Need more Torque from your Stepper
Do you have any space or power constraints? Would you like to get more torque for your application? Lin Engineering has developed the 4418 Xtreme Torque stepper motor series in order to meet these requirements. This patented design utilizes the unique manufacturing expertise and capabilities of Lin Engineering's manufacturing facility in Morgan Hill, CA. With this line of steppers, you can get up to 35% more torque when compared to steppers of similar mechanical dimensions.
The 4418 stepper motor series is available in 5 different stack lengths; from the extremely nimble 4418F which comes in at just 1.02" (25.9mm) in length to the powerful 4418L which boasts 100 oz-in of holding torque at just 1.89" (48mm). As an added value, Lin Engineering is able to customize the motor performance and create new windings at no extra cost; various bipoloar and unipolar windings are available based on the needs of the application. Additionally, Lin Engineering is able to offer a number of mechanical customizations such as shafts and wiring harnesses.
The 4418 stepper series is suggested in applications where size is a factor and load capacities are critical to precision system operation. Industries currently benefiting from the features of this step motor in their applications are: medical, printing, imaging, optical, and robotics.
