Electric Motors

An electric motor uses electrical energy, typically supplied by the associated drive electronics, to produce mechanical energy, through the interaction of magnetic fields and current-carrying conductors.

Electric motors are found in applications as diverse as industrial fans, blowers and pumps, machine tools, household appliances, power tools, and disk drives. They may be powered by direct current (e.g. a battery powered portable device or motor vehicle) or by alternating current from a central electrical distribution grid.

Electric motors may be classified by the source of electric power, by their internal construction, by their application or by the type of motion they give.

For over 30 years we have specialised in the industrial end of the electric motor market, offering servo and stepper motors for all manner of applications. Our product range covers the following technologies.

Brushless AC servo motors

The design offers substantial benefits in terms of reliability, dynamic performance, torque density and cooling capability. The “brushless” motor also offers reduced maintenance, lower noise levels and longer operating life.

To meet the demands of servo applications at both ends of the performance spectrum, we offer a range of motors from standard, high volume designs, through to customised motors tailored to your requirements.

Stepper motors

Stepper motors have electromagnets arranged around the rotor. The electromagnets are energised to provide precise, stepped, rotation.

A stepper motors position and speed can be controlled precisely without a feedback device (known as open-loop control).

For higher performance, the motors can be fitted with an encoder (closed-loop control).
