Electric Hair Clipper Motor Solution

Project Background

A haircut is a common thing in our lives. Some people choose to go to the barbershop, while others buy a hair clipper to shave at home. But whether we shave our hair in a barbershop or at home, we can’t do without one thing-a hair clipper. If we want to have a hair clipper, we need to understand the components and working methods of the hair clipper. Most hair clippers have a body, battery, motor, and blade. The battery determines its life service, the electric motor determines its noise and stability, the blade determines its life service and quality, and the heart of a good hair clipper is a motor that drives the blade.

Working Principle of the Electric Hair Clipper

Clippers are pretty basic in terms of their general function. To keep things simple, it all starts with a power source. That could be from an AC power outlet or a built-in battery. The battery or power source then powers a simple and small motor. This motor then moves gears and cogs, which connect to a set of blades at the tip of the clippers. These blades move back and forth, cutting any hair they come into contact with.

Simply put, that is how clippers work. In fact, clippers have a simple function, and it does not take much to explain how they work. They don’t have many moving parts and are simple to understand. It’s not like quantum physics or rocket science.

How Does the Motor Work in the Electric Hair Clipper?

The motor drives electric hair clippers and attached to the motor is a piston that holds a set of small and sharpened blades shaped like teeth. Once you turn the power button on, the motor is powered by electricity and moves quickly horizontally with a slight vertical axis. This axis allows the blades to rub against each other quickly and allows hair to be cut evenly and efficiently.

Inside the electric hair clipper, the motor-driven electric blade regularly vibrates to achieve cutting. Kinmore provides an excellent power solution for electric hair clippers. Our motors offer high Torque, making your products more powerful and efficient. On the other hand, our DC motors can be driven with a small battery, which makes the product even smaller and portable.

Aiming at the role of the motor in the electric hair clippers, we provide a set of drive solutions and recommend the dc motor (FK-180SHV-2851).
