Direct drive technology functionally replaces traditional servo motors that were coupled with bulky mechanical transmissions. By removing the mechanical parts that show the most wear, direct drive mechanisms dramatically ease system maintenance and lengthen motor lifespans. At the same time, this technology improves acceleration and precision, while cutting power consumption. The motor transfers power without loss from friction introduced by belts, chains, or gearboxes.
With options from linear to rotary, direct drive technology offers a robust solution that can be tailored to specific applications and performance needs. Direct drive technology is essential for many everyday applications, such as electrical fans, sewing machines, washing machines, and even hard drives, all of which require fast and precise positioning.
