Types of Stepper Motor and Their Significances

A stepper motor is an electromechanical device that induces mechanical movements by converting electrical pulses. It is driven by digital pulses instead of continuously applied voltage, and it can step or rotate in fixed angular increments. Stepper motors are typically used in applications that require position control. They are assumed to follow digital instructions when used in a stepper motor/driver/controller system design. They are classified as open-loop systems due to their lack of feedback to keep control of the position. Stepper motors can be classified into three basic types:

Stepper Motors : A Motor for CNC Equipment

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) equipment are machines that are typically used in manufacturing. CNC stands for ‘computer numerical control’ and machines that use this technology rely on computers to control tools like lathes, routers, grinders, and mills. Precise movement is required to ensure accuracy and reliability, and this is one of the reasons why stepper motors are preferred for CNC equipment. A stepper motor is an electromechanical device that performs mechanical movements by converting electrical pulses. The most preferred types of stepper motors are – linear stepper motors, geared stepper motors, PM stepper motors etc.
