In 4 steps the right Tecnotion motor for your application

At Tecnotion, we know that finding the right linear motor for a given application can be a daunting task. It involves a large number of interconnected design choices. This tool is designed to make that process as easy as possible for you. It will help you select the right kind of direct drive motor in just 4 steps. Figure out which amplifier to use, and create detailed reports containing all critical values and performance graphs. With a click of a button, you can save yourself hours of doing calculations by hand.

The best motor for the job

Most tools on the market only allow you to enter your application data and have the software tell you which linear motor it thinks you need. We realize that things aren't always that simple in practice. For any given application, it is likely that there are multiple motor types that can handle the task, but which one is the best choice? It all depends on what you are trying to accomplish. Are you favoring maximum velocity above everything else? Perhaps you are going for maximum efficiency or cost-effectiveness.

Iterative approach

The software doesn't know your goals, which is why we decided to go for an iterative approach towards simulating your drive task. At all times during the process, you can change movement profiles, application parameters, and motor types and the software calculate the new results on the fly. This way you can quickly experiment with a multitude of scenarios and quickly find the one that best suits your application.

Our support team will help you along the way by finding the right motor for your application when you don’t find the right answers in our simulation tool. Don’t hesitate to contact us.
