Motor Application - Feeding Materials

Other Mechanisms - Feeding Materials

For applications where high speed operation and high resolution are required, a stepper motor or servo motor is the best solution. For speed stability, brushless DC speed control systems offer a range of solutions. While AC motors and speed control motors provide easy to use continuous motion.

Position Control Applications

For applications that require higher accuracy positioning Oriental Motor offers a wide range of Stepper Motor and Servo Motor solutions. Stepper motors, with their ability to product high torque at a low speed while minimizing vibration, are ideal for applications requiring quick positioning over a short distance. Servo motors are easy to operate and allow for smooth operation with large inertial loads and belt mechanisms. Servo motors are ideal for positioning over long distances using a flat torque characteristic from low to high speeds.

Features

Positioning Operation

Positioning over short distance

Stepper Motors are suitable for high accuracy positioning over a short distance and provide high torque even at low speeds. Stepper motors also offer very low vibration and a wide range of features and options such as gearheads, encoders and built-in controllers to meet the specific needs of your application.

Positioning over long distance

Servo Motors provide accurate positioning for quick moves or for a long distance moves. All feature a closed loop configuration ideal for variable loads and offer a wide range of gear options and braking or load holding options. The built-in controller (stored data) FLEX also helps for system configuration considerations.

A wide range of gearing options are available to provide higher resolution positioning and higher torque.

Geared Stepper Motors

Geared Servo Motors

Geared Stepper Motors

Geared stepper motors not only achieve deceleration, high torque and high resolution, but they also offer improved damping characteristics at Start and Stop ensuring stable operation even during quick positioning movements.

A wide range of gearing options are available:
Spur, Taper Hobbed, Planetary and Harmonic gearheads.

Geared Servo Motors

These servo motors incorporate a gearhead with reduced backlash to make the most of the high controllability of the servo motors. The gearhead ensures high accurate, smooth operation even in applications where a large load torque is received.

Speed Control Applications

For applications where the speed needs to controlled or vary during operation Oriental Motor offers Brushless DC Motors (BLDC Motors) that feature wide speed control range and constant torque regardless of load.

By combining a control circuit with the motor, speed changes can be performed. Speed control motors are optimal for switching between high speed and low speed operation and for arbitrary adjustment of speed.

Brushless DC Motors

Brushless DC Motors (BLDC Motors) provide high speed stability, energy saving and space saving. Brushless DC motors also allow for stable speed control even with a fluctuating load and offer constant torque over a wide speed range.

Oriental Motor also offers a range of gear options to reduce the motor speed and generate greater torque.

Brushless DC (BLDC) Motor Gear Options

Parallel Shaft Gearheads

Hollow Shaft Flat Gearheads

Parallel Shaft

Parallel Shaft gearheads reduce the motor speed and generate greater torque. A wide range of gear ratios are available.

Hollow Shaft Flat Gear

Direct connection to the drive shaft is possible without using a connecting part which enables equipment space saving. In addition, the hollow shaft flat gearhead enables permissible torque without saturation even at high gear ratios, so the motor torque can be fully utilized.

Fixed Speed Applications

For fixed speed or constant speed applications Oriental Motor offers a wide range of AC motors.

AC induction motors are ideal for applications that operate continuously in one direction while AC reversible motors are ideal for conveyors that must reverse or change directions repeatedly. For applications where the load must be held in place or for vertical applications, there are a wide range of AC motors with power-off activated electromagnetic brake. For simple braking, our Speed Control Systems or Brake Pack are also convenient options. The IP67 rated AC induction motors are suitable for applications that will be in contact with water or need to be washed. Two types of AC synchronous motors are also available for applications where the motor needs to be operated continuously in one direction at synchronous speed regardless of load torque; the standard AC synchronous motor and a low-speed synchronous motor for frequent starting, stopping and reversing.
