Stepper motors for CNC router, cnc motor
Stepper motors are an alternative option to servo motors for powering most types of CNC machinery. CNC applications include a very wide range of manufacturing processes in which pre-programmed computer software controls the operation and physical movement of machine tools in factory and fabrication settings.
While stepper motors in CNC applications are often seen as a more ‘budget’ alternative to servo motors, this is an oversimplification based on knowledge of older technologies that isn’t always strictly accurate today. Stepper motors are indeed typically less expensive than servo motors for the same power, but modern versions tend to be just as versatile. As a result, stepper motors are far more commonly available, and found in a much wider range of machines and systems, from machine tools to desktop computers and automobiles.
CNC stepper motors also have one very key advantage over servo motors in that they don’t require an encoder. Servo motors are inherently more complex to understand and operate than stepper versions, and part of this complexity is the fact that they include an encoder, which is more prone to failure than most components in the otherwise reliable servo motor. Stepper motors don’t need an encoder, theoretically giving them even greater reliability than servos.
Furthermore, the fact that stepper motors are also brushless (unlike servo motors) means that they won’t require regularly scheduled replacement, provided their bearings remain in good working order.
Cloudray Stepper Motor Series has set the standard for quality, reliability, and durability in stepping motors. The precision of our Torque Power motors is matched only by the dependability of their performance. All Torque Power motors are bi-directional and totally enclosed with permanently lubricated ball bearings for long-lasting, smooth operation.
Cloudray stepper motor series are widely used in medical instruments, robotics, 3D printers, extruders, laser cutters, engraving machine, textile equipment, packaging machinery, CNC machines, etc.
High Torque, High Precision and Long life is Cloudray's core advantages
Low vibration,Low heating, No loss of step
Fast Response,Better Acceleration Performance
Thanks to a robust design they can be selected for the harshest environments. Precise, open-loop, speed and position control can be achieved with the application of full step, half step, or microstepping electronics.
Higher Resolution，Avoidance of Resonance Regions
Stepping angle is adjustable( rang in 18°±5%）， 0.9 °stepper motor's stepping angle is smaller, fineness is higher and positioning is more accurate.Avoiding vibration,runs more smoothly and gets lower noise.
Sturdy structure, extremely long life
High quality materials including bearings and shaft made in Japan
Robust assembly, high speed range, and exceptional performance in even the harshest environments make Cloudray Stepper Motors the perfect solution for demanding positioning applications.
Short length and light weight allow them to be used in highly integrated systems
Stepper motor application
Cloudray stepper motor and Stepping Motor Driver are widely used in engraving machine, cutting plotter, textile machine, 3D printer, medical devices,stage lighting equipment, robot, CNC machine, music fountain and other industrial automatic equipment.
