Santa Clara, CA–Lin Engineering introduces the new 4418 NEMA 17 stepper motors. The 4418 series, designed exclusively utilizing Lin Engineering’s unique manufacturing capabilities and expertise, provides up to 35% more torque when compared to motors of similar mechanical dimensions.
The 4418 series is available in three different stack lengths starting with the nimble 4418S at 1.17” in thickness and the powerful 4418M measuring in at 1.58”. Depending on the stack length, these motors are capable of producing up to 68 oz-in of holding torque. As an added value, Lin Engineering is able to customize the motor performance and create new windings at no extra cost; various bipoloar and unipolar windings are available based on the needs of the application. Additionally, Lin Engineering is able to offer a number of mechanical customizations such as shafts and wiring harnesses.
The new 4418 series is suggested in applications where size is a factor and load capacities are critical to precision system operation. Industries currently benefiting from the features of this motor in their applications are: medical, printing, imaging, optical, and robotics.
