      Hello everybody,

      At the beginning I wanted to point out that I am beginning my adventure with designing.

      I have problem with my project, i.e. mounting the motor(+copuling+gear) to the linear module.

      I am not sure if the mounting, you can see attached (coupling adapter+gear+motor), is going to withstand. The motor's weight is 4,5kg and the rest (coupling+gear - about 1,5-2kg), the whole has length of 350mm.

      I've seen constructions in which the motor is directly mounted on the module but I'm not sure what about this one. Should be any additional holding elements added?

      Thank you for any answers!

      The motor need a housing so that holding force on motor shaft is kept minimal.

      Is this a part of the whole design?
      The motor cannot hang in the air like that definitely.
      The motor mount depends on the total facility design. Hence, coupling and gear need to be selected correctly.
      If your requirement is to put it like that aside - definitely there is a support for the motor should be or we are missing a part of the system on the picture.

      Obviously, the motor can not be hanging in the air without any support.
      Motors are very important and prime factors of any equipment hence it is important to assemble its gear in the right way.

      Once the motor is in motion it generates different forces, hence it should be fixed on the perfect support.
