We’ve Reinvented The Step Motor

Z417-17 stator

Conventional stepper motor has magnet in the rotor. But our new patent pending design has no magnet on the rotor, but instead uses a ring magnet around the stator coils that is sandwiched between the stator stack. This drastically reduce the detent torque (unenergized drag torque) because the magnetic flux path is able to reach over the stator windings and go through only the outer edge of the rotor. Reducing detent torque improves accuracy, smooth operation and reduces noise. Modifying the magnet location does not change the dynamic torque and high accuracy.
