Brushless motors for industrial equipment

Click to Expand

The design of brushless DC motors makes them well suited to a wide range of industrial applications. Brushless DC motors harness electric commutation using permanent magnets to power the motor. As a result, BLDC industrial motors operate free of the sparks and friction generated by traditional brushed motors. 

Some of the more common mechanical applications of motors in industrial equipment include:

  • Linear motors
  • Servomotors
  • Industrial actuators 
  • Feed motors
  • Extruder drive motors
  • Other CNC tooling applications

These mechanical components perform essential functions in a variety of industrial machinery. Examples of equipment that uses BLDC motors include:

  • Brushless industrial motors are commonly used in windmills to help control and stabilize blade motion. 
  • Industrial robots also rely on brushless DC motors to carry out precision manufacturing tasks — servo motors operate the robot’s joints while encoder-equipped motors help to power the machine’s arm. 
  • Many simple ancillary machines utilize brushless DC motors as well, especially in factory settings. BLDC motors power conveyor belts, machine presses, and machine tools.
  • BLDC motors are integral in iron and steel production and are responsible for powering cold rolling mills. 

Brushless industrial motors also facilitate the function of a variety of heavy equipment, including:

  • Automated guided vehicles (AGVs)
  • Cargo ships
  • Construction equipment
  • Cranes
  • Drainage pumps
  • Mining equipment
  • Nut runners
  • Offshore oil drills
  • Solar arrays
  • Stage lighting
