The 3 Why’s of StepSERVO Motors

May 12, 2017 - Rockford, IL  -  Posted by PBC News

Smart MotorThe primary goal of every manufacturing facility is to maximize efficiency. Improvements and upgrades are vital for increasing overall performance, helping to gain an edge on competitive industry leaders. Combining speed, quality, and reliability, StepSERVO motors can provide that edge.

Speed & Performance

StepSERVO Motors offer a closed-loop design that provides a peak torque range, helping to maintain accuracy. The closed-loop design also increases the available torque of the motor by 85 percent at speeds under 750 rpm, making it more economically efficient by consuming less power.

Quality & Positional Precision

Traditional stepper motors can lose position if the maximum torque output is exceeded. The StepSERVO motorfeatures a 20,000-count encoder and closed loop system that helps the motor know its position at all times, providing better accuracy with higher repeatability. 


All electronics for the StepSERVO Motor are on board with the motor, eliminating the need for cables and wires. The simplified design pulls the electronics out of the motor so it can run 50 percent cooler with 67 percent less energy. This makes the motor a more reliable solution for velocity and torque control applications, such as: 

  • Labeling
  • Material handling 
  • 3D printing 
  • Automated assembly 
  • Pressing 
  • Capping and screwing
  • CNC machining 
  • Medical devices
  • Food and beverage
  • Semiconductor machinery
