I'd like to create something similar to a hydraulic press. I know I need some sort of motor, but I was curious about a fundamental question about motors when used in a system where the force required to continue motion increases.
General question: if a motor is under stress and the intended motion is impeded to some degree, does the motor get damaged?
Literal example: what happens to the motor of a ceiling fan if you grab the fan to immediately stop it? Does this damage the motor? Are there motors that expect resistance and either increase the torque or stop immediately?
