Santa Clara, CA â€šÃ¢â‚¬â€ Lin Engineering are pleased to introduce the new 4518 NEMA 17 stepper motors. The 4518 series, designed exclusively with Lin Engineeringâ€šÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s patent pending Signature Series technology, is the new and improved version of the 4118 motors delivering both super torque and smooth motion.
The 4518 series is available in three different stack lengths starting with the nimble 4518S at 1.34â€šÃ¢â‚¬Â in thickness and the powerful 4518L measuring in at 1.89â€šÃ¢â‚¬Â. Depending on the stack length, these motors are capable of producing up to 83 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 4518 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.
Signature Series Technology:
Lin Engineeringâ€šÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new patent pending Signature Series technology is now available with the 4518 motor series. The Signature Series was developed exclusively to help reduce system resonance and provide overall smooth motion. Depending on the application, using motors with the Signature Series technology may result in up to 50% less resonance being produced.
