Reducing Motor Weight

Today’s manufacturing equipment needs to have a smaller footprint, offer superior performance, and weigh less than ever before. Weight is an important factor not only because it aids in providing greater efficiencies for speed and torque, but for portable equipment, including table- and desk-top systems such as 3D printers, simulation systems, and medical lab equipment. In a motion system, motor weight can be very important.

4 Critical Motor Requirements Needed for a LiDAR System

LiDAR is a critical component for driverless vehicles so that they can “see” and react to obstructions that might occur while driving from one place to another. The motor, as a key component to the system, must meet tight application requirements in order to facilitate the requirements of the system.
