In everything from hand tools to desktop and factory equipment—whether for production, testing, or everyday laboratory use—smaller and more powerful motors are needed for motion and positioning systems. As equipment gets exponentially smaller, the challenges of designing devices to fit this equipment grows. The 106 Series hybrid stepper motor provides micro-stepping capabilities in a small package that also offers high holding torque and high accuracy. (Image source: Lin Engineering) Of course, companies have been designing and manufacturing small stepper motors for a long time. Yet small enough motors still don’t exist for many applications, which forces buyers into a corner and causes designs to be larger than necessary—ultimately affecting user satisfaction. On the occasion when motors can be located that are small enough, these products lack th...
