4 reasons why Piezo LEGS® precision motor should replace traditional stepper motors
The new paradigm is here. Piezo LEGS® precision motor is a product that has proven its ability in many of the industrial markets and has emerged as a serious competitor to conventional stepper motor solutions. We list four good reasons to replace your traditional stepper motor with the groundbreaking Piezo LEGS® piezoelectric/precision motor.
1. Movement free from backlash
A stepper motor with anti-backlash nut on the lead screw tend to have problems with repeatability over time because of wear, which results in mechanical play. The friction-based direct drive of Piezo LEGS® eliminates backlash and guarantees free movement over the whole lifetime of the motor.
2. No power consumption at standstill
The self-clamping principle of Piezo LEGS® means that no brake is needed to hold a position, and there is no power draw at standstill. The traditional stepper motor cannot compete with the mechanical stiffness and energy effectiveness of the Piezo LEGS® precision motor.
3. Piezo LEGS® is more precise
While a stepper motor needs to overcome internal static friction (stiction) of the anti-backlash nut, and struggle with fine positioning on a micrometer level, the Piezo LEGS® is able to smoothly hit target position without delay. Piezo LEGS® is able to position sub-micrometers, or even down to the single nanometer.
4. Cost-effective solution
Compared to a traditional high-quality stepper motor and lead screw assembly, Piezo LEGS®LL06 is a cost-effective alternative. In addition, our precision motors is in many cases more compact than the corresponding stepper motor solution.
