Textile Machinery

Large-scale machinery was first introduced into the textile industry on a large scale during the Industrial Revolution. Many forms of textile machinery were invented at that time and still continue to be updated and improved today.

Textile machinery includes knitting machines, embroidery machines, hosiery machines, sewing machines, winders, tensioners, and more. For all of these machines, the major actuators are motors. Industry upgrades and productivity improvements have meant that over time, integrated brushless DC (BLDC) motors have begun replacing traditional stepper motors in these applications. 

 

Many textile machines require the cooperation of multiple motors. For textile applications, these motors must achieve accurate positioning and high velocity. 

 

Monolithic Motion smart motors and drive modules features a small size and high integration, enabling a compact, efficient solution for textile applications.

Features & Benefits:
  • Small size for space-limited applications, keeping machinery light
  • Modbus protocol over RS485 bus, providing low cost and robust communication
  • Higher acceleration and velocity than traditional stepper motors, with up to 3,000rpm operating speed
  • By supporting pulse/direction control interface, these servo motors can replace stepper motors without extra modifications to the system
  • Integrated magnetic position sensor works reliably in dusty environments
  • Long operating life with low noise and vibration
  • Easy to configure and perform with the MotionLAB virtual bench
  • Supports customization to meet individual application requirements
