QuickChat: Alternatives For High-Cost Servo Motors

Aug. 23, 2023
High cost of servo motors has been an issue for machine manufacturers. Choosing brushless DC motors or AlphaStep AZ Series stepper motors could be an alternative solution for that.
Servos provide high performance all-around – position control, speed control, torque control. They are highly effective where necessary, but other options exist to keep costs down while still achieving desirable performance. Our AlphaStep AZ Series helps bridge the gap between servos and stepper motors. Brushless DC motors offer the controllability, but without the high cost because they specialize in speed control.
