Custom motor design
As a motor manufacturer for over 45 years, Aerotech can work with you to design a custom motor that is optimum for your application. To minimise cost, Aerotech will consider customising one of its standard designs. If this will not meet your needs, a completely new design will be implemented.
As an example, let’s consider the Aerotech wasp. The wasp legs have both rotary and linear motion that may require special motor designs. For the rotary motion, an Aerotech S-series motor (brushless servomotor with an aperture) could be customised to fit the dimensions of the joint while providing the necessary torque.
Aerotech will design the magnetic field and coil structure to have the appropriate length, and the inside and outside diameters to meet the dimensional requirements, as well as the torque requirements. Other factors the company would consider in the design would be the necessary electrical characteristics such as bus voltage and current available on your machine, and the speed necessary in the application.
In regard to linear motion, Aerotech would customise one of its linear motors. Just as in the rotary design, the mechanical characteristics (length, width, height, and force) as well as the necessary electrical characteristics (bus voltage, resistance, inductance, and current) would be considered in the design to meet specific application needs.
Aerotech can accommodate requirements for custom motors even for low-volume applications. If you have an application that requires minor customisation, or a completely new design, contact Aerotech.
