Enormous acceleration with disc magnet technology

Enormous acceleration with disc magnet technology

Following the acquisition of Dimatech, a Swiss manufacturer of high-performance stepper motors, Faulhaber now also offers this motor type with higher power and greater dynamics. The primary difference between disc magnet motors and conventional motors is the disc magnet motor’s extremely light rotor. It consists of a multi-pole magnet in the shape of a disc mounted on the motor shaft. Its low weight minimises the rotor inertia and enables an acceleration that is unattainable for these dimensions by any other technology. Thus, this motor type is ideally suited for applications in which the speed or direction changes often and quickly, or where very small and precise step movements are required. In addition, the size of the magnet poles as well as the shape of the magnetic circuit are arranged to deliver the highest possible torque with respect to the rotor dimensions.
