In order to produce mechanical energy, the electric motor contains several components that utilize a electromagnetic field to create the mechanical energy. They come in many different sizes and configurations. Some electric motors are powerful enough to drive entire vehicles and others are so tiny that they can fit in the smallest electronic devices.
Electric motors are among the most efficient means of producing mechanical energy available and are utilized in an incredible array of roles, owing to that efficiency and to the fact that they are very durable devices.
What types of electric motors exist?
Low voltage AC
Low voltage AC are notable for being very low cost, very efficient and for being used in a wide variety of different applications. These utilize alternating current as their power source, and can be produced in very large sizes capable of handling significant loads. Induction motors are suitable for all industries and applications and they fulfill all international and national efficiency regulations.3-phase electric motors, both foot mounted and flange mounted. Cast iron 3-phase motors are very robust and offer excellent value for money, a long lifespan, quiet running, minimal vibration and good resistance to corrosion. These run at 1,500rpm or 3,000rpm.
AC and DC servo motors
AC and DC servo motors for industrial, automated applications such as packaging, labeling, wrapping and cutting. We not only design our motors for durability in harsh environments, but we also provide a wide choice of high or low inertia motors with winding options, feedback devices and gearheads to match.
DV motors come in many different designs. There are brushed DC motors, permanent magnet DC motors and more. What they have in common is that DC motors all utilize direct current as their power source. This makes them suitable for applications where alternating current may not be the ideal solution like Flat-screen TVs (AC goes into the TV, which is converted to DC). AC and DC electric motors were both experimented with around the same period (beginning in the early 1800s) and both have a wide variety of different applications.
Stepper motors are types of high precision electric motors. What differentiates these motors from other types of electric motors is that they do not operate in a continuous fashion. The motors steps from position to position, stopping each time it reaches a new position and then continuing the sequence. These motors are capable of moving in forward or backward directions and provide feedback that makes them very easy to control. This units are commonly used in the packaging industry and in the food and beverage industry.
