Couplings The coupling connects the drive pin of the axis to the motor. An elastic polymer insert in the centre of the coupling transfers the motor torque. This dampening element compensates for radial and axial clearance.
  • With square or round housing
  • Temperature range from -30°C up to +100°C
  • Shore hardness 98 Sh A

Frequently asked questions

How does an electric motor work?

An electric motor converts electrical energy into mechanical energy through electromagnetic forces, causing a rotor to spin within a magnetic field.

How to test an electric motor

You can apply voltage to the motor to see if it spins freely, checking for abnormal noises, and ensuring it operates within specifications. Contact our experts for more information.

What are the different types of electric motors?

igus® provide a variety of motors:

  •  EC/BLDC motors
  •  DC (direct current) motors
