In this post I will review major mechatronics suppliers (electrical and mechanical), these are who supply the motors, cabling, screens, LEDS, buttons, tools etc’. There are many suppliers: Mouser, Digikey, Rs Components, Arrow and many more. All offer good equipment, specifications and delivery. Essential for any project.
So, In the previous post I explained how to get 3D CAD models of the mechanical part required for the project, I’ll bet that most of the projects these days integrate some kind of electro-mechanical integration whether it will be small IOT device or 15[m] production line machine.
Example: finding stepper motor (electrical mechanical part)
Let’s dive directly to the practicals – and get a stepper motor for our project, (used in every 3D printer, robot and printer) we can either browse through the menus:
Apply the filters and get the desired stepper motor (Or you can use the search option).
One important note about these sites, they will stock the common items, and give you general idea of what is available in the market (very important) but if a special actuator is needed – more accurate, energy saver, faster, or any other feature – it will require much deeper research work in finding the right product and supplier, Good luck!
