Motors, Encoders & Gearboxes(21 companies)
Motors convert electrical signals into a rotating, mechanical motion used to drive equipment. Servo motors are a specific type of motor commonly used in packaging equipment, designed to provide feedback to a drive or motion control based on actual real-world conditions. This feedback enables precise positive control over various motions on a packaging machine. Encoders convert shaft motions into output signals to provide feedback on the actual speed of a rotating shaft. Gearboxes or gear reducers alter speed and torque to better control loads.
