Motor sizing

General procedure

The sizing of linear motors is mainly determined by the application-related characteristics of velocity and feed force. First of all, the user should determine velocity and force profiles for the required application and set the proper parameters about payload, thrust force, ambient temperature and axis tilt. Then, the choice of the motor size is given either by simply calculating its physical limits, or by using a motor sizing application.
