Uses of a Nema Stepper Motor
Uses of a Nema Stepper Motor

Nema stepper motor, planetary gear motor, closed loop stepper motor

A Nema stepper motor is diverse in its uses; however, some of the most common uses of a Nema stepper motor are as follows:

  • 3D printing equipment
  • Copiers
  • Textile machines
  • Gaming machines
  • Printing presses
  • Small robotics
  • Medical imaging machinery
  • Fax machines
  • CNC milling machines
  • While these uses are some of the most common ones, they are just a fraction of what the Nema stepper motors can actually be used for. To be more specific, all and any application that needs highly accurate speed control, low speed torque and positioning can benefit from the use of a Nema stepper motor. Nema stepper motors come in 4, 6 and 8 lead configurations for unipolar and bipolar operations.

    planetary gear motor

    In this category, you will also find the planetary gear motor that mimics a planetary rotation system. There is an input shaft driving the central gear, also called sun gear, which turns the surrounding gears which are also called planet gears. The planetary gear motors feature low-weight and compact design.

    closed loop stepper motor

    Then there’s the closed loop stepper motor that merges the advantages of both servo and stepper motor technology. Close loop stepper motors run more smoothly than the other stepper motors and have low resonance as well.
