Sonic motorskoco Motion have now Sonic motors included in his program. The drives, available in sizes from 14 to 32 mm, are often used in toothbrushes, massage or facial cleansing devices. The manufacturer's drives are compact, run quietly and are very reliable. Visually, the Sonic motors hardly differ from normal rotary drives. But what are Sonic motors anyway?

A Sonic motor just vibrates instead of having to do a complete rotation. These vibrations can be adjusted via the frequency. Due to the structure without springs and mechanical commutation sparks, they offer a very long service life.

The vibrations are transmitted through short movements of approx. 30 to 40 degrees. As a rule, the frequency is 90 to 350 Hz. The optimal frequency of the DC Motors depends on the mass to be moved and the moment of inertia.

Optimize control individually

The controls can be optimized customer-specifically. The optimal frequency can be adjusted through test runs of the mass to be moved and component geometry such as the brush. The expected movements and the desired feel are achieved in this way.

In addition, the motor shafts can be specifically adapted to the application. For example, the brush head of the toothbrush can be changed quickly.

More news from Koco Motion

  • Hannover Messe Hall 5, Stand A31 Cover story Koco Motion and Adlos have revised their ingenious unique platform "Kannmotion". The cooperation partners present the generation 2.0 drive consisting of a stepper motor with integrated control and encoder. Electronic and mechanical improvements were made and the software further developed. The operating tool for the stepper motors has also been completely revised. It now supports users even better in integrating the platform into their product development.
  • Koco Motion has now added Sonic motors to its range. The drives, which are available in sizes from 14 to 32 mm, are often used in toothbrushes, massage or facial cleansing devices. The manufacturer's drives are compact, run quietly and are very reliable. Visually, the Sonic motors hardly differ from normal rotary drives. But what are Sonic motors anyway?
  • Brushless external rotor drives combine a small installation space with a high power density. With the BO6452N3B, Koco Motion presents a new addition to the product family that offers impressive parameters thanks to the choice of materials and magnets. Outputs in the four-digit range can be generated from small sizes.
  • With the EM_S, Koco Motion presents the next generation of stepper motor drivers that are controlled via the clock direction interface. They offer better setting options, are even easier to use and have better performance than their predecessors. For the factory of the future, the drivers are available with either CAN open or Ethercat interfaces.
  • SPS Hall 3, Booth 240 The ironless DC motors from Koco Motion have already proven their worth in many applications. They are very efficient, offer high speeds and a long service life. Now the drive specialist is expanding its series of 'Coreless Motors' with new versions that are specially designed for the requirements in medical technology and safety technology.
  • Olaf Kämmerling, Managing Director of Koco Motion GmbH, Mannheim, introduces the company as a system provider whose offer today goes far beyond that of a pure distributor.

  • Hannover Messe Hall 14, Stand L35 Cover story Stepper motor linear actuators are on the rise, especially if they can eliminate the complex pneumatic cylinders. At Koco Motion, their share of total sales has increased disproportionately in recent years. Reason enough to take a look behind the scenes of the extensive portfolio, which is available in a standard version and customized - the latter with an increasing trend.
  • Dr. Gerrit Kocherscheidt (44) has been the new managing director of Koco Automotive GmbH since January 2018. The physicist takes over the sister company of Koco Motion GmbH, founded in 2013. Both companies are located in Dauchingen.
  • Cover story Not yet available a few years ago, the share of DC motors (DC) now accounts for 70 percent of the entire Koco Motion portfolio - and the trend is rising. The drive specialist's extensive and also customer-specific executable DC motor program covers a power range from 0,06 to 1670 W. Brushed and brushless motors are available in numerous designs for a wide variety of applications.
