When many people hear the phrase “industrial automation,” their first thought go straight to robots. We know that isn’t the case; there are automated parts needed in many fields. Ensuring that something is being precisely held in place or that the positioning is correct is where stepper motors come in. Whatever part of the industrial automation field you may be involved in - CNC machining, optics, packaging - stepper motors may be critical. Fortunately, we distribute and understand them at RILCO Industrial Controls.

Operating with direct current, stepper motors take their name very seriously by dividing a full rotation into a number of steps. Holding a stepper motor in one of its many positions can be a necessary facet of industrial automated systems. Stepper motors do not need a feedback sensor, though, and operate as an open-loop system in many of their applications. Holding an exact position requires great precision, which is crucial to a functioning automation system.

Different from servomotors, again stepper motors do not require feedback sensors. More specifically, they don’t use feedback sensors when the motor is properly sized for the distinct application. Servomotors are a closed-loop mechanism and stepper motors operate as an open-looped mechanism. After rotating to the selected position, servomotors rest while stepper motors lock and hold on to the desired position. Depending on what area of automation you work in and what specific application you are working on, stepper motors may be the best choice for the job.

When your business needs only the best stepper motors to get the job done, RILCO Industrial Controls is the company to contact.

4 Benefits of Barcode Readers
Friday, April 20, 2018

Barcode technology has become widespread as it offers numerous benefits to many businesses. Barcodes were initially created to provide a solution to grocery retail stores, but their use quickly spread to other sectors as well. Barcodes were adopted by corporations for tracking their fixed assets. Libraries started using barcodes to manage their wide collections of books. Barcode readers thus became an essential part of business environment.

4 Ways in Which Technology has Benefitted the Manufacturing Industry
Thursday, April 5, 2018
“The future of manufacturing is in technology. The next generation of manufacturing champions will come from those companies that use brain power, not labor, to drive their innovations”

—Steven Moore

Technology has revolutionized manufacturing to a great extent. From aiding simple tasks like picking appropriate parts for the assembly-line from the warehouse to actually putting the parts together; RFID scanners, robots and automated programs have breathed a new life into the industry that was faltering ever since the Great Depression and the availability of low cost options in Asian and African regions. With more and more manufacturing units embracing the idea and benefits of the latest technologies, prospects have improved for all stakeholders across the board.
