High Performance Motors for Harsh Environments
Empire Magnetics provides quality motor products designed to perform in environments and applications where ordinary motors are unsuitable. The product line features 1.8o hybrid permanent magnet stepping motors and selected brushless servo motors for positioning applications that demand sealed motors for wet, dusty or hazardous environments, specialty motors for vacuum, radiation and extreme temperature operation, or high-power stepper and servo gearmotors.
Choosing Standard, Modified, or Custom Motors
When you need a prime mover for a new machine design, you typically have three choices: use a standard, off-the-shelf motor; modify an existing motor; or a design a new motor. Each approach has significant advantages and disadvantagesthat can affect its performance, lead-time, and cost, all of which are summarized in the table.
Motor Designs to Survive Hostile Environments
New step motor designs -- specially developed for motor-hostile environments -- can reliably withstand the effects of radiation, underwater operation, vacuum operation, and extremely high and low temperatures, among other conditions. Accordingly, these motors are the key to a wide range of new motion control opportunities.
Empire Magnetics' waterproof step motors are specifically designed to address the corrosion and sealing rotating shafts and other fluid entry points. Features include integrated design/solution to provide reliability in a water environment.
We offer a wide variety of speciality motors for vacuum, radiation, and extreme temperature operation. Empire Magnetics provides quality motor products designed to perform in environments and applications where ordinary motors are unsuitable.
High-Power Stepper and Servo Gearmotors
Powerful stepper motors and Servo gearboxs are offered in many frame sizes for the harshest conditions.
