|How high temperature can the stepping motor be used at?|
|The permissible temperature depends on the models and it described in the drawings. If the insulation of the motor is Class B, the permissible temperature for the coil is 130°C. The motor can be used if the temperature at motor surface is around 100°C or less. Since heat affects the ball bearing life, try to use the motor at lowest temperature possible.|
|Is there any way to reduce heat generation of stepping motor?|
|1) Adjust operation current if there is enough torque margin.
2) Adjust dwell time between motions.
3) Install the motor on a plate with good heat conductivity.
4) Use cooling fan.
|Is it all right the motor shaft get machined?|
|When the shaft is machined, some impact may be felt by the ball bearings within the motor. When using servo motors, encoder might be damaged as well.|
|Is there any way to suppress vibration of stepping motor?|
|1) Use a damper.
2) Adjust the operating current if there is enough torque margin.
3) Use microstep drive.
4) Use gearhead.
