The Infinity Series of low-profile, direct drive motors from Applimotion lets OEMs move light payloads in smooth and accurate arc-shaped and full 360-degree rotary motion profiles. Ultra-thin arc-shaped motor segments can be used individually or interconnected to create exact partial arc segment motion or full 360-degree rotary motion. Modular construction allows for virtually unlimited diameter and large through holes, a level of flexibility generally not possible with conventional motor designs.
The Infinity Series arc-shaped motors offer the right combination of torque, speed and smooth motion in flexible form factors and are ideal for low-profile, lightweight gimbals, broadband communication antennas, medical scanning, diagnostic imaging, inspection and metrology equipment.
Specifications include continuous torque from 0.65 to 63 Nm, peak torque from 1.95 to 190 Nm, outer diameters ranging from 112 to 765 mm, axial length (or height) from 20 to 40 mm, with peak currents from 3.4 to 6.6 A.
Direct drive technology eliminates the size, cost and positional errors associated with redundant bearings and gearing. All models are compatible with a wide range of controllers and drives. Windings and form factors can be customized to meet application requirements.
