Encoders can be installed on motors to precisely track their position and speed. Encoder feedback is essential for closed-loop motion control and can enhance accuracy, reliability, and even efficiency for machinery and robotics. In this article, we go over how various types of encoders work and share some selection tips.
Semiconductor wafers are the foundation of semiconductor chip manufacturing. The growing demand for semiconductors, driven by technological advancements like AI, IoT, and robotics, makes it crucial to handle these delicate wafers efficiently and precisely. In this article, we will explain how unified features from a family of modular motors and linear actuators can simplify and optimize process automation, such as semiconductor wafer handling.
In this article, we're diving deeper into two stepper motor types: high-resolution type and encoder type; and how they can be used to improve precision in critical laboratory automation applications like autosamplers.
In today's fast-paced industrial landscape, the role of conveyors has become more crucial than ever. These systems efficiently move materials, products, and goods for numerous industries, from labeling and packaging to warehousing and distribution. While many types of motors can be used in conveyors, this article highlights a few reasons why brushless motors should be considered for most conveyor applications.
Oriental Motor provides a wide variety of products to meet semiconductor equipment design goals. This post focuses on motor selection for two specific motion axes of a semiconductor manufacturing process called CMP (Chemical Mechanical Polishing) and explains how to save time by using different products from the same family.
This article highlights the advantages of brushless motors and stepper motors for driving a peristaltic pump, which is among the most common motor applications in medical, pharmaceutical, biotech, and diagnostic equipment.
