Why Efficiency Is Important

Posted by Dave Beckstoffer   Jul 17, 2018   0 Comments

Motor efficiency is the ratio between power output, which is mechanical, and power input, which is electrical.  Losses exist in all motors due to friction, heat, and materials, to name a few factors, so minimizing these losses is critical for applications that run off a battery.  The higher the efficiency of the motor, the longer the battery life during operation which results in longer time between charging.

High Speed Linear Actuators

Posted by Sandeep Cg   Mar 29, 2017   0 Comments

An in-depth discussion on high-speed linear actuators that use disc magnet motor (DMM) technology, and their uses in low-load applications such as sensor movement, positioning a laser beam, pick-and-place of electronic components, movement of XY tables, and other applications. Quiet operation and lower operating and maintenance costs make electric DMM linear actuators a viable option for these high-speed, low-load applications.

MotionCompassTM – Selecting the “right” motor for your application

Posted by Vinicius Cabrera   Jun 15, 2016   0 Comments

 

Are you an original equipment maker [OEM] looking for a specific motion control solution for your end application? Portescap caters to miniature motor requirements of a wide range of medical, diagnostic and industrial applications. This ranges from medical and surgical tools, lab automation equipment, dental drills and textile yarn guides to humanoid robots, surveillance camera systems, aircraft seat actuation, tattoo machines, and more. We help OEMs select the “right” miniature motor to power their applications. Our solutions include miniature dc and bldc motors, miniature can stack steppers and disc magnet motors as well as linear actuators with gear composite. These are usually customized to varying degrees, to suit requirements of the end application.

Since our motors are exposed to diverse operating conditions, selecting the right motor can be a daunting task. Certain applications need motors that can operate at extreme temperature ranges, whereas in some cases, OEMs are looking for motors with ability to withstand shocks and vibrations. Parameters like “length”, “diameter”, “torque”, “speed”,  “power density” etc  play an important role in motor selection. Thus, we’ve provided our clients and prospects with an online platform - MotionCompassTM, that helps them select the best-suited motor for their application.
