Santa Clara, CA - August 2008 - Lin Engineering, the Step Motor Specialists, are pleased to introduce their new line of dampers. These dampers are durable, long lasting, and can easily be mounted onto standard NEMA 23 step motors.
As motors step, inertia makes the rotor oscillate about its new position. This natural back and forth movement might sometimes contribute to the erratic motion of motors. Adding a Lin damper to the step motor's shaft translates into smaller oscillations and thus, smoother motion. This reduced step response time can ultimately result in much improved motor performance.
Installing Lin's dampers is a simple and pain free process; all that's needed is a M4 type screw. In addition, these dampers are relatively maintenance free. Due to the sealing process that they undergo while being manufactured, accumulation of dust and debris becomes an afterthought. In addition, with the high quality components being used during the manufacturing process, Lin's dampers are very durable and long lasting.
