Precision Microdrives launches 25mm Enclosed vibrating motor for mixing powders and liquids.
Precision Microdrives introduces the 325-100 25mm enclosed vibration motor. This motor is the first in a line of enclosed vibration motors that are easier to integrate into applications because there are no external moving parts.
June 14, 2011 - PRLog -- Precision Microdrives has launched a small 25mm enclosed vibrating motor, designed primarily for mechanical-aid functions, such as sorting, sifting and mixing powders and liquids in a bench-top environment. Because of it's convenient mounting fixtures, this motor is also used to help move wires, powders and particulate matter move along chutes, and hoppers.
This motor is the first in a line of enclosed vibrating motors that are easier to integrate into applications because there are no external moving parts. Enclosed vibrating motors differ from encapsulated vibrating motors; encapsulated motors are sealed and designed for overmoulding, often with low-temperature and pressure plastics like silicon.
Enclosed vibrating motors on the other hand are designed to be bolted onto or into solid structures where there is a risk of the eccentric mass that generates vibration is obstructed. To aid the mounting, the 325-100 enclosed vibrating motor has M3 fixing points.
A lot of the small vibrating motors produced by Precision Microdrives are used in equipment to agitate liquids, powders, jewels, leads, beads, pellets and the like. Too small to operate on an industrial scale, applications are primarily in bench-top machines.
Enclosed vibrating motors like the 325-100 are ideal for these type of uses because securing them to the side of a hopper or chute is as simple as adding a couple of screws. Because there are no external moving parts, there is no risk of stray particles fouling the motor mechanism.
Enclosed vibration motors can also be easier to retrofit into equipment to offer larger amplitude haptic feedback. In many cases this can be as simple as bolting the vibration motor to a bulkhead and wiring it to a suitable electrical trigger system.
Precision Microdrives also carries a range of encapsulated vibrating motors which are typically smaller, but are designed to be over-moulded and are water resistant.
The 25mm vibrating motor has solder terminal tags for electrical connections, though Precision Microdrives frequently adds customised leads, harnesses and connectors based on customer specifications. This vibration motor is also a stocked part and is therefore available in quantities of 1+, off-the-shelf.
