Key and keyway dimensions

The key and keyway dimensions for servomotors vary depending on the motor manufacturer and specific model. However, most motors have standardised dimensions for their keys and keyways. For example, the standard keyway size for a 3/8″ shaft is typically 3/32″ x 3/64″, while for a 1/2″ shaft, it is usually 1/8″ x 1/16″. The key […]

Bore and shaft tolerances

Bore and shaft tolerances are critical parameters for servomotors. Bore tolerance refers to the allowable deviation in the inner diameter of the motor’s mounting aperture, while shaft tolerance refers to the allowable deviation in the motor shaft’s diameter. These tolerances are essential to maintain the accuracy and precision of the motor’s movement and position control. […]

When a servo motor that’s big enough isn’t big enough

servo motor is not big enough

It might seem a strange statement, but yes, you read that right—there are certain operating conditions where servomotors that should be big enough for an application are actually too small! Too small that is in terms of their power rating, which for most applications is a perfectly acceptable way of selecting the right size motor. […]
