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.
