Type of Grease Used in Step Motors

Postby om_tech_support_JT » Wed Dec 05, 2012 1:26 pm

Q: What type of grease do you use in your round-shaft (ungeared) step motors?

A: Since the ball bearing inside our motor is the only rotating part causing friction, the only grease we have in a round-shaft step motor is inside the ball bearing. However, we do not specify the type of grease or the ball bearing in our literature because it is considered proprietary to Oriental Motor. The ball bearing is rated for the specifications given for the product, so as long as you use the motor within specifications, the product will be fine. If you are trying to operate the motor outside of its specifications such as ambient temperature, humidity, or speed, please contact us for more information.
