Dynamic Function of the Ironless Linear Motor

The global linear motor market is projected to expand at a significant growth rate, due to the increasing adoption of ironless linear motors. Ironless linear motors do not possess an iron core. Therefore, no attractive force is present between primary and secondary parts, thus avoiding cogging. New innovations in direct drives are estimated to propel the global linear motor market in the coming years. A rise in the adoption of advanced technologies to achieve smooth motion and reduce heat dissipation is estimated to drive the linear motor market during the forecast period. Key market players are continuously enhancing their research and development expertise to design advanced technology in linear motors. Also, demand for a real-time interface between the overlaid machine control and direct drives is expected to augment the linear motor market.
