UK launch for MOONS’ Industries

27 February 2024

MOTORS AND drives specialist MOONS’ Industries has announced the launch of Moons’ Industries (UK) based in Reading, Berkshire. This development is the latest chapter of a journey which started nearly 30 years ago building on a commitment to solving problems and meeting the need of its customers.

Shanghai based MOONS’ Industries manufactures an extensive range of motion control products from facilities in Asia, North America and Europe. Founded in 1994, the business is is a global top 3 manufacturer with a yearly shipment of more than 30 million motors of all types, including 10 million hybrid stepper motors.

Moons’ is recognised as developing high quality motion control products and offers a range which includes over 12 types of motors and actuators with a focus very much on developing innovative slotless and coreless motors.

The slotless brushless DC motor range includes 11 types of winding, with the ø16mm series of slotless BLDC motors available in short, long and XL versions with three different power outputs, while the latest MICRO options includes slotless motor, gearbox, encoder, driver, and mechanical components. Coreless Brushed DC motors, which provide excellent performance and are easier to control, are available in 6 diameters of 8, 10, 13, 16, 17 and 24mm. The innovative hollow rotor design enables rapid acceleration combined with low rotational inertia, no cogging and no iron loss, housed in a compact and light package.  When coupled with a gearbox they can deliver high torque, while the encoder can be used for precise positioning applications.

MOONS’ understands that choosing the right motor for a motion control application can significantly impact product performance, improving reliability and at lower cost. With so many types of DC motors available – permanent magnet steppers, hybrid steppers, brushless DC, step servos and slotless motors – it’s tricky to know which one to choose. However, the combination of the company's extensive product range and advanced technology, along with a ‘customer-first’ focus, will help UK customers to optimise the performance of their systems.
