Types of Motors Used in Robotic Automation

Used robot parts – Servo motors used in Robotics

Used robot parts for used industrial robots – A servo motor is an electrical device which can push or rotate an object with great precision, specific angles or distance.  Therefore, it is a simple motor which runs through a mechanism. Motors is a tough task because certain parameters need to be specified for the right section of the motors on robots.  Some of these important parameters are arms control, position, angular and linear movements.


The main parts of the mechanism are controlled device, output sensor and feedback system, Servo motors are used in applications related to robotics, automated manufacturing plant or CNC machines.  However, there are many types of motors such as servo motors, smart motors, AC motors, DC motors, Stepper motors or electrical motors.

Selecting a proper Motor for used robots

There are many industries that include robots, which consist of arms control that perform a task or applications such as cutting, painting, welding, material handling, sealing and others. Industries need to learn about motors because robotics depend on motors to carry out the application. A proper selection of robotics motors can save your time and money.


Some of the advantages are:

  • High speeds operation
  • No out-of-step condition
  • High intermittent torque
  • Work  for velocity control
  • Available in different sizes
  • Noiseless motor


Some of the disadvantages are:

  • Higher cost
  • More expensive than stepper motors
  • Not suitable if you need to avoid vibration
  • Require feedback because cannot work open loop
  • Not suitable for precision control of rotation
  • More maintenance due to brushes on brushed DC motor

Used robot industry’s applications

Servo motors are used in applications requiring rapid variations in speed without the motor getting overheated such as automated smart factory, material handling, assembly lines, packaging and machine tools. Also, there are many industries using servo motors, for example, aerospace to control position, automotive industry, electronic devices and CNC machine.
