Motion Control - ServoBelt-150 Rotary Stage from Intellidrives!

Intellidrives Motion Control Rotary Stage - ServoBelt 150

Small Package with Large Through-Hole High Performance at Low Cost Low Profile Robust Design










Philadelphia, PA, -- Motion Control Components and Systems - ServoBelt Rotary Stage offers an economical solution for a variety of light and medium-duty rotary motion applications. The RTHP-B-150 features large clear aperture of 150 mm and provides arc-second resolution when driven from a micro-stepping or brushless servomotor controller. The low profile design is made possible by the use of compact precision bearing. The rotating carriage of the stage provides unlimited motorized rotation angle of the load up to 50kg and has large clear aperture to allow the passage of the optical path or cables directly through the stage. The main body of the stage is made from lightweight anodized aluminum and can attach directly to an optical table or moving linear or XY actuators and can be mounted at any orientation. RTHP-B-150 stage uses belt drive with stepper or brushless servo motor to achieve high rotating speed. Lightweight design makes it easy to incorporate this rotary stage into high dynamics XY-Theta multi-axes stages.

New Planetary Robotic Gearbox Available from Electromate!

Electromate - Motion Control Planetary Robotic Gearboxes

Patented design guarantees that backlash will not increase over the life time of the gearbox










Vaughan, Ontario, Canada -- Motion Control Components -- The GPL-V (shaft) and GPL-H (hollow) are our lowest backlash (≤ 0.1 arc minute ) planetary gearboxes for horizontal and vertical robotic applications. A patented design guarantees that the backlash will not increase over the life time of the gearbox. Very high tilting rigidity results in excellent positioning accuracy with a rated 20,000 hours which is over 3x longer than comparable gearboxes in the market.

The noise level of 65dB compared to 69dB of comparable models makes it ideal for MRI applications where low noise levels are critical.

New Power-Off Brakes for NEMA 17 & NEMA 23 Servo and Step Motors!

Motion Control Power Off Brakes from Servo2Go










Greenville, DE —-Motion Control Components - The MPC is a power-off brake module with an output shaft. The unit mounts directly on to a NEMA C-Face servo or stepper motor and the output can also be coupled to a NEMA C-Face gear reducer.

This brake is designed to decelerate or hold an inertial load when the voltage is turned off. When voltage is applied, the friction disc is released and the brake is free of torque.
