Induction motors with some degrees of freedom (more than one) belong to unconventional drives which offer wider possibilities of motion than traditional drives. These motors constitute a small group of electric drives, however, new requirements for mechatronic devices are the cause of growing interest in their steady and regular development. As far as rotary-linear motors are concerned, they can be used in devices dedicated to mixing and drilling ensuring both rotary and linear movements. Because of the complex construction of such motors, their manufacturing process is expensive. In order to reduce these costs, the authors develop and propose the concept of the 3-phase rotary-linear machine built-up on the basis of a standard 3-phase squirrel-cage motor. This approach results in the significant reduction of manufacturing costs through the use of prefabricated parts (e.g. complete stator, stack of stator sheets, motor housing), as well as allowing the partial adoption of technologies used for standard induction motors.
