Frameless Brushless ARC Segment Torque Motor from H2W Technologies, Inc.
Santa Clarita, CA -- Motion Control Components - H2W has developed an unhoused arc segmented frameless brushless torque motor (TWR-070-410-1150-3PH) with low inertia moving coil assembly for high angular acceleration applications. The rotary 3-phase brushless motor, also known as a rotary servo motor, is a direct drive motor that is ideal for limited or unlimited, closed loop servo, rotary motion applications. It can generate a continuous/peak torque of 480 in-lbs [53 Nm]/1440 in-lbs [159 Nm]. It has been designed to have a 70° rotation and operate on a 20” (500 mm) radius, but additional modular magnet tracks (33° each) can be added to increase angular displacement.
Application Story - Steinmeyer optiSLITE Miniature Ball Screws the Optimal Solution for Pipetting Systems!
BURLINGTON, MA --Motion Control Components Application - Steinmeyer, a global manufacturer of precision ground ball screws, recently introduced an enhancement to its miniature ball screw line called optiSLITE. This feature delivers lower friction torque for smoother running and better servo response. The result is superior positioning performance in laboratory instrument applications, such as pipetting and dispensing.
Integrated IP65 Stepper Motors Available from Servo2Go!
Greenville, DE - Motion Control Components - SWM integrated steppers from Applied Motion Products Inc. are IP65 rated drive+motor units, fusing step motor and drive components into a single splash proof and dustproof device. This space-saving design eliminates wiring and saves on cost over conventional motor and drive solutions.
The SWM24 integrated steppers combine high torque NEMA 24 step motors with a sophisticated, 6.0 A/phase (peak-of-sine) step motor drive. Power to the drive, located at the rear of the motor, must be supplied by an external DC supply. Applied Motion offers compatible 24 and 48 volt DC power supplies for exactly this purpose.
High Acceleration, High Precision, Brushless Linear Motors from Moticont!
Van Nuys, CA - Motion Control Components - The off-the-shelf, LBIM-021 Series of Linear Three-phase Brushless Servo Motors from Moticont are sized to fit a broad range of linear motion applications. These low cost, compact linear motors feature: High acceleration, high speed, high accuracy, high repeatability, and high precision to less than one micron (0.00004 in.). The LBIM-021 Linear motor series is comprised of four sizes of forcers (the moving part of a linear motor) and matching magnetic tracks creating forces of 8.7 lbs (38.7 N), 16.3 lbs (72.4 N), 23.1 lbs (102.9 N), and 31.0 lbs (138.1 N) at 10% duty cycle. The light weight ironless forcers have no iron providing high acceleration, low inertia, and cog free motion. These high speed, non-contact brushless linear motors are ideal for a variety of: Medical, manufacturing, scanning, inspection, laser cutting, and precision assembly applications.
Motion Control Application- Maxon Drives Help People Walk Again!
At the first Cybathlon in Zürich, researchers are presenting the world's best exoskeletons devices that enable paraplegics to walk again. Motors from Switzerland play a central part in this development.
Fall River, MA -- Motion Control Components Application - On October 8th 2016, people with paraplegia are going on a footrace at the Cybathlon in Zürich. Aided by exoskeletons, they will compete against each other on an obstacle course to show the public how far advanced technology has come in this area.
Switzerland, is playing a central role in this process. Many of the exoskeletons are fitted with components from the canton of Obwalden components without which there wouldn't be a lot of movement to be observed.
Precision 30 mm Clear Aperture Vertical Rotation Stage from OES!
Van Nuys, CA -- Motion Control - The precision AR59-AV Motorized, 30 mm Clear Aperture Vertical Rotation Stage from Optimal Engineering Systems, Inc. (OES) features a 180:1 precision worm drive and deep grove ball bearings for a high resolution of ± 0.001O when microstepping (10 micro steps-per-step). The parallelism of the table is less than 50µm. The AR59-AV vertical rotation stage is ideal for: Micro robotics, metrology, vision systems, positioning of mirrors and lasers, laser machining or scribing, electronic assembly, testing, and photonics.
Ethernet/IP Marquees connect directly to the Rockwell Ethernet/IP Network!
Greenville, DE --Motion Control Components - The Ethernet IP Marquee revolutionizes the industrial market on how a marquee sign should connect and communicate on the Rockwell Ethernet/IP network. The Ethernet IP Marquee has a built in WEB server, eliminating the need to install software to program the marquee sign. Setup of the display is as simple as opening a WEB browser on your computer and entering the IP address of the marquee sign. With its fully integrated package, the Ethernet IP Marquee allows the user to configure and broadcast plc data and message information without programming communication blocks within the ladder logic code of the plc.
XY Gantry Robot with Theta-Control from Intellidrives!
Philadelphia, PA, -- Motion Control Components and Systems - Repeatability and accuracy are essential characteristics of any motion control system, and the objective of the design is to assure the desired trajectories can accurately follow through the working range of the system.
Single Plane Dual Axis Air Bearing Voice Coil Positioning Stage from H2W Technologies, Inc.!
Santa Clarita, CA -- Motion Control Components - The VCS15-050-AB-LV-2 is a closed loop single plane dual axis positioning stage with air bearings.
