- The linear motor has 2 main components – the stationary track, called a platen, and the moving. Since the principles of linear motors are similar to rotary motors, the controls are also similar to those we covered in the video on servomotors.
- A servomotor is an electric drive with a feedback mechanism. The feedback loop allows the motor input current to be adjusted automatically to properly position the servo shaft when the sensors tell the controller that it’s time to move the shaft...
- Selecting a stepper motor requires consideration of power, torque, physical constraints and several other factors.
