When a servo motor that’s big enough isn’t big enough

It might seem a strange statement, but yes, you read that right—there are certain operating conditions where servomotors that should be big enough for an application are actually too small! Too small that is in terms of their power rating, which for most applications is a perfectly acceptable way of selecting the right size motor. […]

Do you have any Technical Questions that need answering?

As one of our valued partners we’d like to invite you […]

Know Your Duty Cycles

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) has eight classifications for duty cycles to designate a motor’s operating conditions. It’s extremely important to know the differences and to note what mode of operation each rating refers to. When specifying a motor, it’s worth talking to a supplier that can give advice on such matters to ensure you […]

Do this before you send a servo motor to a repairer

If you’re sending a servo motor to a repairer you don’t know, it’s worth taking this one very simple precaution before you do. In fact, even if you know and trust the repairer, it’s still worth doing this just to be on the safe side. If you don’t and the repairer overlooks it then you […]
