Motion Control Tutorial – Slotted vs. Slotless Motor Technology

When first introduced, brushless DC motors, despite their many advantages, were cast as a costly alternative to brush-commutated motors and were typically only specified for low-power applications where long life was the primary desired requirement. Without the mechanical brush-commutator mechanism that would wear and eventually result in motor failure, brushless motors could be relied upon […]

Motion Control Tutorial – What is a Voice Coil Actuator?

Motion Control Tutorial – Understanding the Basics of a Voice Coil Actuator   Motion Control Tutorial – A voice coil actuator, also known as a non-commutated DC linear actuator, is a type of direct drive linear motor.  The name “voice coil” comes from one of its historically first applications: vibrating the paper cone of a […]

Motion Control Tutorial – Linear Induction Motor: How it Works.

What is all the hype about the Hyperloop? How does it move? What is the technology that makes it possible?   Santa Clarita, CA —– Motion Control Tutorial – How Does a Linear Induction Motor Work? – Linear induction motor (LIM) theory is most easily understood as a rotary motor that has been cut and […]

Linear Motion Control – Linear Motors: How Do They Work?

What is a Linear Motor? Motion Control White Paper – A linear motor should be thought of as a rotary electric motor that has been cut along a radial plane and unrolled. The resultant motor is a direct drive linear electric motor that can produce linear motion without the need of pneumatic, hydraulic cylinders, or […]
