New Frameless Axial Airgap Brushless Motors
Applimotion's AAG Series motors achieve low weight and zero cogging in an extremely low profile package. These motors offer smooth sinusoidal torque output versus angle and apply to almost any speed range. They are excellent for mechanical systems requiring variable speed brushless motor control, or precision positioning with the use of a high resolution encoder. They also work well with sensorless motor controllers making a simple three wire solution. Axial Airgap (AAG) motors have been utilized in custom designs for military, aerospace, computer peripheral devices and medical devices for many years. Applimotion is bringing this technology to new applications by offering custom designs in 6-8 week lead time, from your requirements to actual samples in this short period. Typical applications for these motors include scanning equipment, inspection machines, and small integrated pumps. The product is also well suited to rotating existing shafts without having to couple a traditional motor in line. AAG series motors can be optimized for standard three phase brushless motor controllers from 5-48 volts with speeds ranging from 0.1 to 20,000 rpm. A unique feature of these motors is their low profile geometry. 5mm axial thickness can be achieved at up to 300mm diameter. Their frameless construction makes them ideal for adapting to mechanical designs that don't currently have motors and can benefit from rotation about an axis. Applimotion, Inc. is located in Loomis, CA. The company specializes in cost effective solutions for unique brushless motor applications. With expertise in motor design and motion engineering, Applimotion engineers create application specific motors for OEM customers. Whether it's a low volume performance driven application or a high volume value driven off shore manufactured motor, Applimotion has a solution.
