Design of a Kind of Novel Limited-Angle Brushless Torque Motor


Article Preview

A kind of 5Nm prototype LABLTM (Limited-Angle Brushless Torque Motor) is presented and designed. The basic structure of the motor is deliberated. The method of calculating the electromagnetic torque is provided. The Magnet software is used to optimize some important parameters of the motor. The prototype is fabricated. The test results of the prototype indicate that the LABLTM, with high torque and high reliability, does meet the requirements of direct drive actuator of precision welding equipment. It has a promising future in automatic control, electrical drive, etc.
