Servo Motors Overview
Servo motors are used to control motion in a variety of electro-mechanical industries, from robotics to CNC manufacturing to aerospace technology. Servo motors are part of a closed-loop system, known as a servo motor system, that doesn't use a stepper motor. Servo motor systems are comprised of several parts namely a control circuit, servo motor, shaft, potentiometer, drive gears (depending on the type of servomotor), amplifier and either an endocer or resolver. Servo motors must have the ability to:
- operate at a range of speeds without overheating;
- operate at zero speed while retaining enough torque to hold a load in position; and
- operate a very low speeds for long periods witho
The three basic types of servo motors used in servo motor systems are:
- AC servo motors (based on induction motor designs);
- DC servo motors (based on direct current motor designs); and
- Brushless servo motors (based on synchronous motor designs).
As a part in constant motion, servomotors often break down and need repair. In the manufacturing industry, a downed servo motor can disrupt production and compromise scheduling. In today's economy, you can't afford to be behind on schedule or miss a deadline.
That's why TigerTek provides a 30,000 square-foot repair facility that is a UL approved, electrical apparatus repair center. TigerTek tests the stator windings, replaces bearings, repairs the armature, turns and undercuts the commutator, rewinds the motor, dips and bakes the windings and fully tests all the electro-mechanical properties of your servo motor. Better yet, TigerTek's technicians are factory trained, having performed thousands of servo moto repairs. Add to that TigerTek's rush priority options; new, reconditioned and exchange units; free quotes upon request; computerized job tracking; 24-hour-365-day service; a 1 year in-service warranty and run tests on all repairs returned with a detailed failure report - You can't lose by choosing TigerTek for all your servo motor repairs.
