As automation grows across industries, demand increases for servo motors. Robotics, CNC (computer numerical control) machinery and automated manufacturing all rely on sophisticated, high-quality servo motors providing top energy efficiency and reliable performance based on semiconductor solutions from Infineon's portfolio.
A servo motor is made up of a compatible motor coupled to a sensor that gives feedback about position. In addition, servo motors require refined and specifically defined controllers. As a rotary actuator, it enables precise control of position, velocity and acceleration. A unique characteristic of the servo motor is that it consumes power while rotating to the desired position and then rests upon arrival. The servo motor’s ability to combine precise motion control with high torque levels makes it the perfect fit for automation and robotics while leading to higher levels of precision and efficiency.
