Frameless brushless torque motor with low inertia moving coil assembly

An unhoused arc segmented frameless brushless torque motor, TWR-070-410-1150-3PH, has been developed by H2W, with low inertia moving coil assembly for high angular acceleration applications. The rotary 3-phase brushless motor, also known as a rotary servo motor, is a direct drive motor that is well-suited for limited or unlimited, closed loop servo, rotary motion applications.

It can generate a continuous/peak torque of 480”/lbs (53Nm) to 1440”/lbs (159Nm). It has been designed to have a 70° rotation and operate on a 20” (500mm) radius, but additional modular magnet tracks (33° each) can be added to increase angular displacement. It is capable of very precise position, velocity, and acceleration control when coupled with a rotary encoder for position feedback.

The vacuum encapsulated moving motor coil assembly moves through a gap in the long U shaped magnet assembly. A customer supplied bearing system is required to guide the moving coil assembly and to maintain a .050" (1.25mm) clearance between the magnet and the coil assembly. There is no attractive force between the motor coil and the magnet assembly.

The 3-phase motor coil assembly can be commutated trapezoidally using integral hall effects or commutated sinusoidally using software commutation in conjunction with the appropriate amplifier, motion controller and encoder feedback. The power to the motor, from a brushless servo amplifier, is supplied via a high-flex motor power cable.
