Motor Sizer is a free web-based tool from Galil Motion Control that is designed to help users size their motion system. Essentially, the product directs users to specify their load and motion requirements for various mechanical systems so that it can determine which motors and amplifiers can best drive the load. The company says users can enter their own motor and amplifier type for analysis, then save the data for future reference. MotorSizer is a password-protected tool that requires user registration.
Additionally, the product lets users specify and analyze each axis in their motion system. Currently, the actuator types available for analysis include belt drive, lead screw, linear motor, rack and pinion, and rotary.
