Common Types of Electric Motors

In both industrial and residential settings, electric motors keep tools/gadgets/appliances powered up and running strongly. There are different electric motors that are best-suited for different purposes. When you're looking for a new electric motor, be sure to visit a shop that has particular expertise with electric motor sales and service. At Industrial Motors and Machining Inc., our knowledgeable staff can set you up with just the right electric motor for your needs and budget. Here are four common kinds of electric motors.

AC Brushless Motors

For successful operation, AC brushless motors depend on permanent electromagnets. To turn the stator and rotor in sync, they use induction of a rotating magnetic field. AC brushless motors are quite popular because they are easy to use and have many applications. Also, they make less noise and are easier to maintain than other electric motors.

DC Brushed Motors

DC brushed motors continue to be used for industrial purposes such as paper machines and steel rolling mills, though in some situations brushed motors are being replaced with brushless models because the brushes can wear down and necessitate replacement. With DC brushed motors, the brush orientation on the stator is what governs current flow.

DC Brushless Motors

DC brushless motors tend to be smaller than their AC brushless counterparts, making them excellent options for small spaces. These motors rely on an embedded controller for operation, rather than a slip ring or commutator.

Linear Motors

These motors, which generally feature greater speed and accuracy than rotary motors, generate linear force along the device's length by way of an unrolled motor and stator.
