We are pleased to announce the introduction of five new step motors to Applied Motion's product line. These innovative motors come with hollow shafts, making them great choices for applications that require special shafts such as lead screw and nut assemblies. The hollow shaft permits a lead screw or other special shaft to be assembled directly to the rotor of the motor, simplifying the design and reducing the number of components. This design also reduces the size of the actuator assembly and minimizes cost compared to more complex actuator designs.

A hollow shaft step motor has a machined hole running axially through the center of the motor, in place of where the shaft would normally be.

Hollow shaft motors are great for applications that require a special shaft; including lead screw and nut assembly. The hollow shaft permits a lead screw to be assembled directly to the rotor of the step motor.

The inside diameter of the hollow shaft is 5 mm for NEMA 17 motors and 8 mm for NEMA 23 motors.

Hollow shaft step motors operate the same as step motors with standard shafts, so they can be used with the same type of drive electronics.
