What is a torque motor? Four advantages

In this video, you get a short explanation of the characteristics and the advantages of a torque motor. So what is a brushless torque motor?

They are permanent-magnet direct drive motors that rotate along an axis. These motors can be used wherever a rotary movement is required and offer numerous advantages over conventional servo drives. The two main characteristics are a three-phase stator and a permanent magnet rotor which consists out of a minimum of four poles. Four advantages of using a brushless motor:

  • Hollow shaft
  • High precision and response
  • Thin rotor low inertia
  • Direct drive, you don't need a gearbox, therefore its response is direct and of high precision.

Torque motors can play a pivotal role in increasing the availability and cost-effectiveness of many different applications in industries like:

  • Factory automation
  • Semiconductors
  • Robotics
  • Printing
  • Machine tooling
