Until now, Stepper motors have been the most common form of electric motor used in instruments for many years for a variety of reasons. Stepper motors have become increasingly commoditized, making them readily available for manufacturing units.
Stepper motors don’t need to be fine-tuned to work at their best. Furthermore, utilizing stepper motors, scaling and motion commands are often quick and straightforward to execute for industrial sewing machines.
Instrument designers are looking for alternatives to stepper motors due to macro developments in industrial automation. The urge to increase throughput is the most pressing of them all. One of the simplest ways to cut the cost of a test is to lower the time it takes to run it. Another key cost-cutting strategy is to reduce the size of your footprint.
Buyers of modern instruments are also looking for things that are becoming more intelligent and aware. “Determinism” is a popular feature that allows the instrument to keep track of not only all positions, but also the state of motor operating factors including temperature and different fault circumstances.
Nowadays servo motors are becoming more and more popular among working professionals and manufacturing units.
Here are some reasons why servo motors are a popular choice
Servo motors are less noisy than manual ones – It is the major selling point of the servo motors. The manual ones used to make a lot of noise while operating but the servo motors on the other hand. Servo motors use feedback devices that use encoders to detect and fix errors in a system to fulfill a mechanism’s desired performance. If the machine is operated for a long time, the servo motor runs without vibration or noise, which helps to reduce operator fatigue.
Less energy usage – Servo motors are not only gentle on your ears, but they are also kind on your electricity bill. These motors consume approximately 70% less energy than clutch motors. For machinists who have their machines operating for long periods, it is a huge impact on electricity consumption. Less energy consumption equates to lower energy bills.
Servo motors are more compact and lightweight than clutch motors – You may need to relocate your industrial sewing machine to a different room or location for a variety of reasons. If your machine has a clutch motor, this chore becomes much more difficult because you’ll have to carry an additional 25- 30 kg with it. Servo motors are rather light in comparison, weighing between 5 and 10 kg. This provides you a little more leeway when it comes to moving your machine about.
It is very easy to change the speed – A new pulley must be purchased and installed on your machine to change the speed of a clutch motor. To change the speed of a servo motor, simply click a button on the control panel. A needle positioner with a servo motor can also be used, allowing the user to stop the needle in the up or down position as desired.
