Application Note: Extreme Customization, Well-maintained Tooling, and Accuracy


Take a look behind the scenes at how Nippon Pulse America Inc. re-designed one of its standard linear stepper motors to replace a competitor motor that was no longer meeting customer resolution or accuracy requirements. This application note showcases major modifications to the original motor design that were shown through testing to reduce step errors by more than 50 percent while also increasing precision over the original motor. It also includes a discussion of part tolerance and tool maintenance and how they affect quality throughout the production life cycle.

Nippon Pulse’s standard linear stepper motors are available in 25 and 35mm diameter sizes, with three thread pitch options and unipolar or bipolar windings. Customization options are available, as are fully custom motor designs for large or small batch customers. Nippon Pulse America Inc. is ISO 9001:2015 and 14001:2015 certified.
