The many varied applications of stepper motor:

micro-stepper-motorConsumer Electronics – Stepper motors in cameras for automatic digital camera focus and zoom functions. Stepper motors as actuators for mobile phones camera modules

Automotive and Aircraft – Stepper motors help enable cars, SUV’s and RV’s to receive telecommunication signals. Stepper motors are also used for cruise control, military antenna positioners, automated sensing devices, and automated cameras. In aircrafts, stepper motors are used in aircraft instruments, sensing devices, antennas, scanning equipment.

Office Equipment – Stepper motors are incorporated inside PC based scanning equipment, data storage tape drives, optical disk drive head driving mechanism, printers, bar-code printers, scannersstepper-motor

Medical – Step motors are used inside medical scanners, multi-axis stepper motor microscopic or nanoscopic motion control of automated devices, dispensing pumps, samplers, and chromatograph auto-injectors. Also found inside digital dental photography, fluid pumps, respirators, and blood analysis machinery

Industrial machines – Stepper motors are used in automotive gauges, machine tooling automated production equipment (single/multi axis stepper motor controllers) and also in retrofit kits [stepper motor controllers and motors] for CNC machine control

Scientific Instrumentation – Scientific Equipment Spectographs, observatory telescope positioning

Chemical – Mixing and sampling devices utilizing stepper motor controllers and single/multi axis stepper motor controlled environmental testing equipment.

Security – new surveillance products for the security industry

Gaming industry – Stepper motors are used in the motors that power slot machines, wheel spinners and card shufflers.
