What is an Iron Core motor?

What is an Iron Core motor?

An Iron Core motor is a linear motor which is designed and constructed with an iron core. In iron core linear motors, the windings are mounted in an iron lamination stack. The number and length of the windings determine how much force the motor can produce. Based on the magnetic attraction, between the iron of the primary and the permanent magnets of the secondary, plus the magnetic force created in the windings. These linear motors offer extremely high continuous force for their size, starting at 60N for the small TM, all the way up to 3000N for the water cooled TBW powerhouse. Peak forces are even higher, reaching up to 6000N. With high continuous forces and good heat dissipation, iron core linear motors are ideal for pressing, molding, and machining applications. 

All this raw power comes in a surprisingly compact package. Its small footprint, modular design and high force density enable very flexible application designs. The ability to string multiple motors together, either in series or parallel, widens its range of applications even further.
