What are stepper motor good for?
- Positioning: Stepper motor requires precise positioning such as 3D printers, CNC, Camera platforms and X, Y plotters. And some disk drives also use stepper motor to position read/write head.
- Speed Control: Stepper motor allows for excellent control of rotational speed for process automation and robotics.
- Low speed Torque: A stepper motor has maximum torque at low speeds. So it is very good choice for applications requiring low speed with high precision too.
