There are a variety of ways to synchronize the speed of multiple motors. In this blog post, we will explain another advantage of using brushless motors systems, which is its ability to set speeds accurately and be able to synchronize speeds on multiple axes easily . Brushless motors utilize built-in hall-effect sensors to regulate speed. Even if the load, input voltage, or temperature fluctuates, the speed regulation will always be under +/-0.2% or better.

Parallel shaft gear motors are the standard configuration in the industry. However, right angle gear motors are gaining popularity for its ability to minimize the footprint of a machine, such as a conveyor. Another factor that should be considered is the type of gears used in the gearhead. While worm gear technology is popular, its gear efficiency can vary from 50~90% depending on gear ratio. On the other hand, hypoid gear technology keeps its efficiency at 80~95% regardless of gear ratio. Higher gear efficiency allows more torque to be transferred from the motor to the load shaft, and sometimes allows even smaller motors to be used.
