New addition to the Micromech product range: Printed Motor Works (PMW) brushed pancake motors

About PMW
Printed Motor Works Limited is based in the UK with a manufacturing facility in Alton, Hampshire.

Founded in 1963, PMW Europe’s largest manufacturer of flat brushed DC pancake motors. As the world’s leading authority on the design and manufacture of pancake motors, PMW continue to explore new areas of application for this unique motor design.

About Pancake Motors
Pancake motors or printed armature motors and servodisc motors as they are also known, are used in various industrial applications particularly where rapid stop-start, zero cogging, low inductance, precise electronic motor control, a low thermal time constant or just a slim, axially flat packaging profile is required.

Printed Motor Works’ flat armature motors differ from conventional DC servomotors in their unique slotless disc armature design. This enables them to deliver a concentrated level of performance in both incremental motion and continuous speed that is not attainable with conventional iron-core motor designs.

GP Series

GP SeriesThe PMW GP series provides a cost effective servo capability in low volumes. Using flat armature technology the motor is ideal for general-purpose applications. Two magnet variants of each size are available: standard ferrite (GPM) and high-power neodymium magnets (GPN).

There is also a choice of either a standard series wound armature or a higher speed but lower torque parallel wound armature that has a lower resistance (LR). Armature sizes vary from 9cm to 16cm and higher on special request. This motor range has been popular in general servo applications requiring smooth movement and high acceleration/deceleration.

GM Series

PMW GM SeriesThe GM series (High Precision Compact Series) is an extremely accurate high power pancake motor range. The range can operate in high ambient temperatures of up to 150C, 302F for high performance industrial applications.

The range is available in 9cm, 12cm and 16cm armature diameter sizes, with standard and high power AlNiCo magnet options. Additionally, the GM series is available as a low resistance, i.e. parallel ‘winding’ (designated LR) motor perfectly suited for low voltage, battery or higher speed applications. This motor range is perfect in high-end servo applications requiring a compact motor with precise control.

GN Series

PMW GN SeriesThe GN series (High Precision Slim Series) is an extremely accurate high power motor range but is one third the axial thickness of the GM range, making it our flattest motor ever. The additional benefits of using NdFeB (Rare Earth) magnets are that it is possible for the motor to operate in low ambient temperatures down to-20C, -4F, for high performance industrial applications.

The range is available in 9cm, 12cm and 16cm armature diameter sizes. Additionally, the GN series is available as a low resistance, i.e. parallel ‘winding’ (designated LR) motor perfectly suited for low voltage, battery or higher speed applications. This motor range is suited to extreme high-end servo applications requiring an ultra-compact motor with perfect control.

GR Series

PMW  GR SeriesThe GR series (Ruggedised Series) is a high power pancake motor range with a rugged motor casing.

The range is available in 12cm,16cm and 19cm armature diameter sizes, with standard and high power AlNiCo magnet options. This motor is ideally suited to food industry applications.

GPG Series

GPG SeriesThe GPG9 and GPG12 series combine the GP series with an integrated slim gearbox to make a compact, lightweight and durable motor gearbox assembly. The GPG series provides a high quality, low cost solution to suit a wide range of applications.

The GPG9 is available with 2 gear ratios while the GPG12 is available with 8 alternative gear ratios from 206:1 to 10:1 each with 4 motor models to suit voltages from zero V to a maximum of 60V. An optional encoder or brake can also be fitted externally to the rear of the motor to provide a feedback or simple safety feature.
