MORRISVILLE, N.C., Oct. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Buehler Motor, Inc. (http://www.buehlermotor.com), a global company focused on the development and production of technically challenging mechatronic drive solutions, has improved on its already well-established DC technology with the replacement of its 40-millimeter motor. Successfully used for many years in office applications, the new 40-millimeter design is characterized by a metal brush-end shield and a 5-millimeter shaft designed to provide significantly higher overall power output and lifespan.
The improved motor takes the thermal and electromagnetic characteristics of the previous design to a higher level with a new, seven-slotted armature allowing for maximum copper fill. Additionally, the motor's power density was significantly improved using the latest generation Ferrite magnets. The motor features simple adjustment options, such as the output shaft, which can be easily modified to specific customer demands.
"The new 40-millimeter motor is an example of Buehler's commitment to continually improving its design and technology to provide industry leading products and services," said Bob Riedford, president and general manager of Buehler Motor, Inc. "With its increased robustness, power and flexibility the new motor is not limited to office and paper-handling applications. There are additional potential applications in the building automation, medical and general industries that will benefit from this improved motor."
The length and shape of the motor extensions on both sides enable greater flexibility in a wide range of applications. Drive elements such as pinions and pulleys may also be incorporated to the motor, and standardized lead wires that exit either axially or radially give the motor additional flexibility in various mounting positions. The motor can be further customized with connectors in desired wire lengths.
Other custom solution options include the addition of an optical or magnetic encoder, electromagnetic brakes or a combination with gearboxes. The 40-millimeter motor is available in three lengths for a wide spectrum of power capability, a choice of sleeve bearings or high-quality ball bearings to fit specified load condition, and chokes and capacitors are available to electromagnetically suppress the motor.
