STEPPER MOTORS vs. SERVO MOTORS

 

STEPPER MOTORS

Stepper motors are permanent magnetic motors that 'step' one increment each time the controller gives its control electronics one pulse. This is done with the assumption that the shaft rotates the specified number of steps. No realtime feedback is provided to assure the motor maintains pace with the desired motion sequence.

 

 

SERVO MOTORS

Servo motors are standard DC or brushless motors with an encoder feedback loop. The computer reads the position of the motor and controls the power applied to the motor. Servo motors are faster moving point to point and are better at accelerating very heavy loads.
