Reduce operation cost with high performance servo motor

Regardless of the type and size of the industry industrial automation system is the key to the improved production, human safety and accuracy. Over the past few decades, servo motors (เซอร์ โว มอเตอร์ which is the term in Thai) are widely used in industrial applications to replace conventional AC motors and stepper motors.  Moreover, the introduction of servo motors has significantly reduced the use of hydraulic and pneumatic systems in various applications such as Robotics, Conveyor Belts, Camera Auto Focus, Robotic Vehicle, Solar Tracking System, Metal Cutting & Metal Forming Machines, Woodworking/CNC, etc. Servo motors are relatively small in size but have built-in control circuitry and have good power and are well suited to precision to applications where accurate control of motor speed, position and torque is required.

Effective servo motor

With the advancement of technology servo motors come in various sizes and three main types namely positional rotation, continuous rotation and linear. Some of the potential benefits of the servo motor are

  • High efficiency and accuracy
  • High output power relative to their size
  • More constant torque at higher speed
  • Closed-loop control
  • Quiet operation
  • Highly reliable
  • High ratio of torque to inertia
  • High acceleration
  • Torque control

Things to consider

In today’s aggressive and competitive world it is crucial to invest on the latest technology and indusial automation system. Selecting servo for an application is commonly known as sizing and before taking any decision consider certain factors and get the expected benefits

  • look at your application requirements and environment factors
  • determine how fast must the servo rotate from one position to another
  • define what the application’s motion profile looks like
  • find out how much torque the motion application needs
  • calculate the motion system’s optimal inertia ratio
  • determine what kind of servo gearing will work

Get proper training

Before choosing any industrial automation manufacturer ensure the company provides comprehensive support, training and consultation so that you can make utmost use of your investment.
