The motors will be used to power small hand-pieces for sensitive applications such as dentistry and surgery. Speeds up to 40,000 rpm can be controlled by the user, and the motors will withstand intermittent overload for short-term dynamic applications. Preloaded ball bearings allow for maximum 22 N radial loading and 75 N axial loading. Replacement of the front bearing extends the service life of the motor.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/bhs-brushless-motors-target-sensitive-dental-apps" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/bhs-brushless-motors-target-sensitive-dental-apps#comments Products Motors/Drives Thu, 12 Feb 2015 16:51:00 +0000 46401 at http://machinedesign.com Right Angle Spiroid Gear Features a High Torque-to-Space Ratio http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/right-angle-spiroid-gear-features-high-torque-space-ratio <div class="node-body article-body"><p>Maxon introduces a new right angle gear to work with the companies 22mm and 32mm DC motors. Offering a 4:1 or 31:1 ratio it can work directly or indirectly with maxon&rsquo;s brush/brushless motors, GP22, or PG32. This provides a range of gear reductions to use for multiple applications. The performance benefits include: high stiffness/low deflection with large applied loads; low backlash; up to 3:1 &ldquo;gear teeth&rdquo; contact ratio; quiet operation; and high torque to space ratio (HTSR) technology.</p></div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/right-angle-spiroid-gear-features-high-torque-space-ratio" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/right-angle-spiroid-gear-features-high-torque-space-ratio#comments Motors/Drives Thu, 05 Feb 2015 19:38:00 +0000 45991 at http://machinedesign.com Ironless and Iron-Core Brushless Linear Motors http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/ironless-and-iron-core-brushless-linear-motors <div class="field-byline"> Staff </div> <div class="node-body article-body">A new line of standard and customizable brushless linear motors, also called AC servo linear motors, features long stationary magnet assemblies and short moving coils. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/ironless-and-iron-core-brushless-linear-motors" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/ironless-and-iron-core-brushless-linear-motors#comments Products Motors/Drives Thu, 22 Jan 2015 15:06:00 +0000 45641 at http://machinedesign.com Linear Actuator Features Continuous Force Rating of 10,000 lbf http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/linear-actuator-features-continuous-force-rating-10000-lbf <div class="field-byline"> Staff </div> <div class="node-body article-body">Curtiss-Wright Corporation announced the expansion of the Exlar FT Series of universal electric rod style linear actuators. </div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/linear-actuator-features-continuous-force-rating-10000-lbf" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/linear-actuator-features-continuous-force-rating-10000-lbf#comments Products Linear Motion Motors/Drives Tue, 06 Jan 2015 19:03:00 +0000 45331 at http://machinedesign.com How to Select a DC Motor: Brushless DC Motors http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/how-select-dc-motor-brushless-dc-motors <div class="field-deck"> Sponsored by MICROMO </div> <div class="node-body article-body">When considering utilizing a Brushless DC motor (versus a brush, or coreless, DC motor) in an application, it’s important to know and understand how Brushless DC motors</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/how-select-dc-motor-brushless-dc-motors" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/motorsdrives/how-select-dc-motor-brushless-dc-motors#comments White Papers Motors/Drives Tue, 30 Dec 2014 22:24:00 +0000 45291 at http://machinedesign.com PDR: Corvette’s Riskiest Option? http://machinedesign.com/editorial-comment/pdr-corvette-s-riskiest-option <div class="field-deck"> The Performance Data Recorder (PDR) seems like it might tempt some Corvette owners to push themselves dangerously past their driving limits. </div> <div class="node-body article-body">The 2015 Corvette is another sweet-looking sports car in a long line of well-engineered and iconic roadsters.
