New Stepper Motors Use a Neodymium Magnet in its Rotor Design

Press Release Summary:

The PKP Series of stepper motors from Oriental Motors was recently expanded to include a 2-phase Flat Type and a 5-phase TS Geared stepper motor.  The stepper motors now use a neodymium magnet in its rotor design which allows for a lower vibration when compared to the original PKP stepper motors. The 2-phase Flat Type is available in 2 frame sizes at 1.65 inches or 2.22 inches. The 5-phase TS Geared features a spur gear design.


Original Press Release:

New Flat Type and TS Geared PKP Series Stepper Motors

Ultra-compact, lightweight and stepper motors with improved torque and low backlash join the PKP Series.

Torrance, CA – October 12, 2018

Oriental Motor is pleased to expand the PKP Series stepper motor product line-up with the introduction of the PKP Series 2-phase Flat Type and PKP Series 5-phase TS Geared.

The new 2-phase Flat Type is an ultra-compact and light weight entry to the PKP Series of stepper motors. It is available in two frame sizes; 1.65" (42 mm) or 2.22" (56.4 mm) frame size. The 1.65” frame size Flat Type has a motor body length of 17 mm while the 2.22” frame size has a motor body length of just 16 mm. The Flat Type PKP Series stepper motor can be installed in a narrow space due to its flat profile design where conventional stepper motors would not fit. This makes the Flat Type an ideal solution for applications that require a low profile motor with high position accuracy and low torque requirement.

The new 5-phase PKP Series with TS gearhead is made with a simple spur gear design. The TS type gearhead has the same level of accuracy when compared to our tapered (TH) type without the added cost of tapering. This reduces backlash and improves both torque and high speed performance.

The new PKP Series stepper motors now uses neodymium magnet in its rotor design, which allows for lower vibration compared to the original PKP Series motors. For the optimal results, use the new PKP stepper motors with their respective CVD bipolar driver.
