Small Gearmotor Drives Large Format Printer
An original equipment manufacturer in the print industry required a brushless DC control and gearmotor system to turn a very large metal cylinder that feeds media into the printer. After the printing is complete, the media will be rewound with a second, identical motorized winding system.
To save space and simplify assembly, Bodine engineers suggested using a Bodine Integra gearmotor, which includes a built-in speed control and tach output.
By taking advantage of the wealth of relevant technical information at bodineelectric.com and by employing our engineering team’s design expertise, the OEM found a gearmotor that could meet all required performance parameters
- Custom low-voltage BLDC, type 22B/SR-Z gearmotor
- Built-in speed control and tach output
- Factory preset current limit to set stall torque
- All-steel gear train for long life during frequent stall conditions
