Geared Stepper Motor Nema 23 High Torque Gear Ratio 15:1 214 kg-cm
Stepper motors are great for position control. They can be found in desktop printers, plotters, 3d printers, CNC milling machines, and anything else requiring precise position control. These are a special segment of brushless motors. They are purposely built for high-holding torque. This high-holding torque gives the user the ability to incrementally “step” to the next position. This results in a simple positioning system that doesn’t require an encoder. This makes stepper motor controllers very simple to build and use.
This particular stepper has a Nema 23 frame size with Gear Ratio of 15:1, and has a holding torque of 214 kg-cm.
Here are a few applications where they are often found:
- CNC machines
- 3D printer/prototyping machines (e.g. RepRap)
- Laser cutters
- Pick and place machines
- Linear actuators
- Hard drives
