What is a linear motor?

General

Answer: If you were to slice a rotary servo motor and lay it flat, you would have, essentially, a linear motor. The rotor with permanent magnets becomes the stationary part of the linear motor (also called the secondary, or magnet plate), and the stator, which contains the coil windings, becomes the moving part (also called the primary, or coil unit).

What are the benefits of a linear motor?

General

Answer: Linear motors are also referred to as direct drive units, since the load is directly coupled to the motor. This eliminates the need for elastic components such as gearboxes and couplings, which introduce backlash and error in the motion. And because they do not rely on mechanical drive components such as ball screws, belts, and rack and pinions, linear motors have a much higher accuracy and repeatability, with no velocity ripple.
