Renishaw encoders drive improvements in the performance of direct-drive motors

October 2020

Haozhi Mechanical and Electrical (Haozhi), based in China, is an industry leader in direct-drive technology for machine tool and robotics applications.

Direct-drive (DD) motors are electric motors that directly transmit power to the application without the use of mechanical reduction elements such as gears, pulleys, chains or belts.

DD technology for linear motors and rotary tables has matured in recent years. It has significantly improved the overall performance of machine tools, which has enabled corresponding improvements in the quality, speed and efficiency of production machining. These benefits help manufacturers to reduce machining times and to drive down costs.

Haozhi builds direct-drive rotary (DDR) tables and linear motors with integrated high-performance optical encoder systems from Renishaw, which give Haozhi products a substantial competitive advantage.
