Extreme Stepper Motor Applications
- Monday, 06 May 2013
Have you heard of stepper motors? Most Engineers know that steppers are one of the more nimble motor technologies available but most haven't heard of the extreme conditions that steppers can be manufactured to operate in. We'll go through a number of different stepper motor configurations and show you what these engineering marvels are capable of!
- IP Ratings
- High/Low Temperatures
- Special Bearings
- Pre-load Configurations
Unique Form, Fit, Function
- Custom Mounting
- Shaft Modifications
Register for the Webinar on June 13th and get some insight from Application Specialists at Lin Engineering.
