The First Maker-Friendly Guide to Electric Motors! Makers can do amazing things with motors. Yes, they’re more complicated than some other circuit elements, but with this book, you can completely master them. Once you do, incredible new projects become possible. Unlike other books, Motors for Makers is 100% focused on what you can do. Not theory. Making. First, Matthew Scarpino explains how electric motors work and what you need to know about each major type: stepper, servo, induction, and linear motors. Next, he presents detailed instructions and working code for interfacing with and controlling servomotors with Arduino Mega, Raspberry Pi, and BeagleBone Black. All source code and design files are available for you to download from motorsformakers.com. From start to finish, you’ll learn through practical examples, crystal-clear explanations, and photos. If you’ve ever dreamed of what you could do with electric motors, stop dreaming...and start making! Understand why electric motors are so versatile and how they work Choose the right motor for any project Build the circuits needed to control each type of motor Program motor control with Arduino Mega, Raspberry Pi, or BeagleBone Black Use gearmotors to get the right amount of torque Use linear motors to improve speed and precision Design a fully functional electronic speed control (ESC) circuit Design your own quadcopter Discover how electric motors work in modern electric vehicles--with a fascinating inside look at Tesla’s patents for motor design and control!

Rapidly Solidified Neodymium-Iron-Boron Permanent Magnets details the basic properties of melt spun NdFeB materials and the entire manufacturing process for rapidly solidified NdFeB permanent magnets. It covers the manufacturing process from the commercial production of the melt spun or rapidly solidified powder, to the production and properties of both isotropic bonded Nd and hot deformed anisotropic NdFeB magnets. In addition, the book discusses the development and history of bonded rare earth transition metal magnets and the discovery of the NdFeB compound, also covering melt spun NdFeB alloys and detailing the magnetization process and spring exchange theory. The book goes over the production of melt spinning development, the operation of a melt spinner, the processing of melt spun powder, commercial grades of NdFeB magnetic powder and gas atomized NdFeB magnetic powders. Lastly, the book touches on the major application and design advantages of bonded Nd Magnets. Features a unique perspective as the author is not only the inventor of NdFeB magnetic powder, but also played a key role in developing many of the technologies covered Provides a comprehensive look at the history, fundamental properties, production processes, design and applications of bonded NdFeB magnets Includes discussion of the rare earth supply challenge, politics, and systems as it impacts bonded NdFeB magnets
