In this presentation, Lin Engineering will cover common stepper motor applications, issues that can arise within those applications, and stepper modifications that can help resolve those problems. Stepper motors are used in a multitude of applications in many different industries. Steppers can be applied to printers, robotics, security cameras, conveyor belts and aircraft in industries like automation, medical, surveillance, and renewable energy just to name a few.
Each application is unique and the stepper motor must adapt to each situation. Due to the mechanical and environmental requirements from each system, a number of issues and failures can arise when stepper motors are introduced into such applications. Lin Engineering will discuss the root causes of issues like vibration, excessive heat, Back EMF, inertia mismatch and step loss that are seen while using a stepper motor. Lin Engineering will also explain how to resolve the problems through modifications and describe the effects of adding gearboxes, encoders, lead screws, vacuum and additional environmental modifications to a stepper motor.
