Pittman brushless-dc servomotors’ coilwinded geometry in slotless motors is said to deliver more power using less energy. These micromotors suit medical devices, instruments, and dental drills. The smallest (size 05) motor performs with minimal vibration at high speeds, and the heavy-duty (size 18) motor can be customized for specific performance. Size ranges from 0.500 in. to 1.750 in., with speeds to 44,525 rpm and continuous torque up to 42.6 oz-in. For details, visit: ametektechnicalproducts.com.
