Stepper motors are DC motors that move in steps. Having computer controlled stepping means you can get very precise positioning and speed control. As stepper motors have precise repeatable steps they are ideal for applications that require precise positioning. Normal DC motors don't have much torque at low speeds but a stepper motor features maximum torque at low speeds.
