The slotless stator design originated with the goal to deliver smooth-running performance and eliminate cogging, which is an unwanted characteristic especially in slower-running applications (less than 500 rpm).  The absence of cogging is, in fact, the most-often cited reason for selecting a slotless brushless motor.

ElectroCraft RapidPower high-speed brushless motors feature ball-bearing construction, dynamically balanced rotors, low vibration and low audible and magnetic noise.

ElectroCraft RP17 Brushless Motor

ElectroCraft RP17 Brushless Motor

By utilizing M-8 ceramic and rare-earth neodymium magnets, these BLDC motors provide the quick acceleration and consistent speed (up to 15,000 rpm) needed for applications such as centrifuges, fans and pumps.   Sealed ball bearings and reduced torque ripple from skewed magetization also ensure a smooth operation at any speed.

They are compatible with all three-phase brushless DC motor amplifiers and have optional 500 or 1000cpr encoders.
