design resources.
End-users work directly with an Applimotion electromechanical design engineer to work out design details. Throughout the process, hidden details and potential problems can be uncovered early in the design process and in the end the complete assembly fully is fully tested and documented.
