Embedded Motion Technology - Frameless  Mounting Considerations

  • The benefits of Improved System Performance, Reduced Maintenance, Smaller Mechanical Footprint, Higher System Efficiency are understood
  • Customer still has a key question in mind …  
  • I like the frameless design concept but how do I mount the motor components into my machine?

Mechanical Mounting Considerations

  • Customer’s own bearings
  • Customer’s shafting / drivetrain

After the motor and winding designation have been selected, the motor design should be incorporated in the layout phase of the mechanical design. A frameless brushless type motor may be either totally frameless, framed with an armature adapter machined to fit the customer’s existing shaft, or partially housed with a mounting flange or tabs for mounting the stator. 

This article describes how to remove the outer cable jacket from the AKMH motor cable and solidly clamp it to the servo drive’s grounding bracket. For more information, see the application note: AKMH Cable Modification Application Note
