1 How to Design A Better Servo Control System (Fall 2007)

Servo control system engineers typically work designing new systems or redesigning existing systems for conveyors, pick and place machines, gantries, machine tools or other equipment.

2 Gearbox Innovation Evolves in Step with Expanding Servo Market (September 2018)

Approximately one quarter of all servo motors around the world require some type of gear reduction in their applications. From large satellite dishes to precision medical devices, gearboxes boost torque and reduce speed for servos in order for them to be sized more efficiently. While gearbox fundamentals haven't changed much over the past 20 years, their effectiveness has improved significantly, driven mostly by the need to accommodate advancements in servo technology.

3 Integrated Hybrid Servo Motors vs. Standard Integrated Servo Motors (December 2018)

Different motor types favor different application areas. No single style has advantages in all application spaces. Direct drive applications favor hybrid servos while high-speed, geared down applications tend to favor the conventional servo motors.

4 Servo Technology - Centralized or Decentralized (October 2014)

Which architecture type delivers the best technical and commercial advantages ?

5 Hybrid Transverse Magnetic Flux Motors - AKA Stepper Motors and Hybrid Servos (March 2020)

This is the first of a series of articles on permanent magnet transverse magnetic flux motors - AKA step motors. These articles will be covering the development history and the various drive technologies used with these motors - both open and closed loop.

6 Step vs. Servo - Selecting the Best (October 2018)

Over the many years, there have been many technical papers and articles about which motor is the best. The short and sweet answer is - let's talk about the application. More recently a number of papers and articles have appeared that compared each motor's advantages and disadvantages in generic or specific terms. Many times, the methods used to drive and control these motors are not completely described due to the many control schemes available for use. A few articles focus on just the open loop step motor and the closed loop servo motor advantages and disadvantages in a laundry list format. This article is attempting to "drill down" into the reasons why and to describe how it is done.

7 Servo Motor Performance at Stepper Motor Prices (April 2015)

Enhancing production with — and for — less is the standing order in today’s manufacturing world. Speeding up production while at the same time looking for ways, to cut, for example, energy costs, is a tricky equation with no single answer; where and how management goes about achieving that can take several paths.

8 Closing the Loop around a Transverse Flux Hybrid Step Motor (August 2020)

Transverse magnetic flux motors -- also known as step motors -- become Hybrid Servos when you operate them closed loop. This is the same transformation that happens between running a 3-phase synchronous motor from line voltage as opposed to running it closed loop as a brushless servo. In the case of hybrid motors, there are many degrees of what is advertised as "closed loop," and thus significant differences in the performance improvements seen.

9 Soft Drink Solutions (December 2009)

Servo system from Bosch-Rexroth helps create more efficient beverage palletizer.

10 Motor Sizing Unusual Loads (February 2020)

One of the fun parts of the motion industry is involvement in popular movies! Motor specifications can be a bit rough: "I need to spin a 120-pound actor (and chair) 180 degrees in one-half second. He will be sitting up-right."

11 Open Loop Step Motor Error Sources - What Closing the Loop Corrects (December 2021)

A look at several Two-Phase Hybrid Step Motors and their dominant error sources, and comment on how the errors are overcome by true servo operation of these motors.

12 Transverse Magnet Flux AKA Hybrid Step Motor Driver Techniques (June 2020)

The transverse flux permanent magnet motor -- also known as a hybrid step motor or hybrid servo motor -- has a wide range of performances, depending upon how you drive these motors, and whether you operate them in open loop or one of the many variants of closed loop methods you use. In this third installment we will cover some of the many ways to drive these motors, as well as how these choices affect the performance of these motors.

23 Industry News (October 2013)

The complete Industry News section from the October 2013 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

24 Brushless PM-Motors Speed Ahead (June 2014)

There are more brushless PM motors being made every day. These brushless PM motors are smaller in size -- i.e., less than 50 watts in power output found in hard-disk drives, CD and DVD players and many portable medical devices. Servo systems with brushless PM motors ranging from 50 watts to 50 kilowatts are now challenging the larger electric motor applications. A few manufacturers have pushed brushless PM motors above 200 kW.

25 Hybrid Transverse Flux Magnetic Motors - How to Measure Parameters (September 2020)

These versatile, low-cost and high-torque motors may be used open loop or as full servos - and several levels in between. The motor stator laminate designs divide these motors into those optimized for full stepping, and those optimized for micro stepping and servo operation. These differences can be easily measured with basic meters and oscilloscopes. Motor to motor variations can also be easily measured, and motor inductance at nominal speed and current can also be determined.
