Allied Motion: Direct drive torque motors

Allied Motion Technologies announces the addition of smaller frame sizes to its line of Megaflux frameless direct drive torque motors, now available in sizes ranging from 60 to 792 mm in outside diameter, with multiple stack lengths for each diameter.

Brushless torque motors are designed to produce high torque values compared to standard brushless motors. They havehigher pole-counts, much thinner axial dimensions, larger diameters than typical motors, and are designed to run at low-to-moderatespeed. Beingframeless,Megaflux kit motors (consisting of a matched rotor and stator pair) are ideally suited for OEM designs where they can be integrated directly into the driven axis.

A large open-center aperture provides free passage to routecables, light beams or other machine mechanics.Megaflux frameless torque motors are the ideal integrated solution for OEM designs, including robot base, shoulder and joint axes, and machine tool spindle drives, to name a few.

The Megaflux family of high-performance direct drive frameless brushless torque comprises 12 frame diameters, each with five stack heights.

Megaflux highlights include:

  • 12 standard frame sizes from 60 to 792 mm (2.4 to 31.2 in.) outside diameter
  • Continuous stall torque from 0.3 up to 2020 Nm (1490 lb-ft)
  • Clear ID aperture from 36.2 up to 582 mm (22.9 in.)
  • Three winding designs: 48, 150, and 300 vDC
