Amherst, Mass. -VisualSizer helps users of motion control products select the smallest and most cost-effective motor for an application, says the supplier. It guides users through a three-step selection process and the variety of motor calculations needed, showing configuration of the motion axes. The generic Microsoft Windows-based program is not limited to certain motor manufacturers. VisualSizer’s database contains over 500 motors, with more databases available later as Internet downloads.
