    Wich of the following motors should I use in my 6dof project, I want to use planetary gearboxes to use it. My platform weights about 300kg and I was looking for Servos of around 1kW. Also how can you see wich driver I can use with each servo?

    Each servo drive is matched from the factory for certain servomotor. If you get them separate you will have to match them manually (encoder parameters, servo coil timings, PID calibration). Many of these servos in the market do this calibration via CAN or RS485, but its hard to find the software for it and if available could be in Chinese.

    Also make sure you can get a servo drive from source that can provide support (for settings and interface connections) as if you are going to rely only on the manual that the seller may give you, you may get stuck to nowhere.

    Do you have a plan how you are going to control the servo drives? Any certain interface? I assume you want to use it with simtools, not for CNC application...
