Smoothen Out Step Motor Performance with NEMA 17 Dampers

Santa Clara, CA- December 2006 - Lin Engineering, the Step Motor Specialists, are pleased to introduce their new line of NEMA 17 dampers. These dampers are durable, long lasting, and can easily be mounted onto standard NEMA 17 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 movement 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.
