Allied Motion Expands Line of Frameless MegafluxTM Direct Drive Torque Motors
Allied Motion Technologies Inc. Posted 09/14/2017
Smaller sizes added to accommodate wider range of OEM applications
Amherst, NY – Allied Motion Technologies announces the addition of smaller frame sizes to its line of MegafluxTM Frameless Direct Drive Torque Motors. Motors are 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 have higher pole-counts, much thinner axial dimensions, larger diameters than typical motors, and are designed to run at low-to-moderate speed. Being frameless, 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 route cables, light beams or other machine mechanics. Megaflux frameless torque motors are the ideal integrated solution for OEM designs, including semiconductor manufacturing equipment, robot base, shoulder and joint axes, machine tool spindle drives, telescope and antenna stabilized gimbal platforms, to name a few.
The Megaflux family of high-performance direct drive frameless brushless torque comprises twelve frame diameters each with five stack heights. The wide selection of sizes ensures that standard models will meet most OEM application needs, but customized versions are a specialty at Allied Motion.
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
