Modular automation is the next phase of factory automation where the same production line is separated into modules and can quickly reconfigure itself to serve different needs. We're ready for this trend. Are you?
Welcome to Oriental Motor's "Engineering Notes" Blog:
Products and technology are only valuable when coupled with skilled people and services to support them. ORIENTAL MOTOR U.S.A. CORP. has dedicated over 33 years to establishing a service and support system to better serve customers. It is our goal to provide the best product and service from the design phase, through the sale and beyond.
Our blog will feature:
- Introductions to New Products and Technology
- Application Examples, Improvements and Problem Solving
- Tips and Recommendations for Motor Selection, Installation and Use
The BLV Series R Type brushless DC motor and compact driver not only reduces the size and weight of the original BLV Series driver but offer an upgrade to the motor as well. This blog post uses videos to explain the features offered by the BLV Series R Type.
This is part 1 of the Technical Manual Series for brushless motors, which explains the three main types of brushless motors: inner rotor type, outer rotor type, and disk rotor type.
In this blog post, I will explain how to easily program a timed pressing operation with our MEXE02 universal product support software. This example works for any products included in the AlphaStep AZ Series family, which also includes other series that use the same technology and software.
CVD stepper motor drivers are the recommended drivers for PKP Series high torque stepper motors for its ability to lower vibration and improve torque performance throughout its entire speed range. The latest update includes the addition of RS-485 communication and MEXE02 software support.
No matter how many functions a product offers, without an intuitive, easy-to-use software, those functions can be difficult to implement.
Remember the days when we used to go to in-person events, such as trade shows? Robot demos have always generated a lot of foot traffic in booths. What's better to illustrate the synchronism of closed-loop stepper motors than 3 motors working together to create one specific motion?
The viscosity change in liquids can vary the torque required for mixing. For AC asynchronous motors such as AC induction motors, the rated speed is affected by load torque fluctuations, which may cause inconsistency in the final product. Is there a better motor for the job?
For automated factories, motor failures mean lost production and lost revenue. Being able to identify the specific issue in advance and its location is critical to maintaining production efficiency. To be successful, extra sensors must be added to detect abnormalities. There may be an easier way.
