Stepper vs Servo – which motor is better for my application?

e-Press Touch Ultrasonic Electropress

The short answer is, it depends on the application. For instance, typical ultrasonic assembly applications require an extremely slow and precise joining velocity, making them ideally suited for a stepper motor system, where the motor moves with absolute mathematical precision. More torque is available from a stepper motor in these ultrasonic applications that require slow, precise movement, enabling higher weld forces if needed. A stepper’s… More >
