Motor Mouth: Obtain Accuracy and Position Control with Stepper Motors

Operation A step motor is a motor type with a permanent magnet rotor and a stator wound with two independent windings. By alternating the direction of current flow through these windings, the motor will move in discrete “steps”. The size of the step varies with the construction of the motor. The commonly available range is…

Motor Mouth: Hypoid Gear Motors: Form, Fit, Function

Hypoid gearing is a specialized version of spiral bevel gearing. Like spiral bevel gears, they operate at right angles. Unlike spiral bevel gears, the pinion’s rotating axis is off center from the gear’s rotating axis. This allows the pinion to be larger, providing high strength and allowing for higher reduction ratios in each stage. AC…
