Lin Engineering's Xtreme Torque 4418 Step Motors

The Xtreme Torque product line consists of a series of twophase hybrid step motors. Although thesesteppers are versatile enough to be used in a majority of motion controlapplications, the Xtreme Torque motors can be especially utilized inapplications where space and torque are invaluable. This step motor series is currently beingused in the following industries: medical,avionics, semiconductor and printing. The Xtreme Torque series has the potentialto revolutionize the way NEMA 17 motors are being used. In today's marketplace, size is of the utmostimportance. With the uniquemanufacturing process of this motor, it produces up to 35 percent more torquewithout requiring more space or power. Not only does this greatly increase spaceefficiency, it's also a great benefit in terms of energy savings. Engineers cannow reduce the overall size of their machines and decrease energy use at thesame time. Other NEMA 17 step motors assemble the two end caps to the stator insuch a way that space is not fully utilized internally. When space iscompromised, torque output is compromised. The Xtreme Torque seriesutilizes every millimeter of space to gain more torque than the standard motor,without increasing the overall length of the motor. Maximizing the realestate within the motor allows for the addition of more rotor laminations, andsince torque is directly proportional to the rotor length, that is how theincrease in torque is generated.
