Advanced Motion & Controls Ltd. supplies step motors manufactured by Oriental Motor, which makes a wide range of high-quality motors to meet the needs of most applications. Our lineup includes stepping motor and driver packages, with high torque throughout the entire range, pulse inputs or built-in controllers, and open- or closed-loop options.
Also known as stepping motors or stepper motors, step motors are brushless DC electric motors that divide a full rotation into a number of equal steps. After this function, the user can command the motor’s position to move and hold at one of these steps without any position sensor for feedback, provided that the motor has been sized precisely to the application with respect to torque and speed.
Oriental Motor’s portfolio of stepper motors has been built to enable accurate positioning easily. Companies use them in different kinds of equipment to provide precise rotation angle and speed control with pulse signals. They generate high torque with a compact body, making them perfect for fast acceleration and response. Stepping motors also hold their positions at stop because of their mechanical design.
A full stepper-motor solution consists of a driver, which takes pulse signals in and converts them to motor motion, and the motor itself. Advanced Motion & Controls carries many Oriental Motor step-motor solutions for a broad range of applications, such as the following:
- AlphaStep closed-loop step motors;
- Two- and five-phase stepping motors;
- Geared, encoder, and electromagnetic brake options; and
- AC and DC input stepper-motor drivers.
Frame sizes range from 20 to 90 millimetres.
Common applications for these devices include the following: precision positioning equipment in lasers and optics; floppy disk drives, flatbed scanners, computer printers, plotters, slot machines, image scanners, CD drives, intelligent lighting, camera lenses, CNC machines, and three-dimensional printers.
Founded in Japan in 1885, Oriental Motor is a world leader in motor development, focusing on technological development and design improvement. In addition to stepper motors, we also have servo, AC, gear, and brushless motors from this producer. Contact us to find out more information about the Oriental Motor products we can offer.
